A Catholic right here at FR told me Catholics dont read the Bible...I agree with your take but Catholics apparently dont read the Bible, or if they do it`s secondary to what some old Fart in a funny hat says
Second hand religion is when you can’t pray to God yourself for your sins or forgiveness, and you get someone else to tell you, through the Bible, and what God meant.
We are to come to God ourselves and read it for our own knowledge. People are easily deceived when they let someone else direct their faith, without direct prayer and reading the living word and letting it minister to their hearts.
They add their man-made amendments and then forbid Catholics to read the Bible.
Their Bible studies consists of re-constructing the Bible in a way that supports their heretical belief.
Pray for our Catholic brothers and sisters. Pray that they may see the Truth.
Pray that they may escape the cult that holds them hostage.
Catholics WROTE the Bible and the first old fart with a funny hat was St Peter. And your "denomination" was started by_____________??????
Must have been one of those faux Catholics. And even if...at mass we have 3 readings and a Psalm from the Bible and most of what the priest says comes directly from the Bible and his homily is a reflection of that day’s Gospel.
Oh, please. I am Catholic....I attend weekly Bible study and read/pray my Bible daily. Get a life. These attacks on Catholics are unChristian and beneath a FReeper.
