Catholicism isn't apostolic!

re: Papal Primacy?
By Douglas S. Winnail

Is there an unbroken “apostolic succession” of Roman bishops extending from Peter to the present Pope Benedict XVI? What does history reveal about long-standing claims of special authority for the Bishop of Rome?


The popes, bishops, and anyone else associated with Catholicism are not apostolic and never was. The original church was birthed in Jerusalem. Catholicism didn’t even enter the picture until the late third century, early fourth century. In 325 A.D. a new doctrine was written at the Council of Nicea. Just like in the days of Jesus and the first century apostles, the rulers of the day tried to stamp out the name of Jesus and commanded the apostles NOT to preach or teach in this name! (Acts 4 & 5:17-42)
