LEST said: “Anyone who studies the Catholic Church with an open heart could not say what you’ve said and believe it.”
Mormons will tell you the same thing about the Book of Mormon. I would respond that anyone who has read the Bible and believes it, cannot in good conscience be either a Roman Catholic or a Mormon.

“Same Gospel as all other Christian religions.”
First, there is only one Christian religion, and unfortunately for you, the RCC is not that Christian religion. Originating in Rome some 300 years after the founding of Christ’s Church, the RCC more resembles a cult of Christianity than the Church Christ built and of which He is the Head.
But there is some truth to what you say in that aside from the inclusion of the Apocrypha, the Catholic Bible is identical to Protestant Bibles in terms of the canon. As understood however, nothing could be further from the truth concerning the Gospel.
Hey PERV, your comments only reveal your ignorance of the Bible. Perhaps you should find out for yourself what it says rather than relying on your mush brained buddies on the atheist sites. They don’t have a clue either, and you just make the same fool of yourself that they do when you parrot their ridiculously stupid talking points. You’re doing yourself a great disfavor.

The problem for your is that the gotquestions site makes arguments that you can’t answer and points out heretical teachings of the Roman Church that you cannot dispute. Otherwise you would, rather than just dismissing the entire site and everything in it out of hand. What are the chances that absolutely nothing they say about the RCC is true?
Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain, is basically what you are saying.
In fact, I challenge you to prove something wrong. Pick any of the sites I’ve referenced and address them point by point rather than taking the cowards way out as you have done here by pooh-poohing the site.
I also suggest that you read “Roman Catholics and Evangelicals” Agreements and Differences by Geisler and MacKenzie. (A Roman Catholic and an Evangelical) and enlighten yourself. You don’t know as much as you think you do.
“Give a room of 10 people a Scripture and you’ll have 10 different interpretations. Is that any way to protect Christ’s teachings?”
No. The way to protect Christ’s teachings is to write them down (which God did, see the Bible) and then don’t corrupt them with the teachings of men, as the RCC has done. The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit will lead us to understanding as we read the Bible, so who shall we believe? The RCC (the teachings of men) or the Bible (the teachings of Jesus Christ). Seems like a no brainer to me, but that requires a properly functioning brain to begin with.
“and those bleating about what is written in the bible forget that the bible was written by man, and collated by man, and that sadly man’s own bias and intentions colored what we read…

“Wait, do you people actually believe there was a literal sodom and gomorah and someone turned to salt and died because they looked at it like in Raiders of the Lost Ark?”
We believe it is possible, so do many noted historians and archeologists, and they would probably tell you that you are a complete idiot if you dismiss it for no other reason than your sinful pride.
“Is that something you really believe could happen if too many people who happen to be the same gender have consensual sex?”
Is that what the Bible says will happen or is your ignorant comment because you haven’t read it? Of course anything “could” happen that God Willed, and especially if the Bible says it could happen, and we believe that because there are many things that did happen, and the Bible has been proved wrong about absolutely nothing. The Bible says unrepentant homosexuals are damned and we dismiss your taunting as naive, unlearned and immature. Pride is our worst enemy.
I suggest you waste no more time in getting down on your knees and repenting of your sins, humbling yourself before your Lord and Master Jesus Christ, asking for forgiveness and for the Holy Spirit to lead you to understanding as you read the Bible.

Q. What does the Bible say about confessing our sins to a Roman Catholic Priest?
What’s really sad is how ill-informed Roman Catholics are when it comes to the Word of God. We don’t bash you for that, we try and point out your ignorance, but your intellectual dishonesty only proves to us that you can’t fix stupid.
We aren’t anti-Catholic, we’re anti-heresy and your cult teaches a lot of that. When we try to correct you the hate comes out. But you are not justified in your anger. Read “Roman Catholics and Evangelicals” by Geisler and MacKenzie and educate yourselves to your ignorance. You really look stupid spewing the garbage you do.

This was reported at the time, in fact there was discussion of it here.
“Are you really a Sojourner Of Truth or just another anti-catholic who believes anything he/she reads as long as it puts the Church in a bad light?”
Why don’t you stop your pathetic and constant whining every time someone points out the disonancy your pagan cult has with the Word of God. Better yet, why don’t you and Francis sit down sometime and just read a Bible for crying out loud, rather than wasting your time worshipping idols as you do?
