First, the serious consensus is that Pope Francis is NOT the Antichrist. He is, without question, the Spirit of Antichrist, but not the individual Antichrist himself. Why? The Antichrist will be A.) extremely intelligent, which Bergoglio is not, and B.) teaching and tradition with regards to the Antichrist holds that he will be a layman.
What the serious consensus today is, however, is that there is a very, very high probability that Francis is the False Prophet forerunner of the Antichrist, who is paving the way and laying the groundwork for the Antichrist.
John the Baptist was executed for defending the sanctity of Marriage vis-a-vis the state, namely King Herod. Bergoglio is himself attacking Marriage, and not only fails to speak out against the state, but is openly cooperating with it as an ally.
John the Baptist was genuinely unconcerned with the material and everything he said and did was in regards to the human soul and its eternal fate. Francis is an utter materialist who frames everything up to and including the slaughter of preborn children in material terms, and says hardly anything about the eternal fate of the soul and was reported to have confessed in an interview his belief in the heresy of Soul Annihilation, which has gone uncorrected in any way to this day.
John the Baptist proselytized the One True Faith, and the essentiality of baptism. Francis condemns proselytization, tells people he has no interest or desire to convert them to Christianity, and openly embraces false religions.
John the Baptist preached repentance. Bergoglio denies the need for repentance and casts this as “mercy”.
John the Baptist’s charge was to “Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight His paths.” Francis has stated and has as his motto “hagan lio”, which means in Spanish, “make a mess” or more colloquially, “raise hell”. Francis proudly sows utter chaos.
John the Baptist diminished himself so that Christ might shine. Bergoglio diminishes Christ so that Francis might enjoy more worldly popularity and “power”.
Now, read the following quote from this glowing article from a New Jersey newspaper about a sodomite priest at a local parish and then sit in stillness with the full horror of what damage Francis has done in just over two years. He now has people denying that GOD HIMSELF will judge us for our sins. Stop and think about that. Use logic and progress your way through that. If “p”, then “q”. If “q” then “r”. If “r” then “s”.
Where it leads, and leads quickly, is to nihilism (the utter rejection of all moral principles, and the belief that life is meaningless), utter hedonism and mass murder.
Hoboken resident Caren Rankin, a parishioner of Saints Peter and Paul Church, was similarly unfazed and supportive of the news [that the new parish priest is an open, unrepentant sodomite]. She didn’t think it would bother her friends in the church, either.
“I believe as the pope believes,” she said. “The pope said God doesn’t judge, so I don’t judge.”
