The Pope is the Vicar of Hell
By David J. Stewart | April 2009 | Updated February 2018
Revelation 2:14, “But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.”

I love Catholics, but I detest their false religion. I am writing this article simply because I care about others, and I don't want you to go to Hell forever because you believed a LIE. The Roman Catholic church is a BIG LIE!!! It is organized religion of the finest sort, but it is not biblical Christianity. The pope is a liar, a fraud, and he cannot lead you into Heaven with sacraments (i.e., human effort). And of a surety, the pope does NOT represent God upon the earth! What fool ever started that tradition? The pope is often referred to as the Vicar of Heaven. No, he's the Vicar of Hell.
No pastor or Christian leader should ever speak highly of the Catholic Pope. Years ago I heard a Baptist pastor speak of Pope John Paul II as a “godly man.” No, the Pope is the Vicar of Hell (and sadly now he's burning in the fires of Hell). The Pope is the representative of Satan! The Catholic Church is straight out of the pits of Hell. I say this truthfully, not to be unkind. The average person is blinded to satanic deceptions, which includes Roman Catholicism. The free gift of God is eternal life (Romans 6:23), and it cannot be merited through human effort, water baptism, holy communion, or any other so-called “sacraments” or good deeds, nor church membership. You either receive the gift of God freely by faith in the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, or else you burn in Hell when you die.
The man who adds personal works to faith is not saved. Romans 3:20, “Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.” Nor can he be saved until he repents of his “dead works” (Hebrews 6:1). That is, he “hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his” (Hebrews 4:10b). To be saved, the self-righteous man must cease from his own labors, and completely rest in the finished redemptive work of Christ. Hebrews 4:11, “Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.” What's that, you point out that the Bible says to “labour” to enter into God's rest. Yes, and here is the ONLY “work” which you must do to be saved, according to Jesus Christ... John 6:28-29, “Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”
God deliver us from the pansy, compromised, money-hungry, lukewarm preachers of this untoward generation, who have turned aside after the greedy error of Balaam, hobnobbing with the ecumenical crowd. “Ecumenical” is a synonym for sinful compromise with the world. Ecumenical is what Dr. Ravi Zacharias is! Ecumenical is what Bob Jones University is! Just as Balaam misled God's people, so do pastors today harm their congregations when they fail to expose false prophets like the Pope. It is tragic that many pastors nowadays are catering to Catholics by censoring the truth, beating-around-the-bush, dipping-their-sails, and avoiding offending Catholics. I say, OFFEND THEM! The Bible is the most offensive Book in existence, because it is THE TRUTH. If God was worried about offending people, then He would have written the Bible very differently, but He didn't. God said what He meant, and meant what He said.
That is one big reason that I expose Contemporary Christian Music (CCM), because the music and singers attract unsaved Catholics, because the artists are all so vague and lacking any doctrinal position. Many of the CCM performers are Roman Catholics! The Devil uses ecumenical music to break down biblical separation between believers and unbelievers. ...
2nd Corinthians 6:14-17, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”
What a bunch of sell-outs in the CCM industry! I'd rather stand for something than fall for anything! What do you believe? Not one (and I mean not one) CCM artist preaches the Gospel of Jesus Christ on their website. Third Day's song, “Born Again” is corrupt, wrongly defining being “born-again” as a mere “feeling”! The Holy Bible teaches that salvation is a new birth by the Holy Spirit of God (1st Peter 1:23; John 3:1-7), which has nothing to do with a religious experience or feelings. Forgiveness of sins is the gift of God. You don't even have to “ask” God to save you, because our sins have already been paid for by Jesus' precious blood through the cross (1st Peter 1:18-19). To be saved, you simply need to freely receive God's gift by faith in Jesus Christ. Romans 3:24, “Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.” God promises in 1st Corinthians 1:21b to “SAVE THEM THAT BELIEVE.” So you don't get saved by asking (although you can ask if you want), you get saved by BELIEVING. The person who admits they are a sinner and BELIEVES The Gospel is saved immediately, securely and forever!!!
Run From the Deadly Cult of Roman Catholicism!
