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....
One could reasonably argue that “Thou shall have no other god before me” includes any number of Popes...
Divisions have weakened Christianity. Unity is strength.
Pope: Other Christian Denominations Not True Churches
Pope: Other Christians not true churches
Vatican says other Christian churches “wounded” (Non-Catholics not fullly Christian)
Vatican reiterates hardline on primacy of Catholic Church
Protestants and the Pope
Well, just wait until I'm Pope.
I'll be redefining a value or two for sure!
Right after I take the PopeMobile mudding at the river.
“Pope Benedict XVI declared yesterday that Christian denominations
other than his own were not true churches and their holy orders have
no value. “
I suspect the response of a lot of Prot/fundamentalist Christians
in the USA would sound like the GEICO Cavemen:
“What’s ‘holy orders’?”
I say that as a friendly observation as a fellow raised in a non-denominational
and fundamentalist Christian church. (and will quietly let pass the
good Pope’s claim of owning an exclusive franchise)
A little less theological dispute and a little more imitation of Christ would do us all good.
Take it from me, an improper Christian!
I just hope the pope doesn’t get himself a holy roman emperor any time soon. We all know how that turned out.
I’ve heard all this from my neighbors, and believe me they got an earfull. Try living with 11 neighbors, all RCs, and they are all attempting to be “the one” who bags the Protestant. lol Patrick Madrid’s book has really fired them up. They are all over 75...so you know I am respectful, though.
You have to give the pope a break though. It can’t be easy, even for a pro, to court the religions of the world and not tick off the faithful. You have to let them know they are extra special.
Yeh...I’m a smart*ss. Sorry, but I’ve had enough of this garbage. If RCs believe this teaching please get back to me in after we’re dead.
Good grief, this guy is nuts. He ought to read the Bible sometime and learn how God said to have no other God’s before Him. The pope is no God not even a little. He is just a man that has been dedicated to his religion.
He is obviously not a uniter either. The world has one main enemy and that is Islam and those that follow that cult that want to kill all of us and rule over us. The Pope should be more concerned about that, too bad he would rather just BS about other infidels. Sad really. I hope he apologizes and see’s we all need to join together to fight the enemy as best we can.

Sure am glad I’m not Catholic.
