How to answer "man-rules" issue of Catholic church

If “manmade” is the litmus, that eliminates ALL Protestants, as in 100% regardless of stripe.:wink:

Do you know where THAT particular precept came from? scroll down to the bottom of the post and [Heb 10…]

marriage is a covenant. The man and woman give the sacrament to each other in the presence of God in the blessed sacrament… making God the 3rd person in the covenant.

Therefore, a Catholic Church is the propper place to effect the covenant

It’s an argument usually, (not always) used by people who like to break rules.
