Speaking to Catholic broadcaster TV2000, the Pontiff said: “I’m convinced that one must never reject Satan – if you do that, you’ll be lost. “He’s more intelligent than us, and he’ll turn you upside down, he’ll make your head spin. “He is always polite – he does it with priests, with bishops. “That’s how he enters your mind. “He is very charming. “But it ends badly if you don’t embrace what is happening. “He’s not like mist. He’s not a diffuse thing, he is a person.”
The pontiff regularly references the Devil in his sermons and to his 40 million followers on Twitter. And last week, the Pope called for a change in the wording of the Lord’s prayer because it suggested God “induces temptation” rather than Satan. Pope Francis uses a variety of terms to refer to Satan, including the Evil One, the Seducer, Beelzebub and the Great Dragon. In a recent statement, he also reminded his followers that Lucifer was the son of God and that Satan had been “misunderstood.”
He urged his loyal flock to “give Satan a chance” after announcing that the Lord’s Prayer will be changed to include the devil. These shocking comments followed his statement from earlier this year when he warned the public that “relationships with Jesus are very dangerous.”
This series of Satanic statements has left many Christians questioning Pope Francis’s legitimacy as the leader of the Catholic faith. He clearly has an agenda that doesn’t seem to stem from traditional Christian teachings.
