All that one has to do is to compare the teachings and practices of John Paul II with the Word of God, for these reveal him to have been the Antichrist for the duration of his pontificate, just as every pope is the Antichrist for the duration of each one’s pontificate. Let us do just that:
John Paul II was a man who opposed and exalted himself against the three Persons of the blessed Trinity! For he dared to call himself, and allowed his followers to call him, “the Holy Father”; which is what the Lord Jesus called His heavenly Father in Jn.17:11, and which only God the Father deserves to be called; for there is only “one God and Father of all” (Eph.4:6). And he dared to accept for himself such titles as “Christ on earth” (for this is what the popes have been called), among many similar titles, plus of course claiming to be “Head of the Church”, when the only true Head of the true Church is the Lord Christ (Eph.1:22). And also, he dared to call himself, and allowed his followers to call him, “the Vicar of Christ”; which means “the one who takes Christ’s place on earth”; and yet it is the Holy Spirit alone who took the place of Christ on earth (Jn.14:16,17,26).
The pope, Boniface VIII, stated categorically as far back as the early fourteenth century: “To be subject to the Roman Pontiff is to every human creature altogether necessary for salvation….I have the authority of the King of kings. I am all in all and above all, so that God himself and I, the vicar of God, have but one consistory, and I am able to do all that God can do. What, therefore, can you make of me but God?” (Papal Bull Unum Sanctum). During the Vatican Council in 1870, it was stated: “The pope is Christ in office, Christ in jurisdiction and power…we bow down before thy voice… as before the voice of Christ, the God of truth; in clinging to thee, we cling to Christ.” Pius IX said: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” Pope Pius X said: “The pope… is Jesus Christ Himself, hidden under the veil of flesh.” And the Roman Catholic theologian, Thomas Aquinas, whose works are so revered within Romanism, stated: “There is no difference between the pope and Jesus Christ.”
And many, many similar titles could be listed, which the popes of Rome have either given themselves, or been perfectly willing to receive from their followers.
John Paul II was a man who denied the one true God by worshipping a goddess! The name of this goddess is Mary. Of course, this goddess is not, in truth, Mary the mother of the Lord, that humble servant of Christ; it is in fact nothing less than the ancient Mother-Goddess of Babylonian heathenism, renamed “Mary” and worshipped with all the zeal and blind devotion with which heathen people worldwide have worshipped the Mother-Goddess in all her different forms, in so many religions of the world. Deny it as much as they will, but the reality is that Papists worship this “Mary” with more zeal, devotion, enthusiasm, and love than any other deity within the Roman Catholic religion (and there are many: “saints”, angels, the wafer-god of the mass, innumerable idols, etc.). And John Paul II deeply loved this goddess called “Mary”, he prayed to her, sang hymns to her, exalted her at every opportunity, devoted himself fully to her, even credited her with saving his life when an assassination attempt was made on him.
John Paul II was a man who called a piece of bread “Christ”, and worshipped it as such! For in the blasphemy of the mass, he claimed to have the power to call down Christ, the Son of God now seated at the right hand of the Majesty on high, and turn him into a piece of bread and a cup of wine! For it is the doctrine of Roman Catholicism that the wafer used in the mass is transubstantiated into the literal body of Christ, and the wine in the cup is transubstantiated into the literal blood of Christ; so that when Papists partake of these things, they are not eating bread and drinking wine, they are in fact eating and drinking Christ Himself, literally and physically! This is the false “christ” which John Paul II worshipped! Yet this is the man who will now be praised the world over as a true Christian, a follower of the true Christ of God!
And moreover, this was a man who prayed to and worshipped heathen images! Idols of silver and gold, the work of men’s hands, which have mouths but cannot speak, eyes which cannot see, ears which cannot hear, noses which cannot smell, hands which cannot handle, feet which cannot walk (see Psa.115:3-8). These were John Paul II’s gods!
