No, it doesn't.<quoted text>
Not by their will .. by ours .. and a lot of blood
also:..... the RCC STILL discourages reading and studying the scripture .. they can't pull-off today what they TRIED to pull-off during the DARK AGES ...... "Oh no no no ... you can't understand the scripture by yourself .. you need US to do that for you" ... PS: Nettie ... you no longer need a priest ... the human priesthood was done-away-with when the veil was rent in two from top to the bottom ... Jesus is now your priest ... http://bobgeorge.net/teaching/hebrews/ ... learn and live
I happen to have a Catholic Bible AND a KJV Bible also. lol
My, how you lie!
And, scripture FROM the Bible is read daily during Mass.
The Bible itself says that the Church is the authority; no where in the Bible is there scripture saying that the Bible is the authority; the Bible is a Catholic document!
Who better to have the authority to interpret scripture than the Church whose first members (Catholics) wrote it!
