Roma Locuta Est, Causa Finita Est
Mr. King posted a quote from St. Augustine on the NTRMin Discussion
Board. Scott Windsor posts another quote from St. Augustine showing
some more "Catholic" leanings, and challenges, "perhaps you should
think twice before quoting this great Catholic Saint again!
See Scott's Response
Undeniable proof that the Councils of Carthage and Mileve as well as
St. Augustine himself were yeilding to the Apostolic See, the Bishop
of Rome, as the authority that was capable of presenting a teaching
to ALL the Churches, unlike a single bishop or a local council (like
Carthage and Mileve) which can only regulate their local jurisdiction.
The following response was written on September 23, 2003 and posted
to the NTRMin Discussion board on
September 24, 2003, after Mr. King was citing modern commentaries to
support his contention that no emphasis was put on Rome, and that the
only reason these councils addressed Rome was due to the fact that
Pelagius came from Rome. It is true enough, Pelagius began teaching
his heresy in Rome - but the actual words from these councils render
Mr. King's arguments (and those modern commentaries) utterly untenable.

to the above scenario/article).
