In the context of my previous statement, you do not believe Christ has a vicar on earth that speaks with absolute authority like we Catholics do. Pinning down Orthodox theology and discipline is like trying to pin down a tomato seed on your plate.Michał Kalina said:I'm saying He is Supreme Pontiff of the Universal Church.domNoah said:Are you saying that our Lord Jesus Christ is the author of the disunity between the Orthodox on their own disciplines?Michał Kalina said:Really?domNoah said:The Orthodox Communions do not have central leadership like the Roman Catholic Church, you must remember that Orthodox practicing inter communion has not always happened. There is no Eastern Orthodox Pope, saying what the whole Orthodox Church is going to allow or not allow.
Jesus is not the author of confusion that exists on birth control in your own ranks. While most Catholics are bad on Birth Control there is no confusion at a theological level that it is wrong and the discussion on it is closed.
