Yes the Bishop of Rome is head of the Universal Church. No, the Bishop of Rome (Pope) does not refer to the Church as the Roman Catholic Church.
If you were like Rose and I and grew up with the Roman rite Mass, and you perhaps visited Minneapolis and wanted to attend Mass on Sunday, you'd Google "Roman Catholic Churches" and a list of Catholic Churches will pop up who adhere to the Roman rite. Like Saint Agnes Church in St Paul.
If you were Turkish or Greek and visited Minneapolis and wanted to attend mass on Sunday, you'd probably Google "Byzantine Catholic Church" and a list of Byzantine Churches would pop up. Like Saint John the Baptist in Minneapolis.
Saint John is not a Roman Catholic Church. They still recognize the primacy of the Bishop of Rome, but to call them Roman Catholic would be incorrect, they are Byzantine Catholic.
Saint John and Saint Agnes are not separated Catholic Churches. They just have different adjectives describing the same exact Church.
Hope that helps.
I understand what you are saying, but your hierarchy does refer to the organization "both" ways...I am having difficulty understanding your urgency in "removing" yourself from it.

You just proved that the word of God is not confined to documented writings. So why do you only follow the written word of God and dismiss the oral word of God?(2thess 2:15)
----------
And who is to judge WHICH oral word is of God? That would open the door to lots of kooks to declare that their word is of God.
Yes, I know that there are already lots of kooks who do that. THAT is why we need the Bible.

Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle.

Tradition: a precept; specially, the Jewish traditionary law:--ordinance, tradition.

To my knowledge...no Catholic nor Protestant follow the Jewish traditionary law..

<quoted text>Maybe this will help her What does "catholic" mean?
830 The word "catholic" means "universal," in the sense of "according to the totality" or "in keeping with the whole." the Church is catholic in a double sense: First, the Church is catholic because Christ is present in her. "Where there is Christ Jesus, there is the Catholic Church."307 In her subsists the fullness of Christ's body united with its head; this implies that she receives from him "the fullness of the means of salvation"308 which he has willed: correct and complete confession of faith, full sacramental life, and ordained ministry in apostolic succession. the Church was, in this fundamental sense, catholic on the day of Pentecost309 and will always be so until the day of the Parousia.
831 Secondly, the Church is catholic because she has been sent out by Christ on a mission to the whole of the human race:310
All men are called to belong to the new People of God. This People, therefore, while remaining one and only one, is to be spread throughout the whole world and to all ages in order that the design of God's will may be fulfilled: he made human nature one in the beginning and has decreed that all his children who were scattered should be finally gathered together as one.... the character of universality which adorns the People of God is a gift from the Lord himself whereby the Catholic Church ceaselessly and efficaciously seeks for the return of all humanity and all its goods, under Christ the Head in the unity of his Spirit.311
Each particular Church is "catholic"
Love it!!!! You are calling your pope a liar!!!

The Church didn't change from Roman to something else. The official name was never Roman Catholic Church. Roman is an adjective describing the diocese of Rome and the rite. If you grew up in the West, you most likely belonged to the diocese of Rome.(but now a days that's not always the case). Don't you remember the Roman missal with the Roman Mass??
This is why it makes zero sense when fundamentals try to pass the Roman Catholic Church off as a separate body.'the Whore of Babylon' also makes zero sense. Fundamental arguments that the ROMAN Catholic Church corrupted Christianity and the ROMAN Catholic Church banned the Bible and the ROMAN Catholic Church deviated from the word of God. Roman Roman Roman Roman. Lol
What about the Maronite Catholic? Orthodox Catholic? Syrian, Oriental, Ethiopian, Ukrainian, Coptic Catholic??
Like Roman, those are adjectives describing the same Church, the Catholic Church.

#78. The Pharisee and the Tax Collector (Luke 18:9-14)
by Dr. Ralph F. Wilson
Luke 18:9-14
[9] To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable:[10] "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.[11] The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself:'God, I thank you that I am not like other men -- robbers, evildoers, adulterers -- or even like this tax collector.[12] I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.'
[13] "But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said,'God, have mercy on me, a sinner.'
[14] "I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted."
Exposition
If you think that looking down on others was exclusively a First Century phenomenon, think again. This parable speaks loud and clear to Twenty-First Century churches. Listen for what Jesus says to us disciples.
Self-Righteousness (18:9-10)
"To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable:'Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.' " (18:9-10)
Luke precedes the parable by naming its intended target. The first characteristic is "confident of their own righteousness." The word translated "confident" (NIV) or "trusting in" (KJV) is Greek peitho, which can mean variously, "convince, persuade, depend on, trust in, be convinced, certain."[1] "Righteousness" is Greek dikaios, "pertaining to being in accordance with high standards of rectitude,'upright, just, fair.' "[2]
Holiness churches are filled with people who are scrupulous in their observance of a rigid menu of moral standards. So are evangelical and mainline churches, Pentecostals and Catholics, Orthodox and Seventh Day Adventists. In each of our denominations there are sincere, God-fearing people who are careful to obey God as they understand his laws.
In Jesus' day the Pharisees were the strict Jews. They believed. They were disciplined. They took the Law seriously -- so seriously, in fact, that they created a "hedge" around the law, the Oral Law, with the idea that if they kept the rules of the Oral Law (the tradition of the elders), then they wouldn't break the Mosaic Law.
We too, have our "hedge" around the law. At various times and in various churches there have been rules against open-toed shoes, sleeveless dresses, slacks for women, mixed bathing, not genuflecting before the host, abstaining from wine and hard liquor, beards, smoking, drugs (but not herbs and pharmaceuticals), lack of beards, lack of head coverings, eating pork, eating any meat, drinking caffinated drinks (coffee, but hot chocolate is okay)-- have I forgotten any important ones?:-) You get the idea. None of these is stipulated clearly in the scripture, but each comes from a desire to please God and avoid godless ways.
And there's nothing wrong with rules. Each family has to have family rules. Each church needs to have family rules, too. It's a requirement of any human organization. We just need to keep our rules in perspective, and realize that they are not necessarily God's rules, but derivatives of God's rules.
A problem arises, however, when we are "confident in our own righteousness" or "trust in" our own righteousness to save us and justify us before God. When we move from righteous living -- which is right -- to trusting in that righteous living to give us a standing before God, then we commit a fatal error. In that case it becomes self-righteousness.
Looking Down on Others (18:9-10)
But when we begin to take pride in our own righteous behavior, it's very easy to look down on those who don't behave this way as morally inferior ...

We shouldn't

And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt. And when they were come into the ship, the wind ceased.

Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.
