Connections Between Islam and Christianity

How is Catholicism similar to Shia Islam?

The Secret that Unites Two Major Religions

The Catholic faith is the largest Christian denomination in the modern world, with over a billion adherents faithfully following a single religious and political authority: The Pope. Seated on the golden throne of the church, he is believed to be the divinely appointed authority on Earth. He hails from a long line of successors tracing back to the apostles of Jesus Christ. But is the Pope’s authority really from God? Is he truly God’s representative on Earth? Or does he wear a veil of fake sanctity – a wolf in sheep’s clothing? The Catholic Church is notoriously shrouded in secrecy and conspiracies from satanic worship and child abuse to the mysteries revealed in Dan Brown’s DaVinci code – the Holy Grail and bloodline of Jesus Christ.

But the truth is, Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (fhip) has revealed that the Vatican was hiding a great secret that would shake the foundations of Christianity forever. A secret that, if revealed, would have the power to unite the two largest religions in the world – Christianity and Islam.

the Roman Catholic Church

Today, over 2 billion people worldwide call themselves Christians, followers of Jesus Christ. But the Christians are a nation divided. The world has tens of thousands of different Christian confessions. They all believe in something different and each group truly believes they are upon the truth. But what did Jesus want? Within the verses of the Bible, Jesus called for his true nation to be one. 

“I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one.”

– Holy Bible: John 17:11

And he called for his followers to be one flock, united under one shepherd. 

“I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.” 

– Holy Bible: John 10:16 

There is only one branch of Christianity which fulfils this command today. It is the only Christian faith united under one shepherd, one vicar with the keys to the kingdom. It is the oldest denomination in the world — the Roman Catholic Church. 

Catholicism, cloaked in mysterious symbols and ritual practices, claims to be the only religion founded by Jesus Christ. But is that true? Could the Catholic Church’s customs be rooted in the true teachings of Jesus Christ? Or has Catholicism been corrupted by falsehood and fallacies? 

Let’s take a look at the doctrine of the Roman Catholic Church. We will take a look at the commands of Jesus Christ, in his own words, and we will explore the common thread which unites all people who recognise Jesus as a divine authority on Earth. We will uncover the truth about Jesus and his divine successor.

HOW DID CHRISTIANITY BEGIN?

It may seem hard to imagine, given the massive number of Christians today, but Christianity started as a small movement. The first followers of Jesus simply called themselves “The way” – a title, reflecting the disciples’ belief that Jesus was “The Way” to God the Father. As Jesus said in the Gospel of John: 

“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” 

– Holy Bible: John 14:6

In other words, Jesus was God’s divine representative on Earth. In keeping with this tradition, he named another man as the successor to his ministry.

Holy Catholic AND Apostolic Church

It is well known and documented in the verses of the Bible that Jesus named one of his twelve disciples, Simon Peter, as the heir to his call. In the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus said:

 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

– Holy Bible: Matthew: 16:17-19

Also bear in mind that Jesus once said:

 “By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.”

– Holy Bible: John 5:30

So Peter’s role was the will of God the Father. Jesus gave Peter the authority to lead and the church that Peter built, is what we know today as the Roman Catholic Church. As we said, Jesus called for his followers to be “one”. This sentiment is also reflected in the word “Catholic,” a Latin term meaning “universal” – The universal church. 

These are both from the four marks or core beliefs, as laid out in the Catholic creed, which declares:

“I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic church”. 

– The Nicene Creed

The word “apostolic” is a nod to Peter. Since the time of the apostle Peter, an unbroken chain of successors — men supposedly chosen by God — have led the Catholic Church, one after another, acting as the Bishop of Rome, the Pope. Catholics call this tradition “Apostolic Succession”. Some have belittled this system, calling it a Catholic innovation, but the concept of divinely appointed leadership has always been a divine mandate. It is God’s system. And it is an important commonality, connecting Catholicism to other religions of the book.

THE SUCCESSOR

Throughout the Old and New Testaments, there are many verses, in which God’s vicegerents, the prophets and messengers, name their successors, just as Jesus named Peter. For example, Moses designated his successor, Joshua son of Nun. 

