TRUTH Please first read the Introduction as to why these blog posts are necessary. Back to Part 4 Index.

SPIRITUAL AUTHORITY: Error versus Truth

The Catholic Church Teaches (ERROR)

3. The Pope, as the Bishop of Rome, is the successor of Peter [RC Catechism 882, 936].

882 The Pope, Bishop of Rome and Peter’s successor, "is the perpetual and visible source and foundation of the unity both of the bishops and of the whole company of the faithful."402 "For the Roman Pontiff, by reason of his office as Vicar of Christ, and as pastor of the entire Church has full, supreme, and universal power over the whole Church, a power which he can always exercise unhindered."403

402 LG 23.
403 LG 22; cf. CD 2,9.

936 The Lord made St. Peter the visible foundation of his Church. He entrusted the keys of the Church to him. the bishop of the Church of Rome, successor to St. Peter, is "head of the college of bishops, the Vicar of Christ and Pastor of the universal Church on earth" (CIC, can. 331).

The Bible Teaches (TRUTH)

Peter had no successor.

Soli Deo Gloria
