I’m sure you’ve heard all this before. You know the catholic church is responsible for you having a bible?
Do you believe in the Trinity? You know the word Trinity is not in the bible?
What did the people do for the first few hundered years when there was no bible?
References to purgatory are in the bible. You believe in the Trinity and that’s not in the bible, yet there are references to the Trinity.
You, in a sense, are a ‘co-redemptor’, you co-operate in the work of redemption. Which Christ sent us out to do. You also, in a sense, are a ‘mediator’ when you agree to pray for other people. What’s the big deal? Just because you don’t understand it, and I’m sure you haven’t researched it, doesn’t mean it’s not biblically based.
And, you know, Luther even expounded on what happens when everybody interprets scripture for themselves, which you have done. How unfortunate, you don’t have the fullness of Christian faith. If you only knew what you were missing.
Still not a single Biblical reference in your argument.
Sorry. The Catholics don’t get to just make stuff up out of thin air and call it tradition.
The ONLY truth is in the Bible.
Where is the verse showing people praying to the deceased?
its not there.
Where is the part that tells us Mary was without sin or a virgin after the birth of Jesus?
Its not there. it was just made up. its false. a lie.
