Ok, we use Tradition, Scripture and Church for our teachings. If Augustine believes in the real prescence and says he got that from John the Apostle (just an example) the Church will accept it as part of the oral Tradition right?
What if Augustine believes in double predestination…the Church rejects it. But what if he says he got that teaching from John? Why would the Church reject a teaching that could have come from an Apostle according to St. Augustine?
I only ask cause I am listening to a debate between Sungenis and White and a caller makes a point that Augustine believed in purgatory, but White countered with “Augustine also believes in a lot of things the Church denys like double predestination, and so it is ultimately sola ecclesia that the Catholics depend on, not Scripture and Tradition.” (paraphrased)
