Your new pope Francis just indicated that the previous administration of the roman catholic church were NARCISISSTIC. The same men that you have boasted about continously on this forum.<quoted text>
The cherry picking of the Church fathers is done by your side. You flat out ignore the most damning aspects of their writings, and you embrace some that only appear to validate the fundie theology.
There were disagreements among the Church leaders in every decade since 33 AD. There are still disagreements today too. This is all the more reason why Christ installed a Church and not a list of Books. Anthony is right, you guys are very arrogant to think you know more about the Ministry of Jesus Christ than Ignatius and Clement- who walked, ate and slept beside the Apostles. When they speak of what the Church and Eucharist is, than THAT is what the Church and Eucharist are.
You have no authority to show up 2,000 yrs later, and undo what these men taught. You're just a dude with a fairly new printed Bible that contains SOME of what SOME of the Apostles wrote.
What does that say about you?
