1) Catholics are Christians. They are, in fact, THE Christians.
2) “But, as a CHRISTIAN, your duty is to study, understand and obey God, as led by the Holy Spirit, through the Scriptures.”

3) “Jesus Christ is your ONLY role model.”

Amy body that follows a man-inspried religion belongs to a cult, not to God! Christians are any people that follow God's Word and seek His face. You can post all your catechism-based drivel but it does not meet the test of FAITH in Christ. Yours is faith in men, singularly a man proclaimed to speak for God, but who is indeed just as fallible as any other man/woman.
