18A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20Therefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

His fruits were bad though... He seemed to be a total idolator leading others into sin. If he had faith in Christ alone, he wouldn't have spent so much time talking about Mary.
The Pope qualifies as the "evildoer" that Jesus spoke about. As long as he taught what he believed that Rome is the only true Church and holds the keys to heaven....then he missed the gate of faith in Jesus. However this judment is based on his doctrine and practice.
No Pope firstly can be saved, else they would reject their office and repent - wish that would happen just once, that would be so glorifying to God.
Secondly being buried in a Trapezoid shaped coffin with the same markings as on the ones explained and drawn by Anton La Vey founder of the Church of Satan who was also founder of the Order of the Trapezoid, he explains that the Trapezoid is a powerful occult shape which draws in and holds dark energy to purpose the resurrection of the dead one.
Also the use of the M and the cross is exactly same as Anton La Vey's drawing which has and upside down cross and a W.
What though is interesting is that they are not claiming to be opposed to each other. The Popes coffin merely was facing the cameras in a different direction but when you turn the coffin in the correct way to match that of La Vey's presto, we have both an upside down cross and the letter W.
W in reference to the Hebrew letter vav which is 6.
No way the Pope in heaven bound, he is bound somewhere else.
People who preach a different gospel do not go to heaven:
"Though we or an angel preach any other gospel than what we have preached, let him be accursed." Galatians 1:8
"As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." Galatians 1:9
With the Last Rights and all of the other foolish, unbiblical Romish dogmaone must believe what the Pope confessed with his own mouth while alive, hopelessly clinging to the unbiblical merits of the saints and mary because of the anti-biblical doctrine that says that the life and death of Jesus Christ was not sufficient!!!
John Yurich wrote:Will you please respond to the question about old lady O'Hair? Do you believe that old lady O'Hair being an atheist and thus a false teacher did not repent and receive Christ as Savior before she was murdered? William J. Murray the son of old lady O'Hair did not state flat out that his mother did not repent and receive Christ as Savior before she was murdered because Murray knows that only Christ knows who has and has not received Him as their Savior. And since I do not pay attention to anything that the Pope states then I am not under subjection to the Pope.
Faithful Remnant wrote:John, to claim to be Christ is a very serioius sin. I don't claim this, but I do have a word of testimony in the Bible and I believe what it says. Since popes are false teachers, it is best not to be in subjection to them even if we hope that on their deathbed they repented of the lies they have spread to millions of people.
John Yurich wrote:Haven't you ever heard of deathbed conversions?
Yes! I know salvation is a free gift that is not what I am talking about Salvation is a free gift to those who repent and believe NOT to those who seek to renegotiate and redefine the terms of salvation to give them license to continue on in the sins and sinful relationships they enjoy.
John, God simply does not change His terms to allow you or the late Pope nor anyone else to invent another way into heaven than the one way He has provided in His Son Jesus Christ.
Yes, John, I know many sinners are saved in saying a sinners prayer calling upon Jesus Christ to save them from their sins....this is something far different than those who abuse a "sinners prayer" to imagine they are now saved and will go to heaven when they die who have no intention to love, serve let alone obey Jesus Christ the sin in the lack of these things they needed to be saved from in the first place.
Think John why would you defend those openly disobedient (the RCC) to Christ
Faithful Remnant wrote:You are entitled to your opinion John. However, since I know no other news about the pope recanting false teaching, I am obliged to hold to the confession of the Apostles concerning false teachers. Praying to Christ does not guarantee giving up false doctrine. Catholics pray to Christ often asking forgiveness yet cherish their church's heresies. I wouldn't give up all hope for the Roman Church nor the Eastern Orthodox. I know there are those who desire reformation in these churches. Simply desiring isn't enough. They must act, protest, confess, cease from participating in the unbiblical rituals, etc.
Faithful Remnant wrote:Yes, John, I have heard of deathbed conversions. But how does this change my opinion? The pope was a false teacher as defined by the apostles and he never recanted to the best of our knowledge. Therefore, all I know is he is to be assigned the same place with other false teachers as the Apostles state.
