Papal Sin: Structures of Deceit by Garry Wills
Papal Sin: Structures of Deceit

nmgirl, January 1, 2011

I personally have no idea what it will take for the hierarchy of the Church to become honest and truthful. The lack of transparency and the need to continue to cover up mistakes does nothing to instill the confidence and trust one would expect to have for the Church.
I guess I do have a suggestion for a starting place. I suggest that the Church begin to act on and follow Jesus' original teachings, written in in his language (Aramaic?), very clear and simple. King James, Constantine and all the others who have chosen the books to be included in the bible, and have dictated what those books in the bible say, were humans, like you and me, they had no special skills or presence to make the changes they did nor was there any need for them to create the hierarchy in the first place.
