Seeing the Pope through the Scriptures

If you want to SEE THE POPE you will have to visit him in person or watch him on television because the papal position in church leadership of one man holding the office as the head of the church on earth is NOT SEEN in the bible. Jesus Christ, who is in heaven, is the only head of the church. “And he (Jesus) is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. (Col. 1:18; cf. Eph. 1:22-23). There is no delegation of authority from heaven to the church through the Pope. Authority from heaven comes through Jesus (Matt. 28:18-20; 1 Tim. 2:5). Church organization in the body of Christ consists of elders (Tit. 1:5-9) preachers (2 Tim. 4:1-5), and deacons (1 Tim. 3:8-13). “Paul and Timotheus (Preachers), the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons” (Phil. 1:1). The Pope as the head of the church is biblical error.

If you want to SEE THE HOLY FATHER you will have to visit your bible because the Holy Father is NOT SEEN physically on earth in the position of the Pope in scripture. In the spiritual sense, Jesus said, “And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven” (Matt. 23:9). Our Lord also said, “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name” (Matt. 6:9). This means the Pope is not what he and many others claim him to be. He is not the Holy Father or a Holy Father and neither should anyone approach him for spiritual forgiveness or help. Our spiritual help and forgiveness comes from the throne of our Father, which is in the heavens (Heb. 4:16; 8:1). The Pope as the Holy Father is biblical error.

If you want to SEE GOD you must visit your bible and not the Pope parade. The word “Pope” is NOT SEEN at all in the word of God, the bible. Because the Pope is not God on earth as many believe. There is only one God (Mark 12:29,32; 1 Cor. 8:4-6; Eph. 4:6; 1 Tim. 2:5). Our God and Creator consists of three persons; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; 1 John 5:7). Notice that the Pope is not one of the three. The Pope allows himself to be worshiped in contradiction to scripture. “Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve” (Matt. 4:10). There is a bible warning, which fits the Pope like a glove. “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God” (2 Thess. 2:4). The Pope as God on earth is biblical error.
