LETTER: Catholics should realign religion with scripture

(metro creative)

To the Editor:

Catholics do not understand that you are not supposed to call any man on earth father. It is written in the Bible in Matthew 23:9, "And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your father, which is in Heaven."

Also, you are not supposed to use vain repetitions in your prayers. For Matthew 6:7 says, "But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking."

You Catholics also believe in purgatory. There is nothing written in the Bible about purgatory. You either go to Heaven or Hell. Do you Catholics not believe that Jesus Christ's grace is sufficient for you?

Catholics also worship Mary as a holy entity. Mary was Jesus Christ's mother, and her name is blessed, but she is not be be prayed to.

I only wrote this because I love people, and God doesn't want any to perish.
