That was my point earlier as well.
Her position is that the Catholic Church is "wrong" at best, apostate most of the time by her posts, and she apparently doesn't care for how they vetted the scriptures when declaring canon.......
...BUT she holds the Bible they came up with as the sole foundation of her faith.
Yeah, that makes sense.
This kind of thing is why I refused to be protestant anymore. I got tired of the freakin confusion, the whip lash, the nonsensical stances, the brain-straining cognitive dissonance, the feeling like I had to almost have alter egos, one for each mutually exclusive set of ideas I was supposed to believe.

Joh_5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
WHEN ONE SEARCHES THE SCRIPTURES ...THEY SAY NOTHING...THEY ARE
ALTOGETHER SILENT
ABOUT A ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
HE DID NOT SAY SEARCH THE CATECHISM....NOR THE ARCHIVES OF THE VATICAN

1:14 and 1:15 aren't in the same timeframe.
1:15 leads off with "In those days", which is a segue from the events noted in 1:14.
You're also welcome.
you are wrong again Dan. this is ALL ONE EPISODE THAT LUKE IS TELLING. GEESH,

and verse 14 also speaks of the [brothers] of Jesus who now believe and are with their Mary.lol

14) These men continued in united prayer [for the kingdom to come? See 1:6; Matt. 6:10] along with [certain] women, Mary the mother of Jesus and His [half-] brothers.

What if it is a simple as this.
The Church started with the Apostles. And grew into an institution that became very intertwined with Emperor and kings later on. The kings used the authority of religion and the Church used the authority of the kings.
GOd did not want this political institution to be the ONLY way His word was spread.
He allowed for the Reformation..the distribution of bibles and the spread if His Word across the seas. NOTHING that big could happen without Him.
GOD blessed our country for its basic faithfulness and allowed us to ally with Israel.
Our internet and television ministries both Catholic and non spread the Good Word all over.
Our missionaries both Catholic and Non do wonderful work in poor places and Spread the Good Word.
He allowed this country to become a shining city .
He allowed for Vatican 2
He allowed for Popes who are now independent of kings and politics and ask for UNITY between the brethren...meaning us.
And for good relations with Israel
And He allowed for the generalized ACTUAL BIBLE study along with the catechism they had. For Catholics..with actual bibles
GOD HAS ALWAYS HAD A,PLAN for His,Church.(His Bride..the believers)
And maybe He needed alliance with the Emperor's to preserve His word.
But HE obviously did not desire that it be kept locked up for ONLY the clergy to interpret.
GOD ALLOWED all of this.
I believe He used ALL of theses methods including the printing press...tv..And internet..So that His word would be spread as far as,possible before the END TIMES.
Catholics BELIEVE it's only through them we are saved
We believe in the Bible as the way.
Maybe for each time in history it was through both .
So that most who hear will believe the ONLY NECESSARY WORD.
Jesus died for our Sins. We need to repent and receive Him. He is the Way..The Truth and the Light.
AT SOME POINT..it will be too late..He wants that none shall perish
Imo..to jealously say I AM THE ONLY WAY Is so wrong.
GOD allowed the Reformation so more of His word was spread ..period.
GOD allowed the Church in Rome to copy and preserve scripture.AND TO COMPILE THE SCRIPTURE
We needed each other.to do His will.
And it is folly to believe differently. Imo
If there are errors in how we practice ....GOD WILL CORRECT THEM.
But the WORD ..JESUS IS THE WAY. Is His word and it will go out because He wants it to by what ever means He allows
And the Spirit will show us the truth in the Word.
That would all be nice and fluffy and stuff except for the fact that the Reformation promulgated lies at the expense of the truth and has put millions of souls in jeapordy.
There can not be 43,000 different truths.

However, God does take horrible events such as the Reformation and make good come of it. It was not, imo, what He had in mind when He prayed that His Church be ONE, as He and the Father are ONE.
I don't think Martin Luther came along and convinced God that it was a good thing to SHATTER His Church into 43,000 shards.

Didn't change a thing. I just read it and comprehend it.

And the opposite is true for me. concerning Jesus to be quite simple as was,His message

He us the Way the truth and the Light

Salvation is through HIM and Him alone

CONFESS with your mouth and believe. HE died for and became sin for
us

Paid our debt in full as only the Unblemished Lamb could

He rose from the dead conqueiing death
