Lets go with the argument that this means the whole bible, which wasn't compiled yet just for argument sake. Although it doesn't, but I will entertain your personal interpretation and eisegesis of the text.
As it is written, Adding to Words of the book, or taking away words of the book in context. What book, you allude to it being the entire bible.
That would be condemning Protestantism, being, they removed 7 books of the bible.
The Catholic Church didn't add books. This can be proven throughout history.
So, according to this specific prophesy, as interpreted through your (pastor's because lets face it, you must be taught this tradition) eisegesis, you condemn Protestantism at large!
If this passage of the scriptures meant what you think it means, then prove that the Catholic Church added the seven books and you have made your point. Easy enough task :thumbsup: (Albeit to yourself, and others that have been taught by tradition, how to eisegete the scriptures in order to interpret the text to conform to your preconcieved notion)
"Your design clearly is to deprive Scripture of all authority and to make every man's mind the authority of what he is to approve or disapprove of. This is not to be subject to Scripture, but to make Scripture subject to you. If you discard authority, to what, I beseech you, will you take yourself?" (Reply to Faustus the Manichaean, 32:19 [A.D. 400])
The Church didn't always have the 7 books in their bible, I read the history. What do those books add, purgatory and payment for prayers? I know the CC doesn't like personal interpretation of scripture that is obvious. No reason really for a Catholic to have a Bible, the Church will teach you all you need to know.
