I have seen several times on these forums where people have shown the pope to be wrong about certain things. Then they claimed that that showed papal infallacy was bunk.
but then, Catholics would jump to the rescue of the pope and say that papal infallacy has to be "invoked" otherwise the pope can say or do some things that are wrong.
so the question is, why doesn't the pope just invoke papal infallacy and leave it on? Does he want to be wrong at times? Does god want him to be wrong at times. if you really have the power of invoking infallibility then why not just use that power ALL THE TIME? Why take the chance of doing or saying something wrong that can lead millions of devote catholics astray when all you have to do is use the power of infallibility?
Why does the pope take a chance at being wrong when he has the power to be right all the time if he would just use it? Shouldn't we use the abilities god has given us? If so, then why doesn't the pope?
