VCY America - A Look Back at the Pope's Visit to America
Host: Jim Schneider. Guest: Mike Gendron
From Time-Warner Cable's Papal Visit Channel to the throngs of people who waited hours on end just to catch a glimpse of him, over the past several days we've seen just how messiah-like the reception has been toward Pope Francis.
Just because Pope Francis represents a religion of approximately 1.2 billion people around the world, does that justify the kind of reception he received and the titles he claims such as Holy Father and Vicar of Christ?
Joining Jim to look at these and other questions was Mike Gendron. For over 30 years Mike was a devout Roman Catholic and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church. He followed the priests, the sacraments and was depending upon his own good works for salvation. However in 1981 after attending an apologetics seminar called, 'Evidence for the Christian Faith' the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. As he searched the Scriptures he was amazed to see how often the Bible contradicts the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. Mike placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior and the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. He founded a ministry, 'Proclaiming the Gospel' that points people to Jesus Christ as the all-sufficient Savior.