So the Lord said to Moses, “Take Joshua son of Nun, a man in whom is the spirit of leadership, and lay your hand on him. Have him stand before Eleazar the priest and the entire assembly and commission him in their presence. Give him some of your authority so the whole Israelite community will obey him.

– Holy Bible: Numbers 27:18-20

And Kind David named his successor, his son Solomon:

“When David’s time to die drew near, he charged his son Solomon, saying: “I am about to go the way of all the earth. Be strong, be courageous, and keep the charge of the Lord your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his ordinances, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, so that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn. Then the Lord will establish his word that he spoke concerning me: “If your heirs take heed to their way, to walk before me in faithfulness with all their heart and with all their soul, there shall not fail you a successor on the throne of Israel.”

– Holy Bible: 1 Kings 2:1-4

The concept exists not only in Judaism and Christianity but also in Islam. Just like the Christian faith – Islam is split into numerous sects but the main division exists between the Sunni and Shia Muslims, who differ on the point of successorship. Like Catholics, the Shia hold tight to the importance of a leader chosen by God. While he was alive, Prophet Muhammad revealed the identity of the man who God had chosen to lead the nation after him: His cousin Ali ibn Abi Talib (pbuh).

“Ali is from me and I am from him and he is the Master of every believer after me.”

– Bihar Al-Anwar, Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi, v.31, p.655, hadith 199

But after the death of the Prophet, the majority of Muslims rejected Ali ibn Abi Talib as the chosen successor; splintering the Muslim nation into those who followed Imam Ali – and those who rejected the Wali or “guardian” which God chose. Shia Muslims believe that Ali was the first in a chain of divinely appointed successors, called the Imams. 

The Shia believe the Imam is their “Wali”, a word which can be translated to mean, “custodian” or “guardian”, or “father”.

THE PAPA 

The head of the Catholic Church is called the Pope, coming from the Latin word “papa” which means “father”. In other words, the Pope to a Catholic is exactly what an Imam is to a Shia Muslim. The word “Imam” means “leader”, “chief”, and “guide”. 

Don’t these words also describe the role of the Catholic Pope? 

And both groups believe their leader is not an ordinary man. Infallibility Catholics believe in something called “Papal infallibility” which means the Pope, acting as the supreme teacher, under certain conditions, cannot make a mistake. It’s based on the promise of Jesus, entrusting his successor Peter with the “keys of the kingdom of heaven”. This promise seats Peter “on the throne of Jesus” or “ex-cathedra” in Latin.

According to Roman Catholic doctrine, a Pope speaking “ex-cathedra” is infallible, by the power of the Holy Spirit. 

Throughout history, Pontiffs have spoken about papal infallibility. Pope Boniface VIII said: “We declare, affirm, define and pronounce it to be necessary to salvation for every human creature to be subject to the Roman pontiff.” Boniface VIII, Unum Sanctum. And Pope Pious IX declared: 

“I, alone, despite my unworthiness am the successor of the apostles, the Vicar of Jesus Christ. I alone have the mission to guide and direct the bar of Peter. I’m the way the truth and the life. They who are with me are with the Church. They who are not with me are out of the church.” 

 Pope Pius IX

Like the Catholics, Shia Muslims also believe that their God-given leaders are infallible. In the Quran, God said: 

“O believers! Obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you.”

– Holy Quran, An-Nisa verse 59

According to narrations, when asked about this verse, 

From Jaber Al-Jo’fy that Jaber ibn Abdullah asked the Prophet of Allah (pbuhahf) regarding the verse: {O you who have believed, obey Allah and obey the Messenger and those in authority among you..} (Holy Quran, Al-Nisa’ verse 59) saying: “O Messenger of Allah, we knew Allah and his Messenger, so who are those in authority whom Allah conjoined their obedience with your obedience?” He (pbuhahf) said: They are my Caliphs O Jaber, and the Imams of the Muslims after me, the first of them Ali ibn Abi Talib, then Al-Hassan, then Al-Hussain…”

– Bihar Al-Anwar, Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi, 3rd ed., v.36, p.250, hadith 67

