you'd like that wouldn't you?
there are verses.
what makes you think the Pope can *add* to Biblical writings?
-No Pope has added to sacred scripture. They do not have the authority to do so. No one has.
The Catechism basically highlights sacred scripture. Its not opposite of the Bible.
Ironically, almost every minister I've heard, has added to sacred scripture. The obvious addition would be Sola Scripture. Some have added sola fide too. The first one doesn't appear at all in the Bible. The second one COULD appear, but only if you isolate certain verses and use them to cancel out other verses.
And lets not get into the Book of Revelation, you guys add your personal ideology to Johns visions and some have made entire religions out of it.
Clay: "No Pope has added to sacred scripture. They do not have the authority to do so. No one has."
of course, Clay. So tell me so I can under stand this:
When the church was "compiling" the scripture ... approximately 800 years AFTER Jewish canon of scripture was closed ... did the Jews of their day come by and say, "Yo! Dudes! somehow we forgot these books - so here they are and you need to add them into the Hebrew scriptures.":
I don't think so. These books were added by the Catholic Church ... with the Pope's approval.
