Antipope John Paul II, Ecclesia in Europa, Post-Synodal Apost. Exhortation, June 28, 2003: “At the same time I wish to assure once more the pastors and our brothers and sisters of the Orthodox Churches that the new evangelization is in no way to be confused with proselytism, without prejudice to the duty of respect for truth, for freedom and for the dignity of every person.” (L’Osservatore Romano, July 2, 2003, p. V).
Comment: For the first installment of this “Heresy of the Week” category, I felt that it was appropriate to expose one of Antipope John Paul II’s worst heresies; namely, his consistent teaching that Catholics should not proselytize (i.e., try to convert) the “Orthodox.” For those who don’t know, the “Orthodox” are the Eastern Schismatic non-Catholics who reject the Papacy (and Papal Infallibility) and the last 13 dogmatic Councils of the Catholic Church. They also allow divorce and re-marriage, among other heresies. Yet here, we see Antipope John Paul II blatantly asserting that his new religion “is in no way to be confused with proselytism” (trying to convert them)! This means that Antipope John Paul II has no desire to convert the Eastern Schismatics. This is just one of many proofs that Antipope John Paul II holds that Catholics should not try to convert the non-Catholic members of the Schismatic Orthodox churches. And to assert that these heretics and schismatics should not be converted, as Antipope John Paul II and the Vatican consistently do, is to radically deny the dogma Outside the Catholic Church there is no salvation (obviously), in addition to the dogma on the necessity of the Papacy. It is easily one of Antipope John Paul II’s and the Vatican II sect’s worst heresies.
Pope Pius IX, Vatican Council I, Sess. 4, Chap. 3, ex cathedra: “Furthermore We teach and declare that the Roman Church, by the disposition of the Lord, holds the sovereignty of ordinary power over all others… This is the doctrine of Catholic truth from which no one can deviate and keep his faith and salvation.”
This infallible definition of Vatican I declares that anyone who deviates from dogma of the Papacy (that the Pope of Rome holds sovereign power in the Church of Christ), such as the Orthodox Schismatics, cannot keep his faith and salvation. Yet, Antipope John Paul II tells us that the Orthodox Schismatics not only can keep their faith and salvation while denying the Papacy, but should not believe in the Papacy! What a heretic!
