Bob Thiel: How Dare The Pope Share The Wealth With The Poor!

Bob Thiel is all hot and bothered today about the new Pope and how he wants to share the church's wealth with the poor.

Bob immediately jumps to numerous stupid speculations that he deems prophetic.  Since Bob considers himself the worlds foremost authority on prophecy and the Catholic Church he thinks his speculation is 99.99% accurate.

Bob writes:

While other pontiffs have called for changes in the financial system, Pope Francis has taken steps that suggest that he wants to change not only the financial system of the Vatican but also that of the world in ways he predecessors perhaps did not.

This week, the Pope may additional comments similar to some he made previously:
Pope Francis said in a homily delivered at his Vatican home that the Catholic Church shouldn’t go after wealth but rather pursue a “heart of poverty.”
A wealthy church is a dead church, he said.
“If you want to have a rich Church, then the Church ages, it has no life,” he said, as United Press International reported.
The pope has been focusing on the poor since his March selection.

Can't you just hear Bob right now:

"I mean, HOW DARE the Pope want to share money with the poor!  Doesn't the dude know that God will take care of the poor later!!!!!!!  They are poor because of sin in their lives and if you help them you are enabling them to not get off their butts and work for money.  How Dare he!  That money is God's money and needs to go towards the end time work of Dave Pack's MY church."
Bob continues with the antichrist bullshit:
 Notice one passage that the Antichrist is associated with:
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. (Revelation 13:16-17)
The “He” above is the two-horned beast (Revelation 13:11), also known as the False Prophet (Revelation 16:13), and Antichrist (1 John 4:1-3).

Considering how rich the Catholic church is they could sell all kinds of stuff and still be wealthy.  But they had better not give any to the poor!  Bob says if they do they they are are the antichrist.

Yes, it's always shocking to Armstrongites when non-ACOG Christians want to follow Jesus' example rather than that of HWA. Reflexively, they have to find a link between such Christlike behavior and the wrong side of the Armstrong prophecies.

A lot of former tithe slaves have raised the possibility over the years of a class action lawsuit to recover their tithes from the assets of the former WCG. Imagine the weeping and universal gnashing of teeth if the assets had been sold off and donated to the poor! The founders of the ACOG splitter groups would probably have screamed and cried the loudest!

I'm a Catholic convert and I feel sad for Bob. Let's always pray for him and for each other.

While most Christians would covet the prayers of fellow Christians, Bob Thiel would not consider your prayers valid. The fact that you are a Catholic convert is the reason he would not. Thiel's worldview is too shallow and to wrapped up in dispensationalism to even consider prayers of others outside his own little splinter group. All the best on your journey!

No2HWA, though I understand his mindset and hatred, he's still family in God's Book even if he's our delusional brother in Christ. Like a sibling or family member that goes his or own own path, sometimes to our own disagreement, let's equally pray that God will lead him to renewal, and to give us strength to love our enemies. Prayer is powerful - let's never underestimate it! God bless!

I saw this video of him talking and a door opens behind him on its own. Assuming it's demonic activity, I can only guess demons are influencing him, and only prayer can remove them. So prayer is needed even greater! Have a good weekend.
