The Bible says
"Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” -- Matthew 7:15
A serious warning from God’s Word for all Catholics:
A third angel followed them and said in a loud voice: "If anyone worships the beast and his image and
receives his mark on the forehead or on the hand, he, too, will drink of the wine of God's fury, which has been poured full strength into the cup of his wrath. He will be tormented with burning sulfur in the presence of
the holy angels and of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment rises for ever and ever. There is no rest
day or night for those who worship the beast and his image, or for anyone who receives the mark of his name."
The Bible says:
The antichrist will still be here when Jesus Christ returns (2 Thessalonians 2:8)
The antichrist cannot be a single personality because the antichrist has been here almost 2000 years so far.
The antichrist must be an office or a position of authority
The antichrist will not occupy a temple in Jerusalem but will occupy a place amongst what might initially appear to be the body of Christ. The antichrist will sit as the head of this false church. (2 Thessalonians 2:4)
There is only one possibility that can fulfill all these prophesies. And the pope is the only possible position that fulfills all of these scriptural prophesies.
But just as Jesus Christ is the only possible fulfillment of who was to be the Messiah, so too, the pope is the only possible fulfillment of who would be the antichrist. And still millions of people are blind to both!
Roman Catholics see the pope as Christ’s vicar, which means, substitute. The pope’s Latin title is Vicarius Filii Dei, which means "Substitute for the Son of God." In the Greek, "antichrist" simply means "in the place of Christ" Thus, by very definition, the pope IS the antichrist.
The word "Pope" means "Father." The word "Father" as a title was forbidden by Jesus Christ:
“And do not call anyone on earth 'father,' for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.”
