My suggestions? You are ridiculous. Read Matthew 16!
Matthew 16:23 But he turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me. For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man." (ESV)
Im serious. Go and read Matthew 16! Please!
After Jesus called Peter the rock, He called him Satan! (Matthew 16:23) I neither add nor subtract. However, you seem to want to subtract verse 23! You can not use scripture to fit your desires and beliefs.
I think you are getting confused between the God's Word and man's word. The Catholic Church's words are fallible, and therefore the word of man and not God.
And why are you so bitter about 500 years ago. There is the church and the Church. The "church" is each individual building. The "Church" is all believers in Christ. When you speak about the Catholic Church being the "Church", you are incorrect. You are speaking about a synod. The fact that the Catholic Church lost its monopoly does not mean a thing to the Church. The believers in Christ were still the believers in Christ.
500 years ago, people took a stand. Some for the Word of God, and others for the word of man.
