Pope Francis Calls Rosary Beads “Spiritual Medicine”

Vatican Radio reported that Pope Francis dispensed “spiritual medicine” to the “pilgrims” who were gathered at St. Peter’s Square. What kind of “spiritual medicine” did the Pope prescribe to those people? The “spiritual medicine” which was prescribed was nothing more than a set of rosary beads and an “image” of Jesus.

This was not the first time that the Pope has done this, and it was time for “another dose” according to the report. In the USA a medicine must be approved by the FDA before it can be dispensed and sold to the public, but “spiritual medicine” is held to an even higher standard than that.

I can assure you that the “spiritual medicine” which was prescribed by the Pope, is nothing more than a man-made religious prescription, that has never been approved by God. I know because I used to take that very same “spiritual medicine” and it left me “spiritually dead” and almost landed me in Hell! I am a former Roman Catholic who faithfully prayed my “Hail Mary” prayers as I counted off each decade (10 Hail Mary’s) on my rosary beads, with the occasional “Our Father” and “Glory-Be” prayers also, but it was never approved by God.

This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”  Matthew 15:8-9

The Pope and company also included an “image” of Jesus in the little matchbox-like container as part of the medicine. Did you know that nobody truly knows what Jesus looked like? How can anyone possibly come up with an image of Jesus to hand out? It reminds me of a story I heard from the late Larry Thomas, who spoke about of a man who advertised an autographed picture of Jesus Christ over the radio. Now you would think that is ridiculous, but over 400 people paid 15 bucks for that picture! The truth of the matter is that God has given us the scriptures, and he told us that there is only ONE mediator and it is not Mary! 

“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;”  1 Timothy 2:5

Not only that but the Lord Jesus Christ warned us about people such as the Pope who would have the audacity to carry the name of “Holy Father” when the scriptures forbid it!

And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.”  Matthew 23:9

The REAL “spiritual medicine” which both the Pope and his followers need is the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ.

I received that “spiritual medicine” all the way back in 1989 and it pointed me to the person of Jesus Christ. That “spiritual medicine” pointed me to the saving power of Jesus Christ, as the scriptures showed me that I was “justified” by the blood of Jesus Christ! What freedom I experienced AFTER I received that “spiritual medicine” and I knew that it was time to leave the Roman Catholic system!

“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”  Romans 5:6-10

Every Roman Catholic including the Pope has the opportunity to received God’s perfect remedy, which is found in the true Gospel of Jesus Christ! When I received the “spiritual medicine” of the true Gospel, I knew that I did not need a Catholic Mass to satisfy the justice of God, because Jesus Christ took care of that 2000 years ago! Peter knew that Mary was not even part of the “spiritual medicine” either when he spoke about the ONLY way of salvation in Jesus Christ!

“Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”  Acts 4:10-12

Right now there are many Protestant Christians in Chiapas, Mexico who were tossed into jail, after they had ALL of their possessions and land confiscated. What was their crime? They simply refused to convert to Roman Catholicism! Those people including Fidel Hernandez, tasted of the good “spiritual medicine” of the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ, and the Roman Catholic authorities were not happy with that at all. Pope Francis did nothing on their behalf on his trip to Mexico, when he was riding around in his Pope-Mobile in the very same city of Chiapas!
