You may have stated "he's infallible under the proper definition", but you are yet to admit it is your belief.

Please stop stalling and answer the question, well that is if you are honest enough to do so. Which appears you aren't.

Well?

Main article: Gender of God in Judaism

Although God is referred to in the Hebrew Bible with masculine imagery and grammatical forms, Jewish philosophy does not attribute to God either sex or gender.[7] At times, Jewish aggadic literature and Jewish mysticism do treat God as gendered, though these are not uniformly masculine or feminine.

Please,follow,WHAT has,been said..in context ..
.
Clay said,I should know,because,of previous,posts over the years..how,I don't know. know Since I was not here .....about the infallibility being about doctrine .regards the popes
I said I know,that is,what your church teaches. When the pope,is is speaking what you all call Ex,Cathedra..But I mentioned that you Said the Church teaches,the pope is,infallible.
He himself is,not.
Not even by your own teaching unless he is,making doctrine
So I posted what YOU Said..Not me
And,I mentioned that some POPES were,far from it .personally ..
Then I asked another question..waiting on that answer..
Yes he is infallible as the Catholic Church defines infallibility. You have some other definition apparently. What question did you ask, I have trouble deciphering your posts.

in·fal·li·ble/&#618;n& #712;fæl&#601;b&#601;l /[in-fal-uh-buhl]
adjective
1. absolutely trustworthy or sure: an infallible rule.
2. unfailing in effectiveness or operation; certain: an infallible remedy.
3. not fallible; exempt from liability to error, as persons, their judgment, or pronouncements: an infallible principle.
4. Roman Catholic Church . immune from fallacy or liability to error in expounding matters of faith or morals by virtue of the promise made by Christ to the Church.

Maybe you don't understand the definition.

We all already know that many Popes in the history fo the RCC have not met these qualifications.

I;m not asking for any definition, I was asking if you believe the Pope is infallible.

The definition would only be used, to make a decision in your mind on whether you have decided if this is true for your belief of the person or not.

Anthony, can you make a statement that says you believe he is infallible?

Yes Anthony I know that ..thus as persons,nit infallible.
Now may be you can answer
AS Just ONE example
If the Borgia,pope..a man NOT KNOWN FOR HOLINESS..was elected fir political reasons..And not by the leading of the HOLY SPIRIT .
Was He in fact a true successor to St Peter.
Or was it just politics ...Not holy at all.
Really would like an HONEST answer..
Yes, he was a true successor to St. Peter. A bad guy, very sinful, but a true successor who did not err when he declared doctrine on the apostolic faith. He was more like the pharisees Jesus said we should listen to, do what they say, but not what they do.

My salvation doesn't hinge on what some guy says in the yr 2013, after reading the Books the Catholic Church installed in the Bible. Thats just the reality Preston.
This morning, I had the Eucharist at the daily Mass. The Mass was set up by the Apostles. Just like the Jews ate the sacrificial Lamb, we eat the Lamb of God made present in the bread. The Jews didn't eat a symbol of a Lamb. We don't eat a symbol of Christ.
This is the word of God. It was preached by Saint Andrew in Greece; Saint Thomas in India. Every Christian until a few hundred yrs ago had the Mass. We Catholics follow the word of God in its full deposit- highlighted around the Eucharist.
without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin, eating a piece of grain will never and has never saved one person.

anything set up by any Apostle should be Biblical. I see no words by any Apostle that eating that bread might save a person.

if that was the case just like being Baptised, then the death of Jesus would not have had to have happened.

and you don't know those people Preached anything of the sort. it is just some lie that your church has told you to accept. just like the lie told about Polycarp et al being disciples of John. who knows,but they might have been the ones that left John because they couldn't abide by his Words and the Truth.lol

Which one? They never agreed on anything. The old popes believed "god" ordained putting "sinners" to death was a righteous idea. Pope Benedict preached that he didn't agree with the death penalty as being acceptable to "god."

Ridiculous people speaking as though they personally know the will of one or another god!!!

Religion is the worst blight to ever infect human imagination.

