Can you give a list of all the "heavy burdens" (Matt 23:2-6) the rcc placed on men by adding into Scriptures?

The Catholic Church hadn't even been "born" at that time, before Pentecost. That scripture speaks of the Pharisees of Jesus' time and all the self-serving additions they made to the Law of Moses, which further oppressed 1st century Roman occupied Judea-Samaria.Source(s): www.askmeaboutgod.org

The Catholic Church cannot "add to the scriptures" because the scriptures clearly record that Jesus Christ told the leaders of the one Church He founded "The Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth", and Whatsoever you bind upon Earth is bound in Heaven", and "He who hears you hears Me". The Church He founded is the one source of truth He gave to us, whether it later decided to gather some of its writings into a book or not. Speaking of "adding to scripture", how's it going with the "Bible only" tradition? Thousands of manmade denominations, each claiming to teach from "the Bible alone", yet the teaching of each one contradicting the teaching of the others. Truth cannot contradict truth, so apparent "Bible alone" doesn't work, which we should expect since it is an unbiblical tradition of men.

Don't be ridiculous. The RCC CHOSE the original scriptures in the 4th century after the Romans made Christianity legal. In the 16th century, the edited and abridged version of the bible you are accustomed to became the sole authority on earth of the protestant reformers. They chose to abridge Christianity to suit their new religions.

was speaking literally
of the Scribes and Pharisees
nor of Christians
and certainly not specifically of the Roman Catholic Church.

I never thought about that verse before but I think I used to do that - I guess I should stop.

I don't need to find fault in other beliefs to prove mine is correct. I have faith all will come together under God.
