You are *true followers* of the pope....nothing more.
The pope said murder and torture heretics - CATHOLICS DID SO.
The pope said call priests Father - Catholics did so.
and you Catholics know how long this list of "following the pope" rather than following JESUS can be. we've showed it to you over and over.
Not only do they follow their pope in the above.
They disregard the Ten Commandments and bow down to icons statues icons and idols..made in the likenesses of corruptible human beings..
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God
into an image
made like to corruptible man, and
to birds, and
fourfooted beasts, and
Their Catechism is their standard instead of the Bible..
Ignoring the fact that when they stand before God;
it will be GOD'S WORD....THE BIBLE that they will be judged by....

nor of their POPES.
Only the Bible has the Holy Spirits inspiration and approval...
2Ti 3:8 Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
2Ti 3:9 But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.
2Ti 3:10 But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
2Ti 3:11 Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
2Ti 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
2Ti 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
2Ti 3:14 ---> But continue...
thou in the things which thou hast learned
and hast been assured of,
knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
2Ti 3:15 And that from a child
thou hast known the holy scriptures,
which are able to make thee wise unto salvation
through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
2Ti 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and
is profitable for doctrine,
for instruction in righteousness:
2Ti 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect,
unto all good works. <---
