Responding to a list of questions published in the paper by Mr Scalfari, who is not a Roman Catholic, Francis wrote: "You ask me if the God of the Christians forgives those who don't believe and who don't seek the faith. I start by saying - and this is the fundamental thing - that God's mercy has no limits if you go to him with a sincere and contrite heart. The issue for those who do not believe in God is to obey their conscience.

Bill Calling for Non-Muslim Prayer on the Temple Mount Brings Prophetic Vision One Step Closer

“And many nations shall go, and they shall say, ‘Come, let us go up to the Lord’s mount and to the house of the God of Jacob, and let Him teach us of His ways, and we will go in His paths,’ for out of Zion shall the Torah come forth, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” (Micah 4:2)

The Third Holy Temple is at the core of the Jewish view of the End of Days. A new bill was recently proposed by member of Knesset Bezalal Smotrich that, if passed, would allow Jews and Christians to pray on the Temple Mount. This would bring Israel and the nations one step closer to the fulfillment of the prophet Micah’s vision that the non-Jewish nations of the world will ascend the Temple Mount and will learn from God how to go in His ways.

The truth behind ISIS leader's threats against Israel and Jews

ISIS is on the defensive, and even in a state of withdrawal. The group is losing territory in Iraq and Syria. According to US President Barack Obama, ISIS has withdrawn from some 40 percent of the vast, mostly desert territory it held. Its capital, the city of Raqqa in northeast Syria, has absorbed a severe series of bombings, especially at the hands of the French air force in the aftermath of the Paris terror attack. The entry of the Russian army into fighting in Syria has also bothered ISIS, but the majority of the Russian effort has been directed at more moderate rebel groups, such as Jaysh al-Islam, whose leader, Zahran Alloush, along with  his deputy and a spokesman, were killed by Russian missile fire over the weekend.

The Pope Says This Christmas Is A ‘Charade’ And That For Some People ‘It May Be Their Last’

Pope Francis sure does say a lot of strange things. I don’t think that any other Pope throughout history has ever called Christmas a “charade” or has suggested that for many people this Christmas “may be their last”. What in the world would cause Pope Francis to adopt such an ominous tone? Without a doubt, the leader of the largest religious organization in the entire world would be privy to information that would not be available to ordinary people like you and I. Could it be possible that he is aware of something that is coming that is going to dramatically change life on this planet? What we do know is that our world is becoming increasingly unstable. World War III threatens to erupt in the Middle East at any time, the number of terror attacks around the globe continues to increase, earthquake activity continues to rise, giant cracks are opening up in the ground all over the world, and we are rapidly plunging into a brand new global financial crisis. There is certainly a lot to be concerned about, but what would make the Pope so glum that he would actually call Christmas a “charade”?
