Don’t We Believe In God Any More?

I was disturbed by the network’s coverage of the pope’s visit to Washington. They talked more as if he were a political figure rather than the representative of Christ on earth. They sounded like he could personally change the church’s teachings on abortion, same-sex marriages and divorce just because they were unpopular positions.
There is no recognition that God is involved. The Pope can not abandon 2000 years of Catholic Doctrine just because it is unpopular. These teachings can not be changed by Pope Francis or any other pope. Scripture tells us that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. His teachings can not be changed. All of us including the Pope will have to account for our actions when we die. Then we will come face to face with the Creator of the Universe. I would be more worried about that than whether Americans found the Church Teachings to be popular.
Commentators mentioned that John Boehner was nervous about meeting the Pope. Think about meeting Christ instead. It should make any politician think twice about their political positions.
