No I mean Catholics don`t understand what is in the Bible I talk to them and they don`t even understand what daniel 2;44 means.
Aain, you mean that Catholics don't hold JW beliefs about the meaning of Scripture.

They do know what's in the Bible.

Johnny, totally out there. Perhaps you should attend a Catholic Mass and visit the parishes to attend the ministries, some are for bible study. If the bible was taught at Mass, no one would show up. Mass is so we can praise the Lord and receive the Euchrist.
yes, catholics also like to enjoy the pleasantries that God created for us, it's called making love. something the JW are not allowed only if starting a family. no wonder you can state only 144,000 seats in heaven. crazy statement, never heard that one before.
is this true about the JW and making love?
I was A Catholic for 36 years and went to mass.

Jws only have sex when they are married to the person they are having sex with.

144,000 go to heaven the rest of saved mankind with live on earth.

Revelation 14:1
Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)
The Lamb and the 144,000

14 Then I looked, and lo, on Mount Zion stood the Lamb, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.

Matthew 5:5
Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)
5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Revelation 21:1
Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (RSVCE)
The New Heaven and the New Earth

21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.[a]

Footnotes:

21.1 Creation will be renewed one day, freed from corruption and illumined by God’s glory.

Which men, Johnny?

You won't choke to death or burst into flames if you tell the truth.

Which group of men, guided by the Holy Spirit, compiled the Bible?
