Over 60 Scripture references in this letter, making up about a half of it, and which make him sound more like Puritan than a RC.
And let us not forget how Ignatius greeted Polycarp!:
Ignatius, who is [also called] Theophorus, to Polycarp, bishop of Smyrna, or rather, who has as his own bishop God the Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ: [wishes] abundance of happiness. (Epistle to Polycarp)
So much for the Papacy!
So he forgot to remind the disciples to submit to successors of Peter as the supreme infallible head, or even to make that a commendation or a remedy, which Paul and even the Lord failed to do in their letters to the various churches. Not very faithful RCs.
