Pope Francis Claims Satan is a REAL Person: ‘Don’t Argue with the Devil, He’ll Always Win Because He’s More Intelligent than Mortals’

The Pope has claimed the Devil is a real person who is more intelligent that mortals.

In a strong television interview, Pope Francis insisted Satan was not a fictitious character but rather a real being with dark powers.

The pontiff regularly refers to the Devil in his sermons in the Vatican and routinely praises exorcists for their work in combating evil.

‘I’m convinced that one must never converse with Satan – if you do that, you’ll be lost.

‘He’s more intelligent than us, and he’ll turn you upside down, he’ll make your head spin.’

‘He always pretends to be polite – he does it with priests, with bishops. That’s how he enters your mind.

‘But it ends badly if you don’t realise what is happening in time. We should tell him, “Go away”,’ according to the Telegraph.

It comes just days after the Argentinian Pope said he wants to change the interpretation of ‘Our Father’, the best known prayer in Christianity.

The pontiff said the Roman Catholic Church should adopt a better translation of the phrase ‘lead us not into temptation’ in the Italian version of the Lord’s Prayer.

He said the current phrasing, which is the same in English and many other languages, suggests that it is God who has a choice to lead us into temptation or not.

He said this was the work of Satan, not God.

‘That is not a good translation, because it speaks of a God who induces temptation’,’ the pope said in a television interview last Wednesday night.

Francis said the Catholic Church in France had opted for a different phrasing, which worked around this particular issue.

The French translation uses the phrase ‘do not let us fall into temptation’ as an alternative, which, the Pope said, implies that the fault would be human.

He indicated that it or something similar should be applied worldwide.

The prayer is part of Christian liturgical culture and memorised from childhood by hundreds of millions of people within all branches of the religion – both Catholic and Protestant.

It is a translation from the Latin vulgate, which was translated from ancient Greek, which was in turn translated from Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus.

Liturgical translations are usually done by local Churches in coordination with the Vatican.

    I thought I would have never said this… but…I agree with the Roman Catholic CEO.
    Yes, Satan is a real person. You just need to read the Scriptures. Both the Old and the New Testaments have references to this creature. God created Satan. He is a real entity with personhood. The name Satan is a generic name for The Adversary. In the New Testament, in the Gospels, Jesus speaks of Satan or the devil in no uncertain terms. Jesus speaks of the devil not as a story or as an illustration only but revealing us his personhood and character.
    On the prayer which the Catholics repeat as parrots, even though the verses previous to Jesus teaching the so-called “Lord’s Prayer” He specifically instructs His followers not to make vain repetitions in the hopes that God will listen because of you repeating your prayers over and over again, yet the Roman Catholic cult instructs its followers to do just that! We Christians do not have a “Lords Prayer” since we understand that praying to God is a privilege bestowed unto His followers as soon as we are born again, and now have access to the throne of grace of God the Father, and our prayers are sacred conversations with God in private and in public. So the Pope has a beef with a translation to a prayer that Catholics have to repeat and repeat to no end. That is false teaching. Jesus said that there will be some that will be led astray but woe to them. It would have been better for them not to be born since the punishment to them will be harsh! Poor Poop!

      The prayers were not to be recited without the heart involved in the sayings. It’s like when you’re trying to convince your sweetheart that you profess that love you’re conveying in the words you’re saying.
      So, it’s praying. We have to speak each word filled with sincerity, belief and expectation!

    I thought about becoming a Catholic but when they made this Argentinian man Pope i was reluctent. He only had to be in there a few months when i noticed he was not a person that should have become Pope and it made me wonder about the men that voted him into this position. I still think about them in the Vatican trying to decide who the next Pope should be and this is who they came up with. It was a sad day for all Christian’s when they said he would be the new Pope. What were they thinking ? If it was about changing the view of people to come back to the church they struck out. I still think about joining the Catholic Church but I am hesitant to since this is the new face of a Religion that I thought revered the Bible and it’s teaching’s. I can only hope that Pope Francis realises some time down the road that he is becoming that devil. Not the Devil but the one inside us that makes the wrong judgement call and speaks out before thinking.
