Pope Francis strips Jesus of His Divinity
In a homily of March 15th, 2016, Pope Francis makes a number of claims that raise numerous questions:
* “The Son of Man became sin.”
* “emptied of His Divinity” [on the Cross]
* “The Lord said to Moses: ‘make a bronze serpent and mount it on a pole and whoever looks at it after being bitten will live.’ It’s a mystery: God doesn’t kill the serpents but leaves them alone. But if one of these (serpents) harms a person, look at that bronze serpent and he will be healed. Lift up the serpent.”
The Pope noted that this verb, ‘lift up’ is at the heart of the argument between Christ and the Pharisees described in the reading by the gospel of St. John. At a certain point, Jesus says: ‘When you lift up the Son of Man, then you will realise that I AM.” First of all, he explained, ‘I AM’ is also the name that God used to describe himself and gave to Moses for communicating with the people of Israel. And, then there is that recurring expression: ‘Lift up the Son of Man…”1
Jesus took on man’s sins in order to redeem them but at no point did He become sin. This would imply He has no divinity or lost His divinity.
By suggesting “emptied of His Divinity”, somehow Jesus could have His Divinity removed which again goes against Church Teachings.
The last portion comparing the serpent made by Moses when it was lifted up would heal to the raising up of Jesus on the Cross implying that He is the serpent that saves. There are no words for such false incoherent musings.
Romans 1: 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Book of Truth prophecy:
“My Son is your Divine Saviour, Who lowered Himself to become man. When He was born, the Word became Flesh and so Jesus Christ was a man, in every way. Jesus was like you, in all things, except sin, for that would have been impossible. The Son of God was sent to redeem humanity and save each of you from the death, which comes from enslavement to Satan. His Divinity is All-Powerful, All Good, All Impenetrable and to deny His Divinity is to deny the Power of God. When you do this, you are declaring your allegiance to the devil.” –Apr 11, 2014
