GUARATINGUETA, Brazil (AP) ‚ÄĒ Drug traffickers will face divine justice for the scourge of illegal narcotics across Latin America that destroys lives amid seemingly endless drug-related violence, Pope Benedict XVI said Saturday.
"God will call you to account for your deeds," he warned the dealers to cheers from recovering addicts at a rural treatment center founded by a Franciscan friar.
Brazil and the rest of Latin America face dangerously high rates of drug abuse and traffickers must "reflect on the grave harm they are inflicting on countless young people and on adults from every level of society," Benedict said....

Because he never rejected the Catholic Church, John

A fun video from the BBC. ūüĎć I find most BBC videos play on my Android stuff.
John Yurich, I agree with Romans 10:9,10 John. You should confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord. When do you do that John? You don't. Don't tell us that you do that on internet forums when there are about 2 people on here who are RC's and you write to them a bunch of bologna. You do not confess Christ, but say that you are too afraid because you are just shy to say anything in your church. Then my friend, you don't confess Christ and that is the flip-side to the other part of Romans 10:9,10--believe in your heart. If you really believed in your heart that Jesus is Lord, you would be changed and you really would confess Him. That's why you stay in a false gospel and proclaim a false gospel about praying to ask Jesus into your heart, when that is not what Romans 10:9,10 teach.
Also, that reminds me of something that Martin Luther (that guy you like to quote) stated: "If someone doesn't sing or talk about Christ, it's the real proof that they really don't believe." (I paraphrased as I don't have the quote in front of me.) Perfect love for our Savior casteth out fear. (That does apply to me too.)
Romans 10:9-10 states how to get saved and that is exactly how Baptist ministers preach on how to get saved and that is exactly how I, my brother and my friend who is a Baptist got saved. And you call what it states in Romans 10:9-10 a false gospel?
Read the Bible John. Where do you find that one time in the NT preached by the Lord Jesus Christ or the Apostles? It's simply not there. Are you really ready to base your eternal destiny on what you saw some preachers tell you on TV? And really, who do you think you are witnessing to on this site? You are probably confusing a whole lot more people than you ever think you are helping. That's why your false gospel is so dangerous.
I am not hate filled. Maybe I should have utilized a better word then moron in describing RC's and others who think that all RC's believe all RCC doctrine. And why do you state that I am spreading a false gospel? The Gospel that I am spreading is the Gospel that I learned from watching Baptist ministers on television and from listening to my Baptist friend which is that the way to get saved is by praying to Christ and ask Him to become ones Savior. That is what my Baptist friend preaches about how to get saved.
Only a "moron" would think that John? Wow, how can you be so hate-filled? My my my. I don't think I've ever corresponded on this forum with anyone so hate-filled as you. My my my. BTW, you are certainly getting your message out to RC's on this basically reformed website. Way to witness Johnnny Y. It might not be so bad if you really gave the gospel instead of your false gospel.
Why do you assume that John Paul II died an unsaved person? Nobody but Christ knows is John Paul II did or did not receive Christ as his Savior on his death bed. I will not be rebuked at the Bema Seat judgement because I have not saved myself while not trying to save others. I am trying to save others by informing others on discussion forums that they must receive Christ as their Savior in order to gain entrance into Heaven. And I am not misleading others by cotinuing to attend the RCC because only a moron would assume that everybody who attends the RCC believes all RCC doctrines.
John, there is another thing that I should have mentioned. Let's say that Pope John Paul II had a change of heart while he was dying, and wasn't able to physically express that change of heart. Let's say this was a sincere change of heart from going from Catholic to Christian. This may very well have saved him. --BUT-- no one else knew it. This means at the Bema Seat judgement he would be sorely rebuked for saving himself and not trying to save others. Because as now as everyone assumes, he died as an unsaved person supporting the counterfeit church, The Roman Catholic one. He would have done on a very large scale, which I keep warning you about, by his physical presence and of course very active participation in the Roman Catholic Church has helped lead many down the broad road of destruction.
So, not only should a person who has accepted Christ come out the Roman Catholic Church for his own benefit, he also will stop misleading others by his presence that the Roman Catholic Church is not ersatz one.
Rather simple, John, did he refuse extreme unction?
"If any man shall affirm that the rite and practice of Extreme Unction, as observed by the Holy Roman Church, is repugnant to the doctrine of the Apostle James, and that it may therefore be altered or despised without sin; let him be accursed." or in other words, he declares himself to be a Christian. q.v.,
How do you know for certain that John Paul II did not receive Christ as his Savior on his death bed? Are you able to see into the heart of anybody like Chirst can to tell who has and has not received Christ as their Savior? Only Chirst knows if John Paul II did or did not receive Christ as his Savior before passing away.
Lance, I never saw that John Paul II repented of his Catholic heresies? If you believe in works as part of salvation, you are not a Christian, If you are not a Christian in this Church age, you are condemned to hell. This is not me it is just biblical.
Christians and Catholics never together!
Romans 11 6 And if by grace, then [is it] no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if [it be] of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.
Oh, bother, the Illuminati, again. By the way, the Taliban never shut down the drug dealing just as the Communist thugs in Bolivia don't shut down the cocaine growing in their areas of control, but profit from it. Too bad one has to go to an apparent atheist for the truth about such stuff,
If you want to look for conspiracies just look at the Catholic Church.
His Unholiness should take his own advice, his predecessor is already roasting in its fires for the following ideas,
Benedict XVI is totally correct that the drug dealers will have to give an account to Christ when they stand before Him after they pass away. And unless they received Christ as their Savior before they pass away then they will be spending eternity in Hell. But unless Benedict XVI receives Christ as his Savior before passing away then Benedict XVI will be spending eternity in Hell.
