Pope Quotes Reveal They Are The Son Of Perdition

Paul told us in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 that “the man of sin… the son of perdition… opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God.”

Instead of being an infidel who doesn’t believe in God, like so many pastors teach, the Antichrist does not reign outside of the Church, but in the very bosom of the Church.

The Temple of God is not an end times rebuilt Jewish temple; it is made up of followers of Jesus, Christians.

The Pope sits (assumes a position of authority) as God in the temple of God.
Read Antichrist In The Temple Deception

The following quotes from Popes will show you how they have opposed God, exalted themselves above God, and exalted themselves as the supreme being to be worshiped.

By their own words, they reveal that they are the Antichrist Son of Perdition
that Paul warned us about.

You may be thinking that Pope Francis I isn’t saying these things, so it doesn’t matter.

But Papal statements, known as Papal Bulls and ex cathedra statements, remain the stance of the Roman Catholic Church, until a Pope retracts it.

They are like a law in the U.S.  If a President enacts a law, it’s the rule of the land until another President gets the law overturned.

So if a previous Pope proclaimed it and the Roman Catholic Church hasn’t issued a retraction, then it is still their official stance.

They have not apologized for any of these statements, nor have they retracted them.

And you will see what Pope Francis I is saying that is drawing the world to him, to prepare the way for their False Messiah.

Paul warned that the Son of Perdition would reveal himself by claiming that he is God.

Popes have repeatedly claimed to be God. Friend, this can’t be any clearer.

Pope Pius V blasphemed,  “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in Heaven and earth.” (2)

Pope Innocent III said “We may according to the fullness of our power, dispose of the law and dispense above the law. Those whom the Pope of Rome doth separate, it is not a man that separates them but God. For the Pope holdeth place on earth, not simply of a man but of the true God.” (3)

Pope Leo XIII declared, “We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty.” (4)

The Popes claim the title of Vicar of Christ, which means “substitute Christ.”

The word antichrist doesn’t just mean “against Christ“, it means “in place of Christ.

Pope Boniface VIII said “We declare, assert, define and pronounce to be subject to the Roman Pontiff is to every creature altogether necessary for salvation… I have the authority of the King of Kings. I am all in all, and above all, so that God Himself and I, the Vicar of Christ, have but one consistory, and I am able to do almost all that God can do. What therefore, can you make of me but God?” (5)

Pope Pius IX said, “I alone… am the successor of the apostles, the vicar of Jesus Christ. I am the way, the truth, and the life” (6)

Pope Pius X declared, “The Pope is not simply the representative of Jesus Christ. On the contrary, he is Jesus Christ Himself, under the veil of the flesh. Does the Pope speak? It is Jesus Christ who is speaking, hence, when anyone speaks of the Pope, it is not necessary to examine but to obey.” (7)

Pope Pius XII said, “…recognize the Holy, Catholic, Roman Church to be the only true Church of Jesus Christ, outside of which neither sanctity nor salvation can be found. Call them to the unity of the one fold, granting them the grace to believe every truth of our holy faith and to submit themselves to the Supreme Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth.”  (8)

These blasphemous Papal proclamations oppose what Jesus told us in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”

Popes proclaim that Mary lived a sinless life and is the co-redeemer of salvation.

Pope John Paul II said, “The truth of the Assumption, defined by Pius XII, is reaffirmed by the Second Vatican Council, which thus expresses the Church’s faith: “Preserved free from all guilt of original sin, the Immaculate Virgin was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory upon the completion of her earthly sojourn. She was exalted by the Lord as Queen of the Universe…For the Mother of Christ is glorified as ‘Queen of the Universe‘.” (9)

The Church… been accustomed to have recourse to that most ready intercessor, her Mother Mary … For as St. Irenaeus says, she ‘has become the cause of salvation for the whole human race.‘” (10)

Pope Pius XI said, “What will it cost you, oh Mary, to hear our prayer? What will it cost you to save us? Has not Jesus placed in your hands all the treasures of His grace and mercy? You sit crowned Queen at the right hand of your son: your dominion reaches as far as the heavens and to you are subject the earth and all creatures dwelling thereon. Your dominion reaches even down into the abyss of hell, and you alone, oh Mary, save us from the hands of Satan.” (11)

Pope Benedict XV declared, “To such extent did Mary suffer and almost die with her suffering and dying Son; to such extent did she surrender her maternal rights over her Son for: man’s salvation . . that we may rightly say she redeemed the human race together with Christ.” (12)

God has committed to her the treasury of all good things, in order that everyone may know that through her are obtained every hope, every grace, and all salvation. For this is his will, that we obtain everything through Mary.” (Pope Pius IX: Encycl., Ubi primum, February 2, 1849.) — [p. 12, number 12]

O Virgin most holy, none abounds in the knowledge of God except through thee; none, O Mother of God, obtains salvation except through thee, none receives a gift from the throne of mercy except through thee.” (Pope Leo XIII: Encycl., Adiutricem populi, September 5, 1895.) — [p. 12, no. 13]

If it is impossible to separate what God has united, it is also certain that you cannot find Jesus except with Mary and through Mary.” (Pope Pius X: Allocution to the Franciscans, November 12, 1910.) — [p. 14, no. 20]

Every day, as the Church herself recommends, priests will recite the Holy Rosary, which, by proposing for our meditation the mysteries of the Redeemer, leads us to Jesus through Mary.” (Pope Pius XII: Exhortation, Menti nostri, September 23, 1950) — [p. 14, no. 23]

They proclaim that salvation is ONLY through the Roman Catholic Church.