Sunni Muslims, unlike the Shia, have never held tight to the idea of a divinely appointed guide. They simply rely on their holy book – the Quran, the tradition of the prophet, and advice from self-appointed guides – the fallible scholars and sheikhs. Much like the Protestants, who only have their holy book – the Bible, and guidance from their pastors and preachers. But it didn’t start like that. Each Christian denomination can trace its origins back to Catholicism. They broke off over time, often due to disputes over matters of jurisprudence. Division Protestantism originated in Europe in the 16th century. Its name comes from the “protest” which caused the sect to split from the Roman Catholic Church. Different groups broke away, following figures like Martin Luther and John Calvin. Many new denominations were born, like the Church of England. Back in the 17th century, King Henry VIII wanted to marry a woman named Anne Boleyn. The only problem? He was already married. 

He wanted to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, who failed to give him a male heir. However, divorce was not allowed under the religious law of the Roman Catholic Church. This long and twisted tale ended with Henry breaking away from the jurisdiction of the Pope, and founding a new church – the Church of England, appointing himself as its Supreme leader. But unlike the Pope, the King was considered powerful, not infallible. Both the Catholics and the Shia share the belief that there must be an infallible guide from God. And it makes sense, logically. Otherwise, God’s purpose in appointing an Imam for guidance would not be fulfilled.

The Imam is meant to be the living, breathing, embodiment of the religion. He can change the religious law, the jurisprudence, what is called the “sharia” in Arabic, to suit the culture of the time.

THE LAWMAKER

Every given point in history is unique; with its circumstances, social traditions, new technologies and systems. Think about how different the world is today, as compared to the time of Jesus. Now imagine trying to live in this modern world, using only antiquated laws. It defies logic to think that God, the all-knowing, would not place someone in the world, at every point in time, to adjust the laws. 

The Shia faith is based on the necessity of an Imam, a divine guide, at all times. The sixth Shia Imam, Ja’far Al-Sadiq (pbuh) said:

Imam Al-Sadiq (pbuh) said: “Verily the earth cannot exist without a “Hujjah” (a vicegerent of God). In fact, mankind can only be rectified through him, and the earth can only prosper through him.”

– Basa’er Al-Darajat, Muhammad ibn Al-Hassan Al-Safaar, 1st ed., Al-Ahmadi pub., p.506, hadith 9

– Bihar Al-Anwar, Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi, 3rd ed., v.23, p.51, hadith 101

The Imams, in the Shia faith, are the ones who say what is halal or permissible, and what is haram or forbidden. The Catholic Pope has the same ability. If you look at some of the Catholic Church’s practices today, they are rooted in old traditions, many of which are strikingly similar to Islamic jurisprudence, for example, the religious tax. 

The Catechism of the Catholic Church says, 

“The Christian faithful are obliged to assist with the needs of the Church, so that the Church has what is necessary for divine worship for apostolic works and works of charity end for the decent sustenance of ministers.”

– Code of Canon Law, Book 2, Part 1, Title 1, Can. 222

Traditionally the donation has always been 10%, based on the story of Abraham in the book of Genesis. The religious tax of 10% is called a “tithe,” coming from the Anglo Saxon word “teotha” meaning “a tenth.” Similarly, Muslims are required to give 20% of their income as a religious tax called “khums” which means “one fifth”. 

Another old tradition is the use of modest dress. Catholic Nuns wear a uniform of modesty called a habit, an outfit which looks a lot like the Islamic hijab, worn by many Muslim women.

This tradition is based on the words of the so-called apostle Paul in the New Testament of the Bible, who said: 

“But every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head—it is the same as having her head shaved. For if a woman does not cover her head, she might as well have her hair cut off; but if it is a disgrace for a woman to have her hair cut off or her head shaved, then she should cover her head.” 

– Holy Bible: 1 Corinthians 11:5-6 

But these old traditions are not written in stone. Every religious rule is subject to change. And this is because the Pope is the lawmaker. 

When Jesus consecrated Peter, he said: 

“I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

– Holy Bible: Matthew 16:19

EXAMPLES OF THE POPE CHANGING THE LAW

Throughout history, the Pope has been changing the law. Up until the 11th century, it was permitted for priests to marry. Then, due to certain abuses that were taking place, Pope Gregory VII decreed that priests were no longer permitted to marry.

