Names Attributed to the Pope
2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 ...'Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.'
This man of sin as we can see would exalt himself as God and act as if he were God himself. Now we have already shown you in this site that the pope is exalted as if he was God himself, and below we will show you the names that are attributed to the pope, which again, exalts him to a position he has no right to be in.
POPE - This is the most obvious title given and it means "Father"
VICAR OF CHRIST - This title means that the pope is the "head" of the church.
PONTIFF - This title means that the pope is the "bridge builder" between heaven and earth.
HOLY FATHER - And not only is he called the father, he is called the "holy father".
Now if we take a look at some Bible verses, we will see that these titles belong ONLY to Christ Jesus or our Heavenly Father.
Matthew 23:9 ...'And call no man your father upon the earth: for ONE is your Father, which is in heaven.' ... So Jesus Christ clearly said that no man on earth should be called "father" (as in a religious guise, not your parent who you were born from). And yet the pope is called father by his followers, in direct disobedience to what Jesus commanded.
Ephesians 5:23 ...'For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the HEAD of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.' ... How clear is this!! Christ Jesus is the "Head" of the church, not the pope.
John 14:6 ...'Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.' ... So Jesus is the ONLY "bridge builder" between heaven and earth. Man can only come to God through Jesus, not through the pope.
John 17:11 ...'And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.' ... So Jesus addresses God, His Father as the "Holy Father". The pope should NOT be called the holy father as there is only ONE, and that is our Heavenly Father.
The Roman Catholic pope is exalted just like that "man of sin" as revealed in Thessalonians. He is exalted and worshipped by his followers, when their exaltation and worship should ONLY go to Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. Jesus gave clear commands that we should not give a man the same "name" as is given to God. That "man of sin" has certainly been revealed!Tweet
