|The is Jesus Christ himself? and the same as God? Really?|

Well you can argue on that based on what think about the term but if the Pope is just a representative or not exactly like Christ. Then that would be your defense. For this fact proves what your saying is just your opinion to defend your faith.
On the question if the Catholics belief on whether or not the POPE is being portrayed as Christ representative or being made to be christ on earth can be put t rest dear. For your authorities ADMITTED on that belief long ago:
“THE POPE IS NOT ONLY THE REPRESENTATIVE OF JESUS CHRIST, HE IS JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF, hidden under the veil of flesh.” [Catholic National, July 1895]
So the Pope is not merely a REPRESENTATIVE but JESUS CHRIST HIMSELF… imagine that. Whatever you may argue dear Flewen. it is just a lame defense on your belief for your authorities even PUBLISHED the Catholic church STAND on this matter.
Your mentors even went a bit further in placing the Pope as a god. Imagine that.“We hold upon this earth the place of God Almighty” Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Letter of June 20, 1894
Father A. Pereira says: “It is quite certain that Popes have never approved or rejected this title ‘Lord God the Pope,’ for the passage in the gloss referred to appears in the edition of the Canon Law published in Rome in 1580 by Gregory XIII.”
Writers on the Canon Law say, “The Pope and God are the same, so he has all power in heaven and earth.” Barclay Cap. XXVII, p. 218. Cities Petrus Bertrandus, Pius V. – Cardinal Cusa supports his statement.
Imagine that the Pope and God are the SAME. Hindi naman ito katakataka dahil pinagPAUNA ng mga Apostol ang ukol sa TAONG MAKASALANAN na nagtatanyag sa kaniyang sarili na tulad sa Dios:
2 Tessalonica 2:3-4 “… NA SIYA’Y NAGTATANYAG SA KANIYANG SARILI NA TULAD SA DIOS.”
Wala pong layunin ang INC na manira kungdi IHAYAG ang KATOTOHANAN. At di upang makapanakit ng damdamin ninyo kungdi upang ipakita ang KATOTOHANAN na pinagPAUNA ng mga apostol.
You may not easily accept this truth. But it is clear. It is not the INC who said that about your Pope but your church authorities. They ATTEST to that TEACHING. And were found to be what the apostle EXACTLY forwarned about.
Mga taong MAKASALANAN. di po ba?
