    FACT: Catholics pray repetitive words with Rosary Beads that were first invented in AD, by "Peter the Hermit" and made popular by St. Dominic in AD. Catholics believe that Mary appeared to St. Dominic in AD, at the church of Prouille and revealed the Rosary Beads to him. From this time, Catholics prayed 15 sets of 10 consecutive "hail Marys" in a row ( times), in the Rosary.   The Lord's Supper (Eucharist/Communion) - Roman Catholics believe the elements of bread and wine become Christ's body and blood physically present and consumed by believers ("transubstantiation"). Most Protestants believe this observance is a meal in .

    > Why do Catholic Bibles not include the Book of Revelation? I heard or read somewhere that the Book of Revelation isn’t included in Catholic Bibles, but that they have 73 books instead of the Protest which Protestants know as the ‘Apocryp.   As a result, people are sometimes saved in Catholic churches. The Bible has an impact whenever it is proclaimed (Isaiah ). Catholic Christians remain in the Catholic Church out of ignorance of what the Catholic Church truly stands for, out of family tradition and peer pressure, or out of a desire to reach other Catholics for Christ.

    A: There are seven books in the Catholic Bible — Baruch, Judith, 1 and 2 Maccabees, Sirach, Tobit and Wisdom — that are not included in the Protestant version of the Old Testament. These books.   Catholics believe that when they read the Bible, their understanding is inspired by the Holy Spirit. The catechism of the Catholic Church states that "God speaks to man in a human way" through sacred scripture. In order for the Catholic reader .

At heart, the Bible has one author, so when Catholics interpret the Bible they understand that the Bible will never contradict itself. The Holy Spirit guides the Church in a special way. He guided the Church in its process of discerning which books belonged in the Bible, and he continues to guide the Church in its interpretation of the Bible.

Catholic Bibles are known to have more books than Protestant Bibles, and there is a very good reason for this. I'll explain below. First, it's important to note that the New Testament of the Bible is exactly the same between Catholics and Protestants.

There is no difference at all. They both consist of exactly twenty-seven. Evangelicals use the Bible as a source book for doctrine and right moral teaching, and that’s good. so Catholics believe their bishops have inherited the authority of the apostles to teach.

Common Misunderstanding: That since the Catholic Old Testament contains seven more books than Protestant Bibles, the Catholic Church must have added later to justify doctrines that Jesus did not teach.

Response: The Catholic Bible contains all the books that have traditionally been accepted by Christians since the Canon of Scripture was recognized by the Synod of Rome in By Monsignor J. Brian Bransfield. People ask if everything Catholics believe is found in the Bible. The answer.

Both “yes” and “no.” The Church “does not derive her certainty about all revealed truths from the Holy Scriptures alone” (Catechism of the Catholic Church [CCC] no. 82 Dei Verbum 9).Jesus is the ultimate Source of everything Catholics believe, for he reveals God’s plan. All Christians - Catholic, Orthodox and Protestant - agree that the Books in the Bible are the inspired, written Word of God but disagree on which Books belong in the Bible.

Specifically we do not. What is the Catholic position on the Book of Revelation. I know that the Book is highly symbolic, but is the book about the “end times”. Will there be a literal Antichrist that will rule for seven years at the end (The Tribulation) (Rev 13) I want to the know the Catholic View on the End times in light of Scriptures and Tradition.

What does the Catholic Church teach about the Antichrist. With respect to the rapture, Catholics certainly believe that the event of our gathering together to be with Christ will take place, though they do not generally use the word “rapture” to refer to this event (somewhat ironically, since the term “rapture” is derived from the text of the Latin Vulgate of 1 Thess.

—”we will be. What do Catholics believe about the Bible. Catholics believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God. From the beginning of Christianity, the Catholic Church defined the canon of Scripture – the books you find in every Christian Bible – and defined what it meant to be a follower of Jesus Christ.

A Catholic Bible is a Christian Bible that includes the whole book canon recognized by the Catholic Church, including the deuterocanonical books.

The term "deuterocanonical" is used by some scholars to denote the books (and parts of books) of the Old Testament which are in the Greek Septuagint collection but not in the Hebrew Masoretic Text collection.

Then the living would be snatched up or carried off immediately afterward in order to meet Christ in the clouds (1 Thess. In the Vulgate, the early Latin Bible, the word used for God’s plucking us up into the sky was rapiemur, from which we derive the word “rapture.”. The roman catholic church do not encourage its followers to read the bible or if / when they do (there are exception) they do not encourage to study it in context with consideration of the culture etc because they know that it would have a serious impact in the numbers.

The Old Testament people of God would not have called it “Purgatory,” but they did clearly believe that the sins of the dead could be atoned for by the living as I will now prove. This is a constitutive element of what Catholics call “Purgatory.” Purgatory Is For Real – Order Now.

So a church-going Catholic does know and use Scripture — its just that he uses it primarily for meditation and worship (Psalms ) — not primarily for personal information and instruction. You can think of it this way: Evangelicals use the Bible as a rule book.

Catholics use it as a prayer book. Built on the apostolic tradition. Even some Catholics use passages from John's book to create end-times scenarios that are difficult to reconcile with Church teaching.

and even a few Catholics believe that Revelation depicts. What Do Catholics Believe. answers Catholic questions on Catholic beliefs. Get accurate and reliable answers to important and challenging Catholic questions. Catholics are, first and foremost, Christians who believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

Catholicism shares some beliefs with other Christian practices, but essential Catholic beliefs include the following: The Bible is the inspired, error-free, and revealed word of God.

Baptism, the rite of becoming a Christian, is necessary for salvation — whether [ ]. Do Catholics really read the Bible. If so, how do they read it and is there anything unique about their approach. What role does the Bible play in Catholic life, teaching, and culture?As a leading Scripture scholar who also teaches students and preaches to everyday people, Fr.

Daniel Harrington, S.J., has made it his life's mission to answer these and many related questions about the Bible and. Christianity regards the Bible, a collection of canonical books in two parts (the Old Testament and the New Testament), as is believed by Christians to have been written by human authors under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and therefore for many it is held to be the inerrant Word of God.

Protestants believe the Bible contains all revealed truth necessary for salvation. The Catholic Church and Eastern Christian churches also hold that certain deuterocanonical books and passages are part of the Old Testament canon.

The second part is the New Testament, containing 27 books; the four Canonical gospels, Acts of the Apostles, 21 Epistles or letters and the Book of. Some protestants believe that the Catholic Church added 7 books to the Bible at the Council of Trent in response to Luther’s Reformation, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

In about AD, St. Athanasius came up with a list of 73 books for the Bible that he believed to be divinely inspired.

First, Roman Catholics essentially hold to the Bible plus tradition as their basic authority. That is, they don’t just believe in the Bible as Protestants or evangelicals do, at least in principle (sola Scriptura = Scripture alone).

Catholics take the Bible in the literal sense, and in the spiritual sense. The latter depends on the former; the former is given deeper meaning and significance by .