I want to vomit when I see nuns, dressed like penguins, chanting the Rosary like a satanic cult (MP3). After a life of religious devotion, Catholics will plunge into the depths of Hell beneath. The Gospel is NOT religion! Luke 13:23-24, “Then said one unto him, Lord, are there few that be saved? And he said unto them, Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able.” All of the apostates and Catholics waving their hands in the air, chanting their dead songs, quoting their memorized religious lingo—they'll all split Hell wide open when they die. The unsaved heathen world views Catholics as Christians, but they are not. Catholics trust the Seven Sacraments of the church to save them.
Will This Happen To You In Eternity? Many Shall Seek To Enter Heaven, But Shall Not Be Able! (a clip from the end of the 2008 religious film, “Pilgrim's Progress”). Oh my friend, please don't be a fool. If you die in your sins, having all the religion in the world to your credit, the Lord will call you a “worker of iniquity” (Matthew 7:21-23). YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN!!! Have you receive the new birth, which is by faith alone in Christ Jesus? You need the righteousness of God dear one, because you are a dirty, no good, filthy, rotten, guilty sinner (and so am I). That's why God sent His only begotten (biological) Son into the world, to suffer and die on the cross to pay for your sins and mine (John 3:16). Jesus paid it all, and I owe Him nothing! But because I am “bought with a price” (1st Corinthians 6:20), it is only “reasonable” (Romans 12:1) that I should serve Him, although it is NOT required to be saved. That “price” is the precious blood of Jesus, the Lamb of God (John 1:29)!!!
America has gone so low into sin that there are even gay and lesbian Catholic and Protestant churches. Of course, these are not biblical churches. These are countless religions—and religion is a road to Hell! Most people who profess Christ are going to Hell, because they have been deceived by the Devil to accept a substitute for the Gospel, trusting instead in a hybrid plan of salvation that mixes works with grace (Hebrews 11:6). There's no such thing as a gay and lesbian “church.” Anyone, even the Devil, can claim to be a “minister of righteousness” or “an angel of light” (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15), but that doesn't mean they are (Matthew 7:15). Satan is a beautiful liar! Some of the worst things done in history were done with good intentions. Many ministers view their work as a mere profession, which is why we see women clergy who deny Christ's resurrection and even claim to be atheists (I'm not kidding). Remember, even the coming Antichrist will claim to be God (the Messiah) to deceive his victims (2nd Thessalonians 2:4).
The Pope is the World's Biggest Fool
I once heard the statement: “The Pope is a dope and he has no hope.” Kindly, I'd have to agree. The Pope perverts the Gospel, leading the masses into hell-fire, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men (Mark 7:6-13). I do not say this to be unkind, but to speak the truth and warn people. There is no hope in the Catholic faith, because it is based upon manmade traditions and not the commandments of God. Conservatively, there are an estimated 1,000,000,000 Catholics in the world, and every one of them will burn in Hell when they die if they follow the errant teachings of the Catholic Church. Many Roman Catholics that I've met are arrogant, puffed-up with sinful pride, defensive of their religion, and very closed-minded to the truth of God's Word. Whereas they revere their ungodly Catholic priests with the highest regard. They look up to their Catholic priests as being incapable of doctrinal error. You'll never find a Bible in the pews of a Catholic church (at least I never have seen one when I've visited). Instead, everything is memorized from childhood, and they know the religious lingo like the palm of their hand. It's creepy!
Let me share with you the official dogma (doctrine) of the Catholic Church, which was completed on December 8, 1965 by Pope Paul VI in a declaration titled VATICAN II.The following quote is taken from Vatican II...
This holy Council first of all turns its attention to the Catholic faithful. Basing itself on scripture and tradition, it teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church. He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and baptism (cf. Mk. 16:16; John 3:5), and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it, or to remain in it.
SOURCE: Vatican Council II—The Conciliar and Post Conciliar Documents, published by the Roman Catholic Church and contains the Imprimatur: Walter P. Kellenberg, D.D., Bishop of Rockville Centre, Aug. 12, 1975. “Imprimatur" is the official Catholic stamp of approval and means “let it be printed.”
So according to Pope Paul VI, Jesus is the only way to Heaven, but the body of Jesus is the Catholic Church, and being water baptized is the door into which a person MUST enter the church. Oh boy, what satanic garbage! Vatican II states that a person CANNOT go to Heaven who doesn't get water baptized into the Catholic Church; and anyone who leaves the Catholic Church will not go to Heaven either. This is NOT what the Word of God teaches in the Holy Bible my dear friend. Remember, Satan is a beautiful liar!
