Perhaps my focus has been to narrow, but I had never seen the pope as a political figure....

Until now.

"President Obama increasingly is finding a key policy ally in the Vatican, with Pope Francis standing virtually shoulder to shoulder with the White House on income inequality and a historic diplomatic reboot with communist Cuba. The pontiff next year also appears poised to offer greater support to the president on climate change initiatives and reportedly wants to be a leading voice at a U.N.global warming summit next year, where the American president will make perhaps his greatest pitch to date for more dramatic action on the environment.

For Obama and fellow Democrats aligning with Francis offers clear benefits in the short term, as they are able to highlight agreement on controversial issues with one of the 'most respected figures on the planet.'  (Washington Times)

"...it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour. They went out from usbut they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us; but they went out that they might be made manifest, that none of them were of us. ....

     "Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the ChristHe is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son. Whoever denies the Son does not have the Father either; he who acknowledges the Son has the Father also." 1 John 2:18-23

Put on the Ephesians 6 armor.  2015 is shaping up to be a very interesting year.
