this post of yours proves the point that we need a Church to interpret Scripture. If you could interpret Scripture infallibly you would realize that this psg means to think of no human being as being more capable of discerning what is God's will for you than God Himself. In other words, do not let a human replace God. You protestants violate this all the time when you follow human pastors over the Word. You would disobey the Word of God if a Ctholic righty interpreted said Word, just to defy a Catholic, even if you suspected him/her of being right. .. appears you hate Cathoicism more than you love God
Proof of how egregiously WRONG some of your pastors are: some of them endorse the un-Christian, bullying, protester-abusing, LIAR (etc) Donlad T for president!!! Unbelievable
You are correct about the Protestants kissing up to men by calling them "Reverend." Now, I am not Protestant, neither am I Catholic or Orthodox. Jehovah's Witnesses do not call anyone "Father" or "Reverend." As Jesus said, we have one Father, the One in heaven, and one Lord...Jesus Christ. JWs don't vote, either, as we honor Jesus' teaching that Christians are "no part of the world." HE is the one we have already voted for, when we were baptized.
I see you don't explain why your Church turns a blind eye to the principles that were quoted. You just said that you feel grateful that the Church is there to explain them, but you didn't offer any enlightenment to us.
