Since a while now i've been convinced the pope (papacy itself) is the antichrist, it's a rather controversial theory and i'm aware of that, but i got my reasons to think so..
Reasons for my "theory";
1 John 2:22; "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son."
Explaination; The pope himself says that he is Christ on earth, everyone who says he is either God or Jesus on earth is according to the bible blasphemous.. Quote from Pope Pius X; "The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ himself, hidden under a veil of flesh. Does the Pope speak? It is Jesus Christ who speaks. Does the pope accord a favor or pronounce an anathema? It is Jesus Christ who pronounces the anathema or accords the favor. So, when the Pope speaks, we have no business to examine. We only have to obey." Pope Leo XIII: "We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty", Pope Gregory IX: "Wherefore, if those things that i do, be said to be done not of man, but of God; what can you make me but God?".. I think these quotes speaks for itself.
2 Corinthians 11:14
"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
Needs no explaination.
