"Since you say you see.... your sin remains". You have no ability or right to judge whether or not Pope Benedict XVI or Pope John Paul II have been saved by being "born again" of the Spirit. My best guess is they have, certainly their lives of devotion, faith in Jesus and love of every soul on earth, remain a far cry from those who sit back on their comfy cozy chairs responding to such leaders of the Faith after a good football game and a couple of beers, then spew words from the bible, that they clearly do not understand. Nor does the Lord need me to stand up for His Church on earth, the keys to which were given to St. Peter and his successor Popes of the Catholic Church. The gates of hell will not prevail against this Church.
