    The Bishop of Rome is one of the primary factors that sets Roman and Eastern Catholics apart from all other Christian denominations. Most Christians who are not in communion with Rome reject the papacy as a valid authority over the entire Christian church. The most common objection towards the papacy is the perception that the pope takes away from the glory of Christ. The objection can be answered consistently and biblically with careful assessment.

    Correct interpretation

    The dilemma one encounters in understanding the prophecy about Eliakim as “the fall of the papacy” is that the prophecy actually says that the entire house will fall with the unfastened peg. If you b are not Catholic and view overseers as pastors, this prophecy would mean that the entire office of pastor would fail and also that all churches would cost tumbling down with it.

    On the other hand, of you recognized the prophecy as being addressed to the papacy, then you have acknowledged that the entire household of God is fastened through the keys of Peter. If that’s the case, then the entire New Testament church falls since it’s fastened on the office of royal steward and overseers. Scripture tells us otherwise. The household of God is the pillar of truth, and hell will not prevail against it (1 Timothy 3:15, Matthew 16:18).

    Stay tuned for part 2.

    Curious as to why Isaiah 22 was never used by proponents of the modern papacy until very recently.
