Isn’t the Pope supposed to be God incarnate? If so, why hasn’t he brought peace to the Middle East?

There WILL be peace and victory in the Holy Land and on Earth. God's not in the business of losing.

That’s an interesting idea, since God plainly will not allow any “two-state solution” to be permanent.

NO, the Pope is not God Incarnate.

I hope you're trying to be sarcastic with this question. If not, you really need to do some research. Thx.

It was set up that way before Joshua crossed the Jordan. IMO, it is obvious even in the correlations between the blessings upon the descendants of Abraham and Ishmael.

He is the Holy Father, right? The Holy See who sees all and knows all? The only one who can interpret his own words written in the Bible?

“The pope can do all things God can do.”
Pope Clement VI., Acta Clementis, c. 1350; cited in the Roman Catholic publication: Granfield, Patrick, The Limits of the Papacy, NY: Crossroad, 1987; p.36.

Of course, that might be taken out of context.

I agree that it will take a literal miracle to bring peace to that region.

Interesting. I thought the Pope was supposed to be familiar with Scripture.

Obama and his worshipers think Obama is God.

Obama to Pope: “I know, I know...but I’m busy right now with a bunch of scandals...”

There will be no peace until after the apocalypse. I would assume the Pope has read Revelation.

You are insulting and absurd. I have my disagreements with Catholic leadership. However, NO true Catholic thinks the Pope is “God Incarnate”. Your post is bigoted and does nothing to promote the conservative cause.

This might have been an interesting thread.

Unfortunately you decided to make it about your ignorance and bigotry.

“Isn’t the Pope supposed to be God incarnate?”

No, the pope is supposed to be given divine inspiration directly from God. Therefore the opinion of the pope is supposed to be infallible.

Isn’t being infallible render one God or a god?
