Biblical Evidences for the Papacy from Obadiah

In my online research, I have come up with even more convincing proofs that our Holy Blessed Papacy is fully Biblical, this time, from Obadiah. [That's in the OT for you Prots out there.]

Try these on your Prot antagonists and DEFEND MOTHER CHURCH. Silence those hate-mongering victimizing Prots with these infallible arguments:

(1) The first letter of Obadiah is "O", which happens to be the second letter of "pope."

(2) Obadiah is in the Old Testament, and the papacy is clearly found in the Old Testament.

(3) Protestants are like Klan members if they can't see the papacy in Obadiah.

Absolutely foolproof. That Pedantic Protestant guy, by disagreeing, shows himself to be an anti-Catholic bigot, hatemonger, and he probably records television broadcasts of baseball without the express written consent of the Commissioner of Major League Baseball.

I'd drop 30 more names and 12 more books that I've read in the last 5 hours, but that would be lowering myself to your domain, and why bother with that? I'm too smart to deal with the likes of you.

This contains some good points. I would like to see you post on the fact that Prots are scared of reading the book of James.

Oh they are. They are. They've never adequately come to terms with it. They act as if words might be used in different senses by different authors writing in different contexts. They're not, obviously. A word means the same thing no matter when, where, and how it is used, context be damned.

That's just dishonest, and that's why they're stupid.

I'm a Protestant, and the Book of James is, if I can say I have favorites (they're all equal in my view ultimately), one of my favorite books of Holy Scripture. Always has been.

Roman Catholics, going solely on a comment by Luther, man-oriented as Roman Catholics intrinsically always are, think Protestants have a problem with the Book of James; but Protestants - especially Protestants who value the practical level of the faith (experimental Calvinism) - learn greatly from the Book of James (as we do from all of Scripture).

kathman, you need to get away from the Pedantic Papist and learn real doctrine. Immerse yourself in the Bible, and get a good, solid, systematic theology to get the basics. Start with J. I. Packer's Concise Theology. Then maybe acquire something fuller like Wayne Grudem's Systematic Theology. Both are very reader-friendly, and sound.

What Protestants are you thinking of? I'm a Protestant (of the Calvinist persuasion) who used to be RC and I like James just fine. Why wouldn't I?

My favorite RC argument is that Protestantism is a form of gnosticism since Protestants believe you should know Jesus.

Ah, but Protestantism is nothing more than gnosticism, radical individualism, anarchism, disunity, heresy, and pure hatred, all rolled up into one giant burrito of loony-bin insanity.

Tell 'em PedPap told you so.

Anarchy and individualism are bad, except when John Paul the Great and Benedict the Almost as Great permit liberals to run every seminary and university. That shows that we permit great freedom.

And did I mention those 28,743.7 denominations?

You left out a few zeroes, there, you whacked-out Prot:

You mean 287,437,000 denominations. Or, as I've read at other Catholic sites elsewhere, one denomination per Protestant.

Of course, compare those denominations with the ONENESS of the Roman Catholic Church. Jesus' prayer for unity is answered in us.

Who cares what Luther may have thought. HE'S A MAN. Fear God and revere God and follow God and learn from God's Word, kathman.

Anyway, Luther was just frustrated that Roman Catholics were exploiting the Book of James and playing to their willfully ignorant audience. Luther had been a Roman Catholic monk. He knew you Roman Catholics by scent.
