To prepare for the recent visit of the “Pope”, certain lawmakers were given the task of ensuring that fellow members of Congress would refrain from trying “to rush up to the pope to kiss his ring, touch his clothing or otherwise snag a photo op.”
The fact that plans would have to be made to avoid such behavior is indicative of the carnal mindset that the (Roman) Catholic Church has ingrained within its followers when it comes to how the position of the “Pope” is viewed by the average Catholic looking for the chance to fall down at the feet of Peter’s “successor”.
I have no doubt in my mind that Peter would correct the Catholic Church and its followers for creating the supposed earthly kingdom and head-of-the-church along with all the centuries-old pomp, circumstance, fawning, and idol worship that millions of deceived Catholics around the world give to the monarchical “Holy Father” as they fall at his feet to adore nothing more than a man who wears the created crown of a worldly mindset that Peter shunned when it was offered to him.
Wake up my Catholic friends and Christ shall give you the light (Ephesians 5:14).
“As Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him and fell down at his feet and worshiped him. But Peter lifted him up, saying, “Stand up; I myself am also a man.”” (Acts 10:25-26)
