to be honest, I was kind of hoping for a more "official" list of when they've been given. Instead I kind of got a list of general catholic teachings.
No worries...I honestly didn't really expect a real list.
You've got to be kidding. "General Catholic teachings?"
Have you even read the book? (ie. Fundamentals of Catholic Dogma by Ludwig Ott]
Do you have cash? You're not dirt-poor are you? Try to spare some and buy the book. If you want to know the real Catholic teachings, instead of its mis-characterization, and it's foundations in the bible and Tradition of the fathers (you know, the Early Church Fathers, men who made the Christian Church what it is, men who are smarter, holier and more pleasing to God than pastor Bob or even ex-Father Martin Luther OSA [Ordo Sancti Augustini] or one John Calvin), you'd buy the book.
If Protestant, or even Orthodox have the equivalence of Ott, I will work minimum wage to buy it. Why? Because it would be a hell lot practical for me to know what my opponenet believe (instead of mischaracterization of what they believe) and the reasoning (bible-wise or Tradition-wise). You would wish that you have such a book.
What you said there, beng, reminded me of this:
Pope Pius XI wrote:
[T]hose also turn aside from the right path, who think that the deposit of truth such laborious trouble, and with such lengthy study and discussion, that a man's life would hardly suffice to find and take possession of it; as if the most merciful God had spoken through the prophets and His Only-begotten Son merely in order that a few, and those stricken in years, should learn what He had revealed through them, and not that He might inculcate a doctrine of faith and morals, by which man should be guided through the whole course of his moral life.
