Protestants and Papal Decrees

"God is not the author of confusion" claims Paul in 1 Cor 14:33 [KJV]. I guess either Paul was wrong, the Pope is wrong, or all those Protestants out there are wrong (Of Course, it also could be that God just doesn't know what he is doing, but still thinks He does...)

On Tuesday, the grand poohbah himself, Pope Benedict XVI, approved a document stating that protestants were not a part of the Church of Jesus Christ (not to be confused with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, i.e. the Mormons). See the news article regarding this decree here.

It must be tough being a Christian, yet not knowing if your church is the One True beacon into heaven.

I mean it would be a real shame to believe, yet still wind up in hell with all us atheists. Too bad all that "non-confusion" of the Bible isn't just a little less confusing, then there would be no need for so many conflicting views and doctrines of Christianity. I mean, fear of eternal damnation from a God who is so vengeful that he would condemn a woman to hell for eternity for the "sin" of wearing a gold wedding ring to church is not someone to be trifled with when it comes to choice of church to attend.
