Before any discussion begins about Christianity on this forum, it should be required that y'all watch Stars video link.
What came first? The Church or the Bible?

Sola Scripture is literally impossible to subscribe to. Its amazing you guys added this teaching to Jesus Christ's Ministry when He never preached, discussed or commanded such a theory. Sola Scripture is a doctrine of men. Its strange and relatively new.
On this Holy day called Good Friday, I pray you reflect and pray on where you stand on Jesus Christ.

(2) REJECTED Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church (in Matthew 16:13-21 (3) REJECTED Seven of the Original books of the bible (4) REJECTED the TRUE body and TRUE blood of Jesus Christ HIMSELF--in the Eucharist---John 6:47-59 (5)REJECTED the authoritative, visible, heirarchical Churches that the Apostoles directed beginning with the 1st Church of Antioch with bishops, priests, elders and deacons --Act 2,(6) REJECTED the words of Paul
in I Thy 3:15, when he calls "the Church--(not the bible alone) as the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH AND (7) REJECTED and REPLACED the expressed, spoken and stated words of Jesus HIMSELF in the Gospels, with "each fundies" own interpretation of what Jesus taught regarding His Church, Salvation, baptism and confession! Yes, Confrinting!! I DID walk in bible only"darkness for over 35 years, until God Our father, through His Son Jesus and the leading of the Holy Spirit --led me "out of your sola scriptura Protestant heresy, lies and deceit--into the TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His Saving Power of Salvation--(in and through) His One True Apostolic Catholic Church. You can have your "bible only heretical "darkness"!! IT IS ALL YOURS!!!
So for 1500 micro_seconds..... a blip in God infinity of time.

The Roman Catholics religious system has existed ....

and

believe that they control God's eternal grace and love...while ignoring

His word, while replacing it with their own fables and conjecture..

You first alleged pope wrote...

2Pe_3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

QUESTION..

WHY DO YOU SAY PETER IS THE FIRST POPE AND IGNORE WHAT HE WROTE?

BETTER YET..

WHY DO YOU SAY JESUS IS LORD...AND IGNORE HIM?

your small percentage is not that small,remember the child abuse goes from priests right up to a pope centuries ago,in 2000 yrs,who knows how many have been abused in that time period,we'll never know,plus it is not a localized incident,it's world wide,your small percentage is probably somewhere around the 40% mark,and that's pretty bad.one priest alone molested 200 kids over an extended period of time and Benny knew it,interceded on his behalf to stop the investigation,like I've said one child molester is one to may,the father Murphy incident proves that."the church is not guilty" you are joking right? you have to be,it's well known and has been established as fact the church is guilty of trying to cover up the scandal,plus they were found guilty of bank fraud and money laundering." Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church",false statement, Jesus never names his church,no scripture supports it, he did not create denominations,man did,his purpose was to teach/preach his fathers word only not create multiple religious groups,you can't even prove he existed,no body,no nothing,the church without divine authority changed the commandments,changed the Sabbath,created a false traditions an catechism,owns companies that build idols that they bow and pray to totally going against gods commandment,the are guilty of numerous crimes against man, the very people they are suppose to be there for,yet they tortured,killed and put fear into people to get them to follow the church,used the roman empire to back them up,they are thieves,everything within the walls of Vatican city is stolen property from countries that were conquered by the roman empire and the pope sanctioned crusades.and yes you are right sin is everywhere,it's not restricted just to the catholic church, but to out right deny it and hide it is unbelievable.there is more proof out there the R.P.C.church is not the true church than it is,you just close your eyes to it. very sad.

For the 1st 1500 years of the Catholic Church ---"fundamentalists have "created" a bible only "rejection" of Church History AND the TRUE INTERPRETATION OF Sacred Scripture!

