CoC is a old name on a new lie.<quoted text> I'm not, because there not the first, the Church of Christ is. The date of the Church of Christ was established in 33 AD. Their is no mention of a catholic church in the bible, but there is a church called the Church of Christ being established in 33 AD. The catholic church has absolutely nothing to do with the bible as far as doing God's will as they don't even come close to doing as the bible says. In 2 Timothy 4:10, 11. Paul says only Luke was with him. Peter never was in the city of Rome. The whole organizational structure of the Church of Rome is built on false tradition and tragic misinterpretation of our Lord's words. It is built on tradition that is just not true.
Either the statements presented in the Bible are true, OR the contrary traditions are true. The traditions however have obvious errors thouroughly embeded in them and are clearly unreliable. One or the other has to be false. The Bible is the revelation from God and it proves itself to be what it claims to be. It is true. Peter never was in the city of Rome.
It's claim is as fallacious as any other "one true church".
The catholic church is not only the oldest church in existence.
It's also one of the oldest institutions in existence.
