Yes, it does play a part in not being able to understand...but Scripture says the reason for not being able to understand Scripture is: But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.

I totally agree with Scripture...been there...done that...

The Catholic Church seems a bit corrupt. First, how can U tell people to confess their wrongdoings to another man and expect forgiveness?! That power is not in man! Then they make saints of men who have passed away and tell U that the person is some kind of guardian now and if U pray upon them they will protect U from whatever bothers U. Sound like false gods, doesn't it?! They even made Mary some kind of God that they pray to. Oh my God, this is so blasphemous if we take into account the C.ommandments!! They even bow down to what they call a "pope" and praise he who is flesh more than He who is in spirit who said to trust not man or his will but believe in the Father and obey His will. Catholic priests are even referring to themselves as "Father" and insists that U must also. BLASPHEMY!!! The Catholic Church can't be the "real" church because it is a mockery of epic proportions and has conspired to keep the masses under a hypnotic spell of ignorance in order to maintain order amongst a chaotic race of beings called "man" through a religion based upon man being worthy of praise just a well as the Almighty. Blasphemous!!!
I was a Catholic for the first 40 years of my life..what you are saying is gospel truth. During that period of my life, I was a staunch defender of my religion...to the point of physical confrontations to silence the "holy rollers"..as we called Protestants...who tried in vain to share the truth with me!!!!

And havoing quoted that verse with which I am in agreement with you in, 99.99 percent of Christians cannot """DISCERN """ the majority of the word of God. Even the things of scripture that are natural they cannot "discern". I asked them yesterday to demonstrate how to set the date for the Passover and not one was able to do. I bet you can't either. It doesn't require spiritual discernment to do because God has already showed us how but most of Christianity cannot follow those simple instructions.

And why is it that many laymen,unbelievers can better comprehend the scriptures better than most professed Christians can?

No it does not and you have proven no such thing.

The Greek was correctly translated to English in the Geneva and KJV Bibles.

The Masoretic Hebrew is the OT of the Geneva and KJV Bibles.

THE BIBLE HAS SOMETHING TO SAY ABOUT THOSE THAT CALL EVIL GOOD...
Thou lovest evil more than good; and lying rather than to speak righteousness. Selah.
Isa 5:18 Woe unto them that draw iniquity with cords of vanity, and sin as it were with a cart rope:
Isa 5:19 That say, Let him make speed, and hasten his work, that we may see it: and let the counsel of the Holy One of Israel draw nigh and come, that we may know it!
Isa 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
Isa 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
Isa 5:22 Woe unto them that are mighty to drink wine, and men of strength to mingle strong drink:
Isa 5:23 Which justify the wicked for reward, and take away the righteousness of the righteous from him!
Isa 5:24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust:
because
they have cast away the law of the LORD of hosts,
and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Indeed, he declared himself an authority on sacred scripture and manipulates the Good Book to beat Catholics over the head with. He uses the Bible for his own personal vendetta.
I would describe more than a few of these guys as 'modern day scribes and pharisees', who manipulated the Sacred Scriptures to their own advantage; trashing Christ, beating Him with the 'word of God' and condemning Him to death. His Catholic Church does not fare much better these days.

Wow the new special issue "Time Magazine" with Pope Francis on the cover is one of the most pathetic piece of crap I ever read.
One or two pages are about Pope Francis. The next hundred are about turmoil in the Church. A couple pages on an ex Priest who fell in love with some divorced chick and now is an Episcopal priest and marries gay couples. Another is on a nun who wants to be a Priest. A few pages are on 4 or 5 bad Popes. The last articles are on American Catholic statistics on contraception and Priestly celibacy. lol. You'd think Michael wrote the issue! They both think Catholic teachings are determined by popular cultural opinions!!

In other words: "Time Magazine" fears Pope Francis and the Catholic Church - the pillar and bulwark of truth. If they can trash this Church and make them go away, they can feel more at ease about their life choices.

Bulwark definition: A wall raised as a defensive fortification; Protection against external danger.

No I Am Not Catholic. I was raised in the Baptist, Assembly of God, Pentecost and when I was very young Church of Christ with family members, then to the Baptist til Dad and Mom got back into Church when I was about 10.

I was Baptised in the Baptist Church.
I believe there is some truth mixed with false doctrine in most all of them as per scropture Harlot and her Daughters (protestants church's keeping the traditions of the RCC)

I have attended various other church's as an adult closest to a Catholic was the episcopal church.

I read and study with family and friends attend church on occasions when I feel well enough to.

The Avatar just represents a Universal weekly cycle woth the 7th referring to the Sabbath.

Daniel 9 is a dual prophecy concerning the 70 weeks determined upon Daniels people.

9:27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Why do Roman Catholics always use 2 Timothy 2:2; 3:14 as Bible proof that extra-biblical oral tradition is to be followed through apostolic succession, when tradition says Timothy became the bishop of Ephesians, which through succession, is now part of the Greek Orthodox church headed out of Constantinople? If 2 Timothy 2:2 proves succession, doesn't this prove the Roman Catholic church is not part of that succession?

The proof of Apostolic succession is not based soley on any individual Bible verse.
The proof is in how the Bible came to be....by Apostolic succession.
The Bible was the result of hundreds of yrs of Catholic sacred tradition. Among the sacred traditions was the Holy Mass, where scripture readings were said prior to the partaking of the Holy Eucharist. Many of these readings made it into the New Testament canon in the 4th century. Some - like the Epistles of Clement - did not.

You see, Apostolic succession. Church hierarchy. Teaching Magistrium of the Catholic Church. Popes, Bishops and sacred traditions were all in place and eventually bore fruit to the NT. This authority added 27 books to the OT Scriptures.
Christ nor the Apostles ever commanded them to do it.

Daniel 9

25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto [the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks,] and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

26 And after threescore and two weeks shall Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of the war desolations are determined.

27 And he (Jesus) shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

God/Christ is the one who we made a covenant with. The sacrifice ceased at his crucifixion in the middle of the week, also the year for a day prophecy according to the 70 weeks 470 days/years to the stoning of Steven 35 years on to the destruction of the temple another 35 years. Actually it could be a three fold prophecy.
