'Mystical': Pope says 'God told me' to quit

Former Pope Benedict XVI is now going public with more information about why he left the most powerful position in the Catholic Church, claiming he had a “mystical experience,” with God personally instructing him to step down.

“God told me to do it,” the 86-year-old ex-pontiff told a friend, as he broke his silence for the first time since becoming the first pope to leave office in 600 years.

Benedict indicated God had implanted in his heart the “absolute desire” to resign and to devote himself to a life of prayer and reflection, though he admits he didn’t personally see the Creator of the universe. ...

Ah, gentlemen who posted after my last comment.

Matthew 8
21 And another of the disciples said to Him, "Lord, permit me first to go and bury my father."
22 But Jesus said^ to him, "Follow Me; and allow the dead to bury their own dead."---NASB

Barnes Commentary wrote:
....
There [are] reasons for this apparently rash direction. One was to test the character and attachment of the man. If he had proper love for Christ, he would be willing to leave his friends even in the most tender and trying circumstances.. This is required, Mt 10:27, Lk 14:26.
It is the regular duty of children to obey their parents, and to show them kindness in affliction, and to evince proper care and respect for them when dead. Nor did our Saviour show himself insensible to these duties. He taught here, however, as he always taught, that a regard to friends, and ease, and comfit, should be subordinate to the gospel; and that we should always be ready to sacrifice these when duty to God requires it.

"Those who are saved grow in Christ. No growth means no life, and no life means that you are dead in trespasses and sins."

This is how I always see things. To be born again and to truly believe in Christ is to love Him. To truly love Christ is to pick up our cross, follow Him and do as He commands. The way I understand it is that good works are not required for salvation, but they are instead, the evidence of it. Witnessing and good works just come naturally and are an expected product of salvation. A product that a born again Christian just can't keep to themselves; in a happy way...

Let's clear this up.. ...
Actually my point still is you need to leave the Catholic church, but will address your question. With the rare exception of deathbed conversions, the Bible indicates that those who are saved grow in Christ and no growth means no life, and no life means you are still dead in trespasses and sins.

"In whom ALL the building fitly framed together GROWETH unto an holy temple in the Lord" Ephesians 2:21 (KJV)

Read the context, the whole building (church) grows, no growth, no life.

II Peter 2:20-22 Talks about those who make a profession but no change (can we say growth)takes place, and condemns those professions as false.

I John 1 and 2 say if we say we fellowship with God and walk (the manner of our life) in darkness or if we say we know Him and keep not His commandments then we are LIARS. (self-deceived)

So, while you are correct to say faith alone brings you into saving relationship with Christ, you also ignore that according to the Scriptures no growth is an indication of no grace. (Titus 2:11-14)

Hebrews 12:14 reminds us that without holiness no man shall see the Lord. The fact that it is a holiness that is pursued means it is not one that is imputed.

Why not stop attending

SteveR, people have said you are a Catholic? Is A Catholic Christian An Oxymoron? (PDF) (Yes) and Is the One True Church Roman Catholic? (PDF) (No) Needless to say you would not be one to come to to ask who a Christian is, if you're a Catholic.

But people can make up their own minds on Dispensations and for some reading material, A Short History Of Dispensationalism. They certainly don't have to depend on the pathetic Roman Catholic Authority (PDF) is a false source of on what Christianity is, even when one digs underneath it's superficially laughable surface.

1) Jesus told Nicodemus becoming Born Again(According to Baptist doctrine is to embrace Jesus as ones Savior) was the only requirement for gaining entrance into Heaven.

2) Romans 10:9 also gives the same only requirement for gaining entrance into Heaven.

1) Jhn 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

If you've not already entered the kingdom of God, you're not born again.

Luk 17:20-21 And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

2) Rom 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

If you are not already saved, the wrath of God abides on you still.

Jhn 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Stop being stiffnecked and accept biblical correction. Nothing you quoted establishes your claims

Can the Holy Ghost produce bad fruit? If JY is saved through Christ, then he can only produce good fruit unlike the wicked thorns that attempt choke HIS Elect
Exactly right, but don't let the Pope hear you talking like that or you'll end up eating wafers at home every Sunday.

Keep something in mind, JY said this below: "...Absolutely nothing else is required for gaining entrance into Heaven. Baptism, the Sacraments, church membership, fellowshipping and spiritual growth are all totally superfluous to gaining entrance into Heaven."

Our agreed point is that spiritual growth is inevitable because good trees bear good fruit. If someone goes his or her entire life (e.g. eighty years) without spiritual growth, then he or she has only a counterfeit faith... pretend. A lot of people claim to have faith in Christ, but their supposed faith isn't resulting in life transformation, meaning... they don't have faith in Christ at all.

No John Y., you bore me to tears, that for whatever reason, money, comfort, or whatever you won't become a Christian. No, you aren't one and with the syncretic practices that you have, you'll never become one. Do you see any place in the Bible that people who were suppose to become Christians remained in their pagan temple and ways? Of course not! If aid and abet the anti-Christian Church, Should Roman Catholicism really be classified as a Christian religion? -- No. (PDF) You have rejected Christ and are a hypocrite.

Hebrews 10
24 and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds,
25 not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more, as you see the day drawing near.
26 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,---NASB

John Y., you are no more Christian, than a Hindu, who has added Christ to his pantheon of gods.

You first have to cut all ties to the Roman Catholic Church and then find a Christian body to associate with.

Protestants are far more likely to preach a fire insurance gospel with the only sanctimonious growth being a 'amen pilgrim' here and a 'I love you brother' there.

JY, I urge you to meditate on your comment about spiritual growth. As born again Christians, it becomes a great desire to grow spiritually. If you have no desire to grow toward spiritual maturity, then pray earnestly that The Lord gives you this desire. I like to reference Matthew 7, beginning verse 16. Notice good fruits come from healthy trees. Also, seek Solomon's advice on knowledge in the first few chapters of the Proverbs. I hope these help.
