Matthew chapter 10. Do we stand yoked to Jesus Christ? Who is yoked to Him AND abides in His word. These are the important questions to answer. Has the RCC exampled His word in such a way throughout the centuries? If not, then who has? But what really matters today for us is if we do those things and find ourselves in the number that Revelation says are those who overcome till the end through His Testimony from heaven, keeping the commandments of God, and overcoming the adversary by in the ways He declared?<quoted text>
Randy: It is all about Authority. Who did Jesus leave the Authority too? A book that anybody can decide on their own what Jesus taught that has created 30,000 churches, from writings produced 2000 years ago, with the originals gone, and with almost 30,000 translations across the world? You even like one of those that 1 Jewish man created 3 years ago by himself.
Do you believe that you know the fullness of the truth and that you can lead all to heaven?
OR you believe it doesn't matter what we believe, only that Jesus died for our sins and if we live a good life heaven is ours?
I believe Jesus when he gave the Keys to Peter and he told the Apostles to go start his Church which is the pillar and foundation of Truth, that is his Bride, that binds and looses, forgive sins or retains them? Whoever hears his Church hears him.
I believe the historical proof that the CC is the Church Jesus started because it it the only one for 1500 years and longest lived organization in the history of the world.
With all of the sinners in the Church over those 2000 years, God would have destroyed it if was not his Church.
And I'm to be lead to believe the Pope leads me in those things when he has been including those that Christ has not included in His group of friends and family? I don't think so.
