If you think you are Catholic, then you MUST ascribe to the teaching of the Catholic Church in the first column. As we know, Church teaching in faith and morals can not be wrong, nor can it contradict itself. That means that to ascribe to the teaching in the second column, you believe the first column to be false.

By thinking that the second column is Catholic, and the first column is false, you are one that believes that the Catholic Church was created sometime in the 1950’s and 1960’s. Because it would be impossible for the Catholic Church to be wrong for it’s first 1900+ years of existence.

Through reason and faith, we can clearly surmise that the teaching described in column one, is truly Catholic. The teaching in the second column is a new teaching from a new church. And the question remains….Do you still think you are Catholic?
