    I don't know if this challenge was ever posted here, but there is a challenge out there that basically states if you can show that the official teaching of the church (the Catechism) is wrong using scripture, there is a pretty good amount of money up for grabs. I can get anyone interested official details, but I remember that basically you need to quote the catechism and then quote the Bible and then explain how it contradicts it.

    I know that you can't just throw anything out there, but must back it up and then be prepared to defend it (i.e. if you misunderstand what the catechism states they would correct you and that would not count as proving it wrong)

    Would anyone be interested in more details on this?

    Definition of catechism: a summary of religious doctrine often in the form of questions and answers.

    Who's catechism do you mean? The Reform catechism? The Lutheran catechism? The Roman Catholic catechism? Each denomination believes that its catechism agrees with scripture. So this appears to be an unwinable bet.

    Even the Catechism of the Unchurched follows something .

    My own uses the guidelines of the Apostle's Creed I suppose, and very
    little of those sects who exault their chosen denomination as special.
    (I just read the bible and apply it in common sense) But then don't we all?

    The Apostles didn't seem to have a church hangup. They didn't worship
    Peter or accept worship themselves.....they didn't join the Baptist Conference
    nor did they patronize Saints or pilgrimage to Rome. They didn't have a
    home church or even mention the need for one. They didn't read the bible
    as we know it and they didn't contribute to the Cancer Society, support
    Right to Life or have cake walks for the benefit of the ''church''.

    What was their Catechism......?

    The Catholic Catechism of course.

    I really could care less if you aren't interested, I'm just asking if anyone is interested.
