Vatican Dogma by Bulgakov
« on: April 22, 2003, 12:20:22 AM »
Friends,

The Vatican Dogma

This is the work titled The Vatican Dogma by Bulgakov.  This is a polemical tract written by the emminent ecumenist which is why I thought it interesting (sort of a paradox) although the introduction explains its intentions.  This is a polite but firm response to the Papal Infallibility doctrine.  I hope it will generate some discussion, both pro- and con-.  I am in the midst of putting the rest of the text up but wanted to give you all the opportunity to see it in its first steps.  Also be on the lookout for superfluous dashes in the text which might be indicative of an error in my automatic coding utility.

Sincerely in Christ,

anastasios

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.

As a result of a thousand million years of evolution, the universe is becoming conscious of itself, able to understand something of its past history and its possible future.

Very interesting piece.
St Basil the Great (330-379 A.D.): “I think then that the one goal of all who are really and truly serving the Lord ought to be to bring back to union the churches who have at different times and in diverse manners divided from one another.”
