Always fun to read...
are David Cloud's Fundamental Baptist Information Service "news" articles. One of the most recent is Chuck Colson and Rome, in which Mr. Cloud complains about Chuck's view of Catholicism and the Pope. Referring to a positive statement by Colson about John Paul II, Cloud writes, "Colson's blindness is incredible. Only biblical prophecies of last-day apostasy can explain such blindness. The Pope of Rome, a defender of Christian orthodoxy! Why, everything he stands for uniquely as the Pope is contrary to the Bible."
('m really surprised that that last sentence wasn't concluded with an exclamation point.)
Yes, to say that John Paul II defends the core beliefs of Christianity is surely a sign of the end times.
