Below is a decidedly devious explanation from a Catholic priest for why Catholics generally don’t read the Bible.
But let’s stop the nonsense. The MAJOR reason the Roman Catholic church has not promoted Bible reading down through the centuries is because there are many, many chapters and verses in the Bible that specifically contradict Catholic doctrine. It’s all about control. The Catholic hierarchy has always desired that it’s membership be entirely dependent upon them and their man-made traditions, which include their system of merited salvation.
So what are we to believe; God’s Word or the dictates of the Catholic pope and bishops? Accept Christ as your Savior and turn away from religious institutions which teach the false gospel that everyone who is “good” will merit salvation.
“Why do you call me good?” Jesus answered. “No one is good—except God alone.” – Mark 10:18
“Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, and since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool. For by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.” – Hebrews 10:11-14
