In 1P5 Robert Siscoe uses "Church acceptance" as a prerequisite and as such proof that a person electet pope is so validly.
I use his reasoning to show that the Church cannot accept an anathema. Here is my comment to be found onepeterfive.com/dogmatic-fact-francis-pope/
Knowing absolute Truth implies detachment from human influence.
Humans are given an intellect to correctly perceive absolute truth.
Acts may imply excommunication. Humans are able to perceive those acts.
Excommmunicated cannot hold a funktion in the Church as they are not a part of the Body.
Absolute Truth exists. Humans are given an intellect to perceive it.
Acts may imply excommunication. Humans have an intellect to perceive those acts.
Excommunicated cannot hold a function in the Church as they are not a part of the Body.
Christians are obliged to follow the command: "But though we, or an angel from heaven, should preach unto you any gospel other than that which we preached unto you, let him be anathema" ( ASV, Galatians 1:8). No christian can accept an anathema so the "entire Church" cannot.
The Autor of the above article has gathered certain assertions along the line of his reasoning about the Church's accepting, only the heading must be different: "Dogmatic Fact: The One Doctrine that Proves why an Anathema cannot lead the Universal Church".
