Christianity is true over Catholicism. Christians get their authority from the Bible. Catholics get their authority from the church. The Catholic Church and the Bible are completely contradictory. it comes down to whether you take the catholic church, which has no right to authority at all and simply claims to be the ultimate authority, or the Bible, which has been proven to be true time and time again based on the prophesies it made which all came to pass, and has been the rightful authority to all Christians.

This argument is a huge steamin load. Catholicism is a branch of Christianity. Also, my penis is 10 feet long.

Yet again, you Fail to know the truth!
1 Corinthians 3
3 for you are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and dissension among you, are you not worldly? Are you not walking in the way of man? 4 For when one of you says, "I follow Paul," and another, "I follow Apollos," are you not mere men? 5 What then is Apollos? And what is Paul? They are servants through whom you believed, as the Lord has assigned to each his role."

I ask you, who saved you? Was it the Church? Was it Methodist, Baptist, Lutheran, Catholics, Mormon ... which denomination ACTUALLY saved YOU?

It is Christ who saves, not a single person will or CAN be saved by denomination ... remember this!

Titus 3:9 But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless.

2 Timothy 2:14 Keep reminding God's people of these things. Warn them before God against quarreling about words; it is of no value, and only ruins those who listen.

Christianity wasn't originally based on the Bible, and Protestants cherrypick the Bible just as much as Catholics do.

@MagicAintReal It isn't as simple as that. Just because a group claims to be Christian, that does not mean they actually are. Mormons also claim to be Christians, but they are not since they do not teach the true gospel. Similarly, Roman Catholicism does not teach the true gospel.

Catholicism is a sect of Christianity, so this debate might be pretty dumb, and jackgilbert, why are you starting debates when you haven't finished ours?
