This is a rebuttal:<quoted text>
I think at this point it's your job to actually rebut me, as opposed to
being the ecclesial "fashion police", right?
And they wore their costumes and spent their money on and listened to their tremendous pipe organs during worship in the castles they constructed to impress people.- No - it's NOT there.
Apostacy took place rendering it man's church. A denomination. Not Christ's church.
....because you can't find any of this nonsense in the scriptures. It makes my point for me that the church you read about in scripture is not at all the current man-made Catholic church.
You have no true guide except for the men (did you notice that word, men) that tell you what you can believe and that interpret the scripture for you because obviously you folks can't be trusted with it. Please enter the Catholic church and leave your God given intelligence outside. Write checks so we can build big monuments to ourselves and buy costumes to show you how special we are.
