Hello all, I have a question? I have a Mormon friend at work. We have already talked about our different theological views and I have really stumped him with some good questions. I have to give these forums thanks of course for all the great information. Today he asked me if the Pope is a prophet. I told him…
- I would get back to him with the definitive answer.
- I do know he is infallible in the teachings of Faith and Morality
Then he asked me " But is he a prophet". I remembered a topic here…a Protestant ( I wont mention names ) was so adamant about the Pope not self interpreting and prophesysingthe end of times in the book of Revelation and how the Catholic Church was keeping us in the dark. I told my friend that we(the CC) can not make self proclaimed prophesies about the end of times because then that would make us like all the other false prophets and we would be in error. It seems to me that some Protestants want the Catholic Church to do this so they can finally say the we are in error but I know that our Church will never do that, anyways my friend walked away rather perplexed about what I told him. How can I explain this in its fullness.
