Pope Says Word of God Lives on in Traditions

This is a good graphic summing up this post.




Word of God lives on in Church tradition, Pope reminds Biblical Commission


In a message to the Pontifical Biblical Commission, Pope Benedict XVI has observed that “the Word of God is not confined to writing,” but has “continued to be announced and interpreted by the living tradition of the Church.”
While Revelation “ended with the death of the last apostle,” the Pope said, the Word of God is not “an inert matter” but rather the “life force” of the Church. Tradition, passed on from the apostles, “advances with the assistance of the Holy Spirit, and grows through reflection and study on the part of believers,” he said. 
For that reason, the Pope stressed in his message, it is important to study and understand the role of inspiration in the Scriptures—which was the topic of this week’s meeting of the Pontifical Biblical Commission. The Pope concluded that it is critical to interpret Scripture according to its proper nature, “and inspiration and truth are constituent characteristics of that nature.”



The satanically inspired Pope says the exact opposite of Jesus Christ.

Mat 15:3    But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?

One thing to notice about God's Word, is Jesus Christ Himself, told us "it is written", contrary to the words of the Pope above where he says, "the word of God is not confined to writing." [see the speech here]

Luk 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

Luk 4:8 And Jesus answered and said unto him, Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Luk 4:10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:

I have this to mention about the so-called "infallibility" of the pope. It's interesting to me that Peter was, according to their tradition, the first pope. If the pope is infallible, then presumably he would never say or do anything that is not God-inspired. However, Peter had to be confronted by Paul for acting in a certain manner and Peter acknowledged that he was wrong. If ANY pope would have been perfect in both actions and words, it would have been Peter, one of the original apostles. It just goes to show that we as humans are human and we will always act like simple human beings.

IMO, that's why the best thing is to always check scripture and anything that does not agree does not fly.

II Thessalonians 2:15:

Stand fast, Brethren, and hold to the Traditions you have been taught, whether by word, or by our letter.

Tradition is important. The Roman church decided to create new traditions, trying to mix the Tradition of men with the Tradition of God.

The Protestant thought to get rid of all traditions, divine and manmade, and thus fell to corruption. Only in true Paradosis ek Theo can one find truth