We are plainly told in Romans 10:3,4, “For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.” We are taught in Ephesians 2:8,9, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.” And again we read in Philippians 3:9, “And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith.” Salvation is of the Lord, not men (Jonah 2:9). Eternal life is a free gift (Romans 5:15, 6:23). Salvation is receiving, not giving. It is received, not achieved. Salvation is a TAKE proposition, not a GIVE proposition. God only saves those who are TRUSTING to be saved, not those who are TRYING to be saved.
Listen to this junk theology from Pope Benedict XVI...
Pope says Faith in Christ is NOT Necessary to Salvation!

Nonbelievers Too Can Be Saved, Says Pope
Refers to St. Augustine's Commentary on Psalm 136 (137)
VATICAN CITY, NOV. 30, 2005 (Zenit.org).- Whoever seeks peace and the good of the community with a pure conscience, and keeps alive the desire for the transcendent, will be saved even if he lacks biblical faith, says Benedict XVI.
The Pope made this affirmation today at the general audience, commenting on a meditation written by St. Augustine (354-430).

That is blasphemy and damnable heresy! Acts 4:10-12 teaches that salvation is found ONLY in the precious name of Jesus. Romans 4:5-6 teaches that a person's faith is counted for righteousness, but the Pope says self-righteousness can substitute for faith in Christ. On what authority does he base this these statements? The truth is that he has no authority, except himself. Notice that the Pope never quotes any Scriptures! Catholics just make things up as they go, concocting whatever traditions they want, and then teaching those traditions instead of the Bible. Mark 7:9, “And He said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.”

The Catholic Church is NOT the Body of Christ. Water baptism is NOT a door into the Church. Vatican II is of the Devil (now they have Vatican III, which is also of the Devil). The Pope is a liar! Water baptism will just get you wet. There is only one Door and that is Jesus, “I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture” (John 10:9). When a lost sinner acknowledges their guilt of sin and comes for salvation by way of faith in the blood sacrifice of God's dear Son, that sinner is forgiven and born-again by God's grace. Vatican II is manmade Catholic tradition and a lie of Satan. Salvation is by faith alone in the finished redemptive work of Jesus Christ.
It is disturbing that few Baptist pastors today are preachers anymore. They have become administrators, politicians and business types, fraternizing with the business community, while the world goes to Hell. I tell you, the great need of the hour is preaching preachers! I once heard Pastor Jack Hyles say, in a sermon, that one of the biggest problems in churches today are high society wealthy women, who like to henpeck and control the pastor. I also heard Dr. Hyles say that businessmen are destroying churches! The preacher ought not be for sale! Every pastor in the world should cry aloud against the damned religion of Roman Catholicism (and that includes Russian Orthodox Catholicism too). The catholic church is not a bible-believing church; they are a cult! Catholics trust in a manmade sacramental salvation instead of the Gospel (Good News) of the Lord Jesus Christ alone. My faith is solely in Christ's death on the cross, burial and bodily resurrection three days later; and not in the Eucharist, water baptistry or some sinful priest.
When Pope John Paul II died, President Bush, Jack Van Impe, Pat Robertson and other apostates praised the Pope, expressing their admiration for the heretic, thus shaming the Savior and contradicting their profession of having Christian faith. No Christian who is right with God, would ever speak highly of the leader of the biggest false religious cult in the world. There is no doubt that the Pope and many Catholics are sincere, but the road to Hell is often paved with good intentions. But sincere or not, the Pope's sincerity is totally irrelevant to the fact that he is corrupting God's plan of salvation and leading people into perdition (the damned end of the wicked). There is a curse from God upon the Catholic Church! The Pope is the Vicar of Hell (which is where Pope Paul VI and Pope John Paul II are presently burning and Pope Benedict XVI is headed). Only an apostate minister would refrain from exposing the Pope as being of Satan. Catholicism is a prisonhouse of religion.
Luke 11:44, “Woe unto
you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are as graves
which appear not, and the men that walk over them are not aware of them.”
Is the Pope the Vicar of Christ?
