[quote=Hesychios]This bothers me a lot.
If there was no decree or discussion on intercessory prayer at that council, the net effect of that program is to promote a myth which we are sure to hear repeated by Protestants from now on.
I could see the possibility of some discussion on the subject, some cautionary statements or regulating canons but it does not seem that there actually are any. I sure would like to know what justification that debator had in saying such a thing.
I note from reading elsewhere on the net that there have been as many as 20 councils held at Carthage, none of them considered ecumenical I presume. If there was good information available on all of them, it would be a lot of writing to wade through. My guess would be that most of the documentation is scanty at best.
Get used to it Michael…It happens a lot.
One way to insure that you can find all such references in any document w/o havin’ ta read the whole thing is to copy and paste it to a word document in your comp and then use your find feature to locate all the places where a given word is used then just click “find next” all the way through the doc to get all the info ya need. If ya find it you can then read the context to insure that it means what they claim it does (I have found that this is where they most often fail!) then post the context to show that they had it wrong.
Needless to say you can save the document if ya want, but you don’t have to…I just bookmark the place where I found the doc online in a special folder.( Just in case…)
