you know what? sedvacantists in many ways are in the same boat as protestants. there is so much disention as to what is the “truth.”
some believe that the chain of “antipopes” started with John XXIII, some believe it started with Pius XII some believe it started with Paul VI.
Some believe in baptsim of desire/blood, some don’t
some believe in feenyism, some don’t
some believe that the “Vatican II church” orders are valid, some don’t
some believe that the “Vatican II Church” sacraments are vaild, some don’t
some (conclavists) believe that there is currently a pope (ie pius XIII, Linus II, Peter II, Gregory XVII) some believe that there isn’t
and ofcourse there is much controvery over how to interpret papal decrees because there is no infallible guide for them to turn to since they claim that the seat is vacant. In the end they are pretty much relying on thier privite interpretation of tradition just as protestants rely on their privite interpretation of scripture. Who has the authority to decide what is true for the sedvacantist? the individual sedvacantist ofcourse!
Its a shame about what happened to Gerry, he was such a great apologist, i listened to alot of his debates against james white and i would say that gerry won most of them but now that he is a sedvacantist i think that he has lost alot of his credibility and people view him as a person who converts to a new faith based on his every whim. Supposedly he is best friends with scott hahn, maybe he can get him to come to his sences.
