Pope - Other Christians Not True Churches?

Do you think the Pope knows what he is talking about? He sure didn't get that from God's word, the Bible. But, of course, there are a lot of practices and traditions in the Catholic church which definitely does not come from the Word of God.

This is no surprise to me, since I have heard missionaries tell of the persecution they receive in other countries who are heavily Catholic even today; and we know how many were put to death back in history as they attempted to purge the "heretics," who were the true Bible believers who made up the church, from the earth. Of course, they also believe that they were responsible for preserving the Bible; but again, we know they now "trust" in a corrupted translation of God's Word. Many Catholics aren't aware of this, however, since they are taught to trust in the priests and their teachings.... the Word of God is not for the common man.

Luke 21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

2 Tim. 3:12-17 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
