***This is regarding the thread that started… I think yesterday. No one is looking at that thread anymore so I’m continuing here. ***
Okay. I’m going to make an attempt here. All of you are much smarter than I am. Maybe that’s the problem. You’re all too smart and making a mess of a very simple thing.
What does the subject of the earth being round or flat have to do with faith and morals?
The Pope is only speaking infalliably when he is speaking in terms of faith and morals. Nothing else. I think someone else said this in an earlier thread…but no one paid attention.
The Church can have many views on any subject. There are a lot of things that are taught in theory. But when the Pope is sending forth Truth regarding faith and morals…it come from the Holy Spirit therefore-infalliable. I don’t think the earths shape fits this scenario.
I wish the Church new everything. The Church does try to understand everything and the Church will teach based on the knowledge they have obtained. These types of teachings are called theories. All of you brainies out there know this. The Church doesn’t “know” everything. God knows everything.
