The Catholic church declares the Bible not a textbook for the Christian faith?
I do believe the following verses have proven the Roman Catholic church has been caught red handed telling bold face lies. This not only proves they lied, it also exposes WHY they preach the Bible is "...a dead and speechless book." They hope to keep the masses out of the Bible mainly because once they open one, they realize who the liar truly is.
The Bible declares it teaches...
