The Church Cannot Teach Error, Because She Was Founded by Jesus Christ, Who is God Himself

The Church has no fear of being on the “wrong side of history”, for her Bridegroom is seated at the right hand of the Father.

I do not suggest that in the long view the universal Church won’t correct its course or correct a theological error after a merry stroll down the cultural lane but our Church’s long experience and that of today surely shows that we can proclaim and live out error for a while.  (Silence from Rome demonstrates agreement with this statement)

If the princes of the Church can declare and demand obedience to error without the Vatican providing a correction what else are we to believe?  Are the Bishop’s to be considered outside the Church?  I haven’t heard anyone say so.

I understand the desire to calm fears as if we were children in a storm but as those with an adult faith we should steel ourselves for the long haul and understand this correction might take a lifetime and another Trent Council to correct.  We need to weather the storm with resolve and fierce faith.  Like those in a tornado, just hunker down and ride it out.
