The Pope Is The Vicar Of Hell
By David J. Stewart
Revelation 2:14, “But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.”

No pastor or Christian leader should ever speak highly of the Catholic Pope. I recently heard a Baptist pastor speak of Pope John Paul II as a “godly man.” No, the Pope is the vicar of Hell. The Pope is the representative of Satan! The Catholic Church is straight out of the pits of Hell.
God deliver us from pansy, compromised, money-hungry preachers who have turned aside after the error of Balaam. Just as Balaam misled God's people, so do pastors today harm their congregation when they fail to expose false prophets like the Pope. It is tragic that many pastors nowadays are catering to Catholics by censoring the truth, beating-around-the-bush, dipping-their-sails, and avoiding offending Catholics. Offend them for Jesus' sake! The Bible is the most offensive Book in existence, because it is the truth. If God was worried about offending people, then He would have written the Bible much differently, but He didn't. God said what He meant, and meant what He said.
That is one big reason that I expose Contemporary Christian Music [CCM], because the music and singers attract Catholics because they're all so vague and lacking any doctrinal position. What a bunch of sell-outs! I'd rather stand for something, then fall for anything! Man, what do you believe! Not one, and I mean not one, CCM artist preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ on their website. Third Day's song, Born Again is corrupt, wrongly defining being born-again as a mere “feeling”!
I once heard the statement... “The Pope is a dope and he has no hope.” I'd have to agree. The Pope perverts the Gospel, leading the masses into hellfire, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. I do not say this to be unkind, but to speak the truth and warn people. There are an estimated 1,000,000,000 Catholics in this world, and every one of them will burn in Hell when they die if they follow the teachings of the Catholic Church.
Let me share with you the official dogma (doctrine) of the Catholic Church, which was completed on December 8, 1965 by Pope Paul VI in a declaration titled VATICAN II.The following quote is taken from Vatican II...
"This holy Council first of all turns its attention to the Catholic faithful. Basing itself on scripture and tradition, it teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church. He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and baptism (cf. Mk. 16:16; John 3:5), and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it, or to remain in it."
SOURCE: Vatican Council II—The Conciliar and Post Conciliar Documents, published by the Roman Catholic Church and contains the Imprimatur: Walter P. Kellenberg, D.D., Bishop of Rockville Centre, Aug. 12, 1975. “Imprimatur" is the official Catholic stamp of approval and means “let it be printed.”
So according to Pope Paul VI, Jesus is the only way to Heaven, but the body of Jesus is the Catholic Church, and being water baptized is the door into which a person MUST enter the church. Vatican II states that a person CANNOT go to Heaven who doesn't get water baptized into the Catholic Church, and anyone who leaves the Catholic Church will not go to Heaven either. This is NOT what the Word of God teaches.
We are plainly told in Romans 10:3,4, "For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth." We are taught in Ephesians 2:8,9, "For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast." Salvation is of the Lord, not men. Eternal life is a free gift. Salvation is receiving, not giving.
Pope says Faith in Christ is NOT Necessary to Salvation!

Nonbelievers Too Can Be Saved, Says Pope
Refers to St. Augustine's Commentary on Psalm 136(137)
VATICAN CITY, NOV. 30, 2005 (Zenit.org).- Whoever seeks peace and the good of the community with a pure conscience, and keeps alive the desire for the transcendent, will be saved even if he lacks biblical faith, says Benedict XVI.
The Pope made this affirmation today at the general audience, commenting on a meditation written by St. Augustine (354-430).

That is blasphemy and damnable heresy! Acts 4:10-12 teaches that salvation is found ONLY in the precious name of Jesus. Romans 4:5-6 teaches that a person's faith is counted for righteousness; but the Pope says self-righteousness can substitute for faith in Christ. Notice that the Pope never quotes any Scriptures! Catholics just make things up as they go, concocting whatever traditions they want, and then teaching those traditions instead of the Bible. Mark 7:9, “And He said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.”

The Catholic Church is NOT the body of Christ. Water baptism is NOT a door into the Church. Vatican II is of the Devil. The Pope is a liar! Water baptism will just get you wet. There is only one Door and that is Jesus, "I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture" (John 10:9). When a lost sinner acknowledges their guilt of sin and comes to God the Father for salvation by way of faith in the blood sacrifice of His dear Son, that sinner is forgiven and born-again by God's grace. Vatican II is manmade Catholic tradition and a lie of Satan. Salvation is by faith alone in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
When Pope John Paul II died, President Bush, Pat Robertson and other apostates praised the Pope, expressing their admiration for the heretic, thus shaming the Savior and contradicting their profession of having Christian faith. No genuine born-again Christian, who loves the Lord Jesus Christ, would ever speak highly of the leader of the biggest false religious cult in the world. There is no doubt that the Pope and many Catholics are sincere, but the road to Hell is often paved with good intentions. The Pope's sincerity is totally irrelevant to the fact that he is corrupting God's plan of salvation and leading people into perdition. There is a curse from God upon the Catholic Church. The Pope is the vicar of Hell, which is where Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II are presently burning, and Pope Benedict XVI is headed. Only an apostate minister would refrain from exposing the Pope as being of Satan. Catholicism is a prisonhouse of religion.
Luke 11:44, “Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.”
Is the Pope the Vicar of Christ?
