The saddest thing Anthony is that you are imitating Luther and you don't even see it. You are saying things like: I can decide matters reserved to the Church using my personal discernment. I will not submit to a Pope unless I feel personally that he is valid. These are not minor matters. These are important things that can separate you from the Church. These are in essence the two main errors of Luther. Non submission to authority, mainly the Pope, and personal discernment and interpretation of all things spiritual. It is nothing new really. It is the same old error of the devil's first rebellion when he said "Non serviam", "I will not serve". You are just dressing it up in modern clothes.
