No, as I said, the pope is supposed to be repeating God’s instructions by divine inspiration. Being God’s mouthpiece does not make you God or even god, just the messenger. Of course, that hasn’t always worked in practice as there have been many papal edicts that have been overturned.

It sure would be nice if the Pope could bring peace to the Middle East just not at Israel’s expense.

Calling him God incarnate is OT. This discussion is supposed to be about the Antichrist. ;-)

We get it you are anti catholic and the Pope is Satan, a popular view these days and one that hardly sets you apart as enlightened.

The pope has spoken the truth, if God wills peace in the middle east as part of humanity’s story than it will be so. It really is that easy.

Looks like the Pope never heard of free will. There will be peace only when all those involved freely choose to stop killing, and to work for peace.
Blaming the devil doesn’t solve the problem. It’s humans acting out of their free will who choose evil over good.

“The pope has spoken the truth, if God wills peace in the middle east as part of humanity’s story than it will be so. It really is that easy.”

Anybody can read the end of the story and figure that one out!

Let him spew. I like knowing who the ignorant and the bigots are.

...the pope is supposed to be repeating God’s instructions by divine inspiration. Being God’s mouthpiece does not make you God or even god, just the messenger.

Requesting a clarification, if you know the answer. Is the pope the only Roman Catholic with this ability? In other words, my main question is...

What makes the pope different than any true believer in the Lord Jesus Christ?

"More than once we have been on the verge of peace, but the evil one, employing a variety of means, has succeeded in blocking it,” the pope said June 8 at an evening ceremony in the Vatican Gardens. “That is why we are here, because we know and we believe that we need the help of God.”

God bless Pope Francis!

Apparently it is a bit difficult for you or you wouldn’t be engaging in this thread, unless of course you are motivated by narcissism.