The FACT is that Jesus and his disciples didn"t practice Sola Scripture.(1) Christians accepted the resurrection, not based on the Bible, but based on the authority of the eyewitnesses. The disciples didn"t have any beliefs based on the Old Testament about Jesus resurrection because at first, they didn"t even believe the Messiah would have to die.(Luke 24:1-11; John 20:16-29) Neither did they base it on the New Testament because this wasn't written yet. So they didn"t believe in the resurrection because the Gospel of Mark said so, but BECAUSE the apostles taught it and handed down that belief.(1 Corinthians 15:1-8; 2 Peter 1:16)

For these reasons, it is "obvious" that Christians in Biblical times didn"t believe in Sola Scriptura then, neither can it be true now. If it wasn"t Biblical before the Bible was finished, how could it become Scriptural after its completion? Just as Christians did then, we too can formulate beliefs based not only on Scripture, but also on the Divine Revelation of the Holy Spirit as received through those with appropriate authority in the church, or such revelation as preserved in the Traditions of the Church. The Word of God isn"t limited to the Bible! God can speak to each of us, and those who are enlightened by his Spirit, may impart information to us not found in the Bible, just as He spoke to the Christians in the first 1500 years of the Church!!

EVERY ONE of you "bible only"authors were sinners,--Moses was a murderer, David was an adulterer and Paul said "I am the worst of sinners.---So if you are going to judge people in the Church BY CONDUCT, then you had better "throw out your bible" because Moses, David and Paul --WERE ALL SINNERS!

Sorry to disappoint you, jethro8, but Jesus Christ IS THE CHURCH--the One True UNIVERSAL (Catholic) Church, beginning with Matthew 16:13-21 and ALL through 2000 years of PROVEN Church HISTORY...... Jesus in Matt 16 calls His Church "Upon this rock I will build MY CHURCH" ---Jesus Church is the Bride of Christ-----has, is and will ALWAYS BE!! Your (opinionated) editorialized "making up of Church History along with (personally) "editorializing" the TRUE interpretation of the bible, doesn't change the TRUTH!

child abuse is worse than in the catholic church?? then how come they are not getting the headlines the pagan/christian church is? and what proof do you have? and this forum is not about other churches,it's about the catholic church and it's ridiculous claim as to being the true church,which is a lie,there is no documented history that supports their position,only what they say,and that's not good enough,the church is well known for not being honest,so what ever it says has to be looked at twice before you can remotely believe it... and i am not attacking Jesus' church,i'm posting against the the created church of a pagan emperor,and a 100 hand picked ordinary men,who put together a book of rules,and by combining paganism and Christianity they created the pagan/christian church which was later named by Ignatius, the catholic church. it has nothing to do with god/jesus.and i'm not confused or being hypocritical,my head is not filled with the ideals and misguided beliefs that are being taught.I follow no religious group,none speak the whole truth and that can be blamed on the catholic church and it's creators for burning books.

If the Bible is a Catholic book ,Why does it condemn clerical dress?(Matt. 23:5-6).
2. Why does it teach against the adoration of Mary?(Luke 11:27-28).
3. Why does it show that all Christians are priests?(1 Pet. 2:5,9).
4. Why does it condemn the observance of special days?(Gal. 4:9-11).
5. Why does it teach that all Christians are saints?(1 Cor. 1:2).
6. Why does it condemn the making and adoration of images?(Ex. 20:4-5).
7. Why does it teach that baptism is immersion instead of pouring?(Col. 2:12).
8. Why does it forbid us to address religious leaders as "father"?(Matt. 23:9).
9. Why does it teach that Christ is the only foundation and not the apostle Peter?(1 Cor. 3:11).
10. Why does it teach that there is one mediator instead of many?(1 Tim. 2:5).
11. Why does it teach that a bishop must be a married man?(1 Tim. 3:2, 4-5).
12. Why is it opposed to the primacy of Peter?(Luke 22:24-27).
13. Why does it oppose the idea of purgatory?(Luke 16:26).
14. Why is it completely silent about infant baptism, instrumental music in worship, indulgences, confession to priests, the rosary, the mass, and many other things in the Catholic Church?
