I was watching something celebrating the Reformation, when Martin Luther — the most devil obsessed man who has ever lived — nailed 95 feces to the church door. The show was entirely the black legend
, making the Catholic Church out to be the evilest thing that has ever existed and celebrating how the Protestants invented all sorts of nonsense that was discarded as superstition by the Church like burning witches and a flat 4000 year old Earth. A thousand years before Martin Luther the Catholic Church outlawed burning witches because witches don't exist so a person cannot be convicted of a crime that is impossible to commit.
The talking heads REEEEE'd at the Jesuits. "They don't take the Bible as the supreme authority! REEEEEE!!!!!" No, the Bible isn't the supreme authority. Satan knows the Bible inside and out, front and back, better than you ever will. Jesus Christ is our supreme authority. We practice a religion called Christianity, after all, not Bibleanity. Jesus Christ is infallible, men translating and interpreting the Bible on their own are fallible. Of course we don't want 57,000 interpretations of the Bible, because 56,999 will be wrong and that's a whole lot of straw to sift through to find the one needle.
They also lied about indulgences. Indulgences were not sold, they were given as gifts for people who were particularly charitable. Charity is a virtue (except in Protestantism where hoarding money is a virtue because having lots of money is proof that God loves you. It's not like Jesus himself said the exact opposite, that it's easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter God's kingdom, or that in this life you will have to suffer. Nope. Prosperity gospel! Booyah! Give money to the church.)
Let us not forget what happened in the middle and end of that program, the narrator who REEEEE'd at indulgences said "If you make a tax-deductible contribution to this ministry we will give you this free gift book/DVD." Do these people not see the massive hypocrisy of that? "We're not "selling" this book, then we'd have to pay taxes on it. We're giving it away "free" in exchange for a monetary contribution that exceeds the fair market value of the book. It's totally different."
They said that both futurism and preterism are heresies invented by the Jesuits to confuse Protestants to the truth that the Pope is the Antichrist despite Protestants also believing the Pope to not be in the Bible, because they believe made up bullshit that contradicts the other made up bullshit they believe.
They also REEEEEE'd at sacraments and transubstantiation.
For people who claim to hold the Bible as the highest authority they sure like to twist the literal word of the Risen Lord into metaphor whenever it is inconvenient for them.
