U.S. Evangelical Protestants Favored Pope
John Paul II was probably the most popular pope ever among America's evangelical Protestants, while leaders of more liberal mainline denominations looked upon him more warily than his three papal predecessors.

John Paul inherited a Catholic-Protestant situation that had changed almost instantly with the Second Vatican Council's 1964 decree on ecumenical involvement with non-Catholics and 1965 declaration endorsing religious freedom.

One sign of the thaw: Protestants had long made it inconceivable for the United States to extend diplomatic recognition to the Holy See but raised little ruckus when President Reagan sent the first U.S. ambassador to John Paul's Vatican.

After Vatican Two, Rome had launched formal unity talks with the Orthodox, Lutherans, Anglicans and other non-Catholics. But there were few contacts with the burgeoning evangelical movement, which was highly decentralized, firmly ...

Second half of first letter.
Matthew 19:25-26 25 When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said, "Then who can be saved?" 26 And looking at them Jesus said to them, "With people this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Ephisians2: 8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: [it is] the gift of God:
John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."
John 3:7 -"Do not be amazed that I said to you, `You must be born again.
John 10:26-28 "But you do not believe because you are not of my sheep. 27 "My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; 28 and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand.
Romans 8:1 [There is] therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.
If you died today,without being born again you will spend eternity with a very sobering regret.

Well said Michael from Hixson, Tennessee. And I will add this.
Proverbs 14:12-12 12 There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of
death.
Jeremiah 17: 5 Thus says the Lord: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord.
Acts 13:41 "Look, you scoffers! Be astonished and die! For what I am doing today is something that you will not believe, even when someone explains it to you!' "
Jeremiah 17:9 "The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
Romans 3:10-18 As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one; 11 There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. 12 They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one." 13 "Their throat is an open tomb; With their tongues they have practiced deceit"; "The poison of asps is under their lips"; 14 "Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness." 15 "Their feet are swift to shed blood; 16 Destruction and misery are in their ways; 17 And the way of peace they have not known." 18 "There is no fear of God before their eyes."
Matthew 19:25-26 25 When the disciples heard this, they were very astonished and said, "Then who can be saved?" 26 And looki

"I personally know of 3 missionaries martyered by the Catholic Church leaders in Mexico."

What legal action has been taken? That is a massive accusation, and one which ought to be taken up with the relevant authorities ASAP.

It saddens me to here of anyone diing unless they are born again. For an evangelical church to favor the pope also saddens me, The Catholic church in America is not the same Catholic church through-out the rest of the earth, especially in the 3rd world nation. It is the Catholic church that is responsible for much of the persecution of the missionary efforts of evangelicals. I personally know of 3 missionaries martyered by the Catholic Church leaders in Mexico. It is time to let the people of america know the truth of the Catholic church. I don't know all of the statistics, but the catholic church is the resistance to the Preaching of Jesus in most of the Nations that are not Muslim. Thanks for this section where we can respond to articles for others to tell what they have both seen and heard. The Lord Jesus Bles you. Jeff Olson

Jim,

Maybe it's because you're fundamentalists and not evangelicals

Gentleman, of the three comments before mine, and more important than mine, I will agree completely. I will point out one other thing -- WHERE IS THE ACLU WHEN YOU NEED IT!!!! They say they are protecting religious liberties and separation of church and state, why didn't they make any effort to stop the lowering of federal and state flags for this heretic? I feel like we are living in a banana Republic. I don't know which evangelicals that the author of this article talk to, but he certainly didn't talk to any of the leaders or members of Indian Hills Community Church. The people who signed the ECT most assuredly did not represent the majority of evangelicals.

I had just are read that the Catholic Church testified against a Christian organization in Australia who were preaching the truth about Islam. False religions stick together.

Beloved,

Isa 9:16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.

There is simply no way that a faithful servant of Jesus Christ can endorse any leader who leads people away from Christ to call upon other names for their salvation. And if these 'leaders' are not faithfully serving Jesus Christ who are they serving and if you or follow them and their teaching who will we really be serving?

Thank God!
Rom 3:3 For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?

The issue must always come down to maintaining the doctrine of Justification by faith alone in Christ alone by God's irrestable grace alone. Without that, there is no good news.

The heresies condemned by the leaders of the Protestant Reformation continue to be taught by the Roman Catholic Church and the Pope. How sad it is to see Evangelical leaders repudiate their heritage in order to praise John Paul II and his church. How sad it is that some Fundamentalists seem to be in a contest to make sure their statements about Roman Catholicism are politically correct.

I had a dear Roman Catholic Uncle who felt that his life would be complete if he could go to Rome and be blessed by the Pope. He was a poor man, and twice in his life,he saved enough money to travel to Rome to seek this blessing. He brought jars of peanut butter with him because he could not afford to purchase food during his times in Rome. He did receive the Pope's blessing during his second trip. A few days before his death, I spoke with him. He had no assurance of eternal life, and no interest in placing faith in Christ as he hoped that his devotion to the Roman Catholic Church and reception of her sacraments would eventually bring him that peace. He left earth without that peace. How can we remain silent about the errors of the Pope and Rome?
