Josiah how many times do I have to tell you?
The RCC listens to the Holy Spirit.
Accept it or reject it.
In all honesty which way you go won't change the reality that its True.
Then why does the RCC teach doctrines that are unsupported within scripture and, in many cases, 100% oppose scritpure and/or violate it? Is the Holy Spirit schizophrenic?
There is absolutely no scriptural support for priests to be celibate.
There is absolutely no scriptural support for Mary's virgin birth, being sinless, remaining a virgin, or ascending to heaven as Christ did.
There is absolutely no scriptural support for indulgences or dispensations.
There is absolutely no scriptural support for Apostolic succession.
There is absolutely no scriptural support for priests, or the Pope, or anyone else besides God being able to forgive someone's sins.
There is absolutely no scriptural support for purgatory.
There is absolutely no scriptural support for killing those who believe differently than you. A subject that you self-admittedly will not discuss because even you realize there is absolutely no way that a professing Christian could defend any of the Inquisitions.
These are just the tip of the iceberg. You bash on Luther a great deal, and I am certainly not his biggest fan since he (like the RCC has traditionally been) was a flaming anti-semite, but Luther never set out to create a different denomination. That was not his intent. He simply wanted the RCC to correct the errors which had crept into the church over time. You either do not know true RCC history, removed from what they tell you it is, or you simply do not wish
to know it. Because there are two different RCC 'histories.' The one that the RCC disseminates, and then the actual one that occured in real life. The RCC version is revisionist history and bears little resemblance to the actual history of the church. Strange that they would still attempt this since in this day and age, the actual truth is easy to find for anyone who wants to do so. So your last line is very ironic.
