In my opinion, if you talk to relatives, co workers, neighbors, etc., and mention to them that the Popes of Rome have, for centuries, claimed divinity, you may receive one of two replies:
1. No they haven’t, that’s conspiracy theory.
2. Show me the proof.
I have outlined some proof on my YouTube Channel, one of which is a recent video. If you research catechism quotes and Papal quotes alike, you will have proof.
In the book of Daniel the prophet, the Lord spoke of the Papacy exalting themselves above God and ruling on earth as if they were God. The Papal reign is Antichrist and utters blasphemies against God constantly.
Conspiracy theory? No. Fact? Yes!
