Man's word vs. God's WORD. (This is a no brainer).
II Timothy 3:16, STUDY to show thySELF approved unto God, a WORKman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD OF TRUTH.
Study is self work. No one can do it for you.
Hebrews 5:12-14 For when for the time YE OUGHT TO BE TEACHERS, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat. For every one that useth milk is unskillful in the word of righteousness: FOR HE IS A BABE. But strong meat (KJB) belongeth to them that are of full age, even those by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.
Milk (modern perversions) vs. Strong Meat (The King James Bible). (This is a no brainer).

I am afraid I am too long in the tooth to be troubled by your false statement. As you are a RC sympathiser what will you say about this website by a Maltese former RC? Do you understand WHY? he has such a website? He doesn't believe RC's are his brothers, but he loves them and desires to see many come to a true saving knowledge of Christ, just like himself.

Well please give some links to those who you claim are justified by faith alone and presently still at home in the RC 'church' and explain how they still hold to the blasphemous mass etc.?
Do you believe that regeneration is the sole work of the HS? Would the same HOLY SPIRIT OF TRUTH leave a new born babe in the midst of such antichristian blasphemy?
Read the tract posted previously and please comment on that.
I am acquainted with few converted former RC's and they do not hold your view as it is incompatible with Holy Scripture and the gospel.
"If you, with a good knowledge of Romanism, can maintain that there are Romanists who are true Christians, I fear for your own soul; you clearly do not know Christ or his Gospel. I exhort you to "search the scriptures" (Jn.5:39); for the "Gospel" you have embraced is not the Gospel of Christ. And to those Roman Catholics who claim to be "born again," "saved," etc., even though you remain in the Roman Catholic institution, I say this: you have been deceived. You are still dead in trespasses and sins (Eph.2:1). Repent! Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ! And come out of Babylon!"
