Gerry Breshears :: Should Protestants be excited about Pope Francis?

  • “When I read about him, the things I find in the press are very positive,” answers Dr. Gerry Breshears, Author and Professor of Theology at Western Seminary, “I’m glad they’ve chosen a man who is honoring justice in simple life.” However, Pope Francis, like the rest of Roman Catholicism, elevates Mary to a nearly divine level. Theologically, there will be areas that we agree or disagree with Roman Catholicism; similar to the way we do with Protestantism or other areas of Christianity. “So I’ve got differences, but I really like the character of this guy.”
