The Catholic church is the organization that brought you the Bible.
Why not trust theirs?
Douay-Rheims Bible -- the original English version pre-dates the King James, and doesn't have all of the errors that the King James Version has in it.
Your community is one of the fragments of the original catholic church, nothing more

When did we go from just this "community of believers" to the actual Catholic church
You are defining continuity through the hierarchical structures, and I don't.
That was the origin of the pyschological attitude of "We are the church, and our leader must be the head of the church", which grew up in the mediaeval western world and has now carried over into the modern Catholic community".

Good vid, I have watched Pastor Anderson some on youtube. He is a good teacher.
The Vatican has infiltrated, or neutered and spayed, virtually every denomination and organization in Christendom. Various means have been used, but Opus Dei has played a major role in this. Virtually 100% of the world's seminaries are in the pocket of the Roman Whore in that they use her Bible via the Alexandrian Gnostic Greek texts. I am fully persuaded that Opus Dei and the Jesuits have already planted many of their agents in Baptist and Fundamental churches and schools. I am convinced that many Fundamental Baptist churches are NOW pastored by Jesuits and Opus Dei agents. Many deacons and Sunday School teachers are now inside the Baptist movement teaching doctrines of Rome.
OPUS DEI-- War on Protestantism

Opus Dei is full of very nice prayerful people.

Pastor Anderson preaches the Bible.
Like John MacArthur, Billy Graham, John Piper, Hank Hanegraaff, Mark Driscoll, the Catholic church, and so many other ministers of Satan today, Steven Anderson believes you can blow your brains out and go to heaven. This teaching well fits Satan's agenda. He is a murderer (John 8:44), and he wants people lost and sent to hell (e.g. Luke 8:12). What better way to get them dead and in hell than to lie to them about suicide?
Steven Anderson Is Unfaithful To The Word
"...in sharp contrast to the Bible, Steve Anderson teaches that the saints (Church) will be raptured 75 DAYS after the Abomination of Desolation. In part 15 of 22, he says the saints will be Raptured AFTER the Tribulation, but BEFORE God's wrath is poured out. This is commonly referred to as a “Mid-Tribulation” or “Pre-wrath” position of the Rapture. Anderson teaches that the saints will be removed BEFORE the wrath of God is poured out upon the world."
Steve Anderson Errantly Teaches A Mid-Tribulation, Pre-Wrath, Rapture
Steven Anderson, pastor of [Un]Faithful Word Baptist Church in Tempe, Arizona, teaches a horribly damning and twisted view of eternal security. Besides his utterly hypocritical stance, Anderson encourages utter debauchery and outright "superfluity of naughtiness" (James 1:21 KJV) as he declares no restraint on sin for anyone who has ever been supposedly saved.
Steven Anderson's Twisted Eternal Security
So unless a person hears God’s voice and senses His Spirit when receiving the words from God, there is no rhema, there is no faith, there is no life, and there will be no good fruit produced. In fact when people quote scriptures with out being led by the Holy Spirit they produce death not life. Remember even Satan can quote scriptures, Mat. 4:6. People in the New Age movement quote scriptures, Muslims accept some scriptures, and many cults will use some scriptures from the Bible, but there is no true faith produced when they quote the Bible.
The Pharisees and Sadducees used the scriptures to bring death, as do some religious leaders today, but when Jesus quoted scriptures it brought life. Jesus says “It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” (John 6:63) Too many pastors and Bible teachers are bringing death to people instead of life by speaking un-anointed words, that is words that the Holy Spirit has not led them to speak.
Too many people are teaching the written word without teaching the Spirit, which is how to hear God’s voice in you, the Holy Spirit. "A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. "But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. (Mat 12:35-36) Idle words are dead words that do not carry the anointing of the Holy Spirit, which means that they do not carry God’s voice and His spirit to penetrate the heart of the hearer bringing life and faith.
Hearing God's Voice
Run, don't walk away from Steve Anderson and stay very far away. Pray that he can see his own heresy, and seek repentance. As James 1:8 says A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Just because he uses the KJV doesn't mean he a man of God. As 1 Jn 4:1-6 says we're to test the spirits to rightly discern if they are truly of Christ.
Anderson is nothing more than a modern day gnostic who's like a little boy that play's church every Sunday and Wednesday. Isn't this the same guy who picked a fight with the patrolmen at the border and then begged the brethren for money for his legal defense and medical expenses? He could at least have had enough integrity to accept responsibility for these problems that he alone caused for standing on his "civil rights" What a phony this guy is and has been from the beginning.

I`m looking forward to the end of the world. It couldn't come fast enough.
What we now know as the Orlando House of Prayer (OHOP) came about out of a personal encounter that I had with the Lord. On May 8, 2005, I was encountered by an Angel. My spirit-man came out of my body and I could feel someone cradling me. As I was taken to Heaven, I was allowed to hear a conversation that Jesus and the Father were having; it was a conversation that shook me and has brought about the birthing of OHOP and what it is today. The conversation with the Godhead dealt with the following key values:
1. Intimacy –“It’s time to get your Bride”
2. Character – “The condition of your heart is now”
3. Urgency – “Son, you are not ready”
4. Holy Spirit Power – “For the next great move of My Spirit”
5. Intercession –“Lord show me how to get ready”
Sid: Now I have to ask you what were the most terrifying words you heard in heaven?
Carlos: Well in that encounter at one point in the conversation between the Father and the Son, the Father looked at Jesus and this was near the end of that conversation; near the end of the encounter. When the Father said to Jesus “It’s time Son go get your bride!” And Sid the only way that I could explain how I felt at that time was the terror, the terror. It was like the terror I didn’t understand what the terror or the fear of the Lord was. But at that moment I felt the terror and fear of the Lord. And what came out of my lips; what came out of my mouth were these words that said and I screamed it at the top of my lungs, “No… we are not ready!”
Carlos: You know I was shocked by what I said; I was really disturbed by what I said; as a matter of fact when I came out of my encounter. I said “My God, my God what was that?” And I remember I was so disturbed by those words that I was shaking and crying out loud I realized that it was 4:00 AM in the morning and I threw myself on the floor and four 2 hours Sid all I could tell you was that those words “No, we’re not ready! No, we’re not ready!” They kept coming back to me and I didn’t understand why I said that.
I said “Lord, am I not ready? Is my life not ready? Am I not ready to meet you? Is my family not ready, is my ministry not ready? Why would I say that, and for 2 hours I cried out, show me, speak to me? So finally at the end of those two hours of standing, sitting before, laying before the Lord I heard the gentle voice of the Holy Spirit that said “Son, if I took you home right now you are ready to meet Me for eternity, but in the condition your heart is in right now you are not ready for the next great move of the Holy Spirit that I’m about to visit the earth with.” And that’s what put me in a seeking mode where I said “Lord, I don’t know how to get ready, teach me; show me how to get ready.” And that’s what brought me to the place where we are today.
Sid: Tell me just a few things that the Holy Spirit showed you to do personally to get ready.
Carlos: The first thing He showed me was through a series of events and through me seeking the Lord about that. He said “Carlos number 1 you must return to your first love.” And he reminded me of the Church of Ephesus in the Book of Revelation; how the Church of Ephesus had great works.
Carlos:And the Spirit of God began to reveal to me, "Son, because you left your first love, therefore, there's a lack of humility."
God HATES Religion.
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. (Matthew 6:8 NIV)
