No Dan, it is not "drivel". The NT does in fact "provide instructions" on "how Christ's church was to be organized." Some just choose to ignore it and instead operate in the 'new and improved' way man feels is best.

Pay attention to the verses below. You will notice I have left out Pope's and Cardinals and whatever else you might be aware of in the Catholic church. Had those offices been mentioned in the Bible I would've included them as a part of the Biblical organization of the church.

1 Tim. 3:1-13
Titus 1:5-9
1 Pet. 5:1-5
Eph. 4:11-16
Heb. 13: 7, 17
Acts 14:23, 11:30, 15:2, 4, 6, 22-23, 16:4, 20:17, 21:18

The importance is which Church was described in scripture. That WAS your question, recall?
The Catholic Church resembles the scriptural church and I gave a few examples why - beliefs and practice found in scripture. None of those beliefs are held by the Church of Christ.
Those were the beliefs I asked you to explain. You mentioned a few things but you never explained their importance.

You've spun me in so many posts now I can't remember what they were.

He can't remember what they are, either. All Catholics remember is what the pope tells them to remember.

If I may, what you have just described is why there are protestants and catholics. When the Church split, these were the topics that were discussed.
A Catholic will stand with their denomination just as a Baptist will theirs.
that is the problem, we all should stand with God.
God alone is the start and finisher of our faith.
Denomination means absolutely nothing.
We are not to stand on our denomination, but on the Rock of our Salvation, Jesus Christ.

Yep. Paul contradicted Jesus constantly.

Thanks for pointing that out.

"Wherever two or more are gathered in my name, there am I ."

Of course there isn't any money or power to be gained following Jesus. Good thing Paul showed everyone how to make a buck off Jesus' blood.

I can still worship God with one or two others just as you have pointed out but I still belong to the church.

When we are placed "in Christ", entering His Kingdom, the church, through our new birth, after our death to sin in the watery grave of baptism for the remission of sins, we are Christians. Our sins have been washed away. Christ paid the price for them, and we become members of His church or His body. He is the "head".

As you mentioned when two or more of us Christians gather together he is there with us.

When say 500 or more of us gather together for worship, and do mission work together and family events together and so on, there are responsibilities among that local flock of the church that have to be tended to. This is where the organization of Christ's church, the Bible way, begins to be of importance. This is when some specific duties need to be assigned and taken care of responsibly. This is where those verses I posted earlier to Dan, apply.

Paul never contradicted Jesus.

Two questions for Catholics in bitter denial....

1... According to RCC teachings at the time of Thomas Jefferson's death, would Thomas Jefferson have had any hope of salvation?

Hint: Thomas Jefferson died years before Vatican 2.

2... How is it possible to make one's posts here disappear?

Hint: Though I may be awe-inspiring, I am not that powerful.

Punch Lines, Proof Texts, and Paul
by Dr. J. R. Dodson

“A text taken out of context is a pretext for a proof text; a text taken out of context is a pretext for a proof text; a text taken out of context...”[1] If you were to pop by one of my Exegesis classes, there’s a good chance you’d hear me leading students in that chant.

It’s often followed with “Context-Context-Context. Do not make a verse say something it was never meant to say.” One day, I called this hermeneutical foul on a student; “You cannot take that verse out of context.” To which she replied:“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” My stomach turned. My face distorted. I was about to rend my garments and scream “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani ?”(“My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”). But then I saw it on her face: she had set me up. Her classmates laughed me out of it. And for once, I was glad to be the butt of the joke.

But the scholarly debate demonstrates that Paul’s proof text of Habakkuk 2.4 in Romans 1.17 is no laughing matter. Rather than tapping into the passage’s context that stresses a steadfast trust in God when all Sheol breaks loose, Paul’s citation uses Habakkuk to say something different than what the prophet originally meant. Even so, scholars still argue as to what it is exactly that Paul intends to say through Habakkuk. Does the apostle read a messianic promise into the words of the minor prophet?“Christ, the righteous one, will live on the basis of faith.”(Thus, the Messiah’s faithful life reveals the righteousness of God.)[2] Or, perhaps Paul refashions Habakkuk’s verse into a declaration about obtaining everlasting life.

If the citation is meant to be the latter, a proclamation about salvation, then another question arises. Does “by faith” modify the noun that precedes it in the Greek text or the verb that follows it?[3] That is to say,“by faith” may go with “the righteous”: the person made righteous by faith will live.[4] Contrariwise,“by faith” can modify “will live” so as to stress the means of eternal life: one will be granted everlasting life on the basis of faith. The VOICE translation of Romans 1.17 understands that these options are not mutually exclusive. Indeed, the righteous person has been made righteous by her faith in the faithful Messiah; she will, therefore, receive everlasting life by it.“By faith the just will obtain life (The Voice).”

Although Paul takes the verse out of context, he does not stray too far from its main idea.“The point in Habakkuk is that faith is the key to one’s relationship with God.”[5] However, whereas Habakkuk strained his eyes to see faith beyond the shadows of the impending exile, Paul sees more clearly—since on his way to Damascus he collided with the light of the truth of the gospel of faith.[6]

As for my students, then, unless—on the road to Dallas—Christ appears to them in their Priuses (or is it, Prii?), they should steer clear of taking verses out of context. There’s plenty of wisdom for faith and for life in the original meanings.

Take the Bible and prove that the saints are in Heaven...
Jesus said
Joh 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
Joh 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
IF THE SAINTS ARE IN HEAVEN...AS YOU ALLEGE?
WHO IS JESUS COMING BACK TO RECEIVE UNTO HIMSELF....,THAT THEY MIGHT BE
.WITH HIM?
who were the Saints bringing the prayers before God in the book of Revelation?

After the Apostles died, many heretics arose (under the guidance of the Devil). They began preaching whatever they wanted about Jesus. most of it fizzled away; it didn't stick. Some of it came back 1,600 yrs later. It still doesn't stick, Confrint.
When people were confused after the Apostles died, they looked to the newest Bishops who were disciples of the Apostles. Ignatius, Polycarp, and Clement of Rome. They had the authority to decide what was valid. They walked with the Apostles and new them personally. The Holy Spirit steered them to truth. After they died, the Holy Spirit did the same with the next group.

Would Christ have it any other way? Would He have a conspiracy ministry until the Ellen Smith arrived 1800 yrs later??

You need to read what the Apostolic fathers thought about Christianity - since they had the luxury of hearing the Gospel in detail from the Apostles mouths.

Dead link.

Much like the RCC.

Maybe the new Pope will be "guided" this time and the RCC will no longer be a disgrace to Christianity and become a moral leader instead of a comedy club staple.
