Bible


Many fail to realize that it was the Catholic Church that originally decided to compile all of the sacred scriptures, that the Catholic Church wrote ALL of the New Testament scriptures under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, that the Catholic Church certified ALL of the sacred scriptures as authentic, officially declared the scriptures to be the inerrant, inspired Word of God, translated the scriptures from the original languages into the common language of the people, and did all of this by the end of the 4th century.

Furthermore … since the New Testament was written by Catholics and for Catholics, it necessarily reflects only authentic Catholic beliefs and practices.

This is something non-Catholics often overlook, to their detriment, and at the expense of the truth.

Everyone interested in the Bible … Catholic or not … should spend some time reading these authentic Catholic Church documents on the nature of sacred scripture:

ON THE STUDY OF HOLY SCRIPTURE … PROVIDENTISSIMUS DEUS

DOGMATIC CONSTITUTION ON DIVINE REVELATION … DEI VERBUM
