Council of Ephesus (Ecumenical III)…

…judges Francis’ idea that Christians and Muslims share the same faith

  • All heretics corrupt the true expressions of the Holy Spirit

[…] but should remember that the followers of every heresy extract from inspired scripture the occasion of their error, and that all heretics corrupt the true expressions of the Holy Spirit with their own evil minds and they draw down on their own heads an inextinguishable flame. (Council of Ephesus. Letter from Cyril to John of Antioch concerning peace, 431)

…judges Francis’ idea that the Pope should not judge

  • Peter lives and judges in his successors up to this moment and always

No one doubts, but rather it has been known to all generations, that the holy and most blessed Peter, chief and head of the Apostles, the pillar of the faith, the foundation stone of the Catholic church, received the keys of the kingdom from our Lord Jesus Christ the Savior and Redeemer of the human race, and that the power of binding and loosing sins was given to him, who up to this moment and always lives in his successors, and judges. (Denzinger 112. Council of Ephesus (431), Ecumenical III, from the speech of Philip the Roman legate)
