Does Pope Francis have a Spanish turn-of-phrase for a “know-it-all”? He is careful to notice tendencies here, and not offer a catch-all criticism. He speaks of “signs” and people who “may” be false prophets.
41. When somebody has an answer for every question, it is a sign that they are not on the right road. They may well be false prophets, who use religion for their own purposes, to promote their own psychological or intellectual theories. God infinitely transcends us; he is full of surprises. We are not the ones to determine when and how we will encounter him; the exact times and places of that encounter are not up to us. Someone who wants everything to be clear and sure presumes to control God’s transcendence.
Think God isn’t full of surprises? Read the Bible and biographies of saints to be convinced otherwise.
