The notion of “apostolic succession” in the earliest sources is not that of Roman Catholicism.
I disagree with the Roman Catholic understanding of ecclesial tradition and hierarchy, as well as with the doctrine of the Eucharist.
A brief overview of a few points of difference between my own thinking and that of Roman Catholicism.
Irenaeus does not consider agreement with the theology of the church of Rome to be an absolute principle of theology for all times.
Being a Christian means believing the good news that Jesus brings. This means believing that things can be better than they are now.
God’s feelings toward us are certain, but we should be mindful our where our own hearts lie.
Making atonement for sinners and reconciling them with God is the very identity of Jesus.
In Jesus God provides us with an advocate whose intercession He will never refuse.
The measure of every human tradition is for Jesus the word that comes from God’s mouth.
