This is consistent with the Catholic view that I have been presented. Seeing as how you agreed with this statement, do either of you mind if I tell other people that Catholics believe that only bishops should read the scriptures? :)
The Catholics don't believe in prooftexting; my comment merely illustrates that one who prooftexts could easily prooftext in the Catholic direction.
The Catholic church teaches that anyone can read the scripture but guidance of the Church is necessary if he wishes to understand it.
