After studying the 1994 Catechism, one cannot help but notice several major differences between Catholic doctrine and the Bible.
First and foremost is that both consistently teach conflicting doctrines. The Catechism's claim that the Bible and Catholic tradition work together to bring about the salvation of souls is simply not true.

The Bible, on the other hand, is simple, straight-forward, consistent and easy to understand. Here is an example.

The Bible could not be any more explicit on the subject of eternal destiny, which is to be expected from God on such an important topic:
Here's another example. Jesus Himself preached:

Why is such a simple Bible concept made so confusing? Surely God wants everyone to understand how to get to heaven. Would a truly loving God make the rules for reaching heaven so complex that nobody could understand them?

God wants you in heaven. That' s why He keeps His Word simple.
God does not want you to be confused. If the Catechism and Catholic doctrine have ever left you feeling confused, perhaps you should begin putting your trust in God's Word:
