    An interesting thing happened today to me. We are still at Cleveland Clinic with my son, waiting for him to have some seizures so the Drs can detect what part of the brain they are coming from. I was talking to a woman about the different languages. We are staying at the Ronald McDonald house and there are people from all over the world here. From Kuwait, to Brazil, to Korea, to Spain.
    I was in the Kitchen eating a bowl of cereal just listening to the differing languages.
    Anyway, when I went back over to the hospital, I started talking to the grandmother of the other patient in my son's room.
    We were talking about what languages we knew.
    I told her that I want to learn Greek to better understand the NT.
    She told me that a friend of her's gave her a pamphlet on which Bible was the only true, inspired Bible.
    I immediately thought of a Riplinger tract, i read last week, and I told her it didn't matter which main stream Bible she used as long as she used it. We then started talking about the differing versions,and then she said something that blew me away.

    She stated that a nun gave her the pamphlet.
    And that she was told only the Catholic Bible is the correct one.

    What do you know? The KJVOs have more in common with the RCC than they want to admit.
    Is it Virgin worship. or Version worship?
    Both are Sin, with a capital "S"

    KJVO has stuff in common with catholics? Put it right up there with their manuscripts, Erasmus, the church of england, etc.

    I just have to ask. According to that pamphlet which particular Catholic bible is supposed to be the correct one?
    Inquiring minds want to know.

    That's what I'd like to know. I used to have three different Catholic bibles.

    Alas, due to a burglary in my storage unit prior to me buying my condo, several personal effects were stolen, including several boxes of books. I lost all my Bible college material, as well as several different editions of the Bible. Trying to replenish my old library has proven quite costly. :(

    I personally enjoy the "Confraternity" version, as it translates the Greek verb tenses far better than the AV1901 or KJV1769 that I usually rely on.

    Plus I get an indulgence and 10 years out of Purgatory for every book I read. Going through III John for the 1884th time!! :rolleyes:

    So, now you have 18,000 years out of Purgatory. How many years do we get to start with (according to the RCC)? Then where do you go? What does an indulgence get you? ......a week with central air? :confused:

    I'm not for sure which Bible. I didn't ask. If I see her again i'll ask.
    I wonder if KJVOism has invaded the RCC. That would be something.

    See, that's the catch. I DON'T KNOW how long I will get in Purgatory! I'm figuring if it is directly related to my sin in this life, I should only get 25-30 million centuries (give or take a millenia).

    Everyone goes there (even the Pope - ask a Catholic, no one gets home free) and can't get into heaven without a stop-off to be purged.

    Guess the cross wasn't quite enough . . . :rolleyes:

    The resemblance between the RC dogma of papal infallibility and the dogma of KJV-Onlyism is remarkable.

    (1) Roman Catholics accept as an unquestionable article of faith that the Bishop of Rome alone speaks for God. KJV-Onlyists accept as an unquestionable article of faith that a 17th C. Anglican Bible translation alone speaks for God.

    (2) Roman Catholics argue that God would not have left us in confusion as to the correct interpretation of the Scriptures, so He gave us an infallible interpreter, the pope. KJV-Onlysts argue that God would not have left us in confusion as to the correct wording of the Scriptures, so He gave us an infallible English Bible translation, the KJV.
    (3) Roman Catholics cite Mt. 16:18-19 as a Scriptural proof text to demonstrate that God's "final authority" has been preserved in Peter's successors, and will not accept that the passage can be understood otherwise (e.g., that "the rock" is Peter's confession of faith.) KJV-Onlyists cite Psa. 12:6-7 as a Scriptural proof text to demonstrate that God's "final authority" has been preserved in the KJV, and will not accept that the passage can be understood otherwise (e.g., that the psalm is about the preservation of God's people.)

    (4) Roman Catholics condemn confusion and disagreement among those who "rebel against God's infallible pope" and interpret the Bible for themselves. KJV-Onlyists condemn confusion and disagreement among those who "rebel against God's infallible KJV" and translate the Bible for themselves.

    Just a thought. [​IMG]

    If you don't count the Apocrypha, there is nothing wrong with the RC Bibles on the shelves of our churchlibrary, except for the American ones ofcourse....

    Dr. Bob - Forty-three rosaries plus seventeen Hail Marys will get you a week in a cooler part of Purgatory, where there are only clean natural gas flames instead of that nasty ole charcoal. Plus, the devil pokes you only with a two-pronged pitchfork instead of a trident. Comforting thought, eh?
