Asked by one of the students Friday how a Christian should treat people of other faiths or no faith, the pope said that we are all the same, all children of God and that true disciples of Jesus do not proselytize.
Pope Francis said that his experience growing up in Argentina with its waves of immigration was a great help in learning to respect other people.
There is a mixture of blood, a strong miscegenation in Argentina I am the son of a migrant and this made for a culture of coexistence, he said. I went to public school and we always had companions from other religions. We were educated to coexistence.
This taught me a lot, that we are all the same, all children of God and this purifies your gaze, it humanizes it, he said. In Argentina, there is a small group of narrow-minded Catholics who do not want Jews, do not want Muslims but this group, I never liked it, it is a fringe group, they have a cultural magazine but they do not have impact in society and when I used to teach I saw them for what they were, this is the secret.
Pope Francis went on to say that a Christian should never try to convince others of the truth of Christianity, but should simply give a testimony of consistency and wait for others to ask about the faith.

Ah, Universalism. The ultimate lie of the lazy unbeliever.
The reality is the opposite. All religions may be wrong but they can’t all be right.
I call upon Roman Catholics to depart from this mess and turn to Christianity and begin to follow Christ, and only Christ.
Matthew 7:15 ?
Hey Catholics, at least the lefties are TRYING to get rid of Trump for IMAGINED Constitutional offenses
Idolatry is committed, not merely by setting up false gods, but also by setting up false devils; by making men afraid of war or alcohol, or economic law, when they should be afraid of spiritual corruption and cowardice.
On his very rare best days, this pope is a fool. On all the other days he is an idiot. He does not serve Christ well, and does great harm, daily, to his church.
I’m no fan of this Pope, however the title is misleading. To share ones faith is different from what he actually said. Prosletizing is attempting to convert someone. Sharing ones faith to me means just that. It’s up to the person what he or she decides to do with it.
--Matthew 28:18-20 (underline emphasis is mine)
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
Its constant work and the CRIMINAL STATE is much bigger than we imagined. Otherwise...
Liberty(right Rush?)/Freedom/Individuals/Christianity paid a heavy price to get into The Collectivists Cup. It battled down the backstretch but broke down in the far turn (they shoot horses dont they?). Down the stretch it was Marx vs. Mohammed. At the wire it was Mohammed by a head.
Analysis of Milestones - Sayyid Qutb (VERY fascinating book if you have the time)
Qutbs ideological consequence has been compared to that of Hitler and he has been deemed as significant [to Islamism] as Lenin was to Communism. The sweeping influence of Qutbs work has earned him the designation of [the radical Islamic] Karl Marx and, unequivocally, the Arab worlds first important theoretician of the Islamist cause.
ONLY those who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior are “Children of God”.
The rest are just “created by God”.
This is something ANY “pope” should know. All “REAL” Christians know this.
Christ Says (Mark 16:14-15): "Afterward he appeared to the eleven themselves as they were reclining at table, and he rebuked them for their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they had not believed those who saw him after he had risen. And he said to them, Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation."
Who you gonna believe? Me or your lying eyes!?
Yes! And Mark 16:15-16, Matthew 28:19 and quite a few others. My Catholic brother no longer discusses the Pope at his family dinner table -they are all disgusted.
Yeah, Jesus probably didn’t know what he was talking about.
“I have revealed you to them, and I will continue to do so. Then your love for me will be in them, and I will be in them.” — John 17:26 NLT
“Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations,b baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” — Mt. 28:19,20 NLT
Pope John Lennon... without John’s wit and charm.
Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man.
I believe he is pure evil
It’s looking that way...SMH
We are all children of God but some have really strayed, and have not yet reserved a place in heaven...it is our duty to profess our belief and dependence on Christ to witness to others who may have not yet grasped the wonderful gift of Jesus.
Explains why the Pope never seems to preach Jesus...he finds Jesus anathema to his leftist outlook.
