"At his weekly general audience June 25, Pope Francis continued his series of audience talks about the church, telling an estimated 33,000 people that there is no such thing as 'do-it-yourself' Christians or 'free agents' when it comes to faith ... Pope Francis described as 'dangerous' the temptation to believe that one can have a personal, direct, immediate relationship with Jesus Christ without communion with and the mediation of the church."
"These are dangerous and harmful temptations. These are, as the great Paul VI said, absurd dichotomies." (source)
Many people think that the Catholic Church has changed, and yet we can clearly see that she is still the same today, teaching a different gospel and a different Jesus. This man of sin 'appears' to be a good and humble man, but his teachings are of the devil. To say that we cannot have a personal, direct relationship with Jesus apart from the Roman Catholic Church is completely against the Word of God.
Revelation 3:20 ...'Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.'
Jesus Christ is waiting for a PERSONAL relationship with you.
