Maybe this doesn't belong in this forum, but this is where I spend most of my time posting and it seems that there is a good mix of ideas and opinions here. I watch this on the news over there in Rome. Thousands standing outside of the Pope's window hoping to get a glimpse of him or maybe just praying for him and it boggles my mind. You would think that Jesus himself was in there! Why do all these folks want to see him and kiss his hand or touch him? Isn't that what they did with Jesus when he was here in the flesh? I just don't get it, what draws them to one single human being, who is just human? It is troubling knowing that it is the RCC which will in some way be connected with the antichrist after the rapture. You can see how folks flock to this figure. It looks as though they are worshipping him. Will they know any different if the next Pope is that one who sneeks in unawares appearing to be an angel of light? I am in great distress and fear for all of these people who are being set up for the great deception which is to come upon this earth. I am a Christian. Paid for, purchased by the blood of Jesus Christ. I love God and live each day thinking of ways I may serve Him. Why don't I have any feelings whatsoever to even see the Pope, let alone kiss his hand? Why does it sadden me to see multitudes reacting in a worshipping way towards a single human being? Just some thoughts I have been pondering..... God Bless!
