I agree the Church keeps great records. The good and the bad. The Church is made up of sinners. The Apostles were sinners.<quoted text>
The Catholic Church strayed from the teachings of the Apostles, adding to the Word of God. The great falling away may be where YOUR church history is traced to. It may be a good historical account of the church turning from its roots. Thanks to the CC, we have clear writings that demonstrate how the church got off track. The CC done a superb job keeping track with all of its false teachings that contradict Scripture. What you believe to be Church History really is a record of Church Apostasy. Thanks to all of the Historical writings from the CC, we can compare that to INSPIRED scripture and know that the CC is a false Church.
At what point do you think that Jesus allowed his Church to fail even though he promised he would not?
Why did he wait 1500 years to correct his mistake?
Are you a COCer? It took God 1800 years to create you.
