The Article “Pope Francis Leads the Apostasy – Says the
Bible and the Koran are the Same” has been removed from our site and now points here. The information in this article and Rev. Michael’s points here are valid. While we regret our error because of false information we used – the sentiment of that article remains to be true – please read and consider Rev. Michael’s statement directly below.

Regarding the article entitled “Pope Francis Leads the Apostasy – Says the
Bible and the Koran are the Same,” we have been informed that Ms.
Bernard’s original source was a satirical site that cannot be trusted for
In our search to verify the truth of the Pope’s declaration about the
Bible and the Koran we were surprised to see that a direct quote cannot be
found. We were equally surprised to see what the Pope has said and it is
there we can safely say that the Pope’s recent allusions to other
religions and his behaviors still put him in the number one spot for
leading the church’s last day’s apostasy
Any connection to Islam and its Qu’ran is clearly part of an apostasy and
idolatry. The scripture passages used in the article remain true and the
result of following this very confused religion will produce the same –
While a quote has not been found it is the other behaviors of the Pope
that will lead some to think that everything in the Christian faith
including the Bible is on the same par with Islam and the Koran.
Since Islam is the perfect antithesis to Christianity the warning stands,
even while the original source was incorrect.
The recent visit to the Blue Mosque in turkey to pray, the kissing of the
Koran, the announcement that Islam is opposed to all violence and allowing
Muslim prayers in the Vatican are all signs of apostasy, but much worse
they are the kinds of signs that many Catholics will perceive as a
greenlight to fully accept the Islamic faith on an equal par with
Christianity and the Bible.
Rev Michael Bresciani
The one world religion nonsense of the liberals across the globe just got a boost from Pope Francis. At the same time the truth and the plenary verbal inspiration of the scriptures has taken a serious hit, at least among the 1.2 billion Roman Catholics of the world.
Most of mainstream biblically based Christianity is still reeling from the Pope’s recent entrance into the uber-green panicky nonsense about global warming posing a threat to the very future existence of the human race.
Scriptures say basic message of the Koran is false and is an “other gospel”
We have a Pope who seems totally ignorant of the one quarter of the bible that lays out the future of man in clear and precise prophecies which are pre-written history, not suspect science, speculation or religious tripe.
A lot of time is spent on labeling non-Catholics as independents, but it takes little wisdom to recognize the semantic twisting of such an effort. It would be both accurate and far more honest to say that both Catholics and bible believing Christians are completely – ‘dependent.’ Catholics depend of the Pope for authority and biblically based Christians depend on the scriptures alone.
This simple truth is the reason why we cannot follow the Pope down the apostasy trail to the kind of error that will cost the lives of many people when the axe of the world’s last dictator (antichrist) begins to fall.
Here are some of the scriptures that we depend on rather than the Pope’s encyclicals or Pontifical statements. These passages are strict warnings against the attempt to lump together the writings of ancient or modern pagan and idolatrous religions of the world – much more, they are a strict warning not to follow the falsehoods the Pope is putting forth.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” (Jn 14: 6)
“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” (Ga 1: 8)
“Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Ac 4: 10-12)
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.” (Jn 3: 36)
Does the Pope serve a schizophrenic God?
Islam and Christianity are so completely incompatible that the only way the Pope could get any traction on his new assertions is to have God pronounced as a feather brained, double minded delusionary, suffering from dementia praecox.
When a Christian shares the gospel message with an unbeliever they are invited to come to repentance of sin and new life, but they are never forced or coerced against their will. They alone must open the door. To wit:
“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” (Rev 3: 20)
When Muslims share, they are given leave to kill those who will not accept or believe in their religion. To wit:
“Fight and kill the disbelievers wherever you find them, take them captive, harass them, lie in wait and ambush them using every stratagem of war.” (Qur’an 9: 5)
A comparison of these two verses alone leave us in amazement and raise yet another question – has the Pope ever read the Scriptures or the Koran – at all?
God’s house is not divided – so exactly who has dementia praecox?
If, as the Pope says, Allah and Christ are the same entity, then why did Jesus say – “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and a house divided against a house falleth?” (Lk 11: 17)
The Pope’s “same entity” is calling for the death of unbelievers in one part of the world, which as we see from day to day, includes Christians, but across the pond he is calling for loving our enemies and showing them kindness and forgiveness.
The best wisdom of God and man arrives at the same place, either God is schizophrenic or the Pope has gone astray. This answers, yet once again, the question of why bible believing Christians will only adhere to the words of scriptures. We do not hate or disdain the Pope, but in the end, it will not be his words that will scrutinize our lives. To wit:
“I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.” (Jn 12: 46-48)
Our God is not flighty, and never opposes himself. As for the Pope, it can be seen that this is not the case. Advising his 1.2 billion followers to put the Koran on the same level as the bible may be the most incongruous and completely ridiculous thing any Pope has said in all of history. Christians and unbelievers alike should be warned that this contradiction must never be taken seriously.
“…what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” (2 Co 6: 14-16)
