To err is human to really mess up you must be Pope Francis!
I don’t normally pay much attention to what the Bishop of Rome says but he has said something that is utterly ridiculous and Blasphemous!
Bergoglio the Blasphemer…“Pope” Francis: ‘The Church is like Mary and has Flaws’” he must recanto or face the fires of hell!
The direct quote is: “The Church and the Virgin Mary are mothers, both of them; what is said of the Church can be said also of Our Lady and what is said of Our Lady can also be said of the Church”…“Do we love the Church as we love our mothers, also taking into account her defects? All mothers have defects, we all have defects, but when we speak of our mother’s defects we gloss over them, we love her as she is. And the Church also has her defects: but we love her just as a mother. Do we help her to be more beautiful, more authentic, more in harmony with the Lord?” – Antipope Francis
Now seems to me Christ died for us and the Church making the church spotless and without blemish…or at least that is what the Holy Scripture teaches!
Ephesians 5:25-27 (KJV): 25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it; 26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, 27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Revelations 19:7-8 (Aramaic Bible in English): 7 We rejoice and celebrate! We give him glory, because the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has prepared herself!” 8 And it was given to her to wear fine linen, pure and bright, for the fine linen is the uprightness of The Holy Ones.”
To say the church is flawed goes not only against infallible doctrine but it is a direct blaspheme of Holy Scripture. The Church is self is not flawed, though we it’s members are we are sinners, redeemed by the bridegroom (Jesus), yet sinners still the same. To say our Blessed Lady is flawed is downright wrong. AVE MARIA, gratia plena, Dominus tecum. (The words of the Archangel Gabriel to our Blessed Mother).