Pope Francis I said “You cannot find Jesus outside the Church.” (13)

Pope Innocent III declares, “With our hearts we believe and with our lips we confess but one Church, not that of the heretics, but the Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church, outside which we believe that no one is saved.” (14)

Pope Boniface VIII said, “We declare, assert, define and pronounce to be subject to the Roman Pontiff is to every creature altogether necessary for salvation… I have the authority of the King of Kings. I am all in all, and above all, so that God Himself and I, the Vicar of Christ, have but one consistory, and I am able to do almost all that God can do. What therefore, can you make of me but God?” (15)

Pope Pius IX said, “It must be held by faith that outside the Apostolic Roman Church, no one can be saved;” (16)

Pope Clement VI said, “No man outside obedience to the Pope of Rome can ultimately be saved. All who have raised themselves against the faith of the Roman Church, and died in final impenitence have been damned, and gone down to Hell.” (17)

Pope Leo XII said, “We profess that there is no salvation outside the (Catholic) Church. …For the Church is the pillar and ground of the truth. With reference to those words Augustine says: `If any man be outside the Church he will be excluded from the number of sons, and will not have God for Father since he has not the Church for mother.’” (18)

Acts 4:12 confirms that salvation is only through Jesus. “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

Popes proclaim that Christians who are outside the Catholic Church aren’t saved.

They proclaimed that Christians who don’t bow to the Papal Church and are martyred for proclaiming Jesus, belong to Antichrist.

Pope Leo XIII said, “Remember and understand well that where Peter is, there is the Church; that those who refuse to associate in communion with the Chair of Peter belong to Antichrist, not to Christ. He who would separate himself from the Roman Pontiff has no further bond with Christ.” (19)

Pope Pius XII said, “O Mary Mother of Mercy and Refuge of Sinners! We beseech thee to look with pitying eyes on poor heretics and schismatics. Do thou, who art the Seat of Wisdom, enlighten the minds wretchedly enfolded in the darkness of ignorance and sin, that they may clearly recognize the Holy, Catholic, Roman Church to be the only true Church of Jesus Christ, outside of which neither sanctity nor salvation can be found.” (20)

Pope Pius XII said, “It is absolutely necessary that the Christian community be subject in all things to the Sovereign Pontiff if it wishes to be a part of the divinely-established society founded by our Redeemer.” (21)

Pope Eugene IV said, “No one, let his alms giving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Jesus Christ, can be saved unless they abide within the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church.”  (22)

Pope John XXIII said, “Into this fold of Jesus Christ no man may enter unless he be led by the Sovereign Pontiff and only if they be united to him can men be saved…” (23)

Popes have repeatedly declared that Bibles are forbidden and should be burned.

They forbid Bible reading, as it testifies to salvation by faith in Jesus Christ, not by works through the Papal Church. And it testifies that they are the Little Horn of Daniel, the Beast of Revelation, and the Pope, the Son of Perdition.

Pope Innocent III declared, “to be reproved are those who translate into French the Gospels, the letters of Paul, the psalter, etc. They are moved by a certain love of Scripture in order to explain them clandestinely and to preach them to one another. The mysteries of the faith are not to (be) explained rashly to anyone. Usually in fact, they cannot be understood by everyone but only by those who are qualified to understand them with informed intelligence. The depth of the divine Scriptures is such that not only the illiterate and uninitiated have difficulty understanding them, but also the educated and the gifted.” (24)

Pope Innocent III decreed, “We prohibit laymen possessing copies of the Old and New Testament. …We forbid them most severely to have the above books in the popular vernacular.” (meaning in their country’s native language, as the Papal Church only allowed their priests to read it in Latin). (25)

Pope Pius IV said, “The Bible is not for the people; whosoever will be saved must renounce it. It is a forbidden book. Bible societies are satanic contrivances.” (26)

Pope Leo XIII declared, “As it has been clearly shown by experience that, if the holy Bible in the vernacular is generally permitted without any distinction, more harm than utility is thereby caused.” (27)

God had the Bible written in Hebrew and Greek, not Latin.  God caused the Bible to be translated into French, German, English and other languages, so the Papal Church opposes the hand of God.

The reason they don’t forbid Bible reading now is that God used the advent of the printing press, and Bible societies to spread Bibles all over the world, so they can’t stop it.

Instead, they have infiltrated Bible publishers to create modern Bibles that remove words and change the meanings. Read Modern Bible Deception Verse Study

Popes proclaimed that all the world should submit to their authority or be killed.

Pope Innocent III  said, “Anyone who attempts to construe a personal view of God which conflicts with (Catholic) church dogma must be burned without pity.”  (28)

Pope Gregory IX said, “The lords of the districts shall carefully seek out the ‘heretics’ in dwellings, hovels, and forests, and even their underground retreats shall be entirely wiped out.” – (29)

Pope Leo XIII said, “But the supreme teacher in the Church is the Roman Pontiff. Union of minds, therefore, requires, together with a perfect accord in the one faith, complete submission and obedience of will to the Church and to the Roman Pontiff, as to God Himself.” (30)

Historians estimate that the Roman Catholic Church caused over 50 million “heretics,” mostly Christians, to be killed during the Dark Ages and Inquisition, because they did not submit to the Papal Church. Read Killing The Two Witnesses Of Revelation 11

But now instead of opening declaring all of the above Papal Proclamations, they work covertly to seize power over the whole world.

Pope Francis is drawing the world to him by declaring that all ways lead to the same God.

Pope John XXIII wanted the Catholic Church to engage in the contemporary ecumenical movement, and the “Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity” was created to draw Christian Churches to the Pope.

You’ve seen this play out as Billy Graham, Rick Warren, Rick Joyner and other “Christian” leaders have embraced the Pope.

Friend, as you’ve seen on this study page and the other Bible studies on this website, the Papal Church is the Whore of Babylon who is drunk with the blood of the saints.

No Christian Pastor should have anything to do with the Pope, and they should be declaring that the Papal Church is the Little Horn of Daniel, the Beast of Revelation and the Pope, the Son of Perdition.

After he was elected, the cover of Time Magazine declared Pope Francis to be the “New World Pope“, and since his election Pope Francis has made it abundantly clear that he is going to make ecumenical outreach a top priority.

