[quote=aurora77]I had to bump this thread.
I’ve just started reading The Gospel According to Rome. I’ve been having a friendly Catholic/Protestant discussion with a guy from work. He loaned me this book, I gave him Rome Sweet Home. Anyway, I’m finding this book hysterical. Has anyone actually checked a lot of his scripture references? I’m shocked with how irrelevant they tend to be to the point he’s trying to make. I’m specifically referring to the end of each section where he lists what the Church teaches and then what the Bible teaches, as though they are two different things. A large number of his citations don’t match his points.
What’s really sad is my friend has a couple of friends who used to be Catholics–they said this is the book that got them out of the church. :banghead: I desperately want to ask him if they ever read their Bible or actually talked to a priest or attended Mass, how on earth they could buy into his nonsense. But, that would be rude, so I won’t. It’s just so sad that this man was able to draw them (and probably many others) out of the Chuch.
Well, there are worse things than being rude! You might want to go ahead and ask those questions anyway, in as nice a way as possible. Remember, there are souls at risk here.
