    Now, that Pope Benedict XVI has resigned due to health reasons, there will be a new pope selected.  According to St. Malachy, a 12th century Archbishop of Armagh,Ireland, this new pope will be THE LAST pope.   The prophecy further stated that the day the last pope's reign will be a harbinger of terrible times in the world leading to tribulations and the rise of the anti-Christ.   How PLAUSIBLE is this prophecy, if at all?

      St. Malachy's prophecy was a fraud. Supposedly written in Rome in 1139 and put in the Vatican's secret achieves until 1595. Several historians have concluded that the prophecies are a late 16th-century forgery. Noting the higher level of accuracy of the prophecies before 1595 and comparing the very low level of accuracy after 1595 coupled with the lack of recorded information regarding the prophecies prior to 1595 the fraud become more apparent.

        But they are just as much true and written at the mentioned time, just like the bible.

          No they are not like the bible.
          Firstly they are catholic... enough said.
          What other ancient/new documents do you hold in the same esteem as the bible?
          There clearly are no other documents to be held in such high esteem as the bible. If you read the bible with a different attitude you would completely understand that when you say things like this you just rant.

      Prophecies are done. Prophecy was an OT function. Paul stated that they would pass away. If one looks at the function of the OT prophetic ministry you will find hard hitting, decisive commentary, foretelling future events. All this was necessary in the Primary School (OT) established to connect God to his people. This ministry is not needed in the Collegiate School (NT).
