Dedicated to The 185th Annual Meeting of The Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) - (SBC) & The Virginia Baptist Mission Board who not only featured the mystical emergent Tony Campolo but also the ecumenical Dr. David Coffey, President, Baptist World Alliance ( BWA ).
The late Robert Webber, like many emergent leaders, was trying to differentiate between Roman Catholicism and Catholicism (as a universal body). However, the Roman Catholic Church does not make this distinction because they claim an apostolic succession of papacy (popes) beginning with the apostle Peter.
Therefore all Catholicism is Roman Catholicism. Some in the emerging church do not show an attachment to the authority of the papacy but embrace the practices and early history of the Catholic Church.
