Catholics don't believe that God's Word is the sole authority of Christianity.
Therefore, if a catholic teaching is NOT in God's Word, it still contradicts God's Word doesn't it?
No.

Christ established the Church-in scripture. He did not establish His Church to teach error.

That is not taught in Scripture...I showed that to you...
However, you have the God given right to believe whatever you wish to believe....
No, you just told me that you believe the woman "isn't Mary".

With all due respect, I'd have a bit more time for you if you hadn't posited your "JPI's early death vitiates apostolic succession" bit.

As it stands, we'll agree to disagree.

Yep - no "God" involved, yet you expressively state "an article of faith revealed by God".
"He" did - when? where? to whom?
Citation "from God" please.
Or, you being like other so-called "Catholics" will begin to spin the discussion in some other direction, like back at me?
We'll see how honest you really are.
I'll wait.
You're a man and you're trying to tell me what I should and shouldn't believe.

Pot, kettle, black.

Then your belief is dead wrong....there is no Scripture to support such a teaching....or you would have quoted said Scripture...

Again, my faith tells me that the Churhc Christ established cannot teach error.
The declaration of the Assumption in 1950 defined the belief in the Assumption as dogma, an article of faith revealed by God, which the magisterium of the Church presents as necessary to be believed.
Don't any Catholics read their pope approved NABre Bible...

Here is what it says about the word "church"...

There are several possibilities for an Aramaic original. Jesus’ church means the community that he will gather and that, like a building, will have Peter as its solid foundation. That function of Peter consists in his being witness to Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the living God.

Does anyone see this saying one thing about any Christian denomination????!!!!!

You're going in a circle here.
You left the Church (of men) so you, a man, could preach the Gospel.
Can only speak for myself but I'm much better for it. It is hard in this day and age to find a church that wants only to please God (not man) and stand on the gospel. I am more thankful than I can say God has blessed me with a wonderful wife and life in Christ. John 3:3

No idea. I thought I was talking to you as an individual, unaware that you speak for all non-Catholic Christendom.

Seems to reaffirm Catholic belief that the Church was founded by Christ with Peter as it's head on Earth.

Coming over to our side, Ox?

Listen to the Holy Spirit's Voice
The Holy Spirit is God—a divine Being with a mind, emotions, and will. He is always with us (Psalm 139:7-8). His purposes include interceding for us (Romans 8:26-27) and making decisions to benefit the church (1 Corinthians 12:7-11). His voice comforts, and He offers counsel when we ask and listen (John 14:16).

When we feel that we have received personal instruction from God, we need to remain wise (Proverbs 4:7). We must “test the spirits”(1 John 4:1). The world is full of noise and distractions, and so are our minds. Life on earth is a spiritual battle. The enemy is eager to supply diversions to detract us from God's will (1 Peter 5:8). We must be vigilant to ensure that what we have heard is more than a feeling but is truly from God Himself.

Remember, God wants to show us the right path to take. He’s not in the business of hiding His will from those who seek Him. Isaiah 30:21 says, "Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying,‘This is the way; walk in it.’"

Here are some good questions to ask as we examine whether or not promptings are from the Lord: Are the promptings confusing or vague? God is not the author of confusion; He is the bringer of peace (1 Corinthians 14:33). Do they go against God's Word? God will not contradict Himself. Will following these promptings lead to sin? Those who live by the Spirit will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature (Galatians 5:16).

In addition to prayer, studying God's Word, and listening to the Holy Spirit, you may want to seek counsel from a Christian friend, family member, or pastor (Proverbs 15:22). GotQuestions.org is a great resource, too, as we have many volunteers waiting to help answer your questions with biblical truth.

God does not want us to fail. The more we listen to God, the better able we will be at distinguishing His voice from the other noises in our heads. Jesus, the Good Shepherd, gives His promise:“He goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice”(John 10:4). Others may speak,“but the sheep [do] not listen to them”(verse 8). The better we know our Shepherd, the less we have to worry about heeding the wrong voice.

Fear not.

All of these Catholic beliefs are predicated in Scripture.
