‘You might want to go here to link below...new thread....challeges both catholics and protestants...but no the catholic church does not have the Apostolic sucession nor the authority it claims and it cannot be proven as everybody knows”

It can and has been proven. There are actually not one but two churches that have valid claims. The Catholic church and the Orthodox church.

“I am sorry you didn’t give more thought to my post...some real Gems there if you are sensitive to God’s spirit. Let Gods word be true and every man a lier.”

I have no beef with you and the workings of the spirit, just a point that I thought it necessary to add.

You say you are right of course..lol... you wouldn’t be a catholic then if you didn’t.....and no the catholic church does not have it right ...they did once for a short while and then blew it. Until they can get over their church alone being the source of salvation instead of Christ alone... not much further along than the LDS. Like them you have your fist tightly gripped around your church denomination, rituals, idols and works of which none of these can grant salvation or a Home in Heaven with Christ.

Apparently the Catholic church is afraid people will hear the true Word without their baggage added onto it.

I think it's extremely odd that you trust the El Salvadorean government to give people the "true Word".

Why would you ever want to give the government the authority to teach religion? Oh, sure, they're just going to read passages from the Bible. Which passages? From which translation? Who is going to answer any questions about the passages that students pose, and how is he/she going to answer them?

"State churches" generally have not worked out very well, at least not for the church.

The specifics do not interest me, it is the principle.

Apparently you think government promulgation of a particular religious viewpoint is, so long as it is the majority religion, a good and acceptable practice.

I disagree.

I do not think the Book of Mormon should be taught in Utah, nor that Mormonism should be the official state religion of Utah; despite it being the majority faith. The same PRINCIPLE applies to Catholicism, Protestant faiths, Eastern Orthodox, Christian Scientist, Scientologists, Armenian Christian, Islam, Rastafarianism, Hinduism, Quakers, Shakers or Moneymakers. ;)

The original faith structure of our nation was not and is not in any way based upon government structured promotion of a particular religious viewpoint; but upon the faith freely exercised in homes and churches throughout our blessed land of religious and secular liberty.

“Our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty” Samuel Adams

“they did once for a short while and then blew it.’

When did this occur?

“Until they can get over their church alone being the source of salvation instead of Christ’

You are wrong. We do not teach, extra ecclesium nulla salus. God will save those whom he will save. We do believe that we are the Church Christ founded.
