From the "I thought you said He was not a Divine Being or Magician" file: How can God be Omnipotent and yet "not able to do everything" and "Not a divine being"???
"God is not a divine being or a magician, but the Creator who brought everything to life," the pope said. "Evolution in nature is not inconsistent with the notion of creation, because evolution requires the creation of beings that evolve."
"When we read about Creation In Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so," Francis said.The pope was addressing the plenary assembly of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, which gathered Monday at the Vatican to discuss "Evolving Concepts of Nature."Oct. 28, 2014
"God is not a divine being or a magician, but the Creator who brought everything to life,"
Gnostic theology 101. The gnostic god who created the cosmos is beyond the attainment of any creature. Fortunately for creation itself, however, this creator of the beyond did produce offspring (perhaps by a process of gnos-mosis!) These offspring, or demi-urges, are the objects of gnostic worshipers. Gnostic teachings say that demi-urges have the power to create and vivify matter (not unlike how Rebbe Akiva made a man out of mud, down by the river - a.k.a. the golem). Among these demi-urges is one good, and one evil. But the evil one overthrew the good and took his place. It is the destiny of the worshiper to help the exiled demi-urge (think Lucifer) regain his rightful place, and then become gods themselves.
Novus ordo infiltrators: be swift and tell your dupes what to think about this (gnosticism was approved for Catholics by Vatican II).
Trad-servative oafs: whip a list of signatories who will zealously affirm this apostate Catholic, gnostic-dimwit, lump of putrefaction as the one and only Pope of the Catholic Church, who must be in every way resisted and disobeyed (why not ban a few commenters and grub a few donations/subscriptions while you are at it!)
What Big-Bangist Antipope Francis actually said was 'Dio non è un demiurgo o un mago'. The correct translation would be 'God is not a demiurge or a magician.'ReplyDelete
That said, to suggest that Almighty God's powers are LESS than those of a demiurge, nay LESS even than those of a mere magician, is a most wicked blasphemy.
Of course God didn’t create the world, it was Mother Earth, remember? We all love Mother Earth who made us, says Bergoglio.ReplyDelete
