I am going to guess it took you 45 minutes to type all that above, and I didn't read one word of it.<quoted text>
"Mr. Unbelievable" !!! The biblically and Historically PROVEN One True Apostolic Catholic Church is "not" in the numbers game. The 42,000+ "numbers game" all began at the Reformation as I will refresh your "ever so (blank and busted ) memory!!
Since the Protestant reformation in the 16th century, there has been an on-going of dividing, fracturing, and splintering of one denomination after another, who "have never", NOR "will ever"agree on (anything) regarding the (true authenticated and proven) interpretation of the bible handed down by the Early Church Fathers in 382,393 and 397 AD.---- We as Catholics,continue to embrace, hold fast and adhere to the "true interpretation of the bible" from which we all know that our Protestant brothers and sisters in Christ choose to rely upon their own on (anti-catholic) distorted, contradicting and conflicting "personal opinions" --as the "final authority" by rejecting the TRUTH handed down by Jesus Christ to His Apostles. Here is a partial list of the 42,000+ conflicting , inconsistent and contradicting "hodge-podge" of "personal opinionated" denominations since the beginning of the Reformation: This list does not include the small % of agnostics and atheists who, like most Protestants, rely on denying of over 2000 years of historical and biblical (proven truth) in order to keep their bible only (relative truth) beliefs intact"
.Luther (eliminated some original books of the bible)
2.Zwingli (eliminated and rejected the Eucharist)
3.Knox (threw out some of the Sacraments)
4.Wesley (each one rejected something to start a new denomination
5.Huss " " "

42,000.+ Whomever on this forum that we missed
ALL have their own "self appointed popes and EACH ONE rely upon "inventing and creating" their own " relative truth-- which is "predicated upon" and determined by (personal interpretation of the bible and by "whichever way the political or social wind blows"---- supporting ABORTION, GAY MARRIAGE, EMBROYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH, EUTHENASIA, HOMOSEXUALITY, WOMAN MINISTERS, and on and on and on.
The "total reliance and basis" of EVERY ONE these 42,000+ Protestant beliefs, is to aggressively attack, THE TRUTH and to judge and condemn over 2000 years of the TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His One True Apostolic Catholic Church.
Thanks for trying....
