And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.
Luke 10:18"...the Pope is Jesuit, ....the recently elected superior of the Jesuits, Fr Arturo Marcelino Sosa Abascal, is getting rather more attention than many of his predecessors ever did.
In his latest interview, Fr Sosa claims that “We have formed symbolic figures such as the devil to express evil.”
It is hard to interpret his words in an orthodox manner: on the face of it, they seem to contradict the Catechism of the Catholic Church, as well as the Holy Scriptures where Jesus Himself talks of Satan as a fallen angel, rather than as a literary construct.
Fr Sosa has form with casting doubt on the credibility of Scripture. ...Fr Sosa has claimed that the Gospels may not record Jesus’ words: “There would have to be a lot of reflection on what Jesus really said. At that time, no one had a recorder to take down his words.” No, they didn’t, but that does not mean that the Scriptures are not an authentic source of the teaching of Christ.
...back in 1989 Fr Sosa signed a “manifesto” warmly praising Fidel Castro and welcoming him to Venezuela." CatholicHerald
