Mail Call: Pope is wrong
The pope says the Roman Catholic faith is the true way to worship God. I have never read in the Bible about God calling people to take God's place on earth as at least three popes have claimed.
Pope Innocent III said the pope judges all and is judged by no one. Pope Boniface VIII said it is necessary for every human creature to be subject to the Roman pontiff to find salvation. Pope Leo VIII said we hold upon this earth the place of God almighty.
The Bible reads in Hebrews 1:10 we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once and for all. Verse 11 reads every priest standeth daily ministering and offering the same sacrifices that can never take away sin. Romans 3:10 reads all have sinned and come short of the glory of God, but the pope claims to be infallible.
Romans 3:23 reads for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. Romans 6:23 reads the wage of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our lord. I am glad the salvation is so easy to understand.
Romans 10:9 reads if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead thou shalt be saved if you want more read John 5:20 through 5:29.
Romans 14:8 reads for whether we live, we live unto the lord and whether we die, we die unto the Lord. Whether we live therefore or die we are the Lord's verse. Verse 11 reads as I live saith the Lord every knee shall bow to me and every tongue shall confess to God. Verse 12 reads so then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.
In John 14:6 Jesus said I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the father but by me.
I am glad the Christians of other churches, who have accepted Jesus as our savior, will stand before God to give an account of their lives in the same way as you and me. When you hear statements made by anyone who claims to be God's spokesman, get your Bible and see if it is true or false.
John 5:39 reads search the Scriptures for in them ye think ye have eternal life and they are those which testify of me. John 8:12 reads Jesus said I am the light of the world, and he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.
