but with that thinking, that allows for anyone to say anything to bolster their version of scripture and christianity...and who is to determine what is to be ‘sought out’ and considered right, if you have no divinely appointed authority, as the catholic church has?

“if you have no divinely appointed authority, as the catholic church has?”
I don’t believe they do. Can you describe the divine intervention they have been provided?
