Pope Francis describes ‘ideological Christians’ as a ‘serious illness’ within the Church | The Raw Story

Pope Francis describes ‘ideological Christians’ as a ‘serious illness’ within the Church | The Raw Story | Gender, Religion, & Politics | Scoop.it
DrSophi's insight:

This pope is a dangerous person .... he opens the church's doors to people who emotionally and spiritually need the church but for whom the doors have been closed. He expands ideology to its more disciplined form .... love. Do not judge but love.  Love makes the church universal and not open to the merely knowledgeable. Because the knowledgeable do not have knowledge. Not really. We must have the hearts and souls of children. The church can no longer deny anything to someone who comes with an open heart. It is the church's purpose in the name of love to welcome and not to judge.
