Nonetheless, evangelicals need to be in deep prayer that we may one day have an “evangelical Pope.” After all, the Roman Pope claims to be the successor of the Apostle Peter.

For when Jesus asked the disciples if they knew who He was, it was Peter who declared this truth: “You are the Son of the living God.”

Peter never viewed himself as the embodiment of Christ on earth. In fact, he called himself a “servant of Jesus.”

Thus we need to pray in our hearts and on our lips that our Roman Catholic friends would call a pope who truly sees himself like Peter—as a servant of Jesus, and as a proclaimer of salvation through Jesus and nothing else.
