so when the assumption of Mary was declared in 1950 by pope pius XII your faith is in him and the other popes that this is the correct teaching?

You.ve got it ALL wrong again--Confrinting--which is "nothing new" in your case. The fact is---There is "NOTHING to debate--NOTHING to discuss and NOTHING to argue over! The ONLY "authoritative, authenticated and verifiable TRUTH comes from Jesus Christ and HIS One and ONLY--- PROVEN (without a doubt) to be TRUE --Universal Catholic Church --(the Bride of Christ). Your "bible only" half truth Christianity, has "absolutely NO BASIS" of biblical or historical truth to back up "anything that you say" It is a "man-made" doctrine of belief that was "never believe by ANYONE" until the 17th century. It is nothing more that an extension of the Protestant Reformation that is grounded on "personal opinionated self-interpretation" of the bible., The Only truth that you can even (lay claim to) is "Relative Truth" (whatever each person believes)--"is the the truth". That is why (since the (protestant reformation) there are now over 42,000+ inconsistent, contradicting and conflicting denomination of (personal opinion bible interpetations. Liberalism and political correctness has infected many of these 42,000 beliefs in various ways, supporting
abortion, gay marriage, euthenasia, emboyonic stem cell research, women ministers, homosexual immorality and on and on and on--whichever way the next "political wind blows" ----God IS NOT, NOR EVER WILL BE, the author of your "bible only" Protestant confusion, chaos and heretical (half-truth) Christianity!!
An example of a Christian terrorist.

You are no better than the Muslims who foster in hatred against others, because they don't believe the same as you.

Maybe you should just strap a bomb to yourself and blow up these people you hate?

Declaring apostolic succession "bogus" based on your hunch as to what JPI got handed isn't really definitive.
Thanks for responding.
Never said it was "definitive".

It surely isn't any "succession" to what your heirarchy claims.

"Less than six of the original 13 Apostles"

Why do you limit "God" and let men make "His" decisions?

Again, my faith tells me that the Churhc Christ established cannot teach error.

The declaration of the Assumption in 1950 defined the belief in the Assumption as dogma, an article of faith revealed by God, which the magisterium of the Church presents as necessary to be believed.

What Catholic has told you here that they do not beleieve in the authority of scripture?
None.
Catholics do NOT believe that ONLY the Bible informs their faith, but this does not render the Bible less than authoritative.
Catholics don't believe that God's Word is the sole authority of Christianity.

Therefore, if a catholic teaching is NOT in God's Word, it still contradicts God's Word doesn't it?

To clarify, my faith isn't in Pope Pius XII-it's in Christ instructing us through His Church without possibility of error.

I'm glad you didn't-it barely rose above "speculative".

I didn't say a thing about "Less than six of the original 13 Apostles".

Men choosing what other men are to believe.

Yep - no "God" involved, yet you expressively state "an article of faith revealed by God".

"He" did - when? where? to whom?

Citation "from God" please.

Or, you being like other so-called "Catholics" will begin to spin the discussion in some other direction, like back at me?

We'll see how honest you really are.

I'll wait.

No.

Christ established the Church-in scripture. He did not establish His Church to teach error.

With all due respect, I'd have a bit more time for you if you hadn't posited your "JPI's early death vitiates apostolic succession" bit.

As it stands, we'll agree to disagree.

Who would make declarations of dogma in the Catholic Church, chuck, other than the Pope?
