"Protestantism has our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus as the Chief Cornerstone of the Church, not the Pope. Those who call their denomination the Church, fail to exercise faith through Christ, when they place the Pope between any believer and God."

Repeated hogwash is still hogwash. Protestants declare that the objective standard for any discussion is an unconditional acceptance of Sola Scripture which the Catholic Church rejects. The Bible, as wonderful as it is, does not contain 100% of the revealed Word. Declaring so is to obsolete the presence ans role of the Holy Spirit in our lives and elevates those 16th century heretics who corrupted the Scripture to the status of Apostles.

The comment about the role of the Pope is just plain ignorant. The whole purpose of the Church is to educate, serve and facilitate ones personal salvation.

“The Bible, as wonderful as it is, does not contain 100% of the revealed Word.”

And just where did you come up with this opinion?
