I have been watching the news and I am amazed at how many thousands of people came to Washington just to see him or maybe even touch him. This really confused me, because all I can think is that,”he is just a man”. Not only that but, get this! Many news reporters have compared him to Jesus Christ. The Pope may be very kind, loving, compassionate and selfless but he is not Jesus Christ. As a matter of fact he has no more access to God than you or I do. He may set a good example and play an important role of bringing about peace and harmony in this world but this world is only temporary and it is not our home. If he is not proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ then he is not using his status very effectively for the glory of God. The few times I have watched him speak it was political and self serving. This may be hard to believe to some people but the Pope is a sinner just like you and I. He does not have the power to forgive anyone of their sins. Only Jesus Christ can do that at anytime, anywhere and for anyone.
John 14:6 says, Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
I know many people will be offended by this post but that is okay. The truth stings, but the truth also saves souls. No matter what you have done, you can be forgiven. If you truly want to go to heaven, have your sins forgiven and live out the rest of your life with victory over sin then read these couple of scriptures and say this prayer right where you are at. God will hear your prayer and accept you right now. You do not have to ask the Pope or any other man.
Romans 10:13, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
John 3:16, For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Prayer: Lord Jesus Christ. I am a sinner in need of a savior. Please forgive me of my sins and come into my life and save my soul. I believe that You came to this earth and died on the Cross for my sins. I believe that you rose from the dead on the 3rd day. You did all of this so I could be saved and have eternal life with our Father God in heaven. From this day forward I make You the Lord of my life. Fill me with your Holy Spirit and may the rest of my days here on earth be lived to bring glory to you. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.
