The Vatican has often sidestepped the fact, or hidden the fact, that they are all about works-based salvation that isn’t really genuine salvation. However, Pope Francis has openly proclaimed what the RCC teaches in secret, i.e. that they believe salvation can only come by joining their “Church” by baptism in their “Church” through learning the catechisms of their “Church.”
This was the gist of a sermon he gave on June 25, 2014. In spite of this blatant anti-Christ teaching which denies Jesus’ sacrifice was all-sufficient for our salvation by God’s grace, you will be hard-pressed to find many, if any, popular evangelicals or mainline Protestant leaders on TV, radio, or the Internet who denounce this religious system for the sham that it is. Instead they continue to repeat the lie that Catholicism is just another branch of Christianity. Yet, this Pope is not hesitant to tell non-Catholics just how he feels about their theology.
In my opinion, those in Christendom who defend the Roman Catholic system of Baal do so because they are in partnership with them and/or lack genuine spiritual discernment. Little-by-little they are helping today’s churches, from small ones to megachurches, embrace the Whore of Babylon to eventually assimilate them into the coming one world religion.

Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace... Romans 11:5-6
