Torah: The first five books of the Hebrew Scriptures.
Christ built His church, which is Christianity, hundreds of years after the Torah was....it is first referenced in Joshua....
----------
Jesus many times did or said something, "so that the scripture might be fulfilled".
When His turn came to read the scriptures in the Temple, He read from ISAIAH.
He fulfilled over 300 prophesies from the O.T. concerning Himself.

He also referred to Scripture not found in the Torah nor any other part of the OT....

Mt 4:4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Lu 4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

<quoted text>Maybe this will help her What does "catholic" mean?
830 The word "catholic" means "universal," in the sense of "according to the totality" or "in keeping with the whole." the Church is catholic in a double sense: First, the Church is catholic because Christ is present in her. "Where there is Christ Jesus, there is the Catholic Church."307 In her subsists the fullness of Christ's body united with its head; this implies that she receives from him "the fullness of the means of salvation"308 which he has willed: correct and complete confession of faith, full sacramental life, and ordained ministry in apostolic succession. the Church was, in this fundamental sense, catholic on the day of Pentecost309 and will always be so until the day of the Parousia.
831 Secondly, the Church is catholic because she has been sent out by Christ on a mission to the whole of the human race:310
All men are called to belong to the new People of God. This People, therefore, while remaining one and only one, is to be spread throughout the whole world and to all ages in order that the design of God's will may be fulfilled: he made human nature one in the beginning and has decreed that all his children who were scattered should be finally gathered together as one.... the character of universality which adorns the People of God is a gift from the Lord himself whereby the Catholic Church ceaselessly and efficaciously seeks for the return of all humanity and all its goods, under Christ the Head in the unity of his Spirit.311
Each particular Church is "catholic"
Love it!!!! You are calling your pope a liar!!!

The Church didn't change from Roman to something else. The official name was never Roman Catholic Church. Roman is an adjective describing the diocese of Rome and the rite. If you grew up in the West, you most likely belonged to the diocese of Rome.(but now a days that's not always the case). Don't you remember the Roman missal with the Roman Mass??
This is why it makes zero sense when fundamentals try to pass the Roman Catholic Church off as a separate body.'the Whore of Babylon' also makes zero sense. Fundamental arguments that the ROMAN Catholic Church corrupted Christianity and the ROMAN Catholic Church banned the Bible and the ROMAN Catholic Church deviated from the word of God. Roman Roman Roman Roman. Lol
What about the Maronite Catholic? Orthodox Catholic? Syrian, Oriental, Ethiopian, Ukrainian, Coptic Catholic??
Like Roman, those are adjectives describing the same Church, the Catholic Church.

#78. The Pharisee and the Tax Collector (Luke 18:9-14)
by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson
Luke 18:9-14
[9] To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable:[10] "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.[11] The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself:'God, I thank you that I am not like other men -- robbers, evildoers, adulterers -- or even like this tax collector.[12] I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'
[13] "But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said,'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'
[14] "I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
Exposition
If you think that looking down on others was exclusively a First Century phenomenon, think again. This parable speaks loud and clear to Twenty-First Century churches. Listen for what Jesus says to us disciples.
Self-Righteousness (18:9-10)
"To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable:'Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.' " (18:9-10)
Luke precedes the parable by naming its intended target. The first characteristic is "confident of their own righteousness." The word translated "confident" (NIV) or "trusting in" (KJV) is Greek peitho, which can mean variously, "convince, persuade, depend on, trust in, be convinced, certain."[1] "Righteousness" is Greek dikaios, "pertaining to being in accordance with high standards of rectitude,'upright, just, fair.' "[2]
Holiness churches are filled with people who are scrupulous in their observance of a rigid menu of moral standards. So are evangelical and mainline churches, Pentecostals and Catholics, Orthodox and Seventh Day Adventists. In each of our denominations there are sincere, God-fearing people who are careful to obey God as they understand his laws.
In Jesus' day the Pharisees were the strict Jews. They believed. They were disciplined. They took the Law seriously -- so seriously, in fact, that they created a "hedge" around the law, the Oral Law, with the idea that if they kept the rules of the Oral Law (the tradition of the elders), then they wouldn't break the Mosaic Law.
We too, have our "hedge" around the law. At various times and in various churches there have been rules against open-toed shoes, sleeveless dresses, slacks for women, mixed bathing, not genuflecting before the host, abstaining from wine and hard liquor, beards, smoking, drugs (but not herbs and pharmaceuticals), lack of beards, lack of head coverings, eating pork, eating any meat, drinking caffinated drinks (coffee, but hot chocolate is okay)-- have I forgotten any important ones?:-) You get the idea. None of these is stipulated clearly in the scripture, but each comes from a desire to please God and avoid godless ways.
And there's nothing wrong with rules. Each family has to have family rules. Each church needs to have family rules, too. It's a requirement of any human organization. We just need to keep our rules in perspective, and realize that they are not necessarily God's rules, but derivatives of God's rules.
A problem arises, however, when we are "confident in our own righteousness" or "trust in" our own righteousness to save us and justify us before God. When we move from righteous living -- which is right -- to trusting in that righteous living to give us a standing before God, then we commit a fatal error. In that case it becomes self-righteousness.
Looking Down on Others (18:9-10)
But when we begin to take pride in our own righteous behavior, it's very easy to look down on those who don't behave this way as morally inferior ...

