I see no such admission there.Definitely not in the sense that you seem to want to take it.
However, Let’s pose that question to you.
“Why do you accept doctrines of men?” The essential doctrine of Sola Scriptura is a gross fundamental error in teaching and itself is not found taught within the Word of God. It is only about 50 years old and would indeed qualify as a modern new wind of doctrine of men.
Furthermore, it has lead to a myriad of equally errant teachings and doctrines, (Sola Fide for example) which plague n-C Christianity today.
You obvoiusly didn’t read the warning in Rev.2218, “I warn everyone who hears the word of prophecy of this book; and If anyone adds anything to them, God will add the plagues described in this book”
Perhaps you didn’t read it in context yourself, but that passage applies to the prophecies of the book of Revelation, not the whole Bible.
Even so, the Catholic Church has never added to the Bible, but many -Cs have removed the Deuterocanonical books from the Bible without any greater authority that the will of some man, or at best, a “Bible Society” in the mid 1800s.
A careful check of all the earliest discussions of the Canon of inspired writings will readily show that they affirmed a 73 book canon.
you may want to ponder on the following.
The following list give a summation of what we have been trying to emphasize. If the Bible is a Catholic book,
- Why does it condemn clerical dress? (Matt. 23:5-6).
You may want to do your own homework and not rely on virulently anti-Catholic websites like that one.
It doesn’t. That verse condemns hypocrisy not clothes. :rolleyes:
- Why does it teach against the adoration of Mary? (Luke 11:27-28).
Find me any authentic and authoritative Catholic document that teaches such a thing.
You can’t do so because there is no such thing.
- Why does it show that all Christians are priests? (1 Pet. 2:5,9).
Funny, the homily last Sunday was on that very thing. But there is a difference in the New Testament between the ministerial priesthood and the priesthood of all believers. The New Testament makes that very clear, else why did they lay hands on men and ordain them in the churches that they founded?
- Why does it condemn the observance of special days? (Gal. 4:9-11).
Does it? No, it does not. in fact it actually condemns your remark here when it says, [FONT=Palatino Linotype]" Let no man therefore judge you in meat or in drink, or in respect of a festival day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbaths, 17 Which are a shadow of things to come, but the body is of Christ." (Colossians 2)
- Why does it teach that all Christians are saints? (1 Cor. 1:2).
The Catholic Church teaches that same thing, but only a blind person would ever try to assert that some are not more exemplary than others and that is acknowledged by the Catholic Church’s canonization.
