I posted a thread a few days ago on an infomercial I saw at BET. It was Doug Batchelor talking about his religion and his website amazingfacts.com. In his 30 minute infomercial it looks like he was asking his audience about Bible questions. It seemed to me more like Jeopardy but Bible questions. All of a sudden, Bible questions started to turn into attacks of the Catholic Church. Now of course I heard so many attacks towards the Catholic Church which is not new. But Doug Batchelor proved his point and was right on one attack he made on his infomercial.
If you get the book “Crossing the Threshold of Hope” ISBN 0-679-76561-1, Doug Batchelor pointed out on page 3 that the Pope is 2nd to the trinity. Now I know for a fact that this is not TRUE. Anyone reading this, the Pope is not 2nd to the trinity. But wait, if you get this book Exporter and read on page 3 what it says, it says:
“The Pope is considered the man on earth who represents the Son of God, who “takes the place” of the Second Person of the omnipotenent God of the Trinity.”
We all know as Catholics that the pope is not 2nd to the trinity, but Doug Batchelor proved his point. It says it in the front of the book by His Holiness John Paull II. I talked to RNRobert and he stated that the author of the book said this not the Pope. And I agree with that. But the point of the matter is, what is said in this book is wrong on page 3 about the pope being 2nd to the trinity. Exporter do you believe this? Get the book and you will see.
The Pope should never ever endorse a book without really looking at what the contents are in the book. What do you want me to do Exporter when you have Doug Batchelor or any protestant getting this book and criticizing my pope because of a strong statement as being 2nd to the trinity. This is not a mild comment but a strong comment which should be taken seriously. Would you exporter sign a piece of paper or contract without reading it?
Now I am not a seventh day adventist or a protestant. I am a full pledged catholic and have been since birth. I have been in Catholic School from 1st grade to high school and went to seminary school to become a priest but changed my mind. The catholic religion to me is the best religion out there. But there are problems. No church has no problems. When I was in seminary school we had to be interviewed and if one of us were going to be a priest, none of us should have female tone of voice or we can’t be a priest. I see the argument why the church does this and to me it is wrong but I can see why. When we were taught in the seminary school that when we preach in church one day that we are to make little mention about satan and the devil. This I disagree on a lot. We should mention a lot about satan and his evil works. How can you fight sin if you don’t know your enemy??? The Catholic Church is real good when it comes to exorcisms. Better than the Pentecostals who spit on a small towel to scare the devil or the Lutherans who wear monk garments or any religion. But there will always be problems in any Church.
To sum it up, the pope is not 2nd to the trinity. The book should be redone and have this error corrected.
