We love the souls of the Roman Catholic people; but we abhor popery, Romish rituals, and the Roman church's many ungodly, unbiblical doctrines. . . . While our position may seem fanatical and extreme in this apostate age, we are certainly in good company. Our "fanatical" position on the pope and his church was once the norm from one end of the Christian doctrinal spectrum to the other.

Now, this question—Are some Roman Catholics Christian?—is a crucial one. Once it is widely accepted by evangelicals, people, and pastors that one can be a Roman Catholic and a true Christian, a child of God, the papacy has its blood-stained foot firmly planted in the door of those churches, and the ecumenical error and pollution, the spiritual confusion and corruption, will only grow. And that is the case today with a great many evangelical pastors and their people.
The history, government, doctrine, and dogma of the Roman Catholic Church proves that the pope's church is not Christ's Church.

"There is a new ecumenism that’s being brought about by this [pro-life] movement. . . . It’s brought a lot of converts to the Catholic church too. A great number of pro-lifers have started out with, ah, with—in another faith have come over to the church and brought a lot of people into the churches." Veteran pro-life leader Joe Scheidler, Roman Catholic, addressing the Pro-Life 2000 Conference in Toronto, Canada
The Manhattan Declaration is an ungodly manifesto, contemptuous of the blood and righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ. It is an ecumenical treatise, complete with a Romish gospel and shot through and through with popish error. Those evangelicals who have authored this document and who have led the way in signing it show themselves to be in rebellion to God. It is, in their case, a brazen manifesto of treason against the Lord Jesus Christ.
As I write this, Pope John Paul II is near death. Once he draws his last breath, a Vatican official will lightly tap three times upon the deceased pontiff's forehead with a golden hammer and call his name. Upon receiving no reply, the cardinal chamberlain will remove John Paul's fisherman's ring and smash it.
Today, Tuesday, November 28, a coalition of pro-family/pro-life leaders issued a press release in response to Pastor Rick Warren's decision to have U.S. Senator Barack Obama speak at the Global Summit on AIDS being hosted in Warren's Saddleback Church. The very language of that document is a witness against those Protestants who have signed it.
Once again, 'tis the season. Centuries ago, without any mandate from the Scriptures and consequently no example from the apostolic church, the Roman Catholic Church instituted a "holy day" known as the Mass of Christ. Or do you say Christmas?
The leadership of the Roman Catholic Church has a stake in Reconquista. The pope and his henchmen are looking to turn America, founded and still a Protestant country, into a Roman Catholic country.
. . . If there is going to be a war between the hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church and the Obama administration, it will be a phoney war. The always politically expedient pope and his bishops cannot even bring themselves to deny the mass to the likes of Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi, or Vice President-Elect Joe Biden, let alone excommunicate them from the church! When it comes to the pope and his bishops, Mr. Obama has nothing to fear. In fact, Obama can thank the Vatican for helping to elect him to the presidency in the first place! And for all we know, he did just that when he made it a point to call Pope Benedict soon after his electoral victory. . . .
