And the faith and doctrines in orthodoxy have never changed for nearly 2000 years, so it is the only Infallible Church of God?
I am trying to wrap my head around your agreement when we have just be discussing the departure from the teaching on martial relationships from that of the Fathers. Marriage is a sacrament, should not the teaching on it be consistent?
It is. Yet it is the RCC which has ben inconsistent and has made new dogmas.
Which "new dogmas" has the RCC created about the Sacrament of Marriage?
Seems to me like they have. Maybe you can convince me otherwise. Anullments are pretty odd.
There are different understandings of marriage in east and west. We stop at three. You keep going, at least for emperors.
I didn't realize that annulments were dogma. Are they? I do know that they are not marriage.
According to Catholic dogma, the essential properties of marriage are unity and indissolubility.
A marriage validly contracted and consummated is binding until death separates the spouses.
“There is no such thing as the annulment of a consummated sacramental marriage. The expression
is sometimes used inaccurately for the declaration of nullity of a union reputed to be a marriage but which
upon examination is proved not to have been such.”2 It’s important for us to understand that there is
no such thing as “an annulment” of a consummated marriage, but only a declaration of nullity
that a certain union never was a marriage to begin with if there is clear-cut evidence proving that
a particular union was not validly contracted.
You're the one that stated that the RCC made new dogmas about marriage, so please show us, with citations, what those are.
Yes, annulments are pretty odd, and not always easily understood. The whole concept of them kind of makes me squirm very uncomfortably, but they're not a dogma of the Church, afaik. In the grand scheme of things, I suppose that one could say that they are a form of Catholic oikonomia. And, since there are no emperors any longer....