Pope Francis is trying to draw Muslims to him, but focusing on God, the Father; and saying that Jesus is his teacher, as Muslims believe that Jesus was a good teacher, but don’t believe that He was God. The Bible says that Jesus is the Creator and the Light of the World, so the Pope’s words oppose the Bible.

Jesus is my teacher and my pastor, but God, the Father, Abba, is the light and the Creator. This is my Being.  Do you think we are very far apart?” (31)

Pope Francis implies that “Allah” and the God of the Bible are the same.

I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you.” (32)

Pope Francis is drawing Jews to him.

Pope Francis also wrote that the Catholic Church holds “the Jewish people in special regard because their covenant with God has never been revoked.” (33)

Pope Francis will visit Israel in May, 2014

Pope Francis is drawing the Orthodox Christian Church to him.

Before his inaugural address, the pope had a private meeting with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew from Istanbul, who attended his inaugural Mass.

It was the first time the spiritual head of Orthodox Christians had attended a Roman pope’s inaugural Mass since the Great Schism between the western and eastern Churches in 1054 A.D.

At Wednesday’s meeting, Francis called Bartholomew “my brother Andrew,” a reference to the apostle who was the brother of St. Peter and was the first bishop of the Church of Byzantium.

Francis also held a private session with Metropolitan Hilarion, the foreign minister of the Russian Orthodox Church, the largest in the Orthodox world.

In order to gather the world into the one religion of the New World Order (and away from salvation through Jesus), the Pope is drawing the major religions of Islam, Orthodox Christianity, Protestant Christian Churches, Judaism, and even atheists, to the Papal Church.

In the name of ‘peace‘ the False Messiah will offer one religion that reconciles the differences between the major religions.

And the enemy of ‘peace‘ and the world, will be Christians who will not bow down to the authority of the beast.

Below is what has been declared by Vatican Councils and in their Cathachism:

We define that the Holy Apostolic See and the Roman Pontiff hold primacy over the whole world.” (34)

All names which in the Scriptures are applied to Christ, by virtue of which it is established that he is over the church, all the same names are applied to the Pope.” (35)

No one may possess the books of the Old and New Testaments in the Romance language (such as French, Italian, Spanish, etc.), and if anyone possesses them he must turn them over to the local bishop within eight days after the promulgation of this decree, so that they may be burned.” (36)

The Pope takes the place of Jesus Christ on earth…by divine right the Pope has supreme and full power in faith, in morals over each and every pastor and his flock. He is the true vicar, the head of the entire church, the father and teacher of all Christians. He is the infallible ruler, the founder of dogmas, the author of and the judge of councils; the universal ruler of truth, the arbiter of the world, the supreme judge of heaven and earth, the judge of all, being judged by no one, God himself on earth.” (37)

We confess that the Pope has power of changing Scripture and of adding to it, and taking from it according to his will.” (38)

The Roman Catholic Church reveals that they worship Babylonian, Egyptian and Roman pagan gods, by the symbols and idols they use. Look at these Images of the Roman Catholic Church (new page).

The Popes of the Roman Catholic Church consistently sought to eliminate the Two Witnesses of the Word of God and the Church of Christ.

65 thoughts on “Pope Quotes Reveal They Are The Son Of Perdition”

  1. “The Temple of God is not an end times rebuilt Jewish temple; it is made up of followers of Jesus, Christians.

    The Pope sits (assumes a position of authority) as God in the temple of God.
    Read Antichrist In The Temple Deception.”

    Good article. I saw this several years back in 2 Thessalonians 2:4, “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”, where the word for temple was naos, ναός, which spoke of the inner room of the temple proper. Whenever the temple grounds, or temple proper were denoted the word ἱερόν, heiron, was used. But if the inner holy of holies was denoted, then naos was used. Now when Paul spoke of the Church he only used naos never heiron. So this sitting in the temple is as you have stated taking a seat of authority over the Church! By the way, this has already happened through the Club of Rome, International Law, Corporate law and the attorney generals of the 50 states. Pastor Mike

    • Thank you for sharing your insight Pastor Mike!

      Another prophecy that talks about the temple is in Revelation 11, where there is a command to measure the temple. It was about measuring what the Popes of Rome declared against Scripture. And what people like Martin Luther found out is that the papal church is an apostate church, a harlot church, and they were to be delegated to the court of the gentiles.

      So again, the temple is the body of Messiah, and the Roman Catholic Church is not part of that body.

      Here is the link to the study http://christianitybeliefs.org/revelation-timeline-decoded/measuring-the-temple-of-revelation-11/

    • Thank you Dumachi 🙂 I’ve tried to talk the best of what the great theologians of the 16th-20th centuries taught, and put it in logical, easy to understand studies. Futurism is a relatively new concept, as our forefathers of the father all knew that prophecy started to be fulfilled after John wrote the book of Revelation. Blessings to you, David

    • Actually Jim, the Sabbath cannot be on Saturday. First of all there was no such thing as Saturday during Messiah’s ministry, as the Roman calendar had 8 days per week, which were named after the first 8 letters of their alphabet. When they created the 7-day calendar later in the 1st century, Saturday was the first day of the week, not the last. It wasn’t until the 4th century that Saturday was made the last day. There is no way to track the Sabbath through all of that mess to proclaim that it is now Saturday.

      Besides that, do you really think that Satan would allow the Scriptural Sabbath to conveniently fall on the 7th day of the pagan Roman calendar?

      To prove that Saturday cannot be the weekly Sabbath, one simply has to read about Aviv 10, when the Passover Lamb was to be purchased; Aviv 14 which is a preparation day for the first day of Unleavened Bread, and Aviv 16, on which the barley could be harvested.

      All of those are commanded work days, so they cannot possibly fall on a Sabbath. But on the Roman Gregorian calendar they do fall on Saturday every few years, so it invalidates the premise.

