There is no bigger HOAX on the planet earth than the roman catholic church. Wake up to the truth people. Its not even a church. It is a religion of manmade traditions and lies of the devil. It is certainly not a Biblical New Testament church. Many folks will be offended because the truth always offends those who are living in sin and darkness. The Bible CAN NOT be compromised because GOD said what he meant and meant what he said.Many of the foundational doctrines of roamn catholicism are NOT found anywhere in the Bible. It is EVIL to reject the plain teachings of scripture in exchange for the traditions of men. Stop it catholics for your souls sake!!!!

This is why no catholic on this form will ever answer this question because a catholics largest enemy is the BIBLE...the true written word of GOD.

As a Catholic, I make no pretense of fully informing my faith via Scripture. We don't do that.

Using a basis of "Scripture alone" to assail Catholic belief is an exercise in sophistry. If Catholics never claimed to comply to that standard to begin with, what exactly is one "proving" by pointing it out ad nauseum?

The Protestant maxim of "Sola Scriptura" (bible alone) isn't even in the Bible. It is "made up".

If your faith is not based on the bible which is GODS holy word...true word then what is it based on...mans made up word...EXACTLY!!!! That is why catechism is a HOAX. If your man made up faith is based on things that GOD did not say then who said it??? The pope? Please...the biggest sinner there is.

Again, you persist in remaining ill-informed, as that is the basis for any argument you attempt to make.

Catholics do believe in the Bible. Everyone save for the most ignorant knows this.

Again, nowhere in the Bible is "sola scriptura" nor 'sola fide" found, yet you persist your error that somehow Catholics do not believe in scripture.

Citing ritual and practice (you'lll drag that tired horse out next) does not make a substantial claim in support of your premise. Praying is not contradictory to scripture.

You may be aware that the death of Chirst predated the invention of the printing press by more than a millenium; you also are a sterling example of the fact that if one DID somehow have scripture available to them, they would have to be literate in order tor ead and understand it.

Was it God's plan that all should withhold worship of Him until the Bible could be printed, bound, distributed widely and comprehended widely? Say, until the 16th century or so?

You still can't provide any scripture to back up the rituals that were listed. Why is this? Catholics have made up rituals that they try to say are GOD approved and they are not! Know the word for yourselves folks!!!!!!

All of the things you mentioned are not in the Bible, as you indicated they are Catholic trasitions/rituals.

If I put a poll up asking

"How many times is "The Bible" referenced in The Bible?" the answer would be

A.) None

Scripture has NO basis for your belief that The Bible is the only means for informing your faith, to the exclusion of all else.

The difference between us is that I already know this, and you refuse to accept it or even offer a counterclaim.

Why would you tell folks that GOD inspired these rituals instead of the truth that they are man made up. Why practice a ritual that has NO GOD meaning????

My thing is don't say something is necessary to go to heaven or say its GODs way unless it is in the bible. You religion is based on phony rituals and traditions more than GODs word. This is why so many so called catholics are confused. Let GODS word be just that and keep mans rituals out of it. Stop practicing man made rituals. They are devil birthed.

Now...since you say all of the things that I listed are not in the bible. Why do you make your catholic followers do them saying it is necessary for them to go to heaven? Why are they needed???

They are as "made up" as your belief in "Bible alone", which also does not appear in scripture.

Every catholic that attempts to debate me on this issue will be proven wrong...because a bible is a catholics worst enemy. Hail mary saves no one...

Fine-disprove me by showing me where "salvation by faith alone" is documented in scripture. You will also need to explain the teachings of Christ to the contrary while you cite that passage.

John 3:16...says it all. Read it. Does it mention any works??? NO.
