It is funny though how Roman Catholics often argue amongst themselves that the Magisterium is needed to ensure unity in the church, and they really try to convince others that the RCC is indeed a united church. But the "face-it!" reality is that the RCC has been characterized by significant disunity for many, many years! Once of the reasons the RCC published the "new" Catechism of the Catholic Church was another one of the RCC's expensive efforts to draw the church back to doctrinal unity. Debated issues included such critically important doctrines as the Trinity, the Eucharist, and the authority of the pope.I do not write commentaries on Catholic councils to give them my own ecumenical, religiously indifferent slant, like Jimmy Akin. I do not even condemn the novel teachings of Vatican II, because there is no need for me to do so. They have already been condemned by by the Infallible Teaching Magisterium of the Church.
One merely has to juxtapose the teachings of the Catholic Church which have remained consistent through the ages against the contradicting teachings promulgated by Vatican II and then use your God given reason to conclude that the two are not in conformity, that there is no continuity.
You think that what you believe regarding sacred scripture is correct. But your interpretation of sacred scripture is no more or less valid than any other Protestant's, because you have no set standard, no authority other than yourselves. So your belief is no more valid than one who denies the divinity of Christ or doesn't believe in His miracles or that believes that the Holy Spirit is feminine. You have the same authority......yourselves.
It is actually the fallible Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church that needs to be condemned because it is NOT Christ's church, nor is it any part of it - especially the Magisterium. The true and everlasting "church" of Jesus Christ" is OWNED BY JESUS - it was purchased with HIS own blood - and what HE owns, HE protects. Christ is also called the head of the church (Eph 5:23) and since HE is it's head, it is HIS prerogative to protect it - it is NOT the prerogative of finite human beings being profusely paid for taking up space in a world-wide iniquitous religious organization.
