The Pope DOES NOT IGNORE THE WORD OF GOD.<quoted text>
It certainly boggles the mind to think that Catholics believe the Pope can completely ignore the word of God and do whatever he wants.
“Jesus chose the apostles to be the earthly leaders of the Church. He gave them his own authority to teach and to govern—not as dictators, but as loving pastors and fathers.
Jesus assured the apostles and their successors, the popes and the bishops, "He who listens to you listens to me, and he who rejects you rejects me" (Luke 10:16). Jesus promised to guide his Church into all truth (John 16:12–13).”
