Well, gosh, that just goes to prove their point, now, doesn't it?
Focusing on the LORD wouldn’t hurt either.
My second thought was that I’m glad that who is or isn’t a ‘proper Christian’ isn’t a choice of the pope, that decision is God’s.
Well, you have to be kind of an idiot to belong to a religion you didn’t think was the one true one.
I agree....lots of panes in the glass house of the Pope....
That's the difference between a Christian and a Catholic...
One could reasonably argue that “Thou shall have no other god before me” includes any number of Popes...
Hopefully I don’t understand what you are saying. Please expand.
Divisions have weakened Christianity. Unity is strength.
You understood perfectly. Unfortunately.

Protestants and the Pope
If you are offended, I apologize...It is just my opinion based on my observations...
So, then, you concede Osama bin Laden’s brand of Islam is just as much the one, true religion as the Anglicans?
The Pope didn’t say anything about who’s going to Heaven and who isn’t. He simply said that the only legitimate apostolic succession rests with the Roman Catholic Church. And in that, he is stating the simple truth. You don’t even have to be Catholic, or believe that that matters, to acknowledge that.
Sorry if that offends anybody, but it’s the fact.
And some folks consider that a good thing. I can see why the ECT crowd would be unhappy.
No, I believe I'll limit it to Christianity...
