I didn't realize that mainstream also meant correct with the Bible. Considering "they all wondered after the beast" I would have thought being
mainstream would be a negative (and synonymous with being deceived).
How about you present some SDA theology/doctrine that is not backed up by scripture and let's see how far you get! I am more than happy to defend my

Vicarius Filli Dei is inscribed on the Popes mitre!
The letters inscribed in the Pope's miter are these 'VICARIUS FILII DEI'. which is the Latin for 'VICAR OF THE SON OF GOD.' Catholics hold that
the church, which is a visible society, must have a visible head...., as head of the church, was given the title, 'VICAR OF CHRIST'." Our Sunday

Vicar of Christ . . . Title used almost exclusively of the Bishop of Rome as successor of Peter and, therefore, the one in the Church who
particularly takes the place of Christ; but used also of bishops in general and even of priests. First used by the Roman Synod of A.D. 495 to refer to

(1439) and Vatican Council I in Pastor Aerternus (1870). The Second Vatican Council, in Lumen Gentium , n.27, calls bishops in general "vicars and
legates of Christ." All bishops are vicars of Christ for their local churches in their ministerial functions as priest, prophet, and king, as the Pope
is for the universal church; the title further denotes they exercise their authority in the Church not by delegation from any other person, but from
