Church as infalible.


Can a group of people really claim to be infallible? This comes from the Catholic Catechism which I am studying for the (I really only know more that 6) time: Although individual members of the Church can err and even make serious mistakes, the Church as a whole can never fall away from God's truth. Well I am sorry. Yes it can. And if you do not believe me look to the inquisitions and crusades and modern wealth as opposed to saving lives. Believe me I want a church that gives all and loves in Christ's nature but statements like these made in 2013 are a problem. "the Church never erred"?

    I am not Catholic but I am catholic and my proposition is directly from catechism which I was charged in teaching as an ordinariate. "Church" infallibility is doctrine. Individuals within the church can fail.

    Today our lives are filled with phone ques and corporate matters. No one is anyone but a number. Notions of infallibility are best left for dark ages.

    I read you loud and clear retief2000 but who accepts responsibility. It is a "never me but....".
