Home Forums All Things Catholic Authority of the Church Reply To: Authority of the Church


Speaking of just any person(s) not being able to lead the Church, as a Catholic I feel blessed that the Pope has infallibility when it comes to God’s word and finding what that means for us today. Now, especially there are people who twist or “tweak” the passages of the Bible to have a meaning that was not intended by the author (God). Yes, the Pope is human, but obviously he is not just an Average Joe. His papal lineage is traced back to Peter who was the rock on whom Christ built his Church. So the point of all this is that Christ put a lot of faith and trust into Peter to look after His bride, the Church, thus, Christ knew that Peter and his successors would be following in Christ footsteps as best as humanly possible, and therefore, the Pope is to be trusted by Christ’s followers.
