I researched as best as i could on Clement of Alexandria and Origen.
Origen, I was already familiar with, and knew he was a prolific 2nd century scholar, but not a Bishop, Priest or Deacon of the Catholic Church. In fact, he's not even a Saint in either the Orthodox or Catholic Churches.
There is no record of Alexandrine Clement. Perhaps Clement of Alexandria?
Like Origen and Tertullian, he is regarded as a 'church father' due to his contributions as a writer and theologian. Unfortunately, the Orthodox and Catholic Church do not view him as a Saint either, but a scholarly contributor to early Christianity. He was also considered a heretic by many because of his gnostic views.
In a nut shell osas7, its no wonder you found some sites that would attempt to pass these men off as Bishops or Popes who went against the Church. They were, however, educated scholars who did much good for the early Church.
Can you quote me calling them a Pope Or Bishop? I didnt think so. However, they were church fathers(which I actually said before), and they representa some early thoughts in Christianity. Also, Origen was the first to give commentary on the Gospel of Matthew. Again, not everyone held to transubstantiation, which is what I have been saying.

You lose credibility when you chime in about things you know nothing about. It proves you are not interested in truth.

Maybe im just tired. But i swear your link endorses my argument that the OT canon came after Christianity. Around 90 AD?
What do you make of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls? Clearly Tobit and Sirach were included in these Jews' scriptures.

So you believe that John Calvin "got it right" HUH?
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >
From the book,“A History of Christianity … volume 2 Clyde L. Manschreck, Editor, comes the following………
Through a consistory of six clergymen and twelve laymen, Calvin enforced piety and rules of conduct more in the spirit of the Old than the New Testament. His overall rule was “to glorify God and praise him forever,” and the practical means of achieving this was strict discipline. He could not tolerate anything that seemed to dishonor God of the elect, and he punished drunkenness, profanity and divergent views with severity.
(18) Fines were assessed for not attending church, adulterers were sentenced to death, dancing was punishable by imprisonment, a child was beheaded for striking his parents. And a critic was beheaded for placing a placard on Calvin’s pulpit.
Not a follower just said he got it right on the point we were discussing. You knew that though and you do not look for truth but to win at words of wit or debate. Truth is not about who can say the most words or be the wittiest or obtuse. Truth is only found by those who seek truth not proving themselves right.

Goodness, I would say allot more people didn't believe in transubstantiation than you think. It's not an easy Sacrament to comprehend unless you've partook in it or you are familiar with earlier Jewish scriptures.

Even those who knew Christ personally couldn't grasp it...

"Many of His Disciples, when they heard it said, "This is a hard saying. Who can listen to it?"
But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at it, said to them, "Do you take offense at this? What if you were to see the Son of Man ascending where He was before? It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words that I have spoken to you are SPIRIT AND LIFE.. But there are some of you that do not believe"

After that, many of His disciples had enough and walked away from Our Lord.

I didn't say you actually said they were Popes or Bishops. But my first impression was that they had 'some sort of official athoritive opinion on the matter' that's why you decided to quote them i presumed.
As i said, i was familiar with Origen, and knew he was a 2nd century intellectual. There wasn't many educated Christians back then. Men like Origen and Clement of Alexandria were important to the communication of the faith ... Much in the same way that Luke was vital to the Apostle Paul in communicating the faith.
Thats how i see it.
It's ok to study what Origen and Clement of Alex had to say, but it still comes down to what the Church decided was valid. Some of their stuff was in valid. Some were not.

Now, Ignatius of Antioch and Clement of Rome were valid members of the Church heirarchy. They were ordained by the bare hands of the Apostles. What these men had to say about the faith carries great weight. Their writings destroy Protestanism. It validates 2,000 yrs of the Catholic faith.
