And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. Matt 24:11
The Catholic Church is the Beast church as described in the book of Revelation. Obviously it is the Beast. The Pope holds two offices, a state office and a clergy office. Both offices are not constitutional. It’s also evil that people have known the Pope as Vicar. Vicar means “Christ on the earth.”
Many treat the Pope as if he is God himself. They kiss his hand, or travel for miles giving up all they have just to meet the Pope. This is sickening. It is also idolatry
Kissing of the hand is representing loyalty or trust in the Pope for salvation or hope. This is unbiblical and lording as Jesus warned about the Pharisees in His time.
What does it mean to be the Vicar of Christ?Vicar of Christ. … The original notion of a vicar is as an “earthly representative of Christ“, but it’s also used in the sense of “person acting as parish priest in place of a real person.” The title is now used in Catholicism to refer to the bishops and more specifically to the Bishop of Rome (the pope).

For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. So it is no surprise if his servants, also, disguise themselves as servants of righteousness. Their end will correspond to their deeds. 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
