Why do Protestants trust the New Testament if they believe the Catholics were corrupt?

Actually no, the "church approved text" was the Alexandrian/Gnostic manuscripts. 20+ million Christians are dead for trying to get the real word of God into the hands of the common man. One of the corrupt manuscripts is called the "Textus Vaticanus".. guess where it was found.


For the "20+ million Christians are dead for trying to get the real word of God into the hands of the common man" isn't that a little melodramatic? I assume you're referring to the 30 Years War or similar Catholic/Protestant conflicts. Of course religion was just one of many issues in those wars, and most of the people fighting for religion probably had never heard of the Textus Receptus.

Melodramatic? Sure, afterall millions of dead people isn't a tragedy, only a statistic.
