Answering Ryan Foley

Why Catholicism is EVIL
Ryan Foley, 29 May 2023

0:36 You seem to have read a few verses and imagined to yourself what they imply, and concluded they are at variance with what you think Catholicism implies.

You can have access to the Father by a fellow on Earth praying for you, or not?

If yes, then you can so through Mary and the Saints in Heaven praying for you as well.

If no, you have an issue with everything saying to "pray for one another"

1:28 No Catholic ever was a red letter Christian. No Catholic says St. Paul contains error.

1:43 None of the three verses exclude Saints, Mary or Rosary.

2:23 Before you dismiss "the Church is the foundation," how about getting to St. Paul again?

But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.
1 Timothy 3:15

Ground means foundation. St. Paul actually says what those priests told you, the Church is the foundation.

2:27 Ouch! King James is a fake translation!

Greek, Syriac, Coptic all have "stutter-speech" or "stuttering" and Latin has "many words" - Our Lord is speaking about holding speeches to the gods (or in some cases, which He deplores, to God) because you are nervous about getting heard like someone stuttering, and you make fine speeches to bolster your odds.

Not only is this the fact about the text (prior to the fake translation King James), but since Our Lord specifies "like the heathen" it is a very clear fact about Greco-Roman prayer.

So, what do you hope to prove by translating the Bible wrong?

2:54 Matthew 6:7
  • does not forbid saying a short prayer over and over again
  • does not forbid saying a prayer someone else said.

It DOES forbid holding speeches to God to really in detail explain what you want or why your request is a pious one.

3:02 If the command you refer to means what you think it means, St. Paul broke it.

He told one of the local Churches "I am your father"

For if you have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet not many fathers. For in Christ Jesus, by the gospel, I have begotten you
1 Corinthians 4:15

St. Paul was asking every Corinthian Christian to call him father.

But take a closer look:

in Christ Jesus, ...I have begotten you

And call none your father upon earth; for one is your father, who is in heaven.
Matthew 23:9

Our Lord is forbidding us to take mentors.
