Jesus said to them in reply, "
Those who are healthy do
not need a physician
, but the sick do. I have not come to
call the righteous to repentance but sinners."
He heard this and said, "
Those who are well do not
need a physician
, but the sick do."
The moral miracle of the "bad Popes" is that they were worldly
men, public sinners, and never functioned as spiritual leaders
nor touched or changed the deposit of faith of Christianity.
We are reminded by the Lord even to the present day that the
lifestyle of the messenger does not alter the validity of the
message. Recall the American Televangelists' scandals in
1987 and 1988.