      What Constantine did was forbid Jews and the Early Church from following the luni-solar calendar, which resets the calendar each month based on the 29 1/2 day lunar cycle, which caused the day that the Sabbath was observed on to change every month.

      Constantine forced them to observe a Solar-based calendar, which featured a repeating cycle of 7 days; or be subject to death.

      In 358 A.D., Sanhedrin patriarch Hillell II compromised with Rome when he provided a mathematically-based calendar that would harmonize with the Roman Sun-based calendar, while appearing to still be based on the luni-solar Biblical roots.

      In order to reduce persecution by Rome, the Jews exchanged Biblical lunar Sabbaths for the popularized Roman unbroken-cycle-of seven day weeks. This causes their Sabbaths to be out of sync with the New Moons, and with the holy appointed Feast Days.

      Since then, Jewish leaders have developed “Rules of Postponement” to make sure that while following the Roman calendar, that certain Holy Days are not adjacent to the Saturday Sabbath.

      But their “Rules of Postponement” are not Biblical, which confirms that the Rabbis are not using the Scriptural Calendar for the seventh day Sabbath!

      The bottom line… Satan is happy to let people believe that they know the truth, to believe that Saturday is the Sabbath day, as it’s just another deception to keep people in ignorance of the cycles of the true Scriptural calendar, which determine the Holy Feast Days and the Sabbaths.


  2. Its clear that the catholic church has been doing a inside job on Christianity for a long time. Islam and Catholicism are both the same at the top, they both worship Lucifer. A wise Ex-Catholic posted a Youtube video that goes into great detail about this its called: “The Islamic Connection: Catholics and Muslims are ran by the same power”

      • Agree. I believe the Jesuits are behind ISIS, The pope is currently setting up a One World Religion and they starting “WW3”. Today he tried reaching out to protestants to rejoin the fold, I hope they are wise to why they actually left in the first place.

  3. Hubmaier was a catholic priest who studied the scriptures in the original languages. And when Luther’s german bible was published a great revival took place. Hubmaier and a lot of others was burned because of their faith in Jesus Christ and The Word of God:


    European history reveals the TRUTH.

  4. None of this is true. It’s all man made up. It’s not backed by any truth. It’s only made to tell and spread more lies about the Catholic church for the purpose to mislead people from the truth. They have facts twisted and what they didn’t understand they just made something up that fit in their crooked minds. It’s sad when people who spread lies can’t even get the facts straight. I mean at least get your facts right from history. Catholics have given us the Bible and the Church. If you appreciate those two at all then all of this becomes just more bunk we have to deal with. You realize that those who rejected the Catholic church ended up being atheist. Protestants went to Ireland to convert and it’s been nothing but an battle with the Irish sticking to their roots of Catholicism. There are tons of examples throughout history that supports the Catholic faith, why can’t you read about it? The Irish are people who have given us just about the best example to stay Catholic. The English left Catholicism to basically become atheist. Thank goodness we have 2000 years of history to look back on. I’m so glad I’ve become Catholic there is no way I would even remotely return to an false church and lies. But please remove this website full of lies for the purpose to mislead. It’s negative, it’s false, it divides, it destroys, it misleads exactly like the devil himself who is the author of this. Give it up, you have been found out!

    • I’ve given the sources for the Popes quotes and the quotes from the Cardinals. Saying that they are not true, does not invalidate them. They are quotes from your leaders. You’ve proven nothing, just that you’ve been programmed by the Papal Church, to defend it. I will never cease to proclaim the truth. The Popes of Rome and the Jesuit Generals are the enemy of Messiah and his followers. They are not your enemy, because you are believing their lies. You will stand before Elohim, not the Popes, on the day of judgment. You better make sure that your beliefs line up with His Word, not the declarations of the Pope.

    • I thank the Lord my God for saving me through Jesus Christ from the sick twisted perversion that is Catholicism – a rightful candidate for the title of the mother of all harlots and abominations upon the earth.

    • This is comical. I would love to see your proof text of how Catholics gave us the bible and the church? Where is this found? As a theologian and scholar for over 35 years, I am amazed at claims you make that are totally false and unfounded. What is your exegetical proof? I admit, I can not wait to hear the answer coming from such profound stupidity and ignorance. Please elaborate and teach us.

    • I’m sorry but you are wrong. I can assure you that the above article is very factual. Popes have committed murder, extortion, and torture. The Catholic Church DID NOT give the world the Bible. The Old Testament was preserved by the Jews centuries before anyone ever hear the phrase “Catholic Church”. The New Testament scriptures began to be collected and preserved as early as the mid 2nd century. In fact, the Catholic Church is the institution that has tried to keep people from having printed copies of the Bible. Until the middle of the Reformation Movement, it was a crime against the Catholic Church to own or try to read the Bible. All of this is documented and verifiable through any number of primary documents. The very declaration that the Pope is “the vicar of Christ” is against every teaching of Jesus. The Catholic Church is a mixture of some Christian teachings but mostly paganism incorporated from ancient Roman religions. The Emperor Constantine is (falsely) regarded as the first Christian emperor. However, he also retained his title of as head of the [pagan] Roman religions. He demanded he be given an equivalent title over Christian churches. The was given the title “vicar.” He continued to mix paganism with Christianity during his reign. As the Western Roman empire began to fall, power-hungry church leaders saw an opportunity to step-in and occupy the same position. They used “religion” as a disguise for all manner of evil and corruption. You can agree with this or not…it makes no difference…historically this is the truth.

