I’ve been reading a lot of prophesies; and I know that I should not believe too readily in them. However, I have noticed that many of these prophesies speak about a pope in the near future who will be captured from Rome, taken to the Middle-East and martyrred. Supposedly the city of Rome is also to be destroyed.
Anyhow, this has got me thinking: if a large portion of Muslims declares a holy war against the West (which includes Christians and Jews), would a future pope declare a counter crusade against any invading Muslim forces? Or, would a future pope not declare a crusade, choosing the path of Christian submission, and speak against a crusade?
