He takes us through the bar of church history and shows us that the claims of the RCC concerning Sola Scriptura & tradition, the canon, the papacy, the "rock" of Matthew 16, Marion dogmas, the sacramental system, the Eucharist, and faith and justification go completely against what the early church fathers believed.
