The Pope and the Church are so far removed from what Christ taught. Christ's primary teachings were about the individual, about how we, as INDIVIDUALS, are powerful, about how we can do what he did and more - what did Christ do? He healed the sick in mind and body, he walked on water, he raised the dead, he changed water into wine, he had so much faith in the God within that he could do anything his heart desired. Christ was, and still is, an example of who we are, who we can be and who we should be striving to become. This is what the Pope and Church should be talking about because once we learn and understand that "the Kingdom of Heaven is within US," all that other stuff that the Pope is talking about and insinuating will fall into place. I was raised Catholic but do not follow the church, I follow Christ.
