The Shocking Truth About the Pope and the Bible
Ready for some rock-solid apologetics on the scriptural foundation of the papacy?
Tim Staples is out to prove that the beliefs of the Catholic Church are rooted in Scripture. He accomplishes this task to resounding effect in The Shocking Truth about the Pope and the Bible on the subject of perhaps most heated debate between Catholics and Protestants: papal authority.
"It must be understood that the bishop is in the Church and the Church in the bishop and he is not in the Church who is not with the bishop."
~ St. Cyprian of Carthage, bishop, martyr; in early writings (Epist., lxvi, 8; circa A.D. 250), noting that a man was rightly considered in schism when he disregarded the authority of his own bishop.
