Some thoughts from Jay Dyer worth considering on the direction the Bishop of Rome has taken over the last 1,000-1,200 years or so:
-As the Great Schism neared (1054), the Bishop of Rome began claiming headship over the whole Church.
-In the centuries afterwards, the Pope then claimed primacy over political rulers.
-Now after Vatican II, he will seek to make himself head of the world’s different religions.
These thoughts and others are fleshed out in a couple of good talks:
Roman Catholicism is not the safe haven for tradition the South needs.
But Protestantism is no safer. To wit, a down-to-earth discussion of the problems with Protestant presuppositions like sola Scriptura:
Come home to the Orthodox Church, Southron, where you will find rest for your weary, seeking souls.
Holy Ælfred the Great, King of England, South Patron, pray for us sinners at the Souð, unworthy though we are!
Anathema to the Union!