 We still see the Pope using his powers to change the religious law in the world today. In a 2013 interview, the current Pope – Pope Francis said: “The church sometimes has locked itself up in small things, in small-minded rules,” And he, in his capacity as Pope, is changing those rules, modernising the church in the process. Pope Francis has publicly stated brand new stances on a variety of issues, such as changing the orthodox stance on homosexuality.

In 2015, Pope Francis made another controversial change to Catholic jurisprudence. He made headlines by granting priests the ability to forgive people for committing the “sin of abortion”, an ability he used to have exclusively as the Pope. As the highest divine authority on Earth, the Pope oversees the absolution of sins. 

Absolution is an integral part of Penance, one of the holy sacraments of Catholicism. It’s an important principle within the Shia faith as well. It is written in the Quran,

“None will have the right to intercede, except those who have taken a covenant from the Most Compassionate.”

– Holy Quran, Maryam verse 87

In other words, his vicegerents. 

Another authority given to the Imams, in the Shia faith, is the ability to call for holy war. In Arabic, the word for holy war is “jihad”. While the misguided actions of some have tarnished this word with a negative connotation, its meaning is multifaceted. Prophet Muhammad stressed that the most important holy war is spiritual, rather than physical. He said:

Imam Ali (pbuh) narrated that the Messenger of Allah (pbuhahf) said (to men returning from a battle): “Welcome back to those who have completed the ‘Minor Jihad’ and remains for them the ‘Greater Jihad’. So he was asked: O Messenger of Allah, what is the ‘Greater Jihad’? He said: Jihad Al-Nafs (Battle of the self/the ego). Then he (pbuhahf) said: The best of Jihad, the one whom battles his ‘self’, that is between his sides.”

– Ma’ani Al-Akhbar, Muhammad ibn Ali Babawayh ‘Al-Sadooq’, 2nd ed., p.160, hadith 1

– Bihar Al-Anwar, Muhammad Baqir Al-Majlisi, 3rd ed., v.67, p.65, hadith 7

In addition to this inner holy war, there is also an outer holy war, but this type of jihad can be ordered only by the infallible Imam

But Jihad is not a concept exclusive to Islam. It exists in Catholicism as well. 

The Pope also can call for holy war and it has happened, quite famously in Christian history. We see it in the headlines today. 

This has happened before on a massive scale. In the 11th century, Pope Urban II declared a holy war, what is known in history as the first crusade. And it was no small fight. An estimated 90,000 men, women and children of all classes were persuaded to participate in the first crusade, a fight waged for reasons of religious protection. The crusades were a series of military campaigns organised by Christian powers to retake Jerusalem and the so-called Holy Land back from Muslim control. And between 1095 and 1291 CE, a total of eight holy wars were ordered by the Papacy. Some may argue that the space between Jesus’ command to “love your enemies” to the idea of a Holy War is a giant leap. But the truth is, it’s a part of God’s system. 

Holy wars were divinely commanded in the Torah and the old testament of the Bible as well. 

Think about Joshua bin Nun and the siege of Jericho. The reason for this is that God’s representative is the complete religious and political authority. The two cannot be separated. And complete allegiance and submission to him is required. 

It is one of the foundations of Catholicism that loyalty to the Pope supersedes loyalty to any nation. The first Pope, Peter, in the Acts of the Apostles, wrote,

“Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!”

– Holy Bible: Acts 5:29

And this is how Catholicism has operated throughout history. In the 14th century, Pope Boniface VIII wrote: 

“That there is only One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church we are compelled by faith to believe and hold, and we firmly believe in her and sincerely confess her, outside of whom there is neither salvation, nor remission of sins…Furthermore we declare, state and define that it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of all human beings that they submit to the Roman Pontiff.” 

– Pope Boniface VIII, Unam Sanctam (November 18, 1302 AD)

The Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, a religious order of the Catholic Church, takes four vows – the ultimate being a vow of complete loyalty to the Pontiff. 

