95 Theses: Thesis 78

by PastorWilliams on June 25th, 2017

“We say, on the contrary, that even the present pope, and any pope at all, has greater graces at his disposal; to wit, the Gospel, powers, gifts of healing, etc., as it is written in I. Corinthians xii.”

I believe part of the idea of the Pope’s elevation over St. Peter and even Jesus comes from Jesus’ statement to Nathanael in John 1:50: “You will see greater things than these.”

This Apostolic promise was made about the Apostles. This promise was in response to Nathanael’s surprise about Jesus’ omniscience. It does not mean that Christians will be able to do greater things than the Apostles had seen. There are no higher gifts than the Gospel and spiritual gifts. These are given by God. No one can give any greater gifts.
