I cannot speak for the proliferation of Protestant churches nor did I claim to. As for the Bible John 17:17 “Sanctify them through thy Truth, Thy Word is Truth.” Your church makes the Bible something lesser. It has to do this to claim the authority it desires. Claiming church authority verses that were wrote centuries before the Catholic church was in existence. Claiming papal Petrine authority when there is no evidence that the other apostles went to Peter for his supreme leadership skills or authority. Your church strains credulity for its many atrocities in its history. Perhaps it will once again climb to its former glory and cut BipolarBobs tongue out for being a heretic? You and your friends would gloat at my demise, but that’s okay, this world is losing its luster and my life is a small price to pay for my Master.

Didn’t you previously stated that you don’t lose any sleep over what books constitute Sacred Scripture? That doesn’t sound like an elevated view of Scripture.
We know the cannon of Scripture with certainty because an infallible source determined it.
If the Church that wrote, preserved and canonized the Bible is fallible, than the Bible would have to be fallible.
Protestantism saws off the branch it’s standing on.
At least the Catholic position is logically coherent. An infallible Church wrote, preserved and canonized Sacred Scripture.
