Benedict XVI vs. Francis?
Don’t Fall for the False Opposition!
We live in times of great deceit. Deception and lies have always been the way of the evil one, beginning with the serpent in the Garden of Eden (see Gen 3:1-5): “…for he is a liar, and the father thereof” (Jn 8:44). It goes without saying, then, that deception and lies will also be part of the devil’s final act.
In St. Matthew’s Gospel, Our Lord tells us that before He returns, the deception — what St. Paul calls the “operation of error” (2 Thess 2:10) — will be so great that even the elect would be deceived if this were possible: “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect” (Mt 24:24).
