My friend, thank you for posting in reply to my OP’s question.
The NEW space restrictions are woefully inadequate for serious apologetics; more so when multiple concerns are expressed
May I ask WHAT brings you to CAF?
WHAT precisely has the RCC changed on Her Morals Teaching?
And exactly WHAT Dogma has She Changed as you charge? As a Catholic-catechist,
I am unaware of either being the case.
As to the perpetuity of the papal office being “outright false” …on what specific calm do you ground this claim?
I’ve been teaching, sharing, explaining and defending when necessary my Catholic Faith for nearly 30 years. In that time I have never heard of the charge that the RCC is “indefectible”; indeed I find the charge to be a bit strange. After all we are some 2,000 years old and continuing despite near constant attacks of one sort of another, both from within Judas to our present challenges, and from without. Islam for example
Islam dates from 610AD [“AD” standing for After [Christ] Death
Here is the List of ALL Popes & their dates of service:
& Liber Pontificalis [the history of the Popes]
Tthere is another issue here and that is the Bishops, and the Catholic Magisterium. The Pope is considered to be “the first Bishop among ‘equals‘ ” as was Peter:
Eph. 2: 19-21 “So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord” & Mt 18: 18 where Christ extends the authority of the other Apostles: Mt 15:18-19, Mt 18:18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the powers of death shall not prevail against it” I will give YOU the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever YOU bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever YOU loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven." …Matt.18:18 Truly, I say YOU whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven [READ verses 1-17 also]
