http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070710/ap_on_re_eu/pope_other_christians_1Surprise! Pope says other Christian demoninations are not true churches.
Pope is no different than us in Gods eyes so it's just his opinion, just like we have our opinions if you don't agree with him, just let his opinion roll off your back like water on a ducks back, this is how I was personally taught by my Dad to deal others opinions if I don't agree, and it's always worked great for me. :-)
Not wanting to start a 10 page thread, the reason I posted this is because his "opinion" affects the salvation of millions of people.Also the image of the Catholic church affects the opinion of a good part of the world about Christianity, such as the arguments that Christianity allows for the molesting of boys without real punishment, that if you confess your sins to a priest you're forgiven, etc.
Does this not strike anyone else as Satan over-playing his hand with regards to the Catholic church?For me this could bring many to see the true nature of Catholicism, something the Church seems to shy away from, because we don't want to offend. Whilst the Pope's statement could lead many to be futher tied up in Catholicism, it could also see Catholicism exposed and many come out of it?
dear saintsGreetings in Jesus' Name by Whose Blood we are Saved. AMEN.Catholicism and Christianity are to different things, the former being a product of hell. The irony is that the pope (whose office is indeed the epitome of the spirit of what is antichrist) says that only Catholics are Christians...as Christians we ought to be bold enough to say there is no Salvation apart from Christ. We are the bearers of the True Faith!How sad it is when the false faiths have more boldness than we, and are more willing to sacrifice all than we as in the case of Islam...May God stir us to Jealousy for Him.Grace and Peace be ours in Jesus' NAme. AMEN.
