I am so thankful for brothers who are digging deep and exposing the new crop of Roman Catholic apologists, providing in-depth and historically accurate rebuttals of the vain attempts to substantiate the mythology of modern Rome’s claims. Both John Bugay and Turretinfan are posting a series of blog articles that, if you deal with Rome’s apologists regularly, you need to read. John is responding to Scott Windsor, one of the first of Rome’s representatives I engaged, more than twenty years ago now. Here is his current installment. TurretinFan is addressing a topic I have commented on many times: to any honest reading of the facts, Rome’s Papal claims hang suspended in mid-air, the foundation used to raise the edifice of papal power having been washed away by the facts of history long ago. This is true in so many ways, but in this article he addresses the myth of “apostolic succession.” We constantly hear about the “2,000 year old church,” and this is often equated with the Papacy. But there are so many holes in this “succession” that one is truly left wondering exactly what is being traced through history. From the non-monarchical episcopate at Rome for the century to Imperial and political interference in the choice of the bishop of Rome to the anti-popes to the Pornocracy to the Avignon Papacy—how can anyone seriously claim this is a divine succession, given by God to guarantee uninterrupted truth and transmission of tradition? Yet, men and women continue to show their true spiritual pedigree by falling under the sway of false religions, including that of Romanism. Here is TurretinFan’s current article.
