Catholicism says that the Pope’s teachings
are equal to the teachings of Christ

Pope says salvation is possible without Christ,
Jesus says apart from me you can do nothing!

“Those also can attain to salvation, who through no fault of their own, do not know the Gospel of Christ, yet sincerely seek God and moved by grace strive by their deeds to do His will as it is known to them…” – Vatican II

John 15:5 NLT

Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.

Pope says salvation starts with Mary,
Jesus says salvation is through me alone!

“Mary, the Mother of God…is united with indissoluble bonds to the saving work of her Son…because after her assumption into heaven she has not set aside this saving function, but continues to obtain for us, with her multiple intercession, the gifts relative to eternal salvation.” – Vatican II

John 14:6 NLT

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me. to be held by the whole Church.”

Pope says there’s really no Hell,
Jesus says that’s why I died!

“They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.” – Pope Francis, 3/28/18 La Repubblica

“Eternal damnation remains a possibility, but we are not granted the knowledge of whether or which human beings are effectively involved in it.” – Pope John Paul II, July 28, 1999

John 3:16-19 NLT

For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.

Matthew 13:40-42 NLT

Just as the weeds are sorted out and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of the world. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will remove from his Kingdom everything that causes sin and all who do evil. And the angels will throw them into the fiery furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
