Jorge Bergoglio published a book in January on (what else?) God's mercy. Entitled The Name Of God Is Mercy, it is more of the over-the-top emphasis on a false idea of "forgiveness" without amending one's life as it should be. Written as a rambling interview with journalist Andrea Tornielli, I wonder if someday the word "interview" will become synonymous with "apostasy." It is painful to read (which is why this post comes almost a year after its release), and has major errors to lead the members of his sect even further away from the truth. I will outline just two pertinent errors that permeate the false pope's book.
According to the 1913 Catholic Encyclopedia: "Presumption is here considered as a vice opposed to the theological virtue of hope. It may also be regarded as a product of pride. It may be defined as the condition of a soul which, because of a badly regulated reliance on God's mercy and power, hopes for salvation without doing anything to deserve it, or for pardon of his sins without repenting of them." (Emphasis mine). Bergoglio's book engenders such presumption.
"Go and Sin No More"--after a while
The book starts from the principle that a human being converts progressively and that he has trouble living completely according to the Catholic morality. This contradicts the infallible teaching of Trent, "CANON XVIII.-If any one saith, that the commandments of God are, even for one that is justified and constituted in grace, impossible to keep; let him be anathema." Of course, no person goes from being a notorious sinner to a great saint overnight. Nevertheless, the book claims that because some see the Commandments (especially the Sixth and Ninth) to be "ideals" that are impossible to put into practice, the moral law applies to them in "degrees" according to how far they have "grown morally." This is rank heresy. This makes the Commandments subjective according to the whim (or bad conscience) of the individual as to "how much the law applies and he can follow."
Now you can see why Vatican II sect "communion" for adulterers can be permitted. They are not yet "fully moral" by giving up living in sin with their concubine. Yet, they are gradually going that way according to the dictates of their "conscience." Since they cannot fully live up to the Law of God, it is enough for them to try to do it partially, perhaps by having adulterous relations less frequently. This (allegedly) makes them "worthy to receive" their Novus Bogus communion cracker.
Do you see how the heretical Vatican II ecclesiology has invaded every aspect of Bergoglio's sect? Vatican II puts a false dichotomy between the "Church of Christ" and the Roman Catholic Church. The two are no longer one and the same. The Church of Christ is some mysterious entity which "subsists" in the Roman Catholic Church (and in other sects). This Church of Christ is present according to how many "elements" of it are present. To have all the elements (as The Roman Catholic Church) is best, but to have just some elements is good too and leads to salvation. Hence, Vatican II tells us of false sects that "... the Spirit of Christ has not refrained from using them as means of salvation which derive their efficacy from the very fullness of grace and truth entrusted to the Church." (See Unitatis Redintegratio, para. # 3).
Likewise, just as you can be "Catholic" partially or fully, so too you can be partially or fully moral. To be fully moral is best, but to be partially moral is good too, and you can receive "communion." This explains why in the Vatican II sect almost no one goes to Confession (which they call "Reconciliation"), but nearly everyone goes to "communion." Even though there's more evil prevalent than ever before, "sainthood" seems commonplace when they "come together as Church" to "celebrate Eucharist" as they like to intone (always devoid of definite articles!).
On pg. 33 of Bergoglio's book, there is a case described of a priest confronting a Vatican II sect member who is on his death bed. The penitent declares to the priest that he would commit the sin (of fornication) again if he had the opportunity. Despite this statement, the priest ends up absolving the penitent, because (get this) he's sorry that he isn't sorry!
Can a priest absolve someone from sin who is regretful that he has no contrition (or even attrition), and has no resolve to stop an act he knows to be wrong? It's outright absurd to think that regret for not having contrition is a substitute for contrition or attrition! What does Frankie have to say? "It’s a good example of the lengths to which God goes to enter the heart of man, to find that small opening that will permit him to grant grace." Therefore the fact of regret for not having sorrow for sin and a firm resolve not to sin again is a partial step in the right direction, and is sufficient to receive absolution. Now that's a sorry state of affairs!
Absent from his book is any mention of the temporal debt due to remitted sin, and blotted out through the use of indulgences. There's no mention of the need to avoid the near occasion of sin, and of God's particular judgement of the soul at the moment of death. All of this will lead readers towards the sin of presumption; a sure road to Hell.
More heresy from the papal pretender is spread throughout his book. Don't waste your eyesight or money on this trash. Read something edifying from the true saints prior to Vatican II (i.e. no "St." Wotyla, etc.). Bergoglio wants us to think that God's mercy is so great, He keeps everyone out of Hell, even those who are only "partially sorry." If true, wouldn't God's justice keep everyone out of Heaven, for no one deserves eternal bliss who has sinned? Remember the sobering words of St. Paul in Philippians 2: 12, "Wherefore, my dearly beloved, (as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but much more now in my absence,) with fear and trembling work out your salvation." Mr. Bergoglio's name is apostasy.