Dust Storm provided a quote from a Metropolitan Phillip to support that the conciliar nature of the Ortho Church made it disorganized and chaotic.
THE QUOTE AS PROVIDED BY STORM GAVE THE IMPRESSION THAT A GREEK ORTHODOX CHURCH WOULD HAVE 2 BISHOPS COVERING THE SAME TERRITORY. ANTHONY THOUGHT THIS MEANT THEY WOULD CROSS INTO EACH OTHER'S TERRITORIES, ETC. CHAOS! RIGHT!
Well Metro Phillip was talking about Eastern Orthodox Churches under different Patriarchs (remember we do not have a "king Pope")
So the Antiochan Orthodox would have their Bishop for a district and the Greek Orthodox would have a Bishop for the same district if they had a church there. be Greek Bishop would never cross into another Greek Bishop's territory. A Greek Bishop would never cross into an Antioch Bishop's territory and vice versa.
But their Orthodox faith is the same. They are united in love and faith, not in dictatorship. And the Bishop presides in love, not dictatorship. is job is to coordinate with the other Bishops- Greek, Antiochian, etc to insure the faith is protected.
You that know history know that the Orthodox Church, following this conciliar system, have preserved the same faith for about 2000 years whereas the Catholics have for example changed the Mass about 50 times. Our Liturgy goes back to the 3rd Century with Hymns and Prayers from the first.
The second deception is that when I debunked Storm's source, this Metro Phillip who dressed in a cowboy outfit pointing a gun at his flock saying pay your diocese fees and is considered a dictator and basically a Papist by his own flock,
Storm says his source was not Phillip by Likouris.
But Likouris only authored the article. He quoted Phillip.Likouris,(although a Catholic convert LOL)has impressive credentials.SO STORM MADE IT SOUND LIKE THIS SCHOLAR SAID THE QUOTE.
BUT THE QUOTE WAS NOT THE SCHOLAR LIKOURIS', THE MAN WITH THE CREDENTIALS. LIKOURIS WAS JUST THE WRITER WHO WAS QUOTING THE "COWBOY BISHOP".IT WAS NOT LIKOURIS HE WAS QUOTING BUT THE "COWBOY BISHOP". SO DUST STORM LIES AROUND THE COWBOY AND MAKES THE READER THINK THE SCHOLAR MADE THE QUOTE AND LISTS THE SCHOLAR'S CREDENTIALS.
Not true. I never said or implied two Greek bishops covered the same territory. I specifically stated "different traditions" decribing them as "Serb, Russian, Ukrainian, Greek", etc.

You may have misundertood me, but you denied it initially, then reconsidered after realizing you were wrong.

As far as changing our mass, the essential parts of the mass have never been changed. See St. Justin Martyr (circa AD 150) for reference.

Metropolitan Phillip says this of modern Orthodoxy:

"Eastern Orthodoxy is plagued by excessive nationalism, liturgical decay, and doctrinal fluctuations - all factors which have crippled its apostolic energies."

who=" Anthony MN"
They were sinners. We are all sinners. There were a few scoundrels in St. Peter's chair, but the gates of hell did not prevail. Even the worst did not teach error.

**********

Anthony...the rest of us, and the Bible, make it plain that one's actions teach more than their words.

If one 'teaches' the Word, but lives in opposition to it, what do you think his hearers believe? Do?

Honest people call that HYPOCRISY...

Silly people and their silly religions.
There is no such thing as a Christian heaven or a Christian hell. And as far as Muslims or any religious group ending up all in hell.The Scriptures are very clear that God looks upon the heart,as He does yours as well.I believe you are playing Russian Roulette with your soul,and your comments are clear indication that you remain clueless as to understanding anything spiritual.

and yeah, it DOES say something about me and people like me, just as it does to GIF, but it SAYS NOTHING about some pedophile priest singing a magical cantation over a piece of grain,
AND YOU CANT SHOW US BY THE WORD OF GOD. JESUS NEVER SANG ANY LATINO WORDS WHEN HE BROKE UP THE BREAD TO SHARE IT WITH THE REMAINDER OF THE GUESTS AT THAT SUPPER.
So Babylon is Rome in Revelation, but it's not Rome in 1 Peter. And Ananias wasn't supposed to tell St. Paul that baptism would wash away his sins. lol.

Yes, Sts. Peter and Paul were in Rome. All respected biblical scholars INCLUDING protestant say St. Peter was there and died a martyr. They built up the Church in Rome and appointed and ordained successors. St. Paul says the faith of the Church at Rome is reknowned throughout the whole world.

Neither of them say one word about two goofy self-appointed, self annointed loudmouthed fundamentalist preachers in AD 2013. Sorry.

Thank you for responding to my comment on "Jesus became as sin for us."I am in the middle of much going on in my life,so I frequent this thread.Maybe that is good,because most of what is posted is frustrating to say the least. NO one agrees with anyone ever,and everyone is there own isolated belief system,never the twain shall meet.

We are having a heat wave,as most of the country.Hopefully it will break soon.But it is not as bad as last year,our summer was brutal in 2012,at least we have some days in the 70s now.And most of all some rain.We actually this year had just regular rain falls without all the severity.Have a great day!
