Do Catholics Read The Bible? by kambo(m): 1:38pm On Dec 24, 2013
I mean main stream typical bibles . Genesis to revelation only. Not sect endorsed stuffs .
I ask cuz any casual reader of typical bible is bound to stub his foot on bumps tht clash with what he's been fed all the while in catholicism. He/she wud hav to purposely choose to continue in error afterwards.

Here's a verse: ephesians 2 v 18:
"for through him (Jesus Christ) we both have access to the Father by one spirit".
Through who do you access God?

The nxt one is a K.O.

Hebrew4v14-16:

"Therefore since we have a great high priest .... Jesus the Son of God"
A priest approaches God on behalf of His people. Clearly Jesus is the middle man.

15: for we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathise with our weaknesses , but we have one who has been tempted in every way,just are-yet as without sin."
Again, scriptures shows tht Jesus is qualified to represent man. He's worn the shoe bf and knows where it pinches. He understands our struggles.

16:
the invitation.
"let us then approach the throne of Grace (timidly,that God wud zapp us? No!) with CONFIDENCE ,
(y approach ?) so tht you may receive (you dont leave the same way u came) mercy and find grace to help us in time of need. "(in time of need wat dyu do? Call on mary/saint x or "come boldly to the throne"?)

open blatant idolatory in the name of the Christian God should b spoken against. Any sincere truth seeker in catholicism shud compare its teachg against the word of God for his own good.

How about 1 Timothy 2:5 KJV
For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
