Help me out with thoughts on this-
It just came to me that my agony over weather I lied to God/RCC---
My priest also "lied" to me- (God forgive me for saying that) but,
maybe he did not mean to - but it is still a lie.
I told him I was hesitant to convert to RCC for many reasons-
for the sake of brevity I will only hit the "low" points-
Primacy of the Pope-
His answer was (basically exploiting my stupidity) and telling me that many protestants are simply ignorant about the role. He is merely a "Proud PAPPA" that loves his children and wants what is best for them.
I read a lot more RCC reading material later that in fact - proves him to be a sugar coater on that one:(
But, this was really not the "big bone of contention" at that point since I had no idea about the next "lie?" he told me...
He said that that was why there have been "Antipopes" and that is how things get handeld eventually.
I later found out through RCC material that an "Antipope" is only called such in an electoral error!!!!!
Then I asked him, if there have been "bad" guy Popes, and they were not discipilined-
were not the "gates of Hell" prevailed???
He said that I was (*&^%) yes you read that right- he swore at me and said that I had better pray real hard....
Anyway, a Jesuit priest in our parish is a nut job- he calls God "HE or SHE"
I think I want to throw up just recalling my question to him about that one.
He looked at me and said- you are thinking you know more than I do???
Who are you?
I cried and walked out... :'(
