The Pope hold religious power over any monarchs/heads/leaders of other countries who are Catholic. He is also the Sovereign of the Vatican City and as such, is on an equal footing with any other world leader or monarch who is not Catholic, such as Queen Elizabeth II, the President of the US, etc.

The Vatican is fabulously wealthy in money, buildings, ancient books and treasures, donations, etc., and does not have to pay priests or nuns, who taken vows of celibacy, poverty, etc. very much, so there is no major financial outlay in their staffing payroll, which means the wealth accumulates fairly quickly.

In the event of a major call to arms in a religious war, who would almost automatically be considered to be the best person to lead - out of all the world's leaders - but the Pope.

That time is coming... Satan has given the Beast from the Sea [aka the Antichrist], Revelation 13:2 'And the beast [aka a monster] which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon [aka Satan] gave him his power, and his throne, and great authority'.

Could psychiatry and the pharmaceutical industry (the part which makes mind affecting drugs) also be considered part of Christianity? Because many institutions claim to be Christian, or are founded on Christian ideals. It might seem contradictory because psychiatry is associated with science but there is as much science in for example schizophrenia as there is in possession. The Church doesn't want ordinary people to say they see spirits because only the Church may make statements about that and it might become a threat to their power so they have psychiatry to take care of such individuals.

Oh yes, it could! Especially if they're Catholics?

The Catholic Church would do ANYTHING, even covering up pedophilia, to protect their power over money, positions of influence, and mankind.
