Spin it any way you want, Catholics by the millions didn't just wake up one morning and say, lets follow Luther.<quoted text>
That is because Luther, started his "Protestant (personal opinion of the bible0 by distorting and (throwing out) the TRUTH of the TRUE INTERPRETATION of Bible (pick and choosing)conveniently eliminating the book of James--to his own destruction!! James 2:14-20 Faith without works is dead--works without faith is dead!!! Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church has taught the TRUTH of "entire bible" hundreds of years before Luther came along where he (decided) to "cafeteria styled" a "cherry picked selection" of verses just like it is being done today, with 42,000+contradicting and conflicting interpretations.(just more Protestant chaos and confusion)
The catholic church was corrupt, millions of educated people saw this, and flaws of teaching elements of the catholic faith that were not biblical especially when money was involved.
jesus was claimed to be the poorest of the poor, yet today the vatican has BILLIONS $$$ invested around the world in huge corporations, priceless art, and gold bullion, as 30,000 children starve to death everyday in our world.
.....something is terribly wrong HOJO, yet you give them a thumbs up.
makes no common sense...
