That is exactly the point in question.
Since the Holy Spirit cannot err, then the only explaination for over 33,000 protestant sects is; individuals cannot read and understand scripture correctly.
Seek guidance from The Catholic Church in understanding The Bible we compiled and published.
Only the producer of the book can direct you in interpretation.
The real question is..........
Will you humble yourself before God's Holy Spirit or continue in your self-prideful ways?

THE BIBLE DOES NOT SAY ...

Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall ATTEND MASS

OR GO THROUGH ROMAN CATHOLIC RULES, LAWS, RITUALS AND CALISTHENIC

SHALL BE SAVED

IT RATHER SAYS..

JESUS SAID...

Mar_16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Joh_3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Joh_3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Joh_3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Joh_5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Eph 2:4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,

Eph_2:5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ,(by grace ye are saved;)

Eph_2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Act_16:31 ....... Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

.Rom 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Quote Scripture that teaches the opposite of the following and you have a fallible Bible..
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.
I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea:I commend unto you Phebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea: That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatsoever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many, and of myself also.
She was a servant and helped many....
Servant: a person employed by another, esp. to perform domestic duties.
2. a person in the service of another.
3. a person employed by the government: a public servant.
Show me the word "pastor" in that definition.

----------
Check out the word 'servant' in the Greek language...it is better translated 'pastor'.

Also check out Paul's word to the Corinthians. "You are yet 'carnal' and cannot take meat, but must be fed on milk as babes." They allowed sex sin, and squabbled among themselves (so much for that 'perfect' catholic church in the beginning!)

Pope: Other denominations not true churches
Benedict issues statement asserting that Jesus established ‘only one church’

http://www.nbcnews.com/id/19692094/ns/world_n...

LORENZAGO DI CADORE, Italy — Pope Benedict XVI has reasserted the universal primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, approving a document released Tuesday that says Orthodox churches were defective and that other Christian denominations were not true churches.
Benedict approved a document from his old offices at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith that restates church teaching on relations with other Christians.
On Saturday, Benedict revisited another key aspect of Vatican II by reviving the old Latin Mass . Traditional Catholics cheered the move, but more liberal ones called it a step back from Vatican II.

Pope Francis Condemns Racism And Declares That “All Religions Are True” At Historic Third Vatican Council | Diversity Chronicle

•December 24, 2013

For the last six months, Catholic cardinals, bishops and theologians have been deliberating in Vatican City, discussing the future of the church and redefining long-held Catholic doctrines and dogmas. The Third Vatican Council, is undoubtedly the largest and most important since the Second Vatican Council was concluded in 1962. Pope Francis convened the new council to “finally finish the work of the Second Vatican Council.”

“Through humility, soul searching, and prayerful contemplation we have gained a new understanding of certain dogmas. The church no longer believes in a literal hell where people suffer. This doctrine is incompatible with the infinite love of God. God is not a judge but a friend and a lover of humanity. God seeks not to condemn but only to embrace. Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God” Pope Francis declared.

In a speech that shocked many, the Pope claimed “All religions are true, because they are true in the hearts of all those who believe in them. What other kind of truth is there? In the past, the church has been harsh on those it deemed morally wrong or sinful. Today, we no longer judge. Like a loving father, we never condemn our children. Our church is big enough for heterosexuals and homosexuals, for the pro-life and the pro-choice! For conservatives and liberals, even communists are welcome and have joined us. We all love and worship the same God.”

1.“God is changing and evolving as we are, For God lives in us and in our hearts.

2.The Bible is a beautiful holy book, but like all great and ancient works, some passages are outdated.

3.Like the fable of Adam and Eve, we see hell as a literary device. Hell is merely a metaphor for the isolated soul, which like all souls ultimately will be united in love with God” Pope Francis declared.

In accordance with our new understanding, we will begin to ordain women as cardinals, bishops and priests.

All churches are true now, Pope said. So why do you contnue to condemn "Protestant churches? Keep up man!

I'll never follow a man who says the Words of God are outdated or calls the Words of God "fables". What's the point of even reading scripture? Pope says that hell is just a metaphor and I'll be united with God anyway.

Celibacy is not a doctrine of The Church, but a discipline of choice.
There are many married Catholic clergy, they are known as permanent Deacons
However, the candidates for orders are solemnly warned by the bishop at the beginning of the ceremony regarding the gravity of the obligation which they are incurring.
He tells them:
"You ought anxiously to consider again and again what sort of a burden this is which you are taking upon you of your own accord. Up to this you are free. You may still, if you choose, turn to the aims and desires of the world. But if you receive this order it will no longer be lawful to turn back from your purpose. You will be required to continue in the service of God, and with His assistance to observe chastity and to be bound for ever in the ministrations of the Altar, to serve who is to reign."
http://newadvent.org/cathen/03481a.htm
In Matthew 19:12, Christ clearly commends those who, "for the sake of the kingdom of God", have held aloof from the married state, though He adds: "he who can accept it, let him accept it".
St. Paul is even more explicit:
"I would that all men were even as myself; but every one hath his proper gift from God .... But I say to the unmarried and to the widows, it is good for them if they so continue, even as I.
And further on:
"But I would have you to be without solicitude. He that is without a wife is solicitous for the things that belong to the Lord, how he may please God. But he that is with a wife, is solicitous for the things of the world, how he may please his wife: and he is divided. And the unmarried woman and the virgin thinketh on the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and spirit. But she that is married thinketh on the things of this world how she may please her husband. And this I speak for your profit, not to cast a snare upon you, but for that which is decent and which may give you power to attend upon the Lord without impediment." (1 Corinthians 7:7-8 and 32-35)
You don't know your own history?

The first written mandate requiring priests to be chaste came in AD 304. Canon 33 of the Council of Elvira stated that all"bishops, presbyters, and deacons and all other clerics" were to"abstain completely from their wives and not to have children." A short time later, in 325, the Council of Nicea, convened by Constantine, rejected a ban on priests marrying requested by Spanish clerics.The practice of priestly celibacy began to spread in the Western Church in the early Middle Ages. In the early 11th century Pope Benedict VIII responded to the decline in priestly morality by issuing a rule prohibiting the children of priests from inheriting property. A few decades later Pope Gregory VII issued a decree against clerical marriages.

The Church was a thousand years old before it definitively took a stand in favor of celibacy in the twelfth century at the Second Lateran Council held in 1139, when a rule was approved forbidding priests to marry. In 1563, the Council of Trent reaffirmed the tradition of celibacy.Several explanations have been offered for the decision of the Church to adopt celibacy. Barry University's Ed Sunshine told Knight-Ridder that the policy was initiated to distinguish the clergy as a special group:"A celibate clergy became the paradigm of separation from the sinful world." A.W. Richard Sipe, a former priest and author of Sex, Priests and Power: The Anatomy of Crisis (1995), told Knight-Ridder that the"question at the time was who is the final power -- the king or the church. If [the church] could control a person's sex life, it could control their money, their employment, their benefice." Garry Wills suggested in Under God that the ban on marriage was adopted to lift the status of priests at a time when their authority was being challenged by nobles and others.- See more at: http://hnn.us/article/696#sthash.8U1h4VYD.dpu...

The Pope first said the Catholic churche is the only true church and they believed him?

In 2013 the Pope declared that all churches are true but the Catholics on this forum won't except it.Does the Pope have it wrong or just his followers?
