Pope Francis: Wrong Can Suddenly Become True

Pope Francis: Wrong Can Suddenly Become True

en.news

Pope Francis’ statement on death penalty contradicts what the Church taught from her beginnings until John Paul II according to P.J. Smith on First Things [POPE FRANCIS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF DOCTRINE].

On October 11, Pope Francis called death penalty “per se contrary to the Gospel”. He even claimed that the Church’s doctrine can be “clearly contrary” to a “new understanding of Christian truth”.

According to Smith this shows that Francis believes, “that authentic developments can correct, not corroborate, the body of thought from which they proceed.”

  1. If Francis can correct what was once believed, can a future pope correct Francis? If so, where does it all end? Can we ever know doctrine at all?

    I’ve looked at doctrine from both sides now
    From up and down, and still somehow
    It’s doctrine’s illusions I recall
    I really don’t know doctrine at all
