Pope calls for "World Political Authority"

On July 7, 2010 Pope Benedict XVI signed his new encyclical letter "Charity in Truth".

An encyclical is the highest form of papal writing and gives the clearest indication to the world's 1.1 billion Catholics as well as non-Catholics, of what the pope and the Vatican think about specific social and moral issues.

In his latest encyclical the pope called for a "World Political Authority" to manage the global economy and for more government regulation of national economies to pull the world out of the current crisis and avoid a repeat.

He said the current crisis was "clear proof" of what he branded as "pernicious effects of sin" in the economy.

A complete transcript of the encyclical is available on the Internet. Please ask yourself the following questions after you have had an opportunity to review it.

To all those that have been enlightened by the Word of God and to all those that have been delivered and set free from the spirit of this world (1 John 5:4), they will be able to answer every question with a simple 'Yes' or 'No' (2 Cor. 1:17-20) and they understand that the answer to all the above questions is a clear 'No'.

How God is able to give people understanding in all matters and how they are able to discern between darkness and light, is clearly explained through all the pages and articles of this website.
