The Roman Catholic Church has a long history but was founded by the Roman Emperor that is today known by the name of Francis. The Pope is considered to be the leader of all the Roman Catholics all over the world. He is the spiritual head of all the priests and bishops, but he is also the president of Rome, which is ruled by him. The Pope travels to places to preach the gospel of the Holy Bible to many people, who are not Catholic Christians. When he visits other countries, he carries the sacred symbols of the cross that is engraved on the stone that stands at the location.
Some believe that the concept of popes came from the time when the historical Adam and Eve were made to live in the Garden of Eden as children of God. They were not allowed to eat from the tree because of what they had done, so they became cursed and thus began the idea of a Pope or religious leader. It is believed that the first Pope was among those being driven out of heaven by God in the book of Genesis.
The papacy is viewed as a high religious position that is above the church and everyone else, but this is not entirely true. The Pope is the head of a church and the Pope represents more than just one church. The papacy is a representative of many Christian denominations, even though there is only one true church that uses the papacy as its symbol. The Pope represents not just one church, but the teachings of Christianity as well as all the other gods that have made their mark on mankind.
One of the most important parts of the papacy is participating in the affairs of the church. The Pope travels around the world and gives conferences, makes official visits, travels around lecturing, and gives interviews to spread the word of God. Many people confuse the Pope with the Archangel Gabriel, because both are considered to be messengers between God and men. They are both seen as wearing white garments, both have authority to forgive sins, and both are associated with God. The differences between the Pope and the Archangel Gabriel become blurred when one considers that the Archangel Gabriel is considered to be a spiritual guide while the Pope is not.
Many people wrongly believe that the Pope is infallible and can speak with God directly. However, this is impossible under any circumstances. The Pope can only administer Vatican City and he can only speak with God through the Holy Father. To confuse the infallible with the merely nonexistent is an error common in Catholic belief. It is also commonly believed that the Papacy is infallible because of the many popes that have existed over the centuries.
Some people do not believe in the concept of a Papacy and consider them to be nothing more than a temporal government. This could not be further from the truth. The papacy is the center of the Christian faith and it is the governing body of the Church. Many millions of Christians throughout the world have lived their entire lives under the protection of the papacy. In fact, it is this papacy which is responsible for the teaching of the Bible in the schools, and it is the Pope who watches over the activities of all the Bishops throughout the world.