“As members of a religious order, Jesuits take three vows — of poverty, chastity and obedience — and a fourth vow of obedience specifically in regard to worldwide mission. In other words, Jesuits must be ready to accept whatever mission the Pope requires, a vow that is reflective of our broader dedication to the universal Church, and to the greater good of all people from all faiths and cultures.”

Catholics recite a creed and go through a series of initiations into the church, ritual practices that signify submission to God, and the covenant between man and God’s vicegerent. 

There are seven sacraments unique to the Catholic faith, but the rituals of initiation are three; baptism, confirmation, and the Eucharist: The body and blood of Christ. 

You will find in Luke chapter 22, verse 20:

“This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.”

– Holy Bible: Luke 22:20

Hidden within these words is a great mystery. A mystery, that no one throughout history has been able to decipher. It has been revealed by Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (fhip). 

The sacrament of the Eucharist is performed to enter into the guardianship of the church, submitting to God, something which the Shias also value. 

The word Islam means “submission”, reflecting the central core of the religion: Submission to God and his vicegerents on Earth.

One of the five pillars of Islam is “Shahada” or testimony. It is the profession of belief in the oneness of God, the acceptance of Muhammad as God’s messenger, as well as the guardianship of the Imams. 

Imam Al-Sadiq (pbuh) said: “The people are commanded to know us, refer to us and to submit to us”.

– Al-Kafi, Muhammad ibn Yaqub Al-Kulaini, 5th ed., v.2, p.398, hadith 5

The word “Shia” means “a group of followers,” denoting those who follow the Imam of their time. Like the Imam is to the Shia, the Pope is considered the sovereign ruler of the Catholics. And as such, he requires a sovereign state. 

A SOVEREIGN STATE

The Roman Catholic church derives part of its name from the city of its inception. Just as it is today, Rome has always been the epicentre of the Catholic faith. After all, the Pope is the Bishop of Rome. Peter travelled to the heart of the Roman Empire to carry out the will of Jesus, who had commanded his disciples:

 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations…”

– Holy Bible: Matthew 28:19

But Peter was met with grave persecution. In the year 64, when a great fire ravaged the city of Rome, Emperor Nero, who was accused of setting the fire himself, pinned the catastrophe on the growing Christian movement and put a mass group of Christians to death in his private arena. The Roman historian Tacitus wrote:

“Mockery of every sort was added to their deaths. Covered with the skins of beasts, they were torn by dogs and perished, or were nailed to crosses, or were doomed to the flames and burnt, to serve as a nightly illumination, when daylight had expired.”

– Annales, Tacitus, Book 15, ch.44

The area developed into a popular pilgrimage site. Catholics flocked to pay their respects at the grave of the first Pope, St. Peter, much like Shia Muslims visit the graves of the Imams – a tradition known as “Ziyarah.” This point in history marked a turning point for the church. For the first 280 years of its history, the church was banned by the Roman empire. But during the reign of Emperor Constantine, the church underwent a curious transformation. Constantine adopted Christianity as the official religion of the Roman empire. He gifted the Pope the Lateran Palace as a personal residence and began constructing the Old St. Peter’s Basilica. This gave the bishop of Rome an unprecedented level of wealth and power, for the first time creating an incentive for world leaders to interfere with matters of the church. 

The church, newly vested with power, kept its headquarters in the city of Rome, eventually establishing its city-state there. Vatican City is the modern-day capital of the Roman Catholic Church. It’s not only the location where the Pope lives and operates, it is an internationally recognised sovereign state, ruled entirely by the authority of the Pope. Vatican City mints its own money and flag, operates its own post office, has its own national anthem, and even has its own army. While Vatican City is just under 100 years old, the tradition of the Pope having his own sovereign state traces back much further. Before Vatican City, the Pope presided over the Papal Lands, scattered across Italy. 

And the concept of a divine kingdom was mentioned and foretold throughout the bible. 

The Old Testament scriptures prophesied a kingdom, ushered in by a Messiah. An earthly kingdom, that would be divine, established and presided over by God’s chosen ruler. This concept was at the centre of the life and teaching of Jesus Christ. Jesus talked constantly about this idea a lot, referring to it as the “Kingdom of God”. The gospel of Mark states: 

After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God. “The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!”

