“As it stands, Bergoglio was never the pope, because Pope Benedict never resigned the papal munus, nor has he ever indicated that he has ever intended to resign it, because he considers the munus to be the grace and vocation of the Papal Office, to which he gave his irrevocable “yes”, never to be taken back.” (cf. Final Address, Feb. 29, 2013).

A Father of Lies cannot be the pope

Dec5by The Editor

A Father of lies cannot be pope, because, since Christ prayed for Peter that his faith not fail, a man who is pope could not give himself up to perpetual lying about matters of faith and morals and everything else. Therefore, either one must call Christ a liar, in His claim to be God and the beloved Son of God, or one must hold that Bergoglio is not the pope. There is no middle ground.

The safer ground is to hold that Christ told the truth, and that the Cardinals, who hold Benedict’s resignation to be valid, are in error. As a rule of practical conscience, one must chose always that which is not evil, even if your peers consider it is politically incorrect. You may not particularly care if Christ is God, but on the chance that He is, you better not call Him a liar. Likewise, no one ever taught that the Cardinals are infallible on anything, so why believe their novel claim?

Unfortunately, after Feb. 11, 2013, a legion of false apostles sprouted up, or might I say, a legion of devils took possession of a lot of men’s minds and hearts.

There are a lot of false voices out there. Unlike Mr. Walker, in the video above, they want to gaslight you into not believing in what you see and hear on a daily basis, and they want you to idolize the Cardinals in their judgement of a canonical act, wherein the Cardinals have no more authority to judge than you or I do, and then they want you to draw the conclusion that Bergoglio is not the worst pope ever by comparing him with some evil man of he past (such as Dr. De Mattei recently attempted), so that you remain in communion with a public idolater, blasphemer, heretic and apostate. Because, as Mr. Walker says of these false apostles, to them “Nothing is more important than being in communion. …. Sounds like Hell, doesn’t it!”

I say, there is nothing more ignoble in a man, than that he be a boot-licker. Because such men to not worship God or Christ, they worship their career or their visible superior. And that is a sin of idolatry, even when your superior is or seems to you to be the pope.

As it stands, Bergoglio was never the pope, because Pope Benedict never resigned the papal munus, nor has he ever indicated that he has ever intended to resign it, because he considers the munus to be the grace and vocation of the Papal Office, to which he gave his irrevocable “yes”, never to be taken back (cf. Final Address, Feb. 29, 2013).

    Opinions mean little to nothing in this confusing time. Only Our Lord can sort this. It is a time to “Pray, Hope and don’t worry”.
    “…for false Christs and false prophets will arise and produce signs and portents to deceive the elect, if that were possible. ·You therefore must be on your guard. I have forewarned you of everything.”

  2. Mary Parks says:

    The author misinterprets Christ’s words to Peter. Peter did fail, twice, but he “turned again “. He did not fail definitively.The pope can teach heresy, but not solemnly or definitively.

  3. Mary Parks says:

    You can’t say “I do, next Tuesday.” Renouncing the minus, like marriage, is accomplished ipso verbo. Another reason the resignation is invalid.

  4. Here is an excerpt from the laudation that Pope-Emeritus delivered* in honor of Jorge the Apostate:
    “Eucharistomen” speaks of a human thanks, thanks to all. Thanks above all to you, Holy Father! Your goodness, from the first moment of your election, in each moment of my life here, moves me, it really carries me interiorly. More than in** the Vatican Gardens, with their beauty, your goodness as the place where I live: I feel protected. Thank you, too, for the word of appreciation, for everything. And we hope that you will carry us all forward on this way of Divine Mercy, showing the way of Jesus, toward Jesus, towards God.”

    **Allusive reference to being six feet under the lawn in the Vatican Gardens, I suppose.

    “Bergoglio was never the pope”

    That is the truth, and Barnhardt reminds us today of yet more evidence of this: Benedict’s own personal secretary, Ganswein himself, explicitly stated that Benedict “remained in the office” (27 May 2016).

  6. William Howe says:

    I do believe the date was February 28 as there was no leap year in 2013.
    The resignation of Pope Benedict XVI occurred on 28 February 2013 at 20:00 CET, after having been announced on the morning of 11 February 2013 directly by himself.

  7. If PB does indeed hold the papal munus why does he fall silent while gross atrocities are being committed on Vatican premises & in CC churches throughout the world? He must know there cannot be a bifurcation of the PO which is, in itself, a grave scandal to Christendom. If PF is an imposter (which I believe he is) he must be denounced before PBXVI dies, otherwise a PF appointee will automatically be elected to succeed him. There must be someone in authority who can verify this situation & also say whether by his words & actions PF has removed himself from the papacy & the OHC&A Church.
