I’ll stick with what God says in the scriptures and ignore the Fairy Tales put out by your religion...
Good for you. I hope it all works out for you in the end.
Me, I will stick with the True Faith given to us by Our Lord, and cared for by the Apostles and their successors under the protection of the Paraclete. After over 2,000 years, they seem to still be doing their job well and He is still in charge.
You say you will stick with the Scriptures.
Who are the apostles listed in the Bible?
To whom did Christ say, “Feed my lambs.”, “Tend my sheep.”, “Feed my sheep.” It’s in Scripture — Christ said these to Peter.
To whom did Christ give the Keys to the Kingdom? It’s in Scripture?
Who carries on the work of Christ in the Book of Acts? The Apostles, Peter, etc.
It’s in Scripture.
Are you forgetting these things from Scripture?
Cool! They posted to you the YOPIOS cereal box. The true sign of desperation when they can no longer argue and have to resort to insults. You can consider that a win on your part.

What scriptures are you reading?
The New Testament of the Bible did not exist for 300 years after Christ ascended into heaven. And it was assembled by the council of Catholic Bishops under the authority of the Pope in Rome. This was to protect the Truth that Christ taught, and weed out the erroneus teachings and heresies which sprung up almost immediately after Christ ascended.
Christ instructed his disciples to go out and “make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:20) He did not tell them to go out and write a book.
The gospel of John concludes with these words: “There are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written.” (John 21:24)
These are the reasons that the Catholic Church emphasizes that we must look to both the scriptures and the traditions of the early Christian church to gain a more complete understanding of Christ’s teachings. Read the writings of the early Church Fathers to learn more about these traditions, which included the univeral acceptance of Peter as the Bishop of Rome, and his successors, as the head of His church on earth (all of whom, for the first 300 years, suffered martyrdom for their faith in Christ).
Since the Protestant schism, there are now thousands of contradictary interpretations of the scriptures. This goes against Christ’s prayer that all of His followers would be one, just as He and His Father were one.
So, who is following Christ and who is following “Fairy Tales?” I pray that our Protestant brethren will reconsider the effects of their contrary opinions on the unity Jesus desired for His church.
let's see now...the same religion that codified, interpreted, salvaged, catalogued, preserved, hand copied, etc etc...the scriptures just casually threw in a bunch of fairy tales to confuse the masses....Hm-m-m-m-m does that really sound logical to you....and while this was all going on, where was your "denomination"????? Oh that's right, wouldn't even be thought up for 1,600 or so years!!
