IRAQ - Pope Francis Warns of Second ‘Great Flood’

Arno Froese

Pope Francis has warned that mankind is facing a second great flood caused by climate change unless leaders act to fix corruption and injustice.

The 84-year-old said that, in the story of the great flood in the Bible, God used his wrath to punish injustice and ‘clean up’ the world.

He then added that humanity is facing another ‘great deluge, perhaps due to a rise in temperature and the melting of glaciers.

‘[That is] what will happen now if we continue on the same path,’ he said.

While discussing justice, Francis brings up the example of the biblical flood which destroyed the world except for Noah—who was deemed virtuous enough to survive.

The flood itself may have been a myth, Francis says, but it is used as an example to show how God uses wrath to punish injustice and right wrongs in the world.

‘God’s wrath is against injustice, against Satan,’ he says.

Francis’s visit is designed to bolster Christian communities in the Middle East that were devastated under ISIS, and find themselves under attack even after the fall of its so-called caliphate.

Arno's Commentary

While the leader of the Catholic Church hierarchy is a measurable moral voice in the world, his religion is definitely in opposition to Holy Scripture. Isaiah 54:9 declares: “For this is as the waters of Noah unto me: for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with thee, nor rebuke thee.”

After Noah’s flood, God declares: “While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22).
