They can't be separated. Its the same thing. Neither adds to nor contradicts each other. It simply can't. Truth is truth.
The Bible flowed from the sacred tradition of the Church in perfect harmony. When you remove one (such as you Bible only people did) you have chaos. Hence the 40,000 different opinions on sacred scripture. Why? Because you removed the Church that brought forth the books.

I said Amen because the statement made was one with which I wholeheartedly agreed. It doesn't hurt anything to highlight our likenesses and say job well done when something is said or done exactly as you like.

I wish I could find more reason to Amen your comments too. Do you notice just how much inconsistency is being displayed in your views?

Following on from a post yesterday, just to clarify what the Anglican church teaches, for anyone who is intetested in these things. It teaches that all matters for salvation are found in the Bible. It is led by the Queen as its head, and does not accept the authority of the Pope. However there a some similarities with the CC, from its history. The communion service is, to my mind, similar to Mass in appearance. There is the belief in the real presence, we recite the Nicene creed, we say in every service that we believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church. In summary it is catholic in appearance but (largely) protestant in doctrine.
Nice try. but you just told us your knowledge of the Anglican Church is very limited.

"Anglo-Catholics are a very small minority of Anglicanism."

More...

"Today, most Anglicans in the world (whether part of the official Anglican Communion or not) are either low church evangelical (often of a Calvinist bend) or modern liberal revisionists. Neither are well known for accepting the Real Presence."

Of course, this can all be verified by a simple Internet search, but why bother?

If one cannot understand why Protestants by their very definition cannot be Catholic, then it's their problem.

This poster is busted. And he really, really WANTS us to believe him too.

Is a Pope infallible if he protects pedophiles?
Come on Guest. If that allegation were true, then the Pope would likely be in Hell or headed there.
"is the Pope who sanctioned the the torture of heretics infallible"?
Which Pope? I don't know of any one that was directly responsible.
However, we know the Church had many sinners in their leadership in midevel times. As Father Ubel- rector of the Cathedral of Saint Paul, MN said- "the Church were committing acts that would make us shutter".
YET, some of the greater saints in the history of the Catholic Church lived during this period (like Saint Francis of Asassi )
No matter how corrupt the leadership was, they could not alter Catholicism because its guided by Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit will always have Saints in place to remind any corrupt Catholic leadership of truth. Recently, Mother Teresa and Pope John Paul II would fit that description. Yes JP II was top the hierarchy, but Priests and Bishops around him were corrupt.
Again, nobody could prevail against the Catholic faith- not even from within.
Great point Clay.

And Hitler never killed a Jew himself either. So by Clay's logic, Hitler could be made a Saint one day, along with Benito Mussolini.

General Franco too.

No inconsistencies on the Catholics here. In fact, I don't need to check anything they say. I know we'll be in communion with each other and in communion with someone on the other side of the world who I never met.
Can you guys say the same thing about each other?

Revelation begins to make sense when one accepts a few facts:
1. Rev. 1:1-John explains his writings are signified. The message is to be known by him and the intended readers while it remained hidden and meaningless/confusing to any enemy of the church.
2. It's a message to 7 real churches. The message had to be meaningful to them way back then in their persecution. Also, since 7 is a perfect number (3=deity+4=earthly=7) it is intended to be a message for all of Christ's churches.
3. An understanding that Jesus is a reigning King. His Kingdom is the church.
Don't forget the last part of the Book that warns against adding to the prophecies of John.

But you said 'Amen' because you agreed with 4gvn that the Bible is all that is necessary. Yet, you and 4gvn are poles apart on theology. Obviously, its ridiculous to agree with each other when the only thing you got in common is that you hate the Catholic Church.

That may be true. But the church services at the church I attend have similarities to a catholic mass. Anyway my purpose here is not in taking sides. It is to help towards unity, per John 17. Jesus prays for unity. He didnt pray for 000s of competing sects, something whch you guys forget ;)

The Catechism is obviously not equated with the Bible in that sense. But it highlights the Bible and flows in harmony with it. It doesn't contradict it.

So in that sense, they would go together just like you think your preachers sermon goes with the Bible reading of the day.
