Did Jesus Become the Sinner for Us?

Pope Francis said in his homily on June 15, 2013:

… True reconciliation means that God in Christ took on our sins and He became the sinner for us. When we go to confession, for example, it isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us. No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say: ‘This is your sin, and I will sin again’. And Jesus likes that, because it was his mission: to become the sinner for us, to liberate us.

Read the above passage carefully. According to Pope Francis it was Jesus’ mission to become the sinner for us. What an absurd idea coming from the head of the Catholic Church!

Ask yourself this question: How could Jesus save us if He Himself were a sinner?

As Christians, we should always bear in mind the following:

  • Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Jesus.
  • Jesus is our Saviour; He died to free us from Satan’s bondage.
  • Only those who do the will of the Father will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.

Remember Matthew 7:15:

Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Jesus suffered a torturous death so that all sinners can return to God. But we first have to acknowledge Jesus—Who is without sin—as our Saviour.
