comment Does Catholicism confound the role of “elder” and “priest”?
@cur, I probably should use the word order instead of office I think. I really don't know the difference, I think an office is what you're appointed to and an order is who you are and it's pretty clear there is an order of bishops presbyter and deacons in the NT. And priests in the OT. So what if a priest is a priest and a presbyter and er call him a priest and a bishop is a priest and an episcopos and we call him a bishop - so long as we don't call deacons priests.

comment Does Catholicism confound the role of “elder” and “priest”?
@h3b until recently Cardinals didn't have to be Bishops and even St. Nicholas was a Bishop without ever being a priest. St. Thomas Beckett was a bishop elevated (under strange circumstances) from sub deacon. So if I'm right about elders and cardinals, there might be something to go on, i don't suppose either of those word have their roots in the word for "hinge"?

comment How long did it take to form the Biblical canon?
@cur I'm more interested in the first 300 or so years of Christianity, but not in a Marcion of Sinope way. It would be good to know what the criteria were for admitting scripture into the Canon for the Hebrews too.

comment What is the status of Catholics who reject Vatican II? Are they considered heretics?
@protestants, this is really a good question because there appears to be a lot of deceit in those sedevacantist movements and this might be all the person asking the question even can know about what they're talking about.

Was hoping this -> ncbcenter.org/page.aspx?pid=1282 would provide an answer, it doesn't but you might still want to check it out.

comment What is the history and explanation as to why the “diaconate” was MIA in the Western Church over a certain period of time?
Our bishop re-abolished the permanent deaconate hereabouts. He didn't get rid of current deacons, but he did end training new ones. Maybe it was just making something local, universal.
