I once read an article written by Richard Bennett of Berean Beacon, a man who claimed to be a former Catholic priest, speaking about how one of the indicators of the antichrist was that he would be gathering everybody into one, and he pointed it to the pope.
Now, first off, I have a hard time believing that Bennett is a former priest, mainly because of the discrepancies in his research regarding Catholic Doctrine and Dogma. Either that or he was very poorly catechized.
But his comments make me nervous lately, as I review information coming in about Bergoglio supported civil unions while he was a bishop (abcnews.go.com/blogs/headlines/2013/03/pope-francis-supported-civil-unions-as-cardinal/), and stated it was possible that the celibacy discipline in the Latin Rite could be overturned (worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/03/20/17386717-pope-francis-spoke-of-being-dazzled-by-girl-possible-change-of-celibacy-rule?lite). Also, my chaplain from high school posted a picture on facebook of Bergoglio meeting with Bartholomew, patriarch of the Eastern Orthodox Church, at his inaugural mass, the first time this has happened in 1,000 years…
How do we know the pope is not the antichrist of Revelation 13? Or Daniel?
