I take it that you either don't know the Bible, Or what the catholics teach, Because the catholic teachins does contradict the Bible.
You won't give me a chance to prove it.
Well since you are the one claiming Catholic teachings are not in line with the Bible, and you believe you can prove it, why not take the initiative yourself? Take one of the core Catholic teachings you posted earlier and illustrate how it's wrong according to the Bible.
I think it's a little unfair to claim that you can "prove" Catholic teachings wrong, then demand that Catholics offer up specific doctrines to be scrutinized. It's your claim, and as such the onus is on you to verify that claim.
Well said. I couldn't have put it better myself.
Only because you can't prove the catholic teachings are in the Bible.
I don't have to. You are the one that made thr rash claim
"Give me one catholic teaching, And I will prove to you from the Bible that it isn't scriptural."
Just admit that you cannot do it.
As I said no catholic doctrine contradicts scripture.
Here is one catholic doctrine you wont find in the Bible.
Praying to the departed, The departed praying for us, And praying for the dead.
How does that contradict scripture?
When the rich man tried to interceed for his family, Abraham rebuked him.
Would you have a reference for that?
1)Praying to the departed, and the departed praying for us, And praying for the dead, Contradict scrpture, Because they aren't found in the Bible.
How can they contradict scripture if, as you claim, they are not in scripture?
2)Lk 16: 19--31.
That's because Lazarus was not in heaven and the Saints we pray to are in heaven. The situation is not the same.
That is a cop-out, There is no scriptures that say we pray to the saints in heaven.
It doesn't contradict scripture.
The Hebrew Bible text tells us that the departed don't know what is going on in the earth, So how can they hear our prayers??.
Why is it you don't give scripture references when you make claims like that?
At the end of the Apostle Paul's life, He said he has finished his course,
Acts 20: 24. 2 Tim 4: 7.
Paul also said to the Philippian Church, "It is more needful for you if I stay".
He didn't say he would go to heaven and he will pray for us, Or he will hear and answear our prayers. Did he??
That proves nothing. You are arguing from silence.
Paul wanted to stay to continue to preach the gospel.
No point in preaching the gospel to those in heaven.
NO..NO.. When a saint has gone to be with the Lord, Their work is finnished.
Where does it say that in scripture?
1)Ecclesiastes 9: 5. &v10. Says the dead don't know anything, And don't do any work.
If the dead don't know anything, How can they know when you are praying to them??
How can they know what to pray for you and how to pray for you.
2)Stop twisting Phil 1: 24. Paul said to stay it is more needful for you.
If he went to heaven, He couldn't help them.
Preaching the gospel to the Philippian Christians wouldn't be any use to them, They were already saved, So how could Paul preaching the gospel to them, be needful???
Can't you see how you are twisting the scripturs??.
3)I have given you two scriptures where Paul mentions finishing his cours.
Act 20: 24. 2 Tim 4: 7... He never mentioned anything about going to heaven and praying for them, Or they could pray to him.
