You are well indoctrinated. As the Muslim world, you have been taught from birth that there is only one way to God.
Yet, you have a group of MEN who claim to be direct conduits for God's Grace. This same group of alleged Holy men is filled with pederasts and homosexuals, and protected by those to whom they claim allegiance.
The Roman Catholic Church may have given the world some good things, but it does not speak for God. It only speaks for the Church, and requires membership in an organization of men for Salvation. It glories in it's riches and brags about it's supposed dispensation of the only truth.
The RC's build idols and worship to them, yet decry that as nothing more than "adoration". They elevate persons to sainthood status, yet they cannot accept the Scriptures saying that God is NOT A RESPECTER of persons.
The Roman Catholic Church has no hold on the truth. Only Jesus is the way, the Truth, and the Life...
Show the role of the RC organization in the Scriptures... without the overview provided by your leaders. I doubt it can be done.
The RCC is the ultimate "do as I say, not what I do"!
Paul made clear about the Roman Church:
Romans 8: 9 You, however, are not in the realm of the flesh but are in the realm of the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ, they do not belong to Christ. 10 But if Christ is in you, then even though your body is subject to death because of sin, the Spirit gives life because of righteousness. 11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligationbut it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live.
14 For those who are led by the Spirit of God are the children of God. 15 The Spirit you received does not make you slaves, so that you live in fear again; rather, the Spirit you received brought about your adoption to sonship.[f] And by him we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are Gods children. 17 Now if we are children, then we are heirsheirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. ...
So yeah. If not for the church, we would not have the Bible; this is not in doubt. That the church was Catholic at the time is not in doubt either.
Before this completely breaks out in to a Catholic bashing thread -
I did want to say thanks for posting the article!
PS - Only Catholics go to heaven. (kidding)
