DID YOU KNOW NAPOLEON TOOK THE POPE HOSTAGE??

Postby branham1965 » Wed Oct 04, 2017 6:58 am

I was shocked :shocked!: :shocked!: to find out that Napoleon took the Pope hostage.


And by this proved that the Papacy was not a world power anymore.

Interesting...

Especially the conclusion that the Papacy isn't a world power, anymore. Yet, the Papacy still influences things as seemingly unimportant as how the wives of foreign leaders dress. Not all have the privilege of the white. And, there's a reason that heads of state visit with the Pope, regularly.

Claiming that the Pope being captured by Napoleon means that the Papacy isn't a world power, anymore, is a lot like saying that the Jews arrest of Christ proves He isn't God. It's faulty logic.

My post was not well done. I should have quoted other sources .


In those days late 1700's and 1800's things were changed regarding the Pope.

I did not explain it well at all.

And yes in modern times they are powerful.I like the present Pope actually.

To some, that's like saying that you like the Anti-Christ.

People have their opinions about other people.

ALMIGHTY GOD sees the whole picture.NOTHING is hid from the sight of Him with whom we have to do.

JESUS says not to fear men but to fear God.Luke 12.

JESUS says not to fear men but to fear God.Luke 12.

Sometimes folks mistakenly believe that they are only dealing with a mere man, when they are actually dealing with God (Acts 5:1-11).

Of course I can elaborate, Billy.

Do you really think that it is possible that I'm referring to myself?
