I was born a Catholic, baptized when I was an infant. I served well form childhood, was a sacristan and have been active in the so called Block Rosary and other related religious neighborhood activities. However as I mature, there are doubts that cloud my fidelity to the church. Among several of them is the supposed INFALLIBILITY of the pope when proclaiming a dogma. What do you think about this?

All doctrine of the catholic is not found in the bible, my friend. There are many reason for you to doubt about that. Even me when I was kid I am active in the catholic church but when I start reading the bible that began my mind to doubt about the doctrine of the catholic church. The bible said that worshiping image is against the words of God, but the catholic church doing it.

No wonder, it was a crime to own a bible in the middle ages so they could hide their man-made doctrines. The rosary for instance is against the bible. read this: "When you pray, don't babble on and on as people of other religions do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again." Matthew 6:7

Webster's Bible Translation Matthew 6:7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.

Yup! All things that impose of the priest is against the bible or the words of God. We can't blame people who are following such church because they too, being deceived by the doctrine. If the priest didn't hide the content of the bible with us. I think we are finding the truth and not following the wrong doctrine?

Mankind has their hand deep into religion. What they claim comes from God more than often does not. Indeed, you better question everything. God will always add up!! I think you have already figured this out!

Example: The Catholic Church in 1969 removed forty from it's list of saints, who for years/centuries have been venerated by it's members (include me) after they were canonized by infallible popes; then amended (that they are not saints) by another infallible pope in 1969. Wouldn't it be that only the insane think this isn't silly? Don't be silly...

being infallible doesn't necessary mean that he is never wrong. it actually says that whatever he says, you have to take it on faith that it is never wrong. such was one of the many propagandas to make the organization somewhat unquestionable. well, it is somewhat hard to explain a whole belief in just one sitting. probably over time, you could hear more and choose if you still believe in religion or not. you would be tagged as a sinner if you doubt, though. =)

One early pope canonized Saint Nicholas then centuries later, a modern pope removed that saint from the lists of saints. Who was infallible, the earlier pope or the modern pope...? Rubbish!!

Why dogma existed until now? It could be nothing to do with the Holy Spirit, but because of the teachings of which are developed / adopted is a good system of universal as the movement of universal morality which is received without any divine intervention. Sorry the answer be different but this is a logic
