“The Pope is of great authority and power that he can modify, explain, or interpret even divine laws... The Pope can modify divine law, since his power is not of man, but of God, and he acts as vicegerent of God upon earth." -Lucius Ferraris, Prompta Ribliotheca, " Papa," Part. 2, translated.
"The Pope has the power to change times, to abrogate [to abolish, do away with, or annul] laws, and to dispense with all things, even the precepts of Christ." Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. Cap. (The Pope can modify divine law.) Ferraris' Ecclesiastical Dictionary.
What God said
"I acknowledge my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the Lord; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah" (Psalm 32:5).
The belief of confessing to a man is about effective as the powerless water baptism the roman catholic church has made mankind believe just like all the other LYING doctrines all 'Christian' denominations took with them when they >>>SHOT OFF<<< from that LYING "WHORE" (Revelation 17:5)!
With the belief in a 3 headed god called a "trinity" (I Corinthians 12:6)
With the belief in setting up "tables" as they did under the "FIRST COVENANT" (Hebrews 9:1-2)
With the belief in a powerless water baptism (Matthew 28:19) although Jesus said "Holy Spirit baptism" (Acts 1:5) gives "POWER" (Acts 1:8) with Ephesians 4:5 saying "one baptism" and Jesus told us which "one" in Acts 1:5!
The "WHORE" (Revelation 17:5) KILLED everyone who claims Christianity today because mankind believes all of that SHYT!
They're just skipping on down the "wide road to destruction" (Matthew 7:13-14) believing I'm saved by "grace alone through faith alone" and DON'T HAVE EITHER!
