LORENZAGO DI CADORE, Italy - Pope Benedict XVI has reasserted the universal primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, approving a document released Tuesday that says Orthodox churches were defective and that other Christian denominations were not true churches. Benedict approved a document from his old offices at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith that restates church teaching on relations with other Christians. It was the second time in a week the pope has corrected what he says are erroneous interpretations of the Second Vatican Council, the 1962-65 meetings that modernized the church.

The Pope has been going against the bible lately. First off he goes against the very word of God (The bible) by saying there is only one true church... if we go by Christ which I try and do the Church is The people, we are the body, take down the walls and floors, and ceilings just people, we are the church, religion merely seperates us from being true Christ Followers. The bible says John 3:16 For God so loved the world he gave his ONLY begotten son, for whomever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. This is only through his son that ANYONE can get to heaven if they just take a step of faith and believe. Pope Benedict also said recently that Evolution and Creationism can work together one to explain how and the other to explain why... Please.. this is just a political move to make both Christians and Evo's happy. Any true Christian who believes in Gods word (The Bible) knows that God put the breath of life into Adam, we were not some amoeba crawling out of a pool evolving into different things through accidental mutations, no our blood didn't turn from cold blood to warm, the missing link has not been found. THE TWO CANNOT GO TOGETHER, creationism is totally different from evolution theory. The Pope should not be so quickly to Judge, for he will be the one being Judged before our Lord.
