Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ

Of course it is!

This begs the question "But the Church go along just fine for 1950 years without having to believe this! Why do we have to believe it now?"

Answer: becasue we now know that the Assumption of Mary is revealed by God.

Put another way: disobedience is the sin. Once the Church has made a solemn judgement that something like the Assumption of Mary is revealed, the sin is in rejecting the authoritative judgement of the Church. Prior to 1950--there was no authoritative judgement. Catholics were free to form their own opinions about the Assumption. After 1950, that was no longer the case.

Again, sir, not rocket science.

Where in Holy Scripture would I find confirmation that the belief of the assumption of Mary is required to be saved.
 
I have not.
But Paul DOES warn about taking the Eucharist unworthily, doesn't he? Why should anyone be concerned about receiving what you call mere bread and wine? I'm sure they aren't at your church.
Because it's not about what you eat or drink; it's about your heart. When you remember the Lord's shed blood and broken body on the cross, if your participation is in known, unrepented of sin, then you are defaming what the Lord did on the cross. THAT is what matters, not the emblems of which you partake.
 
And you want us to do that why?
Consistency. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

You Protestants seem only to have a problem with unbiblical views---when they are CATHOLIC. When other Protestants share them, all of a sudden unbiblical views become-----points of doctrine that aren't essential and not worth getting into a snit.
 
1992 Justification has been merited for us by the Passion of Christ who offered himself on the cross as a living victim, holy and pleasing to God, and whose blood has become the instrument of atonement for the sins of all men. Justification is conferred in Baptism, the sacrament of faith. It conforms us to the righteousness of God, who makes us inwardly just by the power of his mercy. Its purpose is the glory of God and of Christ, and the gift of eternal life:

2010 Since the initiative belongs to God in the order of grace, no one can merit the initial grace of forgiveness and justification, at the beginning of conversion. Moved by the Holy Spirit and by charity, we can then merit for ourselves and for others the graces needed for our sanctification, for the increase of grace and charity, and for the attainment of eternal life. Even temporal goods like health and friendship can be merited in accordance with God's wisdom. These graces and goods are the object of Christian prayer. Prayer attends to the grace we need for meritorious actions.

2027 No one can merit the initial grace which is at the origin of conversion. Moved by the Holy Spirit, we can merit for ourselves and for others all the graces needed to attain eternal life, as well as necessary temporal goods
Praise be to God. HE is our Healer! . . . for I am the Lord that healeth thee. Ex. 15:26

Really? Who were the witnesses to this event? When and where did it happen? If the rcc had evidence that this event happened, they would have made it public and put an end to the protestant revolution once and for all. It didn't, so it can't. All of your words are worthless.
