THE CONFUSION OF THE POPES
The Roman Catholic church
claims it has an "Unbroken List of Popes from Peter to Today."
It calls this List "the Title Deed of the Roman Catholic
It either has a Title Deed or it does not. Either there is an Unbroken
Line or there is not. If not, the Roman Catholic Church falls apart, and
is proven to be a false church, from which every member should be
converted and put his faith only in Jesus Christ as all-sufficient
Saviour and Lord.
The fact is, there is no such thing as an "unbroken line!" No
Title company in the world would insure the title of the Roman Catholic
Church. It is hopelessly confused. Four official Roman Catholic books
give four different "Title Deeds!" They don't know if the
actual number of the so -called popes is 258, 261, 262, or less.
In 1947, the Vatican made changes regarding 74 popes. It removed
"the little man who never was." Poor "pope" Donus had
been listed as a pope in 973. But in 1947 the Vatican dropped him from
its "unbroken line" - its glorious "Title Deed." Why?
Because they found he had never even existed! In addition, the Vatican
dropped six "popes," and removed the "sainthood" of
How can this be, since the Roman Catholic Church claims that saints are
made by God in heaven? Ask your priest. Better still, bring him to
THE CONVERSION CENTER, and let us ask him these and other
questions in your presence.
The following are three Roman Catholic approved publications, with
information showing how utterly confused they are concerning this
so-called "Title Deed." -

A Jan. 18, 1947 news report from the Vatican states that "Pope
Donus" was found to be "a person who never existed!" In
addition, designation of sainthood was removed from Felix II, Liberius,
Anastasio, Stephen III, Stephen V! And poor, deluded, unsuspecting Roman
Catholic people had been praying to these non-existent "saints"
for centruies with the official approval of the same Roman Catholic
Church that now says it was all a mistake! What a horrible

WE INVITE ALL ROMAN CATHOLICS TO TURN FROM THIS HOPELESS CONFUSION AND
COME T THE TRUE ROCK THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, AND HIM ALONE! If the
Apostle Peter were alive, today, he would be the first to invite you to
leave this pagan system that has deceived so many because it contains a
mixture of Christianity.
Peter would tell you that Christ is the Rock (I Peter 2:7-8)....(Acts
4:8-12). He would tell you that Matthew 16:18 refers to Christ Himself
(Matt. 16:16; I Cor 10:4) as the Rock upon which the Church is built.
Peter is but a stone in the Church of Christ, as are all born again
Christians (I Peter 1:23; 2:5). All Christians are given the Scriptures
(keys) to to declare the remission of sins by faith in Jesus Christ
(Matt. 16:19, Matt 18:18; Luke 24:45-47; Acts 10:43). COME GIVE YOUR
HEART TO CHRIST TODAY!
