Following is an excerpt from a Roman Catholic publication titled Familiar Explanation of Christian Doctrine, by Michael Müller:
"Q. Are the doctrines of the Catholic Church then entirely independent of Scripture?
A. They are; because she taught her doctrines, and they were believed by the early Christians before the New Testament was written—centuries, indeed, before the Bible was collected into its present form; and she would have done so, in precisely the same manner, had they never been written."

Since the Roman Catholic Church didn't exist for almost 400 years after the Christian church was founded, and since none of Rome's doctrines were taught in the N.T. church or centuries afterwards, that statement is about as false as it can be.
