Antipope Francis falsely teaches that all are children of God

January 2, 2014

On Jan. 1 Francis urged people to accept each other’s differences and for enemies to recognize that they are brothers — a New Year’s Day service dedicated to world peace.  “We are all children of one heavenly father, we belong to the same human family and we share a common destiny,” Francis said, speaking from his studio window overlooking St. Peter’s Square, jammed with tens of thousands of faithful, tourists and Romans.  “This brings a responsibility for each to work so that the world becomes a community of brothers who respect each other, accept each other in one’s diversity, and take care of one another,” Francis said.



This is contrary to Catholic teaching.  Not all men are children of God.  Antipope Francis clearly doesn't have the first clue about Catholic teaching.  Two quotes suffice to prove the point.  More could be given.

Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum (# 16), June 29, 1896: “Let such as these take counsel with themselves, and realize that they can in no wise be counted among the children of God, unless they take Christ Jesus as their Brother, and at the same time the Church as their mother.”

Pope Leo XII, Ubi Primum (# 22), May 5, 1824: “In reference to these words St. Augustine says: ‘Whoever is without the Church will not be reckoned among the sons, and whoever does not want to have the Church as mother will not have God as father.’

While his assertion that all are children of God is not necessarily Antipope Francis' worst heresy, he does teach it repeatedly.  In doing so he creates the impression that God accepts all men and casts no one out from His blessings or salvation.  It implies universal salvation.
