I suppose you've not heard of the phrase 'the living bible'? It was annoyingly shoved in my face, while I was growing up. I attended lutheran, methodist, presbyterian, church of christ, and baptist churches where I experienced the aforesaid language used. I'd agree that catholics absolutely do not espouse what I said. At least, at the few of their churches I've been to. I have a few catholic friends who have suggested the possiblity of such, but, I somehow doubt that their leaders would encourage that type of thought.
Too, I haven't been to a church in over 10 years, and I am no longer interested in christianity, so I can't really claim to know what's going on these days. I was, however, raised in a christian environment till I was about 19. And I actually believed it, too.
It's my experience that each church is a microreligion in and of itself, with its own rituals and celebrations. In my later teenage years several friends and I attended a few dozen local churches of vairous denominations, to better understand christianity. The fundamentals (Jesus, sins, the priest having the divine power, martyrdom) remains the same, but how they control you is up to their interpretation. And I intend no offense in saying this. I view each religion as a guideline-- as a path to walk in life with complete with guard rails and construction signs. Most churches weren't arrogant enough to say that their path was the only right one. They would just quote the familiar 'Jesus is the only way to heaven,' until you were black and blue with it. If you asked them to talk about the legitimacy of the bible, which, when I was growing up, was aflame with revelations that the books weren't written for some 70-200 years after their apparent writer's death, they would, overwhelmingly, state that the holy spirit moved the writers of the new testament to write the books. That the bible, as it is today, is perfect, and as it was intended. That despite many cultural, environmental, governmental, etc. changes, that the rules still applied-- if in a different manner of their choice. Those that accepted that it may be flawed, and even taught its other translations, still found ways to encompass the lessons as they felt was right. And this was the case in most churches that I visited.
And, to bring back my original point-- after studying these different christian denominations for years, I found it all to be highly convenient.