  5. I think you took it an little too far. First, you have to understand how an Catholic thinks and you have to know the context in which they speak. Yes, not all popes were correct. By saying that, you have to realize one, they put the Bible together for us, two, there is no scripture that the Catholics don’t fully understand. There are though many scriptures the Protestants don’t know what to do with them. For instance, Jesus said on earth as it is in Heaven, an Protestant doesn’t do anything with that scripture plus many others. The Catholics take every word in the Bible and do something with them. Many Protestants just skip over them. It’s easy to verify this. I’ve seen it time and again. But getting back the son of perdition will most likely be an Protestant who tries to copy the Catholic Church but gets it wrong with the pope. Of all the problems with early churches none of them were located in Italy. Peter went to Rome. Jesus says the gates of Hades would not prevail against it. Stand firm and hold to the traditions you have been taught by word or letter, etc. This does not mean you can go and start an new church, so Protestants beware. You have to go by every word and you have to believe it. You can’t divide Christ! And you can’t do whatever you want because it would be humanism. The power of the human to go start his own church. This is the lie. This is the son of perdition or of lawlessness. Do you think it was ok to remove 7 books from the Bible? Catholic have 73 books, Protestant 66 books. 66 mean incomplete. Protestant only have half of the truth.

    • Thank you for your comment Von Clendenen 🙂 If you think I took this study too far, read the home page which clearly shows how the Popes of Rome fulfill Bible prophecy as the Little Horn of Daniel, the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist beast of Revelation.

      Read the Witnesses Against The Antichrist Popes, as they witness against the Popes, before being burned to death.

      Read the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 study, when Martin Luther, a Catholic Monk, was given the task by God to compare what the Popes taught against the Holy Scriptures. And he found that the Catholic Church was an apostate church, the Harlot of Revelation 17. He found salvation by faith in Messiah’s atoning work alone, not by the sacraments of the Papal Church.

      Read how what the Popes teach is contrary to the Word of God on the Roman Catholic Beliefs website.

      Read this study which proves that Peter did not go to Rome to become the first Pope, but that it was Simon the Magician, the Sorceror who tried to buy the power of the Holy Spirit, but was rebuked. Then he took his gnostic religion to Rome to help found the apostate Roman Catholic Church. http://romancatholicbeliefs.org/was-the-apostle-peter-the-first-pope/

      Most Protestants are following a Roman cult called Christianity. In the 4th century the Bishops of Rome and Roman Emperor Constantine created the false religion of Christianity, featuring a Messiah named Jesus Christ, which is not the Messiah’s real name, as there was no letter “J” in Hebrew, and it wasn’t in the English language until the 17th century. They removed the followers of Messiah from the Father’s Holy Feast Days, and gave the pagan holidays of Easter and Christmas. Read that study @ http://christianitybeliefs.org/the-falling-away/

      Both Catholics and Protestants are very deceived. I am simply a follower of the Messiah who died for my sins and rose again.

      • I know you either misunderstand Catholics or are mislead by too many other opinions? Are you afraid of scripture or something? I think you are someone who maybe lacks wisdom, knowledge and understanding. I’d like to know if you ever pray for these things? The Son of Lawlessness, would be those accepting the lie and these begin as little white lies that do no harm initially but they continue to keep on believing the lies until they become lawless, henceforth, son of lawlessness. Protestants begin an church with no authority from Christ or His apostles and say it is God’s church(humanism), they say it is the first church 33AD(lie), they misinterpret scripture and take it out of context or they take only an fraction of it and bend it to mean whatever they want it to say(lie), heck they even removed 7 books from the Bible, what else are they going to do! The Catholic Bible has 73 books! If ever the Catholic church was built on an lie I think it simply would not or could not stand for the 2000 years. Unless you are like some who want to make the devil strong and successful and tie him with the Catholic church which I will never do. I give the Churches success to God and only Him. You should reconsider. The devil or evil will not stand because they are the ones divided against themselves just like the Protestants are. If your’e saying to me that Christ church failed then that would be the only reason to start up an new church, one problem, His church did not fail. So, good luck with that and it would become known the biggest example of Humanism you can find. But the only reason there are Protestant churches today is the fact that the Catholic church continues to stand strong today but the devil needs them to deceive as many people as he can so why wouldn’t he begin many and try to deceive them all through churches that divide, Protestant? Jesus doesn’t need Protestant churches are you kidding me? Jesus said the gates of Hades would not prevail against His and that has become true 2000 years after the fact in the Catholic church alone, you don’t need another church, do you believe Him and what He said? The Catholic church gave us the Bible and the Church, what has Protestants given us beside mass confusion, divisions, splits, and lawlessness including many more lies? There are only two decisions every person need to make, it really is that easy, am I Catholic or atheist because there is nothing else beyond that or you believe the lie. There can’t be anything else or if there is the purpose is to make Christ out to be an liar or something. You don’t want to do that and neither do I. You believe every scripture down to the word, or you don’t, which way is it for you? Please don’t pick half of them, it’s all or nothing, it gets tiresome for me to correct all these folks who only pick half of scripture and say they got it. The Harlot of Revelation was Jerusalem by the way. You should study with an Catholic and once you see it you’d never go back. The falling away or the great apostasy are Catholics who have falling out with the Church which would be the folks who started their own churches most likely beginning with Luther, etc. My ancestors, your ancestors, everybody’s ancestors, 800 years ago, if Christian would have been Catholic so if they are not today, those are the ones who continue to contribute to the great falling away. Yes, it’s still going on and it’s with people living today who are Protestant now or they reject the Catholic church. Wake up and study more you are not there yet. Do yourself an big huge favor and watch EWTN and LEARN what is going on. The reason our country has so much trouble today, yes, you guessed it, the fruit of Protestants. We are living in the fruits of Protestantism right now. We have never really been an united country because of Protestants. Why again do you believe them? If you believe the US has ever really been united, you haven’t seen nothing yet. That’s what we pray for. What do you pray for? I’m not sure what all you have been reading outside the Bible but what is the point? The Bible is not going to lie to you, true? There is no reason to doubt it, true? Nothing that you spoke of above is backed by the Bible, some of it is just an bunch of bunk that someone is telling you. I mean look at it at face value. Do you spend most of your time reading the Bible or what someone else is saying about the Bible or the Church that is negative? Go read it. It’s kinda weird but Protestants and those who reject Catholic are always most negative and you seem to be there too. If you can trust and obey an 2000 year old Bible, then surely you can trust and obey the 2000 year old Church as well. If not what is the problem? The key is don’t be an hypocrite and don’t give the devil credit where credit is not due him and stay away from those who practice Humanism like the Protestants do all the time. Take care and keep with it but please stop believing the lies. Pray that God will allow you to come to know and see the lies that the devil uses so that way you can spot them and steer clear of them. If you only pray for the truth which is good it doesn’t give you the wisdom you need to separate them like God shows us He will do by separating the goats from the sheep. Scripture also says before harvest you collect all the weeds from the field and burn them first, and then go back after the harvest that should be familiar to you and should mean something to you as well?

