Description

Against Papal Infallibility

In 1984 Canada joined the growing number of nations to have the doubtful distinction of a papal visit conferred upon it. In recent years Pope Paul II has travelled the world in the panoply of papal splendor armed with the unscriptural, unreasonable and illogical doctrine of apapl infallibility.
The First Vatican Council of the Roman Catholic institution was held in 1869-1870. It was this Council which declared the pope to be infallible - incapable of error in matters of faith and morals when speaking 'ex cahtedra', in the exercise of his office. However, the doctrine was not promulgated without opposition from within the ranks of the Roman hierarchy, and several dignitaries spoke against its acceptance, a fact not advertised by Rome.
One of the leaders of the opposition was the scholarly Josip Juraj Strossmayer (1815-1905), Bishop of Djakovo in Croatia. In the Vatican Council Strossmayer took a strong and scriptural stand against papal infallibility and his speech represents a concise summary of many of the arguments used today to show the unscriptural nature of the papacy and its pretentious claims. Like Luther, Strossmayer fearlessly exposed the unbiblical grounds of the papacy.
