The Bible Is Understandable

The Catholic Church claims the Bible is not really understandable and that is why we need the Catholic Church and its Pope and clergy to interpret it for us correctly. But notice the following passages which show the Bible is understandable as written …

Ephesians 3:3-4 – How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery … as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge …

Matthew 13:23 – the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it

II Corinthians 1:13 – For we write nothing else to you than what you read and understand … (NASV)

Why then do some people not understand God’s word? That is explained by verses like the following …

Matthew 13:15 – For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted …

It is strange we can’t understand the Bible even though we agree the author is the Almighty God, but we can understand the Pope who is only a man. The Catholics must not think much of God’s ability to communicate.
