An Evangelical Pope?

the Church of Christ is His body...those who have 'confessed' and believed in Him (Romans 10:9-10), received Him (John 1:12), and have been Born Again by His Spirit (John 3:3). Those who love the traditions and commandments of men over the authority of God's word are deceived.

You, Andy--are demonstrably one of the BLIND, being led by blind lost sheep.

The Church is Peter's sheep, He's the apostle Jesus assigned Shepherd in the world. His body is indeed the Catholic Church in the world; and lost sheep like evangelicals are lesions; scrapes and scratches; that inflict pain on His Mystical Body. The Head of His body has not given up on you, however. You must heal, that's His divine will.

The media, including some in the Christian media, throw around the word evangelical with little understanding of its proper definition. Most recently, the media has done this in referring to Pope Benedict XVI as the “Evangelical Pope.”

In an attempt to say he’s a missionary-minded Pope, or a proselytizing Pope, they impart a title that would probably make him most uncomfortable.

I have a deep respect for Pope Benedict. Respect for his impressive intellect. Respect for his strong stand on moral issues. Respect for his belief in the uniqueness of Jesus Christ for salvation. Respect for his levelheadedness in understanding other...
