When the Pope contradicts Holy Scripture

When the Catholic is confronted with a contradiction between what a man says and what Holy Scripture says, particularly when referencing the New Testament and the Apostles of Our Lord Jesus Christ, follow the Apostles.

Even if that man is the Bishop of Rome himself.

The Pope cannot ever contradict Holy Scripture. The Pope cannot ever command that you listen to him when he contradicts Holy Scripture. If you believe that he can, which may the the case if you earn pennies from Patheos, then you are suffering a delusion and are practicing papolatry.

When confronted with the Holy Scriptures you cannot argue the point.

For the best this week on the matter.

Bishop Mercy of Laodicea to the Apostle Paul. Grace and peace to you.

I was recently sent a copy of your first letter to the Corinthians and I have a few matters I would like to address with you.

I marvel at your conception of God when you say:
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple. ” (1 Cor. 3:16-17)
Beloved Apostle of God, do you not know that God is a God of love and not wrath? He simply is too merciful to “destroy” a person. You would do well to learn that God loves his children so much that he does not condemn them.

I am even more disturbed by the threats you leveled against the Corinthians, saying:
Some of you have become arrogant, as if I were not coming to you. But I will come to you very soon, if the Lord is willing, and then I will find out not only how these arrogant people are talking, but what power they have. For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power. What do you prefer? Shall I come to you with a rod of discipline, or shall I come in love and with a gentle spirit?” (1 Cor. 4:18-21)
Oh dear apostle, don’t you know that we must not use such harsh language, but must accompany such individuals on their “faith journey”?
