Satan is a “real person armed with dark powers”

Speaking to Catholic broadcaster TV2000 in December 2017, Francis said that "Satan is not a metaphor or a nebulous concept but a real person armed with dark powers."

“He always pretends to be polite - he does it with priests, with bishops. That's how he enters your mind."

"The Devil is more intelligent than mere mortals and should never be argued with," Pope Francis has warned.

“He is evil, he’s not like mist. He’s not a diffuse thing, he is a person. I’m convinced that one must never converse with Satan - if you do that, you’ll be lost,” he told TV2000.

I included the video as evidence of his admission, though Pope Francis is speaking in his native tongue. Closed captioning leaves much to be desired, FYI.

The Jesuit contends with his own demons (as do his cardinal advisors), effectively shortening the distance between Church and Adversary. Aside from the inescapable irony, who do you believe Pope Francis is alluding to?

Metaphorically speaking:

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” - Sun Tsu

So, do you "know" thy enemy?

Pretty sure the PTB have the church right where they want them, ignorant.

This is the same Pope that is considering changes to The Lord's Prayer.

Maybe he has been talking to Satan.

Pretty much the only thing I can even partially agree on with this Pope.

And yeah, if anyone knows? It's him. He's going to have a LOT to answer for one of these days.

Sounds to me like he's referring to oneself being evil... you know, that evil voice in your head that tells you to do bad things, like cheat on your math test or torture animals.

This is the same Pope that just met with a Turkish president, Erdogan, and gave him an ordeal or medal of peace...

There's something not right about the guy

This has actually been the official church doctrine for thousands of years.

Is he referring to himself??

The catholic church has some done pretty dastardly things and he is their leader after all?

IMO anything that comes from those types,is almost always something to ignore,and to take it,and them,for what they are.
(the last people on earth I will look to for moral guidance)

He could easily be looking in the mirror and be speaking of himself with all his catholic church powers.

As for the video and what he is actually saying...I have no clue because I speak and understand English.

If George Soros is so powerful how come Republicans control every level of government from local to presidency?

The Koch bothers are way more powerful than Soros.

Pope Francis has this way of hitting the headlines whenever he repeats what the Catholic church has always said.
Perhaps the conspiracy here is that journalists are so fascinated by him that they look for these things. Next month, he recommends confessing sins to a priest.

Ironic isn't it. On a forum dedicated to "denying ignorance", we have threads like this that typically plumb the dreary depths of ignorance and presenting it as authority.
