Jewish proselyte.

Not anywhere close to the kind of gentile found in Ephesians and Colossians, who had squat to do with Israel.

He doesn't need a Pope to explain it because there are no Popes or Catholics in the scripture explaining things. Philip was not Roman Catholic and he did very well, don't you think?
Acts 8:30 Philip ran up and heard him reading Isaiah the prophet, and said, "Do you understand what you are reading?"
Acts 8:31 And he said, "Well, how could I, unless someone guides me?" And he invited Philip to come up and sit with him.

OF course Phillip was a Catholic. He was ordained by the Apostles by the laying on of hands. Apostolic succession. If I remember right he was Deacon.

These verses prove that one cannot learn the Truth by just reading something on their own.

The Church taught the eunich. He couldn't understand himself and he was well educated.

You haven't told us who taught you?

Show us a spiritual distinction between an of the gentiles in the bible. Maybe it is in the book your two gospels are in which you have yet to show.

I was taught by the Son of God and his apostles in the written word called the bible. The book that does not mention the words Catholic or Pope or Mary worship.

1. The Roman centurion who 'loveth our country and buildeth us a synagogue."

Vs.

2. The Ephesian gentiles that Paul wrote his letter to. "Strangers from the covenants of promise".

Or did you wrongly assume that all gentiles in the Bible are exactly the same?

You have gentiles who feared God and blessed Israel, and you have gentiles that were idol-worshippers that were not allied with Israel, or the God of Abraham.

Look at Paul going to Athens and Ephesus in Acts. Who were they worshipping? It wasn't God.

The eunuch was just as gentile as the Ephesians or Colossians at one point until he converted to Judaism which the Ephesians and Colossians could also have done (either Jews or Gentiles prior to Christ). In Christ neither Jew nor Gentile. The eunuch, Ephesians, and Colossians which all accepted Christ were still Gentiles in the flesh but neither Gentile nor Jew in Christ. The only spiritual difference is saved or unsaved whether Jew or Gentile. It helps when you narrow it down to just one gospel, something about one gospel that will make so much more sense.

The church taught the eunuch but not the Roman Catholic church. Was Philip if you want to call him a deacon(the bible doesn't), a deacon in the Roman Catholic church?

The eunuch was allied with Israel. The Ephesian gentile was not.

And Philip never told that eunuch that Christ died for his sins, as the Ephesians were told. You can scour Acts 8 but you will never find it.

So back then, two gospels. Only one today. Paul's gospel. Romans 2:16 says that God will judge by it.

Better learn it.

What difference does it mean what it was called when at the time Phillip taught what scripture meant. This Church eventually became the Catholic Church and was referenced that in AD 110 by a direct disciple of St John, "wherever the Bishop is, there is the Catholic Church"

If you go back in the Bible, you can see Phillip being ordained and sent to convert. Then you see him reporting back to the Apostles, the Bishops, to come and lay hands on them, which is the sacrament of Confirmation.

Is your daddy a direct successor to the Apostles? If not he didn't have the authority to teach you the full Truth.

The Trinity wasn't called the Trinity in the Bible. Does that make it invalid.

That's what millions of other Prots say too and they don't agree with you.

Are they wrong and you are right? Asinine

Are you willing to stand up and say if you don't believe what I believe you don't have the fullness of the Truth. That your Church is the pillar and foundation of Truth Paul spoke of and that your Church has existed for 2000 and can be proven by history.?

Why would the OT scriptures matter to an Ephesian or Colossian gentile?
To show them, that just like the Jews, they were sinful, and after being diagnosed with the issue of sin they would see their need for a remedy:

Romans 3:9-10:“...for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles, that they are all under sin; (10) As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one...”

Don’t forget that Timothy was only half-Jewish (Acts 16:1). In fact, because his father was Greek, he was probably not really considered a Jew at all because Jewish lineage at the time was passed through the father—even though he was raised in the Jewish religion. This is why all the “begats” in Genesis and in the gospels list the father instead of the mother when tracing heritage.

Also, the OT is actually replete with gentiles.

Gentile Caleb was the only one who gave an honest report of the Promised Land. Gentile Ruth was the great-grandmother of David. And gentiles were even expected to obey some of the Law when living among the Israelites (Leviticus 17:8, 13).

Do you think that it is significant that Paul told Timothy that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead "according to my gospel."

That is a bold thing for Paul to say, what with Peter having preached the resurrection in Acts 2.

No, I do not think it is significant that Paul refers to it as “his gospel”. I don’t think it was anymore Paul’s gospel than it was anyone else’s. I think he calls it his gospel because he personally identified with it because it saved him.

Your quote shows your flaw. "Eventually became the Catholic church"...... The original church never became something else (If it did Christ spoke wrongly) called the catholic church mankind changed into the false RCC church as the bible said would happen.

Your history is clear the Roman Catholic or even just the Catholic church was never uttered by Christ or his apostles. See history does help explain things. It explains the RCC was a figment of mans thoughts and not Gods
