Peter the Roman is elected
And once again they cry "Holy Father" to someone other than God...and with great bravado the cult of personality is resurrected anew in the Roman Catholic Church. The new Pope Francis was born and raised in Argentina by his Italian parents. As a solid son of the Church, he will continue to preach the required for salvation Roman Catholic (false) gospel of Jesus plus our own good works getting us to heaven:
The required for salvation Roman Catholic belief (error) that "faith plus works" are necessary to attain eternal life and that those who believe that faith alone in Christ and what he has done for us is what is essential are doomed to hell, unless they repent (same goes for all the rest of the following bullet points in this article). Also go to Catechism paragraphs (CC# 1821 and 2010) to see that the church still teaches this.. No matter that Christ himself tells us: He who hears my word and believes in the One who sent me, has everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation (hell): but has passed from death to life. (John 5:24). He who believes in me has everlasting life. (John 6:47) Yes, that is the same as "he who has faith" in me or "he who trusts me," will have everlasting life. But that was not good enough for the bishops at the Council of Trent, session six, as we read their "Decree on Justification”, canon 12: “If anyone says that the faith which justifies is nothing else but trust in the divine mercy (of God), which pardons sins because of Christ; or that it is that trust alone (faith alone) by which we are justified; let him be anathema (accursed, condemned to hell).” Also see several other decrees issued on Justification by the bishops at Trent.
The required for salvation Roman Catholic belief (error) that the pope is supreme over all Christianity on earth, also that he speaks infallibly—without the possibility of error—when he offers a teaching on matters of faith, morals, discipline, etc… (See the text from the First Vatican Council, which apparently overlooked Christ's statement about himself, just prior to his ascension, that "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me (Christ)." Matthew 28:18) Also see, Col. 1:18, Eph. 1:22, 4:15 and 5:23 and Roman Catholic Catechism (CC #889-891)
