[quote=Semper Fi]Excuse me sir, but Catholics were the first Christians.
This is true based on facts and history.
Without us, you would have no Bible.
True again but, they might still have an OT. They let non-Christians edit their OT after all. They allowed it in in the 1500’s by Luther when he tried to delete 11+ books of Scripture. Also later in the 1800’s (English publishing houses)when they followed NON-Christian cannon for their OT decided on by a small isolated group of non-Christians in 90 A.D.
You wouldn’t know what to call your Bible (since the word Bible is not in there),
Yes they would only they would call it the Book Of Mormon or something like that.
you would not know when to celebrate Christmas, Easter, etc.
You mean like the JW’s! Or the SDA’s without Christian Sunday worship.
There are so many versions of the Protestant Bible with conflicting verses and such. The one thing they all have in common is the proof that anyone can write their own Bible and sell it. No authority needed. The Catholic Church on the other hand has the authority and duty given her by God to maintain the purity of Scripture. Thus fewer versions but more acurate ones.
