The Pontiff Said…

It is remarkable to me that some continue to express uncertainty about truth. Note the following:
The Pontiff recently concluded his three-country tour of Africa, visiting the Central African Republic, Uganda, and Kenya.
The Christian Post reports that during an in-flight press conference on his return trip to Rome, Francis stated,“We Catholics have some–and not some, many–who believe they possess the absolute truth and go ahead dirtying the other with calumny, with disorientation, and doing evil. They do evil. I say this because it is my Church.”
He added that “ideas and false certainties” can replace faith, love, and God.
Was Jesus correct when He said one could KNOW the truth, and with this knowledge be set free from sin (John 8:31-32)? Of course He was correct! If that is so, then the “pontiff” was surely not correct in this sentiment.
Maybe Catholics are a bit uncertain about truth – and this would stand to reason considering their oral tradition takes such precedence like it does. Oral tradition in biblical matters, however, have no room for growth.
Whatever is to be said about the Catholic Church’s man-made leader, to the Christian, he is not to be listened to.
