Why do some Sadducees still hate The First Pope and Catholic Bishops?

Catholics make the connection between Father Abraham and Peter, The First Holy Father of The One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church Spoken Into Being by He Who Fulfilled The Prophecies

Question 1 is interesting: “Why did some Sadducees hate The First Pope and Catholic Bishops enough to kill them?”

Answer:  “Sadducees are perfectly named because they are ‘sad, you see’.  They did not believe people have immortal souls that would go to Judgment and spend eternity in either Heaven or hell.   When The First Pope and Catholic Bishops told people we have souls that would go to God’s Judgment, Acts 5:27-33 tells that some Sadducees felt threatened:

‘When the court officers had brought the Apostles in and made them stand before the Sanhedrin, the high priest questioned them:  ‘We gave you strict orders did we not, to stop teaching in That Name.  Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and want to bring this man’s blood upon us.’


Question 2:  “Did they hate The First Pope and Catholic Bishops as much as the Chaldeans hated Abraham and his family nearly 2,000 years earlier because they would not worship popular idols?”

Answer:  “The First Pope and Catholic Bishops said the same thing to the Sadducees that Abraham and his family had told idol-worshipping Chaldeans!   ‘But Peter and the Apostles said in reply, ‘We must obey God rather than men.’   

Then, they described The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit in an early vision of The Holy Trinity!  ‘The God of our ancestors (The Father!) raised Jesus, (The Son!) though you had Him killed by hanging Him on a tree.  God exalted Him at His right hand as leader and savior to grant Israel repentance and forgiveness of sins.  We are witnesses of these things, as is The Holy Spirit Whom God has given to those who obey Him.’


Question 3:  “How did the Sadducees respond to this early idea of The Holy Trinity?”

Answer:  “‘When they heard this, they became infuriated and wanted to put them to death.’


Question 4:  “How do Catholics connect The Catholic Church Spoken Into Being by This Word of Jesus with Abraham?  ‘And I say unto you thou art Peter and on this rock I build My Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.  I give you the keys to The Kingdom of Heaven.’?”


Answer:  “Abraham became ‘The Father of a Multitude’ because he obeyed God.  Peter was chosen from half a billion men on earth.  Jesus Christ, The Son of God, chose Peter as ‘The First Holy Father’ of the largest ‘multitude’ in History:  billions and billions of Roman Catholic believers over the past 2,000 years!”


Question 5:  “Does Today’s Reading tell us how important it is to obey The Church-Creating Word of Jesus?”

Answer:  “Today’s Gospel is from John 3:31-36.  It concludes with this warning to never leave His Church!  ‘Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him.’
