I just did show it. Get your eyes checked.
The biblical basis of the office of the papacy is Peter and the role he played in the Apostolic Church.
The biblical basis of the office of the episcopacy is the other apostles and the role they played in the Apostolic Church.
When you say that the papacy has no basis in the Bible, that is like saying there was no Peter--or if there was a Peter who followed Jesus, he did nothing.
When you say that the episcopacy has no basis in the Bible, that is like saying there were no apostles, or if there were apostles who followed Jesus they did nothing.
So you prefer the transubstantiation way of presenting facts? Nothing to see here, literally but theres your proof! You said there is an 'office' of the papacy. I asked where and youre like 'duh, peter of course'. Well that says absolutely nothing. Where oh where can i find the 'office' of overseer?
1 Tim 3
1 The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer,
he desires a noble task. 2 Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, 3 not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money. 4 He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive, 5 for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God's church? 6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil. 7 Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.
Where is THAT with respect to the papacy? Nowhere. Thank you. Why is it we can always find what we believe but catholics want to play the 'its there trust us' game?