We shouldn't

And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt. And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

1. Where do Christians get their faith?
Christians go to the Bible.
2. What is the Bible?
The Bible, called the Holy Scriptures, containing the Old and New Testaments, 66 Books only, is the Word of God and the only infallible source of Divine Truth and Divine Commandment. It is without error and is infallible.
Rome has added other books to the Bible, called the Apocryphal. The Council of Trent (Session 4) enumerated these books "Lest any doubt should arise respecting the sacred books which are received by the Council:
Tobias
Judith
The Dream of Mardochai (added to the Book of Esther)
Wisdom
Ecclesiasticus
Baruch
The Song of the Three Children (inserted in the 3rd chapter of Daniel, from the 25th to the 91st verse, Douay Bible)
The Prayer of Manasses
and the First and Second Books of Maccabees."
True Christians reject these books:
First, they were never received, acknowledged or admitted into the canon of the Old Testament Scripture by the Jews, to whom, St Paul says, "the words of God were committed" (Romans 3:2); nor are they included in the cataloge of sacred books given to Josephus, the Jewish historian.
Second, not one of the Apocryphal books was written in pure Hebrew.
Third, the Apocryphal books are never quoted by our Lord or His Apostles.
Fourth, they were rejected by the primitive Church (Eusebius: Hist., lib. Iv, c. 26).
Fifth, they were rejected from the canon of inspired Scripture by Jerome, Origen, Athanasius, Cyril, Hilary, Gregory Nazianzen, etc.
Sixth, the Council of Laodicea, held in the year 364, whose canons were received and confirmed by the Council of Chalcedon in 451, delivers the catalogue of the canonical books as they are received in the Protestant Church.
3. How do Christians know that the Bible is the Word of God?
The Bible manifests itself to be the Word of God by its claim, and the proof of its claim in its majesty, purity, invincibility, infallibility, integrity and authority, but especially the witness of the Holy Spirit of God in the heart which alone is able to persuade that it is indeed the very Word of God.
4. Who is a Christian?
A Christian is any person, no matter what his color, class or creed may have been, who believes the Record that God has given of His Son in the Word of God; accepts the verdict of God upon himself as a sinner; confesses that he is lost and hell-deserving; makes bare his heart and all his sins to God only; asks to be cleansed in the Savior's Precious Blood, throwing himself for salvation by faith alone, through grace alone, on Christ alone. The true Christian gladly confesses: "I'm only a sinner and nothing at all, but Jesus Christ is my all in all."
5. What is the Church?
The Church on earth is the whole company of all redeemed ones who have believed in Christ alone to the salvation of their souls; whose infallible rule is the Holy Scriptures; and who are seeking, by the Holy Spirit, to win lost souls for Christ. This is the true Universal or Catholic Church on earth.

I understand what you are saying, but your hierarchy does refer to the organization "both" ways...I am having difficulty understanding your urgency in "removing" yourself from it.
I don't have an urgency. The Bishops of the first Vatican council in 1868 felt it necessary to address the issue because the born again movement and SDAs and such were forming and telling everyone the Roman Catholic Church was prophesied in Revelation. Its the Whore of Babylon!! It doesn't make sense, because that's not nor never was the name of the Church itself. That's why the Vatican never said what the title of this thread alleges either.
Yet can't find a single fundie website that will say anything other than Roman Catholic. They stress that title with vengeance. I believe its because they have to paint a picture of a barbaric empire who corrupted the faith and their anti christ leader desires to snatch your Bibles away. The harlot and whore, right? Well, the true reason behind the label Roman completely messes up fundamental Christianity. Its a bombshell that will further force them to embrace yet another lie. To them, the Church must be called Roman. Byzantine, Syrian, Oriental, Ethiopian, Coptic, Greek, Ukrainian Catholics who recognize the office of the Bishop of Rome, will have to be re-labeled for the fundie.

Correction! It is YOU and your bible only "make it up" as you go "fundies" that have ZERO CREDIBILITY when it comes to over 2000 years of biblical or historical truth to back up ANYTHING that you say! Your "fictitious" Church History editorializing and "paste a bunch of bible verses together" based on NOTHING but your own "personal opinionated" interpretation are just another (hodge-podge) of 42,000 contradicting "all over the place" denominations. Protestant "bible only" man-made doctrines have absolutely "no basis" of any biblical or historical truth and were NEVER believed by ANYONE until the 18th century. Your bible only boat keeps s going around and around in circles,(with one oar) and is laced with inconsistencies, half-truth bible interpretation and an assortment of (dreamed up) myths and legends that are based ONLY upon your animosity, vindictiveness, hostility and hatred for Jesus Christ HIMSELF and Hia One True Catholic Church!!!!
