I haven't seen a direct response from you to me in quite a while.
What you mentioned to me was three or four things you said the Catholic Church had that I do not remember seeing in the scriptures. I asked three or more times for clarification.
If you ain't spinning your dancing around the subject.
Forget it anyways. Uselessness is not something with which I have much toleration. At least your "f a t h e r" has shown some credibility. If I have a question I'll ask him.
Don't be so hard on yourself. You're not completely useless.

You continue to make strong statements about the unscriptural use of scripture alone while conveniently leaving out the scriptural evidence of your claim.
Useless.
The Bible isn't self-referential. It does not have a divinely-inspired table of contents nor does Jesus instruct the use of scripture to the exclusion of all else for instruction in faith.

It is amazing your inability to bring logic into any of your arguments. Or, maybe not so amazing - I suppose the ability to reason about things for yourself has been commandeered by the Catholic hierarchy's indoctrination.
-
FYI - Clay ... the BIBLE is NOT the property of the Catholic church.
It is God's gift to all mankind and YOUR CHURCH tried to suppress it, because they did not want people questioning what the Catholic hierarchy was doing.
-
The Jews were not selfish with the Hebrew text. They made meticulous copies so all of mankind could read it. This is why it is still available for us today. NOT because of the Catholic church.
-
Again: THERE IS NO GOOD REASON FOR A TRUE CHRISTIAN TO HIDE THE WORD OF GOD FROM THE PEOPLE. This is what the Catholic church did. They, in fact, tortured and murdered those who had copies of the scriptures. A TRUE Church would NOT do that - because a TRUE church would have NOTHING TO HIDE.*THEREFORE* Catholicism CANNOT be the true religion. period.
-
By denying the people the right to read the Scriptures, the Catholic church has CREATED the confusion that is now prevalent in the numerous denominations.

True Christians want to SHARE THE GOOD NEWS with everyone. Not hide it at the Vatican libraries.

SO CLAY ....
IF YOU CAN SHOW ME ONE GOOD REASON FOR HIDING THE SCRIPTURE FROM THE PEOPLE, I WILL RETURN TO BEING CATHOLIC.
Why demand that Clay offer a response for your straw man argument (he didn't suggest hiding scripture)?

Clay said, correctly, that Christ didn't command that all He said be written down.

Got news for you.

Your elected popoe is no 'Holy Father'. So can the lies.
As for Peter, he was never a pope, and old Ratslinger is no successor, either, any more than any other of your elected old boys.

The Catholic Church is completely entwined with scripture. Its inseparable.. You guys attempted to remove the Church and just go with the bible (to design your own tower to Heaven).
You do not understand how, what and where the Bible is.
You demand that every word (like Cardinal or Pope) should explicitly be spelled out in scripture for it to be valid. Well, I'm sorry Saban, you do not get to dictate what the Bible should be. It was not given to us like that.
If you claim it was revealed as a word for word; sola scripture method, then show me from scripture where it states that, then we'll go from there. Ok?
Here's several examples where it says it:

you should realise that whilst the Cathoic Church teaches it is the one true Church,it also teaches that other Christian groups that have departed from the Catholic Church still do possess some of the truth and Grace which is only fully and completely present in the Catholic Church.
..
Are these critics of the RCC so charitable? Do they think Catholics are saved, or just their own particular group?

Is this man kidding, even as a child I knew this was not normal.
The Pope has never read the Bible,
How many catholic's agree with this. statement from the Pope or believe he is telling the truth.

The Pope

21 December 2010

Victims of clerical sex abuse have reacted furiously to Pope Benedict's claim yesterday that paedophilia wasn't considered an “absolute evil” as recently as the 1970s.

In his traditional Christmas address yesterday to cardinals and officials working in Rome, Pope Benedict XVI also claimed that child pornography was increasingly considered “normal” by society.

“In the 1970s, paedophilia was theorised as something fully in conformity with man and even with children,” the Pope said.

“It was maintained — even within the realm of Catholic theology — that there is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is only a ‘better than' and a ‘worse than'. Nothing is good or bad in itself.”

Should I dare go in this circle again and ask this person yet again to explain the significance of these two items? The definition of doing something over and over expecting a different result is insanity, right? Therefore I am not asking.

I will only inform that we do practice the Lord's Supper in a biblical way and we do baptize in the biblical way.

The Bible does not specifically use the term “child abuse.” There is no record of a single instance in the Bible where a child is being abused. What the Bible does tell us is this: children have a special place in God’s heart and anyone who harms a child is inviting God’s wrath upon Him. When Jesus’ disciples tried to keep children from coming to Him, He rebuked them and welcomed little children to His side, saying,“Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these”(Mark 10:14). Then He took the children in His arms and blessed them (v. 16).

You don't understand my point.

Scripture tells us that Christ established the Church to teach.

Thus, scripture cannot be the sole means to instruction of the faith. The Church teaches and scripture teaches. Both are authoritative.

If you contend that "scripture only" is authoritative, you are, in fact, going against scripture.