– Holy Bible: Mark 1:14-15 

And Jesus considered it his mission to spread the news of this kingdom. He said: 

“I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.”

– Holy Bible: Luke 4:43

But the prophecy of this kingdom didn’t end with Jesus Christ. And the idea of a divine state is not exclusive to Christianity. It is an important concept in the Shia belief system as well. 

Shias believe, based on the scriptures and the narrations of Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, that in the end times, the Imam of the time will establish a sovereign state of divine justice. And this Divine Just State will be ruled by a leader chosen by God.

DIVINE LEADERSHIP

Shia Muslims believe that God, alone, chooses the ruler, the Imam. Just like Catholics believe that God, alone, chooses the Pope. This is a shared belief in the supremacy of God, rather than the supremacy of man. So how does God decide? 

Have you ever faced a difficult decision and wished that you could ask God, directly, “What is the right thing to do?” Muslims believe that if you ask, God will answer. The Islamic faith teaches something called “Istikhara,” a term rooted in the Arabic word for “choice”. It’s a way to ask God for guidance. And the process, by which the Pope is selected, is strikingly similar. There are three types of Istikhara. The most famous and widely practised is opening up a random verse of the Quran. In Christianity, the same concept exists. It’s called bibliomancy. 

Another type of Istikhara is performed using prayer beads. And the third type of Istikhara is done by asking a group of 10 believers for guidance. Whatever the majority says is the answer. 

Essentially, God speaks through them. And how is the Pope selected? When a Pope dies or resigns, his successor is chosen by a Council of Cardinal electors. Cardinals are bishops and Vatican officials from all over the world. The men gather together in what is called the Papal Conclave, in St. Peter’s basilica. One by one, they cast a ballot, one by reciting a prayer and dropping a twice folded ballot into a large chalice. The process is repeated until a two-thirds majority is reached. If no one receives the majority of votes, the ballots are burned and chemicals are used to produce that famous black smoke. When the Pope is finally chosen, white smoke shoots out of the chimney to signal to the world the election of a new pope. 

Secrecy is key and the ballots must be burned because the ballots are not meant to be cast by the Cardinals themselves, but by the Holy Spirit, the essence of God. 

But there is a major problem with this selection process – it simply does not allow God to appoint the true leader. 

While the aim is to have God select the Pope by the secret vote of the Council of Cardinals, there are some major limitations. They keep it in the family, so to speak. 

In practice, the papacy is restricted to cardinals or perhaps a few bishops but even that is rare. 

The last non-cardinal to be elected was Pope Urban VI in the 14th century. When it comes to selecting the Proof of God, the pool of options would have to include everyone in the world for it to be valid. How can you expect to get God’s selection when you limit the people he can choose from? And on top of that, the water of this small pool of prospective candidates is notoriously filthy… 

Doesn’t this remind you of the warning of Jesus Christ, who said:

“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles?”

– Holy Bible: Matthew 7:15-16

What are the fruits of the Pope’s leadership? If you take God out of the equation, the Papal selection process is nothing more than a democratic election, held by an elite society that is guarding great secrets. And if the Papal selection process is not accurate, it can only mean one thing: the Pope, the Papa, the father of the Roman Catholics, the man who billions of people look to for divine guidance, is seated on a throne of lies. 

CONCLUSION

We have established that the Roman Catholic Church is the only Christian faith, today that traces back to the Apostles of Jesus. Catholicism is the only denomination, founded upon the true principle of a divinely appointed leader, a guardian of the faithful. And we have listed point after point, proving that Catholicism’s principles are rooted in that, which God ordained. And these are the same principles at the heart of the Shia faith. 

So the big question is this. Could there be a secret, connecting these two faiths? Perhaps a piece of history was lost. Could these two, seemingly different religions be one and the same? 

There is one kingdom, and one rightful king: A true Pope. But somehow, somewhere along the way, the one, universal church of God was hijacked. Within the walls of the Vatican, behind closed doors, there are secrets locked away. Secrets, which would shake the golden throne of St. Peter. And now, after thousands of years, thanks to Imam Ahmad Al-Hassan (fhip), the time has finally come for those secrets to be revealed.
