Well, God evidently allowed a bad Pope. Probably to wake the righteous up, because a greater good will always come out of bad. Lessons were learned.
But lets keep it real. Out of 266, there was only a few bad ones. And we almost exclusively rely on age old Protestant sources to get our info on their lives. An unbiased look into the Popes who are now labeled bad, will reveal that they did much good too, but their sins were blown up by the enemies of the Church and plastered around the world for all to ridicule.
Clay I am gonna be honest with ya.I read your first statement then stopped...You blame God for the mistakes of the popes?? Excuses excuses....so the good out ways the bad....lets just sweep it under the carpet....right?

Many of the apostles were fishermen. They used nets.They were fishers of men for Christ. But the Catholics here use hooks and most of their sole purpose is to bait people to anger. They are very disappointed when they dont succeed.

That was the Ark of the Covenant. I don't think we Catholics view the chair of Saint Peter like we would the Ark.
Like I stated earlier, we unfortunately rely on Protestant propaganda to shape our impression of these so-called bad popes.
Indeed, one of you guys are probably working feverishly right now to come up with a link detailing their lives. The link will undoubtedly come from a fanatical website.

I only find one or two that were downright corrupt. That's like 1%.. And only God knows what really happened in their minds. Thankfully by the guidance of God, these men did nothing to infiltrate sacred scripture or sacred tradition nor Dogma and doctrine.

<quoted text>I think maybe you could learn something from torturous history of Russia with the slaughters communism etc The "brave" Catholics here are only brave in Topix. They would change into any religion if threatened with death and torture. The reason I know that is that they dont even have the moral courage to face the Truth when it is presented here.
Are you saying the Russian Orthodox assimilated into the Soviet Orthodox and back to the Russian Orthodox out of fear?
Hey, I acknowledge the brutal oppression the Soviets and Lenin unleashed on the Orthodox Church. But remember, those were largely Orthodox that made up the Communist party, am I right?
Btw, I'm no expert on this history. So don't get mad. I did read a few things about the history of the Russian Orthodox though.

Clay honestly there is sin in every Church.I dont care about the Pope. If Catholics believe that the Pope is truly Biblical I dont have a problem with that. ts just not my belief. Since coming to Topix I have seen the Catholics post a Catholic version of Orthodoxy they get from Catholic sites. I have seen them ignore the Truth when presented. I have seen them turn mean and nasty and try to hurt people. So have no use for the Catholics here. And they still continue throwing in a side comment here and there about Orthodoxy. As long as they do this there is not one here that I respect or trust.And if I take them as representative of the Catholic Church, then the Catholic Church is my enemy because these Catholics are the enemy of the Orthodox Church here. The catholic church does not want me as an enemy.

My guess is, if you were allowed you would be burning Roman Catholics at the stake and waiting for rewards from a "god" for believing you performed HOLY deeds.

Good Grief!

Christians say that Allah is a false god ... but the word Allah simply "means" god in a different language than English.

They all preach there is only one god, and they all believe they have complete ownership OF the one and only god.

Humans are idiots with no hope of improvement.

Not me clay...I am done looking up links.It waste of time.Its pointless also.You don't have to look towardsanyone to shape the history of your bad Popes.They did it to themselves! it is what it is!Where are you going for your information? On a catholic site.If so, let me know. I would truly like to view your resouraces also.

O I LEFT OUT SIMON DID i NOT...

THE TRUTH IS

HAD THE DYNASTY OF DAVID REMAINED/CONTINUED... IN JERUSALEM OVER THE 28

GENERATIONS...between the the rein of David and Joseph...

Joseph and Mary would have been the royal family in Jerusalem at the

birth of Jesus .

Jesus the first born would have been heir apparent to the PHYSICAL

throne OF DAVID at the death of Joseph...

WHEN JESUS ASCENDED TO HIS HEAVENLY THRONE..

JAMES JESUS' EARTHLY BROTHER WOULD HAVE BEEN THE NEXT IN LINE.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC (so called) CHURCH ATTEMPTED TO USURP THE THRONE

FOR THEMSELVES AND SET PETER ( WHO WAS NOT A DESCENDANT OF DAVID) UPON A

THRONE IN ROME..AND A WHOLE LINE OF GENTILES TO BE PETERS

SUCCESSORS...

ALL TRUE CHRISTIANS KNOW THAT JESUS NEVER INTENDED TO SET A PHYSICAL KINGDOM..

AND HE DID NOT

BUT RATHER A SPIRITUAL KINGDOM IN THE HEARTS OF THOSE THAT BELIEVE IN HIM AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR.

KayMarie:
True....Yet even though we are forgiven, we(and God) do not forget.
And to me, because one does not forget, the soul presently carries not just the penalty for sin, but also guilt. And guilt is not so easily washed away.
Our memories cannot be washed clean, otherwise our minds could not hold memories. In a sense we have a temporary truce with God, and this give us peace and consolation with God, in which together God and oneself can work on rebuilding a better, and lasting relationship....
And guilt, within our souls(specifically within our memories)which could weigh us down into despair, will be transformed. But be cheerful, because in God we hope. And it is when our hope is fulfilled that our guilt ends....

**********
Guilt is probably the heaviest load that a human being can feel.
One may remember their sin, but the one who truly accepts the offer of forgiveness from God, is relieved of the burden of it.

If we ourselves could suffer enough to pay for our sin, or if we could do penance and remove it, no one would be 'sinsick'! Man's problem is that he is too proud to admit that he is a sinner, so he cannot seek forgiveness from Someone he cannot see, for something he has not done.

So he remains in his sin...

You missed my post Rose, what a surprise. Yes he was chosen by the Holy Spirit. Yes, he's St. Peter's successor. Yes, they are sinners. Yes, St. Peter was a sinner. And the Orthodox will tell you the same about their episcopate (maybe not the ones here).
I have a few of my own if you don't mind;
Who in your congregation is holy? Any of them free of sin? Are protestant preachers who claim to be chosen by the Holy Spirit free of sin? Is your preacher preaching the truth even if he's having an adulterous affair with one of your congregants? Isn't all sin the same according to protestant doctrine? Wouldn't that mean stealing a loaf of bread is just as bad as visiting a brothel?
No they are not but they do nit claim as far as I KNIW to be chosen by the HOLY SPIRIT to be a,direct successor to ST PETER.

THEY are not POPES,claiming to be the head of the TRUE CHURCH.

HOWEVER..I will say I was surprised to read

That the PURPOSE of VATICAN 2. Was,to REJECT THE IDEA,THAT CHRISTS,CHURCH rested SOLEY with the CATHOLIC CHURCH

after reading on this forum ..to read that totally floored me

Clay Honestly I know that whenever the Catholics want to attack the Orthos they bring up Russia. I havent read a lot about the history of Russia. I read some. For instance I know of the many many Orthodox martyrs that died for the faith. I know that when threatened by Hitler that they paired up with a corrupt Russian government. I know that at times the top hierarchy was in cohoots with the corrupt government. I know there was corruption at the top levels as they went through communism etc. Ill read up on it . Then I will be able to have an intelligent discussion about it. I need to anyway because of how your peers always use this to attack the Orthodox Church. I wont pretend to be knowledgeable about this issue, but I guarantee you I will be when I am ready for our discussion.
