Quick question, even though you also never respond with a direct answer, please explain to me:
a. If there were 13 Apostles, and Peter was the first to be chosen as Pope, and more than likely those other Apostles were alive (Acts state this to be), why weren't any of those individuals considered to be the successor of Peter? You would think that they all had the same teachings.
But instead, we have many non-Apostles taking that lead position.
One would think that even "John", "Matthew" or Mark - all original Apostles, and all with gospels - show that they were much more deserving than...
St. Linus (67-76)
St. Anacletus (Cletus)(76-88)
St. Clement I (88-97)
St. Evaristus (97-105)
Shoot - even Luke doesn't get a shot at this peek position.
As I've stated in the past - what you may think as "Apostolic Succession" (from one of the original 13 Apostles) is complete.
Far from it.
Enlighten me Star with your Catholic two-step, I mean wisdom.
Sorry, I don’t do the 2 step, zumba is my dance!!

They voted, much like today.
The wisdom will come from the Apostles.

“After the Holy Apostles (Peter and Paul) had founded and set the Church in order (in Rome) they gave over the exercise of the episcopal office to Linus. The same Linus is mentioned by St. Paul in his Epistle to Timothy. His successor was Anacletus”

Among the apostles there were two groups. The first consisted of the Twelve, who witnessed the whole of Christ's earthly ministry from his baptism to his Ascension (Acts 1:21-26). The second group of apostles, including Paul and Barnabas (Acts 14:14), was not bound by this condition. Thus Paul had seen and been commissioned as an apostle by the risen Christ (1 Cor. 9:1, Gal. 1:1), though he had not been a disciple of Jesus during his earthly ministry (Acts 9, 1 Cor. 15:8).“

Acts 2:42 reports

that the people "devoted themselves to the teaching of the Apostles" and in

Acts 5:13: "No one of the rest dared to join himself to them [the Apostles]

but the people magnified them." So all did understand from the start that

it was the Apostles, and they alone who had the commission from Christ to

teach. St. Paul constantly teaches with authority. Pope St. Clement I, in
an Epistle to Corinth c. 95 AD, intervened with authority. He said: "Our
Apostles knew through our Lord Jesus Christ that there would be strife over
the name of Bishop. As a result, having received full foreknowledge, they
appointed those we have mentioned, and meanwhile added a provision that if
these would fall asleep [die] other approved men should receive their
ministry."

Acts 1, tells us that the FIRST ECUMENICAL COUNCILS was held to replace Judas.
20
For it is written in the Book of Psalms:'Let his encampment become desolate, and may no one dwell in it.' And:'May ANOTHER TAKE HIS OFFICE.'
21
Therefore, it is necessary that one of the men who accompanied us the whole time the Lord Jesus came and went among us,
22
beginning from the baptism of John until the day on which he was taken up from us, become with us a witness to his resurrection."
23
So they PROPOSED TWO, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also known as Justus, and Matthias.
24
Then they prayed, "You, Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which one of THESE TWO YOU HAVE CHOSEN
25
TO TAKE THE PLACE IN THIS APOSTOLIC MINISTRY from which Judas turned away to go to his own place."
26
8 Then they gave lots to them, and the lot fell upon Matthias, and he was counted with the eleven apostles

Thanks for asking!
Question for you.….

“These were the neighborhoods where the Christians lived. Yet Christian homes were somehow different, and that difference was among the great and silent means of evangelization”
“...Heedless of danger, they took charge of the sick, attending their every need and ministering to them in Christ — and with them departed this life serenely happy; for they were infected by others with the disease, drawing on themselves the sickness of their neighbors and cheerfully accepting their pains.”

<quoted text>according to the time frames of your Church fathers mopst of the apostles would have been dead by the time these so called Bishops were grown men and biblically to be called to take the office of Priest at age 30 according to Jewish custom.
Where do you suppose John was around 80 A.D. and was he on Patomas whne he wrote Revelation ? Yes I believe he was.
Many Church fathers were born yrs after the Apostles such as: Justin Martyr, Tertullian, Irenaeus. However, they were students of the Disciples of the Apostles....men like Polycarp, Ignatius of Antioch and Clement of Rome. They are called "Apostolic Fathers". Their writings are to be looked at by anyone interested in what the Apostles actually taught about things like the Eucharist.
They were validly ordained Bishops by the Apostles.

The men they in turn ordained,(Martyr, Irenaeus,) should also be taken serious, I would think.
Ellen White was never ordained by anyone. She had no authority to chime in on her personal opinion of scriptures. Ignatius did have that authority.

John the Apostle is believed to have died naturally in Ephesus around 100 AD. He was never believed to have died on the island. He couldn't have because Polycarp and Ignatius were his students. They are the main reasons why we know about Johns letters. They told us!!

As for your opinion that Ignatius and Clement couldn't have been Bishops because they needed to be 30. Well that's just stupid. Jesus made John (the youngest Apostle) a Priest when he was in his early twenties. Christ entrusted John with the care of His Mother Mary, when he around 27 yrs old.

Lol. Sound the alarm! Head to the compound!

You fools looked directly at John the Apostles warning about adding to his prophecy; knowing full well the seriousness because he directly equated the act as adding plagues to your soul.

Arrogantly, boldly, with stupidity, ignorantly, without regard for his warning, you ignored him. You concocted a conspiracy scenario on Christianity and undid direct teachers given by the Apostles.

“The Lord is calling me 'out to the mountain' to devote more time to prayer and meditation, but this does not mean I'm abandoning the Church. In fact, if God is asking this of me, it's precisely to continue serving the Church with the same dedication and love with which I have served so far, but in a way that's more suited for my age and strength.”

Why ????????? Is it that the creators name Is Yahweh And the world worships him as A god The very thing he warns you not to worship god and or gods.

Marge If you keep the law you are righteous if you do not you are a sinner. The new testament messed a bunch of things.
I have not come to destroy the law but establish it.

Marge can you not see what has become of this world without the law...It is awe full. I can tell you in heaven or the kingdom we will be taught the law and we will keep them or you will not be there he will not allow heaven to become defiled like this earth...

We have got to the point where the water is not fit to drink and the food is the same.And all their is is sin and war.oh and let me not forget the filth on the telly And how it has become acceptable.

You are correct Clay.:)

2 Peter 1:
20* Know this first of all, that there is no

prophecy of scripture that is a matter of personal

interpretation,

21for no prophecy ever came through human will; but rather human beings moved by the holy Spirit spoke under the influence of God.

2 Tim 3:16
16* All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for refutation, for correction, and for training in righteousness,* 17 so that one who belongs to God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

NOTE:
*[1:20–21] Often cited, along with 2 Tm 3:16, on the “inspiration” of scripture or against private interpretation, these verses in context are

directed against the false teachers of 2 Pt 2 and

clever tales (2 Pt 1:16). The prophetic word in scripture comes admittedly through human beings
(2 Pt 1:21), but moved by the holy Spirit, not from their own interpretation, and is a matter of what the author and Spirit intended, not the personal interpretation of false teachers. Instead of under the influence of God, some manuscripts read “holy ones of God.”
