actually when properly translated, the prophets and NT say the same thing... but none of the translations are good so what I am saying is not apparent... and most people do go by 'translations' -- included catholicism. we see the result, which is the many opinions. It's impossible to battle all the opinions...IF that type of debate was how things work with Him. It's not.Did he ever say that he was Catholic? He didn't say it in this thread and anyway he contradicts Catholicism when he says, "The New Testament contradicts the teachings of the Tanakh/Torah."
