They define the Scripture as "all scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness..." -2 Timothy 3:16. Roman Catholics soon wanted to take over Northern Ireland with their beliefs. Also, the Roman Catholic Church wanted to be part of the Union with Ireland and Protestant wanted to stay part of the UK.
