  1. Hi mate, good to hear from you once again! But to lead with this story, of the Jesuit pope, who “does things his way”, ugh… Talk about “private judgment”! Biblically & theologically, this guy is a nightmare! But then, I am Reformational & Reformed! (But ya knew that! 😉 ) Best blessings for you and your this Christmas!

    PS…I am thinking that this pope just might be the last! Who knows? The Church, the whole Church.. is always standing before the Eschatological-End! But we could just be that generation that will see the greatest End!? (With Modern Israel right in our face, note, Zech. 13: 8-9 with chapter 14!) Btw see too, the Association of Hebrew Catholics, they too are seeing this time of great Gentile Apostasy, and perhaps the near Coming of Christ! Come Lord Jesus!

    1. Btw congrats mate on some of your theological studies and achievements! You know I love good biblical and theological study! I will always be grateful for my first degree, a BA in philosophy from a Roman Catholic college. 🙂 (I am always critical in these areas however. We must be, to be honest and truth seekers! Always the perpetual student, I am! 🙂

      1. Sorry, but this guy is another mess! See my wee blog statement on Conservatism! Yes, its time to speak for truth, as any pastor-teacher understands it, especially a conservative one! I am nothing, but the Word & Revelation of God In Christ is everything! 🙂
