I thought God only spoke to Benny Hinn, Jimmy Swaggert, Mike Murdoch, Wendy and Rory and all their tele-evangelist friends. Did the Pope have to book a private call with God when all the TV charlatans were not in communication with him?

Old Bennie wasn't so silly. How many former Popes have gotten out of the Papacy alive?

MAN !!!!.. do you ever have a talent for error

In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways .. BUT in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son .. whom he appointed heir of all things .. and through whom he made the universe ... The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the EXACT REPRESENTATION OF HIS BEING .. sustaining all things by his powerful word .. After he had provided purification for sins .. he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven .... http://bobgeorge.net/teaching/hebrews/index.h... .. Hebrews 1

And no doubt you can prove these claims by quoting from the Bible.
I'm prepared to wager that you don't have any real proof though.
