you had the chance to read a bible? How did the bible get preserved? How did Christian history get preserved for thousands of years? The main responsibility of the Catholic Institution was to preserve Christianity during a very violent and chaotic time. It still has this responsibility. Because the Catholic Church maintained the Christian tradition for so long, many other groups were able to read the bible and choose to form their own groups. So yes, I agree, human run Institutions have a tendency to grow rigid and corrupt if they are not cultivated and cared for by the members. Sometimes it takes extreme events to wake up the membership. In my opinion, the Catholic Church is no longer persecuting others. The Institution and membership are growing up. There are some other Christian groups that embrace bigotry and have forgotten who made their existence possible.
