Thank you for the summary. I see mention of that 2nd vatican thing all the time. I must point out though I know you are tired of hearing it, that this is all RC tradition since my point all along has been that there is no RC type priesthood in the bible nor in Christianity for a the Church/Body of Christ.
Yes the RC defined priesthood is a very important thing to the RC ...um...faith. Hence my continuing complaint. It just shouldn't be so.
In Mt 16:18 and Jn 1:42 Simon Peter is renamed Rock and in Mt 16:18 te reason for the name is given, to become the foundation of Christ's Church.
In Mt 16:10 Peter alone is given the keys with which to bind and loose things on earth. Christ promises that what Peter legislates on earth will be followed in heaven.
In Jn 21:15-18 Peter alone receives the pastoral duty to feed and guide Christ's sheep.
Please. Where is the other rock? The episode starts with Peter's profession of faith, Christ in return calls him rock, and the foundation of the Church because of his faith, and give him the keys. Your interpretation is extra-scriptural.
Should be Mt 16:19.
This reminds me of my pre-believing days when my wife and I were typical ELCA Lutherans (going through the motions on Sunday mornings). We actually came very close to taking our infant nephew to be baptized (to save his soul, LOL). His atheist parents would have had a cow.
A Catholic priest would not have allowed that. The requirement is that at least one parent should desire the baptism. That is because it is the will of the parent, not of the baby, that presents the child to Christ.
I'll add my 'amen' to that. ;)

I guess I missed something, eh? I did notice we have some suspended or banned Freepers around here.
Oh, well, gotta go mow the yard. God bless us every one.
Until this moment, I was totally oblivious to it. If I had to guess, it's the usual suspect(s) of late.
"Around here" as in "in this thread"?
I give up. Who's been suspended or banned?
Hey, 'Wonk, check this out when you get back:

Rumor has it there are many such casualties in the Religion forum lately. I wonder what happened.
I'm sure curious as to what kind of comments were removed.
