Would the Pope Be Infallible If He Became Orthodox?
The Pope is infallible because he is orthodox.
The real question is, would the Orthodox be infallible if they followed the Pope?
And the answer is: drum roll
Nobody is infallible without the Holy Spirit and the Church....
Wow! A full frontal assault on papal infallibility from a Byzantine Catholic!
From the infallible definition: "...and consequently that such definitions of the Roman Pontiff are irreformable of their own nature (ex sese) and not by reason of the Church's consent."
"It should be observed in conclusion that papal infallibility is a personal and incommunicable charisma, which is not shared by any pontifical tribunal. It was promised directly to Peter, and to each of Peter's successors in the primacy, but not as a prerogative the exercise of which could be delegated to others."
Not really. Since his is the court of LAST resort, it is true that once he has consulted with his bishops and looked at the long tradition of the Church, in order to make his decision, THEN it cannot be overturned by current dissenting bishops or future bishops who say..."Welllll...maybe not..."...Kinda like a true universal council. Once it is done. It is done.
And yes, the Pope is the singularity that makes that decision when it is incumbent upon him to do so...and you should be very happy...because the latter paragraph says he can do so without catering to the Curia...I think that one is a good idea personally, but then maybe I am more familiar with the workings of the curia...eh?
No frontal assault Father. Just a good hard look at the reality of the teaching...as it is...not as the Orthodox try to feed it to me.
Your own logic missed an entire major premise but I am accustomed to that in discussions on primacy and infallibility.
