Paul's first letters to the Galatians were to a group he'd preached to before, who were being subverted by a heretic. When he says:
"As we have already said, so now I say again: If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other than what you accepted, let him be eternally condemned!" Galatians 1:9, NIV - www.biblegateway.com
... he's talking to specific people about a specific doctrine they DID already accept. He's not writing a blank check for you folks to take out of context as a universal excuse for willful ignorance.

God, this shit isn't even funny anymore.
And once again, dumbfuck; what on earth does the passage in Galatians have to do with Roman Catholicism? Also, the Catholic Church gave you your Bible, bitch.
The whole 'saved by works' doctrine is partially true; but we also believe in grace by faith. We just believe that grace can be lost if the Christian doesn't live up to the Gospel teachings (such as charitability, kindness, tolerence and following the 10 Commandments). I mean, God forbid anyone actually live up to their faith, rather than be Baptised/Saved and then just think they can get away with anything because they're "OMG saved!1!1!eleventyone".

a false gospel of works that leads to eternal hell
Revelation 20:12 disagrees.

Irony at best.

I never knew Galatians 1 said that. I must not have read it very carefully.

Is there a refrence to this, or are you just pulling shite out of your ass?

Catholics murdered anyone found owning a Bible.
And christians used to burn "witches".

My Catholic father and his four bibles (which he totally took as trophies from the corpses of "Real Christan(TM)" owners.) disagree with you.

The people who wrote the Bible were Catholics, the people who revised and recompiled the Bible were Catholics, the people who stayed with the traditional Bible and didn't "bastardize" it into protestantism were Catholics.
Wasn't there some dude in the Bible that said "Tha which you do to the least of my people, you do unto me"? Doesn't that imply that some works are needed too, in addition to lip-service?
But of course; you don't believe in that hippie liberal softie, you are a Paulite/Calvinite through and through, right?

Catholics were the original Christians. You fail basic history.
