who here is constantly bringing up men who 'arrived on the scene' in the 15th century? are you missing books from the 1st century in your catholic bible?The Bible say so. I just posted verbatim the words used by St. Paul.
And I reject her opinion. The Catholic Church has arrived at it's theological outlook with the assent of the whole Church through hundreds upon hundreds of years. First with the ECF's, then with all the Bishop's who followed them, and then with all the theologians who also weighed in. The "men" whom you folks constantly bring up are actually those who arrived on the scene in the 15th century who suddenly decided things for themselves, and I say they are the men and what they put forth whom you both follow as you live out your relationship with God.
since when do catholics read or keep anything in scripture in its proper context? they don't. I don't think I've ever seen that happen in a catholic post on here.I agree that there is no problem with men calling other men father as the scriptures so clearly point out, even if the word "Holy" precedes the name. This has to be kept in the proper context and that context is that one should not see any other man as God the Father and there is no orthodox believing Christian (Catholic or Eastern Orthodox) that does so.
catholics do. that'd be their popes, magisterium men, priests, bishops etc. who is it that catholics claim has infallibility? the one they call 'holy father', and they aren't talking about God.
Those whose words they believe instead of the words of God Himself.
