"I quoted scripture, I quoted Christ Himself!"<quoted text>
I quoted SCRIPTURE.
I quoted Jesus Christ, himself.
By Catholic standards, Christ's very teachings are not *Christian*.
By Catholic standards, Christ's very WORDS are not *Christian*.
The Catholic Church has TRIED to PREVAIL AGAINST the Scriptures and has failed - OVER AND OVER AGAIN - even as they say they are the "keepers" of God's Word.
The Church has failed because the WORD OF GOD is SHARPER than ANY TWO EDGED SWORD that the church, or anyone else, can wield.
"Call No Man Father," by Catholic Standards, means they can go against the very words of Jesus Christ himself.
and that is just for starters.
What does that mean when you twist, turn, and tweek everything else Our Lord said?
He held up the bread and said, "THIS IS MY BODY"
You deny it and say He meant a symbol.
He looked at Simon and said (to Simon) "You are Peter, and on this Rock I will build my Church"
You say He didn't mean what the everyone thought He meant.
"The gates of Hell will not prevail against my Church"
You either re-defined what 'Church' meant or say the Catholic Church was legit until the Bible was established 400 yrs after He said that, then it slowly fell away from Christ as it was infiltrated by Constantine... Basically, you say Christ really didn't mean the gates of Hell wouldn't prevail against *that* Church.
