Of course you would say that. Why do you think I quoted that one single line in your post?
John 10:34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in YOUR LAW, ‘I said, “YOU ARE GODS”?
They will dictate to you their truths and as you submit your worship to them. That’s all they want. 35% of American Christians are COMPLETELY DECEIVED by them, and serve under them. It’s idol worship that’s all it is.
IE: Christianity is now a relationship in America. People here in the forum will say the same. But NO ONE ever ponders if the rest of the world says the same and where these even came from.
Here’s what the Pope Says on this matter: “There are those who believe they can maintain a PERSONAL…RELATIONSHIP with Jesus Christ outside the communion and the mediation of the Church. These are DANGEROUS and HARMFUL TEMPTATIONS. These are, as the great Paul VI said, ABSURD DICHOTOMIES”. -Pope France, June 25, 2014
What the Anabaptists say on this matter: (35% of American Christianity, 40,000 sects) say on this matter:
-“Many Catholics do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and find their so called “faith” in participating in the sacraments. They are walking by sight and not by faith. People need to read their bibles and grow closer to Christ, not the mass and certainly NOT A PIECE OF BREAD” I grew up Catholic. Went to a Catholic School all of High School and Elementary. I left because I do not believe the Catholic Church is truly biblical. (The good old ‘grew up Catholic’. Catholics say ‘cradle Catholic’. I’d wager this person was never legally baptized as a baby, and was never Catholic. They work against the Church out in the world and claim souls. You guys have no idea)

CURIOSITY: What does a LIBERAL PROTESTANT ANGLICAN PRIEST SAY?
"I remember as a teenager explaining to a non-Christian friend how Christianity was a “relationship and not a religion.” I think about that conversation now with embarrassment not only because I was speaking in clichés but also because what I was telling my friend isn’t true.
"this way of thinking about Christianity is a perversion of the gospel. Christ didn’t incarnate, endure torture, die, and resurrect in order to save me individually. He saved a people. Not only that, he established a church. He gave his kingdom to the church. He sent his Holy Spirit to the church.
