"I test myself by a lot more than Scripture" Actually you seem to test yourself by the traditions of men. You judge a tree by its fruits.
"You wouldn't even have a Bible to worship if it weren't for the Catholic Church preserving it." Don't you mean perverting it? Apparently you don't know the origins of Scripture. And I don't worship Scripture, I worship according to Scripture. You judge a tree by its fruits.
"We do not worship Mary or statues, or the Pope. We venerate." You venerate statues in direct rebellion against God's Commands. I thought you said you study the bible. Perhaps you should read the second commandment again. You judge a tree by its fruits.
"And yes, there are many great saints, people whose lives were examples of awesome faith, people who I aspire to be like." No they are not saints just because someone says they are. There are specific qualifications for sainthood not the least of which is keeping the Commandments. You judge a tree by its fruits.
"I never posted that. Where are you getting this? Please stick to facts and reality." You said "sola scriptura is heresy". You judge a tree by its fruits.
"You are making no sense. Nothing I have posted shows any such thing and your simply pronouncing that does not make it so." You worship the non biblical teachings of the papacy therefore you worship the pope. You judge a tree by its fruits.
The catholic church is guilty of murder and lies throughout history but I guess next you will try to explain how the catholic church was doing God's will during the inquisitions. You judge a tree by its fruits!!!!!
