It is quite interesting to see that Roman Catholics say that Protestantism is divided. There is a true form of Protestantism which exists regardless of the many varieties, and that is the orthodox doctrines in regards salvation, the Deity of Christ and other foundational doctrines.
But Roman Catholicism is itself divided, broadly between modernists and conservatives, but also on various rites and rituals. And there are differences between which “Church” Council mass one might follow (e.g. Trent or Tridentine versus post-Vatican 2). And among the more traditional Catholics are those who not only insist on retaining Latin, but some go all the way to rejecting the modern popes (e.g. Sedevacantists).
And far from holding one set of doctrine and catechism, teachings in Romanism have evolved. After all, teachings have actually developed over time, even quite recently:

Also, different Vulgates have been approved over time which differ in various passages. They are the Sistine, Clementine (with sub-catagories), Stuttgart and Nova Vulgata.
A Bible Revisionist (who attempted to alter the King James Bible throughout) known as “MKO” has posted on a viciously anti-King James Bible only forum that he is surprised how much the PCE has been accepted. Of course he and his friends cannot refrain from making all kinds of false accusations, including trying to link the PCE with Mormonism and even suggesting that we are one step away from saying that certain type-fonts are authentic. It seems that this “MKO” spent years trying to make his revision, which is, of course, unacceptable (and is languishing in obscurity).
Instead of staying with the time-honoured and accepted standards of King James Bible words, spelling and punctuation, he fiddled here and there, even using the Tomson Version as a reference to make changes!
“Although based predominantly on the original 1611 text with ye olde englysshe spellynge, the punctuation and spelling are both thoroughly modernized to 2008/2015 standards, which differentiates this edition from versions which are modernized to 1769 standards (as most current editions are). I understand some people will absolutely fault me for this choice, as well as for some of the editorial decisions I made; all the decisions I made were made to the best of my ability and knowledge, although some may say I took some liberty with the text.”
The warning here is: “Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.” (Proverbs 22:28). That’s why we need to stick with the Pure Cambridge Edition of the King James Bible.
Luke 18:7 And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them?
Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?
Some people sincerely believe that although God avenges His people, and saves them when they cry to Him, that apparently the question about faith on the Earth implies a negative answer.
Is Jesus coming back when there will not be faith on the Earth? The Biblical answer is that there will be faith when Christ returns, because (after all) who is it that He is coming for?
There must be many saved people because the Gospel must go to the nations (see Matthew 24:14; 28:19, 20). There must be many saved because Jesus said one will be taken and one left (which statistically is about 50% of the adult population). Also, the fact the knowledge of God should cover the Earth as the waters cover the sea would make for about 71% of the Earth’s total population (including children), since that is the percentage of water coverage on the Earth’s surface (see Habakkuk 2:14).
The Church, while on Earth, must grow up.
Ephesians 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Ephesians 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
