Benedict says :
[quote:11366kef]Ron, the early Church did, in fact, read the letters and Gospels of the New Testament.
But where did they go for answers and teaching? The Apostles and their successors, the bishops. This is attested to from the earliest documents to the present day. In fact, the Bible itself attests to this.[/quote:11366kef]_________________
Sorry pal but I don’t buy that Apostolic succession garbage when it often times was nothing more then one pope becoming a pope because their daddy had an one night stand or the times where three different popes clsimed to be the pope.
