Jesus established the Catholic Church and it is only in the Catholic Church that we have continuity between todays leaders and the Apostles; this continuity is called Apostolic Succession through the laying on of hands from the present bishops to the Apostles. By the laying on of hands the Holy Spirit imparts a special grace on the recipient; giving the recipient a greater share in the life of God through grace.<quoted text>You are mixing politics with spirituality. Such seems to be a mistake made by many who try to hold a monopoly on religion to control others. The scripture informs us "that without faith, it is impossible to please God." That being so, I assume it is your faith that validates the catholic church over the protestant church, right? I say that, because you were not around to see Peter give anyone any set of keys to do anything. Once again, you are inserting politics into religion. The only reason Catholics had a problem with King James, is because he took power from the Catholic church, via translating the word of God from Latin into English. I Guess that is what the catholic church refers to as heracy ?
When Jesus returns, do you think he will approve of your huge megaplexes called churches, and would he approve of the huge money maker that the church has become ? Would he approve of your using of politics to minipulate God's people ? Was it not Jesus who whipped the money changers out of the temples? When did religion turn into big business ? There is no one true church, just one true God. Those who love God and submit to him, are his beloved. anything else is politics, and I'm disgusted with political teachers.
King James had no authority from God to translate the Holy Bible into English or any other language. As can be seen from the many denominations of Christians the Catholic Church was right in knowing people would misunderstand the Holy Bible by interpreting it with a carnal mind and not the mind of God.
The temples of Jerusalem were richly furnished because they were the house of God as are the Catholic Churches are now. Catholics give but a small portion of their wealth to build fitting places for the tabernacles of the Lord to reside throughout the world. Jesus is now present physically in every Catholic Church tabernacle throughout the world.
muslims have built a large monument to a few black stones and muslims spend billions of dollars traveling across the world to gaze upon them; for what?
