Don't Confuse Me with the Facts, I'm Told What to Believe

“The task of interpreting the Word of God authentically has been entrusted solely to the Magisterium of the Church, that is, to the Pope and to the bishops in communion with him” (The Catechism of the Catholic Church). So, then, um, when the Bible teaches justification by faith alone, it does not mean what it says and when it says that we have one mediator between God and man the man Christ Jesus, it doesn't mean that either? And this is because God lacks the ability to be clear in his book apart from Rome explaining how God doesn't mean what context and grammar clearly indicate that he does mean?!?! Baffling and worthy of the word PROTESTant. Read chapters 8,9,&10 for Tuesday, May 17th. Great and vital stuff to work through.