        • Thank you for your comment 🙂 Since these are quotes from Catholic Popes, they are what the Catholic Church proclaims. Read the home page of the website to see Biblical proof that the Popes of Rome are the Little Horn of Daniel, the Son of Perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist of Revelation. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/

          During the Dark Ages the Popes of Rome sought to eliminate the witnesses against it, the Scriptures and the saints. Popes only taught in Latin and forbid Bibles. The Protestant Churches were created when millions of Catholics came out of the Papal Church in the 16th century to be saved by faith alone.

          I’m not in a Protestant Church, so you’re barking up the wrong tree. Protestant Churches get many things wrong, such as prophecy fulfillment. The Falling Away happened in the 4th century with the Roman Bishops and Emperor Constantine created the Roman cult of Catholicm. http://christianitybeliefs.org/the-falling-away/

          Sadly Protestant Churches still cling to the false teachings of Rome, such as observing pagan holidays such as Easter and Christmas, instead of the Father’s seven Holy Feast Days, which Messiah is fulfilling to redeem His bride. http://christianitybeliefs.org/the-falling-away/the-biblical-holy-feast-days-were-hidden/

          Here is my website which shows that what the Popes of Rome teach is contrary to the Word of Elohim. http://romancatholicbeliefs.org/

          Your condemning judgmental attitude about whether I read the Bible is rendered void, if you would have bothered to read the studies on this website, which are Bible studies.

          Messiah told us to come out of Babylon. I came out when I left the Protestant Churches, which are daughters of the Roman Church.

          Friend, John used the word Babylon to point to Rome. I pray that you will study to show yourself approved, and come out of the Roman cult. Come out of her, the Harlot, the apostate Church, lest you partake in her judgments.

          Grace and peace and love to you in Yahusha/Jesus name,

  6. Who is Anti-Christ?…he who claims to be FREE to do what is RIGHT in the eyes of each man.
    …some say the “Pope”.

    People talk about the coming of a “New World Order” which would give equality to all religions / gods…which accepts all religions, which accepts homosexuality, which accepts capitalism….
    BUT THIS “WORLD ORDER” ALREADY EXISTS and is worshipped by all nations and by all religions..it is known as FREEDOM of Rights, FREEDOM of Religion.
    All people desire it and have willingly received its mark ( name = character / number=values) on their foreheads and hands.
    The religious worship it for their religious freedom.
    … the Catholics, the Christians ( & all its denominations), the Jews, all other religions, and yes, even the Muslims.
    The capitalists worship it for the greed freedom.
    The homosexuals worship it for the sexual freedom.

    President Obama has declared the message, as a spiritual messenger(=angel) from on high, that this FREEDOM is the “Light of the world” and the righteousness of man for his peace. He has confessed in Jerusalem that there is a “common” ‘god’ among the 3 main religions of Christianity, Judaism, and Islam whose identity and gift is FREEDOM. President Obama has placed the tabernacle of his FREEDOM palace between and above the Holy Mountain of the One Creator.

    AND this FREEDOM dictates that it is RIGHT, a right, to be free to worship ANY ‘god’ as per one’s self-desires and self-interests, established as per one’s definition of “good and evil’.

    BUT the One Creator commanded man to worship ONLY HIM. HE said that man is not to worship any other gods….in other words HE warned man that man is NOT FREE to worship other ‘gods’ for if he were to do so the judgement and punishment for this disobedience ( for this taken freedom) would be death.

    The Lord Jesus Christ, Son of the One Creator, said that we are to worship ONLY the One Lord your Creator God and HIM Alone to SERVE in obedience and love, love for HIM first and foremost and love for, to do GOOD according to the One True Way, to the fellow man.

    Very soon, the Lord Jesus Christ will return, as a thief in man’s eyes, to rule the earth in obedience and power as the ONE KING according to the Will of ‘I AM’ and NOT according to man’s first love for “his freedom”, for his desire to serve and magnify oneself (XES).
    …and man will weep and clench his teeth in intense anger when his freedom will be no more.

    The Anointed Lord Jesus said to repent and to serve Only Him, the One True Way of Life.

  7. This may be old news for some, but thought it worth mentioning again. The Greek word “anti” and the Latin “vicar”, have the same base meaning, “instead of, substitute” (look up “vicar” in the online Catholic encyclopedia).

    So when they call the pope, vicar of Christ, they are really calling him anti-Christ. Romanism has been telling us for centuries who the antiChrist is, but they’ve been telling us in Latin, not Greek. Just thought some would find it interesting.

