10 Bible Verses that Protestants Cannot Accept Without Becoming Catholic

leave a comment »

In the Catholic faith, the Bible comes alive. It is the only Christian faith that accepts the Bible wholly without removing books or verses. Protestants have a hard time proving some Bible verses that are authentically Catholic. Here are 10 of them:
1. Matthew 16:18-19 / Isaiah 22:22 (Authority/Papacy)
Simon Peter said in reply, You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God. Jesus said to him in reply, Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my heavenly Father. (Matthew 16:16-17)
I will place the key of the House of David on his shoulder; when he opens, no one shall shut, when he shuts, no one shall open. (Isaiah 22:22)
2. 1 Timothy 3:15 (Authority of the Church, not Bible Alone)
But if I should be delayed, you should know how to behave in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of truth. (1 Timothy 3:15)
3. 2 Thessalonians 2:15 (Tradition)
Therefore, brothers, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught, either by an oral statement or by a letter of ours. (2 Thessalonians 2:15)
4. 1 Peter 3:21 (Baptism also Saves us, not just Faith Alone)
This prefigured baptism, which saves you now. It is not a removal of dirt from the body but an appeal to God for a clear conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, (1 Peter 3:213:21)
5. John 20:23 (Confession to a Priest, not “Directly to God”)
Whose sins you forgive are forgiven them, and whose sins you retain are retained. (John 20:23)
6. John 6:53-58, 66-67 (The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist)
Jesus said to them, Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him on the last day. For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I have life because of the Father, so also the one who feeds on me will have life because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died, whoever eats this bread will live forever. (John 6:53-58)
As a result of this, many (of) his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. Jesus then said to the Twelve, Do you also want to leave? (John 6:66-67
7. 1 Corinthians 11:27 (The Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist)
Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord unworthily will have to answer for the body and blood of the Lord. (1 Corinthians 11:27)
8. James 5:14-15 (Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick)
Is anyone among you sick? He should summon the presbyters of the church, and they should pray over him and anoint (him) with oil in the name of the Lord, and the prayer of faith will save the sick person, and the Lord will raise him up. If he has committed any sins, he will be forgiven. (James 5:14-15)
9. Colossians 1:24 (Suffering for the Body of Christ which is the Church)
Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ on behalf of his body, which is the church, (Col 1:24)
10. James 221726 (Necessity of Good Works ad not Faith Alone)
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister has nothing to wear and has no food for the day, and one of you says to them, Go in peace, keep warm, and eat well, but you do not give them the necessities of the body, what good is it? So also faith of itself, if it does not have works, is dead. Indeed someone might say, You have faith and I have works. Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works. You believe that God is one. You do well. Even the demons believe that and tremble. Do you want proof, you ignoramus, that faith without works is useless? Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered his son Isaac upon the altar? You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by the works. (James 2:14-22)
