I think I should maybe make it clear that my comment was not based off of that reason.
Getting older, I am finding it easier to admit faults and sins, even to be told by hypocrites that I have them. No problem there. It’s rather helpful, whomever God has to do it. I am reminded of the Biblical account of Shimei, the son of Gera, who cursed and cast stones upon king David and his company. I will never forget David’s response. It was the right attitude to have. God can use anyone to correct us, if we need correcting, even a hypocrite.
No man is my moral teacher. God is.
Welcome to FR, Honey.
How does God teach you?
Does this mean that you do not accept religious instruction from any pastor, minister, priest, or other person who is closer to the Lord than you are? Or is it just that you do not grant that the Pope might have wisdom and veracity to offer on moral topics?