    • Thank you for your comment Larry 🙂 It’s definitely information worth mentioning. I have it on the home page along with quotes from Popes proclaiming that they are the Vicar of Christ, the substitute Christ. Blessing to you! David

    First of all we must find where he is. We shall find him where-ever pride is. Of course we all have pride some more than others.
    Our pride is our EGO, Satan works through our ego. When we have identified or should I say; have the courage to admit we have a puffed up ego, then we are on the way to understanding the workings of Satan and more importantly, know who he is on a one to one basis.
    Most of the teachings and parables of Jesus is about neutralising or controlling pride – (our EGO).
    Matthew 4:1-11 Satan Tempts Jesus
    “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”
    4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. (THE EGO LIVES BY BREAD ALONE.) SO DOES THE PAPACY.
    5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple,6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:
    ‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’and,‘In their hands they shall bear you up,
    Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
    7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.
    8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him,
    “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
    10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you,[d] Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.
    11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.
    John 13:26
    Jesus answered, “It is he to whom I will give this morsel of bread when I have dipped it.” So when he had dipped the morsel, he gave it to Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot.
    John 13:2

    • You almost got it but you’re off an little bit. I’m Catholic. When Satan offered “all these things I shall give you” you must realize that Satan was lying. Satan couldn’t give Jesus nothing because it was never his to give in the first place. He lies. Satan is prideful but he is also division, confusion henceforth Protestantism. Protestants do not have the authority from Christ, nor the apostles to start up an new church. When an person can start an new church and say it’s God’s church you have two problems, one, they are telling you an lie you believe the lie or not and two, it’s the biggest example of Humanism you can find. When Jesus said, the gates of Hades will not prevail against it, you believe it or you don’t. Those who believe Jesus in this statement are Catholic, those who don’t believe Jesus are Protestant or some other man-made religion. The Catholic’s have given us the Bible and the church. Protestants haven’t given us nothing but an bad headache. The reason the country is in an mess right now you could say it’s the fruit of Protestantism and you would be certainly correct. We have never been an united country because if we were we wouldn’t have ever been Protestant. The country is spiraling down to the depths and going to Hell but don’t think it was done by Catholics, but you can think it was Protestant in nature or some other man made religion and you’d be correct. If America fails and falls don’t come back and say to the Catholics it was us to blame because you would be in error. If your reject Catholic fine, but realize your family who lived 800 years ago if they were Christian were Catholic. The Great Apostasy are those who left the Catholic church and did something else beginning with Luther, etc. Catholic Bible has 73 books, Protestant 66 meaning incomplete. If you can trust and obey an 2000 year old Bible, why can’t you also trust and obey the 2000 year old Church? Don’t be an hypocrite and quit believing the lies. You have two choices, Catholic or atheist, man up and choose. Christ church didn’t fail because he said it would not fail. Why is this so hard for you people? You are quickly to hear and believe someone say something bad and the lies they tell you quickly believe about the Catholic church but do no research yourselves? How gullible. Queen Mary killed all those Christians in England that would not return to the Catholic church, it was wrong indeed, but the Catholic church never told her to do that she did it on her own choice and power. Read history man from an dependable source. Satan can not stand and will fall. If the Catholic church goes down guess who also goes down, Protestants. The only reason Protestants are prideful and standing on their own is because the Catholic church still stands with them they would fall just like Satan himself fell. Good thing the Catholic church is still around if you are Protestant because I know it would not stand without them. It’d be lucky to make it 400 or 500 years. Protestants are already cracking up and quickly losing members. Protestants killed way more people than Catholics did anyway. Remember Salem witch hunts, yeah Protestants. If an church is so committed to it that they would kill to make falling away members return or else, it’s not an false church, it would be the real thing. Protestants don’t hold to their churches this strong, and they never will, they just find another church, like an dime an dozen, but worthless. What the Catholics might have done was wrong or questionable but if they felt that strongly about it, it would not be an false church doing that it would be the real thing. Accept it or not but the Bible only supports Catholic churches, sorry. You can cut and paste, you can take half, you can make it say something else but it’s not going to cut the mustard. The church is like the mustard seed and it’s been growing now for 2000 years. It’s not the new church down the street, it’s not the church that was started in Cambridge, KY either, sorry.

      • “You almost got it”? Seriously? You obviously didn’t read any of the studies I posted. The fulfillment of the first part of Revelation is when God had the Catholic Monk, Martin Luther, read the Bible, and compare what the Popes of Rome taught to the Scriptures. He found out that the Roman Catholic Church is an apostate church, a Harlot Church, and that the Popes of Rome were the antichrist. Martin Luther came out of the Roman Church and was saved by faith alone. http://christianitybeliefs.org/end-times-deceptions/the-two-witnesses-of-revelation-11-deception/

        By the Catholic theologians own words, they proclaimed that Babylon pointed to Rome.

        Sylvester J. Hunter, a Jesuit, in his “Outline of Dogmatic Theology” (Vol I, p. 410) said: “There is no room for doubt that by the Babylon of the Apocalypse is meant the city of Rome. And down to the time of the Reformation it was the unanimous judgment of all writers… that the Babylon of St. Peter’s Epistle is the same Rome.”

        Cardinal Baronius, who lived from 1538-1607, said: “By Babylon is to be understood Rome.” “Rome is signified by Babylon; it is confessed of all.” (“Annals,” sec xvi, p. 344)

        Cardinal Bellarmine, who was an Italian Jesuit and a Cardinal of the Catholic Church, and one of the most important figures in the Counter-Reformation, said; “John, in the Apocalypse, calls Rome Babylon.” (“De Rom. Pont..” c. iii, 2, Preterea, Tome I, p 232, Colon 1615)

        Cardinal Newman, who was originally an evangelical Oxford academic and priest in the Church of England, before he joined the church of Rome, described the city of Rome as “a doomed city,” “amid the obscurities of the fearful Apocalypse.”

        You are in Babylon the Great, the Harlot Church, the enemy of Messiah and His followers. Come out of her!

      • Logic states that the tempter must have the rights in order for the temptation to be valid. You cannot offer anyone anything you have no ownership of. Jesus NEVER contested Satan’s claim to give power and riches to whoever he chooses. He rebukes him instead.

        Try again.

