    Tim-Amen! We need to be on the same page/ know what the Bible says cause
    bad mouthin religion backfired/church got so focused on abortion/homosexuals
    it forgot that getting drunk,premarital sex,gossip,gambling,sharp tongues and
    bein mean,coveting/greed.jealousy are all sin! 1 Corinthians 5,6 and 7 needs
    to be taught along with Romans 1:18-32 also in Luke 13 and Matthew 7:13-23.
    Bible says Repent and believe the Gospel to be saved! We all must Repent!

    All Christians in the world should unite under the major teaching of Jesus from the gospel, or God’s kingdom and/or heavenly government (Dan. 2:44), the only hope for blessed life on earth (Isaiah 11:1-9) and the end of all problems we now face (Rev. 21:3,4).

    The Pope is right when he says all people should unite under the Gospel to include all believers in Messiah-Christ. He also needs to apologize to the indigenous peoples for the wrongs done to them in the name of religion. The Church must return to the Church of the poor as it was in the early days of Christianity.
