New Pope looking to unite all the world’s religions
Pope Francis on Friday called for the Roman Catholic Church to “intensify” its dialogue with Islam, echoing hopes in the Muslim world for better ties with the Vatican during his reign.
“It is important to intensify dialogue among the various religions and I am thinking particularly of dialogue with Islam,” the new pontiff said in an address to foreign ambassadors at the Vatican.
Francis’s predecessor Benedict XVI was seen by some Muslim leaders as hostile to Islam and the change at the top had been welcomed by the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation and Al-Azhar, Sunni Islam’s highest seat of learning.
Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, head of the Saudi-based OIC, said earlier this month that he hoped “the relationship between Islam and Christianity will regain its cordiality and sincere friendship”. Mahmud Azab, adviser for inter-faith affairs to Al-Azhar imam Ahmed al-Tayyeb in Cairo, also told AFP earlier: “As soon as a new policy emerges, we will resume the dialogue with the Vatican”.
In his address on Friday, Francis also called for the Church to dialogue more with non-believers — returning to an effort begun during Benedict’s reign amid rising secularism in the Western world. “It is also important to intensify outreach to non-believers so that the differences which divide and hurt us may never prevail but rather the desire to build true links of friendship,” he said.
The Argentine pope said he wanted to “build bridges connecting all people” and said this was particularly significant for him personally because of his own Italian immigrant roots. source – Al Arabiya

[Editor’s Note: This does not necessarily entail the beliefs, thoughts, or theories of the local Act chapters or the National Act office…they are my beliefs, thoughts and/or theories. This is another piece of the end times puzzle of the last days in the Christian times. Jesus Christ (not Isa) will come back for his people, and the anti-Christ and his false prophet will be made known to the earth. W have a few more prophecies that are headed our way, like the Psalms 83 war, where North Western Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Egypt, and the Palestinians will attack Israel jointly (this will be happening within the next year and a half or so with my calculations of scripture and fulfillment of prophecies) where the Arab nations that attack will lose, not only the battle, but land also…the Edomites, or as their called today, Palestinians, will be annihilated, NW Saudi will lose oil fields and Damascus (the oldest city in the world) will become destroyed and be non-inhabitable. Then another prophecy will be the Ezekiel 38 war, where Russia, Germany, Iran, Libya, Turkey and Ethiopia will advance against Israel and lose as well. Sometime around the Ezekiel war (known as the Gog and Magog war) the Lord will come and take His people to be with Him (called the rapture) to be off the earth and away from what is going to happen to mankind during the tribulation. Shortly after the Ezekiel war. There will rise a world leader that will create a “peace treaty” with Israel (this treaty more than likely will come from a Muslim leader because of the wars against Israel would have been from Muslim countries, and Islamic prophecy, as well as Biblical prophecy that the peace-maker will be a Muslim from Iraq, the Muslims call him the Mahdi, and the Christians call him the anti-Christ), and with this leader, there will be a side kick or false prophet by his side. The false prophet will be in the religious head of the New World Order and will be the apostate Pope. This was given to us in a 1139 prophecy (called the prophecy of the Popes) from a Godly Catholic Archbishop of Armagh (Ireland) and when the prophecy was published in 1590, it was 100% accurate. It entailed that the last pope, the 112th pope from the prophecy, would become the anti-Christ’s false prophet.
The anti-Christ will be Muslim (coming from Iraq or, as also known as Babylon), and the world religion that is pushed on the world will be Chrislam. I say this because there is not a single religion right now that can be truly accepted by all people. Saint Augustine, the Archbishop of North Africa in the seventh century AD, was working with the Vatican to come up with a solution to rid the Jews (the ones that killed Jesus Christ), rid the “true Christians” (the ones that did not go for what the Roman Catholic Church [RCC] tried to teach, which was full of deception and anti-Biblical), and own Jerusalem (at the time, the holiest city of the world). The Vatican ended up actually making Islam (there are a number of practices both religious factions have), and when Islam decided they were not going to do what the Vatican wanted them to do, the Vatican created the Crusades. But overall, originally, the Catholics and the Muslims worked together…allowing each faction to go to their schools, interact with each other business wise, etc…so it is very easy to merge the RCC in with Islam.
I bring this all up now to show, the St Malachi prophecy of the Popes lists the current Pope as the false prophet, and that the current Pope is trying to merge the RCC with Islam (primarily) and everyone else (secondarily) which will help make a world religion that everyone can be a part of.]
