Recent public opinion polls by Pew Research Center show the whole world adores Pope Francis. His relentless outreach campaign to other religions with his all-inclusive message that everyone goes to heaven, including atheists, is resonating with almost everyone. See my previous post: Pope Francis Claims Atheists Go to Heaven.
Public opinion ratings for Pope Francis were very favorable right from the start of his Papacy in March 2013, but a new survey conducted Feb 18-22, 2015 shows his favorable ratings have improved among every group measured.
The most amazing finding from the recent survey is the skyrocketing growth of his favorable ratings among the unchurched. Two years ago 39% of them rated his favorably. Now, just two years later, that number has almost doubled to 68%! It makes sense considering he is telling the world exactly what they have always wanted to hear, that they are all going to heaven regardless of what they believe.
- Among Catholics his favorable ratings increased from 84% to 90%.
- Among White Mainline Protestants his favorable ratings increased from 65% to 74%.
- Among White Evangelical Protestants his favorable ratings increased from 59% to 60%.
- As stated above, among the unchurched his favorable ratings increased from 39% to 68%.
Unfortunately for Pope Francis, his all-inclusive message directly contradicts the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus plainly stated most people are not going to make it to heaven.
Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it. (Matthew 7:13-14)
Unlike Pope Francis, Jesus was not trying to be popular. He was trying to help people find the way to eternal life. Pope Francis appears to have a very different agenda.
His strong favorability ratings lay the groundwork for his first Papal visit to the United States in September 2015. While he is here he plans to speak to the United Nations, to a joint session of the United States Congress, and to President Obama at the White House. His visit coincides with the end of the seventh Shemita year, the fourth and final blood moon, and the fall equinox. Many Christian believe there will be a global economic collapse at that time. As if all of that was not weird enough, now we have the Pope visiting at the same time.
