I think that if that were true then there would be no Christians anywhere. Ya, the catholics locked up scripture for a time, but I also think that God was still able to save people. Then after a time the Bible was written in a language people could understand, the ironic thing being that people now say that’s the only Bible to read when they can’t fully understand its archaic language...Why should we think that? For centuries the word of God was not available to the common man. Why would we think God cares more about making sure his word is knowable today then he did 500 years ago. The ability for the common man to have access to and read the Bible has only existed in the last 1/3 of the history of the Christian Church. For the first 1500 years of the Church the common person could not read the bible for themselves.
So if you are trying to convince us that it's not too hard for God to make sure we have a bible we can understand in our own language, how come he didn't seem to care about that for the first 1500 years of the Church?
When God says He wants no one to perish but all to be saved..then He has to provide the way for people to know His word and what He says. That I can’t speak to how that happened, doesn’t mean that it didn’t. Which doesn’t mean that nowadays, we don’t have scripture, or that we don’t have Bible’s that we can learn from, we surely do.
