Eastern Orthodoxy's Fatal Flaw On Bishops & Ecumenical Councils

Lyons II and Florence attempted such re-union Councils. A prospective Nicaea III has been planned for 2025, and there also are some efforts to commemorate 2033 in a big way by all Christian Churches together. I have hope for both gatherings. I pray Our Lord intervenes to make His Church One.

This was already achieved at Lyons and Florence with the highest degree of solemnity.

However, after assenting to the decisions of an Ecumenical Council of the Church, the Eastern churches quickly turned their backs on it, just "as a dog that returneth to his vomit" (Pro. 26:11).

Regardless of the questions surrounding traditional Catholicism and the interpretation of Vatican II, the critique stands.

The Eastern Orthodox "reception theory" is an ahistorical and unworkable methodology that has essentially robbed the Church of God of Her authority to govern the flock.

The infallible “Chair of Peter” is nowadays very amorphous

The Papacy is equally as subjective as the amorphous concept of “Tradition” - let’s not also forget the irony of this video being made by Sedevacantists who recognize Papal authority until it debatably contradicted Papal authority

You can say that “well it’s less subjective considering that we can recognize councils” - ignoring the fact that many Catholics here don’t recognize Vatican II, it doesn’t mean much when the theological authority is still ambiguous.

Good luck explaining whether the death penalty is immoral or not, or whether adulterers May receive communion

There 277 infallible prouncements you can look the up.
