I wish at some future stage to post an article titled “why I am not a Catholic”.

This will look at the two principal issues which divide Catholics from protests, which are “Canon” and “Authority”.

All other differences depend on these two things.

Briefly, I will say that, though the Protestant Canon corresponds to that determined by unbeleiving Jews until after the time of Jesus, at the time of Jesus there was a narrow Canon (corresponding to that eventually decided on by unbelieving Jews), and a Broader Canon (corresponding to that accepted by Rome).

I will also argue that there is no evidewnce that Simon Peter was ever in Rome and that early claims for primacy of the Bishop of Rome over other bishops was based on Rome being the capital city of the empire.

At this point in history, Biederwolfs in-depth study on the Bibles prophetic teachings concerning the last days and Christs Second Coming is especially relevant.
