I dont know what you're talking about. I try n look some of it up, but the best I get is 18th n 19th century propaganda stuff about the Inquisition. 50 million killed blah blah. Hey, its enough for you to wash your hands. It fits for you, that's why you believe it.<quoted text>
Liam you are between a rock and hard place.
Your Sect makes unfounded claims that your Church practice is from the unanimous practice of Holy Tradition. That your sect practices and believes completely as the Early Church did as has always been.
Yet those you claim as Popes in the 4 5 6 th centuries rejected the assumption of Mary as heretical and those who taught it HERETICS and that means those you claim as your Popes in the past teach what you practice today as necessary for Salvation as heretical.
You can cherry pick here and there a quote from a Church father that believed some things the RCC practices today that I reject on Biblical Ground buttt
But it is your SECT that has made all these lofty claims, I have not nor what you call Protestant sects.
We need not prove that which we don't claim to be true.
The burden of proof is on the RCC to prove her claims and you and the RCC and fellow RC's here refuse to do that because you Can't
So again I ask
How about you answer my question that is now a over two weeks old to you, to show you are sincere and fair.
Why don't you tell this thread how the RCC is the one True Yadda Yadda when she via Papal bull decree by a so called Apostolic Apostle called a Pope who said this is God's will that there be Inquisition in which a new branch of PRIESTS no less was formed to carry out torture and summary executions of so called heretics and non-believers to bring about conversion affirmed by 41 popes thereafter for over 400+ years with the result of with tens of millions dead and many more tortured displaced and their homes and wealth confiscated to the fill Romes coffers.
Really where was this taught by the Apostles Early Church Fathers or anyone for that matter before the 14th century.
Really this is a tough one for you because this so called infallible decree by Papal Bull and 41 popes afterwards affirming it contradicts the Teachings of Jesus his Apostles and early church fathers at every point.
Inquisition was normative practice in the RCC for over 400+ years Is this what Rome calls Holy Tradition??
the Church has always had an "inquisition" since the time of the Apostles. They still do today. Its not called Inquisition anymore. Its called (I think) the congregation of the doctrine of the faith. The Apostles had the same thing.(1cor 5:12-13)
Deuteronomy 17:2-5 concerning heresy "you shall inquire diligently" .
There was a tidal wave of heresy not long after the Bible was printed in 1454 AD, thus becoming available to people like you and me for the first time in Christianity. Its as if the devil saw men reading the Bible and decided to have a little fun with the new "private popes". What a mess today.
The big problem with the medieval inquisition was the Papacy allowing the Spanish Monarchy to conduct the trials.
Now you wasted my time by diverting your dillema to this. You think we cant see how sneaky you are? Grant it, you probably dont get any rebuttal when converting a catholic to your sect. Most are unaware that what you're saying is complete B.S.. Its easy to deceive someone that doesnt know their faith. Just point to a Bible verse, for example, "call no man Father" and the poor unsuspecting soul leaves the Catholic faith on account of you! You'll be held responsible for those you've led away.
