I would agree that Protestantism could not be possibly be correct.

But, if in fact the Catholic Church did get it right, then why wouldn't you be Catholic?
If I believed the Catholic Church got it right, juj, I would most certainly be a Catholic.

Either it's all wrong or the Catholics have the Truth.
What kind of logic is that? The fact that the Protestants have it wrong does not mean that the Catholics have it right.

To me, it's a binary decision. But, I am a simple man.
Evidently that's the case. Too bad life's not binary.

What about those of us who are neither Catholic or Protestant?

Q: Are you Christian? Do you use a Bible as your sole source of Truth?

A: If you answered yes to those two questions, you're screwed. (Assuming of course you believe the Catholics got it wrong.)

Doesn't everyone believe that their denomination is the only true denomination? I mean, if you didn't believe that you were following the truth - wouldn't belong to a different denomination?

Yes I'm a Christian. Yes, I think the Bible is truth. And no, I don't believe I'm "screwed", as you say. And yes I think the Catholics got it wrong. I don't believe Jesus started a church that you can see with your eyes (RCC, for example), but rather a church (group of believing people) in the hearts of men and women...not just in Rome, but in several places all at the same time. I don't believe Peter was the first "Pope" as Catholics claim. (or a Pope at all, for that matter) I think the RCC we have today is totally a man-made institution.
