|Does the Catholic church OWN the WORDs in the BIBLE?|
Owner of the bible? ok dearest if you insist then kindly SHOW us the document to SUBSTANTIATE your CLAIM.
You said "I have shown to you the different types of apostasies/heresies and the time when they occurred over the centuries."
Different types of APOSTASY? really? can you find a bible verse regarding the teaching of the DIFFERENT TYPEs of APOSTASY? or is this just your mentors way of ELUDING the original PROPONENT of the APOSTASY? Kindly SUBSTANTIATE what your saying dear if you do own the bible. Where in your BIBLE is this teaching of DIFFERENT TYPES of APOSTASY?
If you FAIL to PROVIDE this then you and your mentors are in way ELUDING the ISSUE on who is the ORIGINAL PROPONENT of the APOSTASY.
Do REMEMBER dearest what Apostle Paul CLEARLY TAUGHT. Even WRITTEN in your BIBLE on WHEN & WHERE these SAVAGE WOLVEs will come. Of MEN WHO WILL DISTORT THE TRUTH.
So let me BRING it up again. apostle Paul said the AFTER THEY LEAVE thats WHEN these SAVAGE WOLVEs will come. These MEN WHO WILL DISTORT THE TRUTH.
So on what you said " I will not address the issue of Apostolic Succession. That is a separate issue and should be treated separately"
Dearest again it seems your the one AVOIDING the issue and question at hand. The issue is on the APOSTASY. And you ask HOW AND WHEN.
So HOW can APOSTASY occur if we do not FACE the MATTER at HAND. Especially the ORIGINAL PROPONENT of the APOSTASY. And Apostle Paul CLEARLY without a doubt pointed out that THESE SAVAGE WOLVES and MEN WHO WILL DISTORT THE TRUTH will COME AFTER THEY LEAVE.
Take note again dearest DON'T AVOID ...the MEN WHO WILL DISTORT THE TRUTH will COME AFTER THE APOSTLES HAD LEFT. So don't make EXCUSES about this dear for its not a SEPARATE ISSUE. it is a very RELEVANT ISUE as this will ADDRESS with all CLARITY on the ORIGINAL PROPONENT of the APOSTASY.
Although we both KNOW who that is dearest lets see if you can ACCEPT the TRUTH on the MATTER and ANSWER the question dearest don't avoid it and make excuses. Answer the simple question
"Who SUCCEEDED the APOSTLEs after THEY LEFT?"
For then you will KNOW now WHO is the ORIGINAL PROPONENT of the APOSTASY dearest.
Take note dearest that the apostles NEVER taught of DIFFERENT TYPES of APOSTASIES. We can be sure of it. Unless you can SUBSTANTIATE that by providing us the bible verses regarding it.
The ones who taught that is most definitely the ones who ORIGINATED from the ORIGINAL PROPONENTs of the APOSTASY.
You can SUBSTANTIATE what I said by answering the question on who is teaching that they succeeded the apostles.
