You're rightI know.
as St. Peter founded no such office as supreme pontiffOf course not. Christ did.
nor did he receive it from Christ.
His legitimate successor and his legitimate posterity still exist in Antioch.A schismatic cannot be a successor to an Apostle.
In Rome the Vatican killed them, adulterated the Faith and spawned pretenders. That office stlll exists in the Vatican to this day, but it doesn't reach back to St. Peter's day.Now you've lost me. Killed who? How can a city-state kill someone or adulterate or spawn anything?
The "spawn" business is a joke on Isa actually. I've been waiting for someone to catch it.
IF the Catholic Church spawned schismatics then it is also the source of every other sinner in the Church, because evil spawns evil.
What does that say about all of the various schismatic groups of Orthodoxy's spawn?
Like the Vatican?
Isaiah 1:2 Hear, O ye heavens, and give ear, O earth, for the Lord hath spoken. I have brought up children, and exalted them: but they have despised me.
3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib: but Israel hath not known me, and my people hath not understood.
4 Woe to the sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a wicked seed, ungracious children: they have forsaken the Lord, they have blasphemed the Holy One of Israel, they are gone away backwards.
5 For what shall I strike you any more, you that increase transgression? the whole head is sick, and the whole heart is sad.
6 From the sole of the foot unto the top of the head, there is no soundness therein: wounds and bruises and swelling sores: they are not bound up, nor dressed, nor fomented with oil.
7 Your land is desolate, your cities are burnt with fire: your country strangers devour before your face, and it shall be desolate as when wasted by enemies.
8 And the daughter of Sion shall be left as a covert in a vineyard, and as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, and as a city that is laid waste.
.and then what does that say about Orthodox Sinners...as spawn of the many and varied Orthodox churches....
Save One, everyone in the Orthodox Church is a sinner.
What goes around comes around if you don't think it through.
