Due to recent events I have seen many people claim the Pope is directly contradicting previous teachings and is in error (citing EWTN to prove their point). Some have even called him a heretic.
So, did he actually go against previous teaching, or is he really only expanding on it? I thought the Holy Spirit was supposed to act as a safegaurd against this?
Although important, that is not the main reason for my post. I would like to know, is the Church supposed to remain the same organization as it always has been, or can it change forms? I have seen people speculating that groups would break off in order to preserve the “true Catholic faith,” while everyone else would fulfill the great falling away. Is this possible? I ask because I have a deep seeded fear of following the “wrong version of the faith” and facing the eternal consequences.
