Poche, while the scripture you included is correct it is an incomplete view of the Bible and Jesus' promise. When Peter, the first Pope, made an error and caused scandal Paul called him out for his error. Galatians 2:11-15.

http://drbo.org/chapter/55002.htm

[11] But when Cephas was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed. [12] For before that some came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles: but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them who were of the circumcision. [13] And to his dissimulation the rest of the Jews consented, so that Barnabas also was led by them into that dissimulation. [14] But when I saw that they walked not uprightly unto the truth of the gospel, I said to Cephas before them all: If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of the Gentiles, and not as the Jews do, how dost thou compel the Gentiles to live as do the Jews? [15] We by nature are Jews, and not of the Gentiles sinners.

[11] "I withstood": The fault that is here noted in the conduct of St. Peter, was only a certain imprudence, in withdrawing himself from the table of the Gentiles, for fear of giving offence to the Jewish converts; but this, in such circumstances, when his so doing might be of ill consequence to the Gentiles, who might be induced thereby to think themselves obliged to conform to the Jewish way of living, to the prejudice of their Christian liberty. Neither was St. Paul's reprehending him any argument against his supremacy; for in such cases an inferior may, and sometimes ought, with respect, to admonish his superior.

Jesus' promise never mentioned that Pope would be inerrant and it is the duty of the members of the Church to correct when the Pope is in error or causes scandals as the above scripture shows.
Peace....it came to my mind also that when certain individuals or groups did not accept Jesus' teaching and left Him, He did not call them back or conform to what they wanted - there was no negotiating going on or compromises so everyone could be inclusive.  It was His teaching or leave.....we aren't doing that now and its led to a huge mess!  God bless, angeltime :heart:
