The Roman Catholic Church claim to have power over the Bible and authority to change it when they see fit.
"The Pope has the power to change times, to abrogate laws, and to dispense with all
things, even the precepts of Christ. The Pope has the authority and often exercised it, to dispense with the command of
Christ." (Decretal, de Tranlatic Episcop. (The pope can modify divine law) Ferraris' Ecclesiastical
"The authority of the Church could therefore not be bound to the authority
of the Scriptures, because the church had changed the Sabbath into Sunday, not by command of Christ, but by it's
own authority." (Canon and Tradition. page 263)
"The doctrines of the Catholic Church are entirely independent of Holy Scripture."
(Familiar Explanation of Catholic Doctrine. Rev. M Muller, page 151)
Where in God's Word does He give any kind of authority to a person (other than Christ), or a church body to
change His laws or His Word? Nowhere! Even if it was true that Jesus said He would build His church upon Peter,
(which it isn't), that still does not give a mere mortal, sinful man the authority to change the precepts of our ALMIGHTY,
MOST HOLY, CREATOR GOD!! Not a chance! What blasphemy to even think it! So does God say we must live
by the words of the Pope, or by the words of God Himself?
Matthew 4:4 ...'But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but
by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.'
1 Peter 1:25 ...'But the word of the Lord endureth for ever. And this is the word which by the gospel
is preached unto you.'
Hebrews 4:12 .....'For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword,
piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the
thoughts and intents of the heart.'
This is very clear. We are to live by the Word of God ALONE. Which means no man or church has been given the authority
to change God's Word. Is the word of the pope able to discern the thoughts and intents of the heart? No, only God is able to do this.
Therefore the pope CANNOT have any authority over God's Word in the Bible.