      • So your telling me that since I don’t follow the church or it’s pagan derived practices that I am doomed? The greatest thing I’ve done is to question the church and learn of God on my own. Anyone who blindly follows the church believing through it is the only way to salvation never read acts, or John. But instead believes what another man told them. The Lord said to test all spirits for there are many false prophets. It was also that we make NO IMAGES of anything In heaven or below, or put any Gods beside him. Yet the church has various statues, symbols, and prayers to hundreds of individuals who were in biblical days. Why do I need to bow before a giant cross with an ASSUMED IMAGE of Jesus, speaking of that, we don’t even know what he looked like. I don’t need to pray to an image or statue created by man to be close to God. I think anyone who truly believes and wants to know The one God feels it in their hearts when they can talk to God throughout their day and actively read and question the bible, and not just on Sunday, or at dinner, or before bed through prayer. I am of no religious affiliation other than someone who truly wants to know God, therefore I refuse to blindly follow any organization that claims to be the house of God. “Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.”-Mark 7:7. Do you practice Ash Wednesday? You do so in Vain according to Jesus because that is a rule of MAN. You actively worship on Sunday? Do you know the origin of SUNday? Do you call a priest Father? Do you go to confession? If you do don’t try to justify it I’m not against you. Im frustrated because even if someone knows the origins of the above rituals they still try to justify it and give no attempt to remotely discover the truth or change their ideas. I don’t understand how people can be so objective to the fact that yes, what you’ve been taught your entire life is not the truth. I had a friend tell me he couldn’t work on Sunday because it is the lords day. I told him he could feel better because the sabbath is the 7th day, to which he responded “no, that’s what the Jews believe”. How can I argue with someone who obviously never read the bible and follows the teachings of the church. I understand it’s what the Jews practice but it’s also stated in your CATHOLIC bible. But I know that there is no point because he is one of the many that is deceived by religion. The weird thing is that for the 10 years I went to church I never felt God, the years I prayed. But after leaving the church for awhile I began to ask questions and search for myself the true meaning of life which led me to actually read and research Gods teachings for myself. There are many of those in organized religions who are good people who truly believe in God, but they follow the laws created by man over a period of many years, I can not stress that enough, how is that so hard to accept, it is a fact. Research it, do what you need if you feel like I am completely wrong, unlike many I am open to being wrong, I want to know the truth. But don’t tell me it is right because it is 2000 years old. I feel sorry for you and suggest you go to your CHURCH and ask your FATHER as to why you need to go to him every Sunday to be welcomed into heaven. Ask him how he gets an organization out of Luke 17:21. God is within each and everyone who will search for him. You are deceived for you follow the inconsistent changing laws of men, not God. Yea be prideful, don’t question yourself because the church is 2000 years old when God was, is, and shall be forever. Again, I am not affiliated with ANY religious order. I want to know God through spirit and truth, not images, symbols, or traditions.

        • Thank you for sharing your heart! I was pulled out of ‘Church’ three years ago, and I’ve learned more Scriptural truth during those three years, than in all of the previous 40 years of being in Baptist and Calvary Chapel churches. I’ve had to learn that much of what my Pastors had taught my is not Scriptural, but the teachings of men, primary from the Roman Bishops and Popes. I know the Father and Son so much better now. Like you, I just want truth!

          But I know that there is no point because he is one of the many that is deceived by religion. The weird thing is that for the 10 years I went to church I never felt God, the years I prayed.

      • Come on, the catholic bible has more books because they added them for her destruction, ” If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to that person the plagues described in this scroll.” Revelation 21:18…
        The only way to find God is through Jesus. There is no place in the bible that says that Christians are Catholic. You are Christian if you believe in Jesus Christ the only God, and follow his way.
        The catholic church is full of demoniac power and it is working with the NWO to make us all slave, that is why they have being chasing us since the begging because the church itself is satanist and you just have to take a moment pray for the truth and do some research over the web to find it. The Catholic church tries to destroy what the bible teaches. Most of the Catholics don’t read the bible, they just protect and defend an institution completely corrupted, most of the catholics are confused regarding the bible, they can not talk about it because they fight with what they were taught by tradition, the world has thousands of proofs that the catholic church has millions of millions of dollars but they say we have to give to the poor, WAKE UP! they can elimated poorness 4 times if they would’ve wanted to but they don’t care they just want power and control over the masses and saying that mary saves, when there is nor even 1 verse that can confirm such thing. The only way to be a child of God is through Jesus Christ, He who died to save every one who believes in him. The world makes fun of Jesus because it doesn’t know him. To Jesus be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.

      • You cant turn simple into complicated and get the right answer.. First in antioch, believers were called Christians. Not Catholic. They were in fact already in possesion of a few of the biblical writings.. they did not need all 72 books, or even 66 to understand who Christ was and is, the one true God to salvation. You will find that many books were writen to the “Saints” Living people. How many souls were saved on the first day of Pentacost.. Saved by Peters preaching and saved that day, Added to the church,which are believers in the redemption by the blood of Jesus and faith only in him for salvation. Saved by faith thru grace,it is a gift of God. The church is the body of believers in Jesus Christ as Savior for their sins and who have repented, That is all. not the members of a building or certain church,IE Catholic.. How bold to say i am not saved by my faith in Christ because I dont believe your pope is God on Earth.. Man is the one destroying the bible because he explains it in such a way to have power over the people,,, wow that is exactly why Jesus spoke against the religious leaders of the Jews at that time. And we are still doing it and the Catholic Church is the worst of them all. I ll bet the thief on the cross is happy that Jesus saved him just because he Believed in Jesus…Thats all it took You do realize the hypocracy of things like the priest literally turning the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ, to fulfill what Jesus said about eating his flesh and Drinking his blood….Its a parable, wise up, We are to live daily in christ for he sustaines us. He is our salvation, spiritual food, not food to eat… Really eat his flesh literally. How stupid. Do you really think he abdicates eating human food. Just like the Pharrasses and Sadducces,, Blind leaders leading the blind and both will fall in a ditch.. Salvation is not complicated. Jesus said believe in him. John 3:16. Go ahead and try to work your way there. You will fail because you are not trusting Jesus and what he did for you alone, that which you cannot do, save yourself.
