QUESTION: Was the Church built on Saint Peter, as Jesus apparently indicated in Matthew 16:17-18?

ANSWER: The true Church is built upon the living Christ, the false Church is built upon a dead man.

Let me explain: Peter had just given a marvelous testimony.

He said to Jesus,“You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.”

It is upon that mighty truth that the true Church is built.

This is the eternal Rock on which God’s Church securely rests.

All the way through Holy Scripture, Christ the second person of the Godhead, is called the Rock,“…That Rock was Christ”(1 Corinthians 10:4).

See also the following texts: Deuteronomy 32:4,15,18,31 and Psalm 18:2,31,46; 28:1; 62:2; 78:35; 92:15.

Christ, the Living Rock, permanent, safe, secure, immovable and everlasting, is the foundation on which His Church is built.

“For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.”(1 Corinthians 3:11)

you really believe that this is the TRUE CHURCH of CHRIST! lol
I'm starting to see a side of you that raises some eyebrows. I see a sorta coniving Sera. It seems like you're willing to throw many things out there in order to smear the Catholic Church. I think its a deceptive tactic and I don't like it.
I will keep my distance until further notice.

Stupid dogmas for stupid people!
INDEED!

If this deity so hates "evil", then [WHY] does he allow it to continue...or even exist.

I see a totally different equation here.
It is the "true self" of the deity presented... when the deity was found to be unacceptable by the masses....and "satan" was invented to deflect the deity's true attributes.
YHVH is "Enlil" who "hated" mankind.
Enki(who created and loved mankind) was construed by religionist priests as the serpent(the symbol of the doctor/geneticist), and the evil one.

Actually it is completely contrary to what you have been taught....and even ~that~ is incorrect.
It is known that "Enki" brought civilization(mankind) to this planet well over 70,000 years ago.

Do you know there is talk amongst psychologist, about diagnosing religious fanatics as having a certain level of mental illness? I think I saw one story about it here on Topics last week.
There is a point where a guy like me just throws in the towel because I'm dealing with mind boggling ignorance from you.
Keep Saturday Holy if you want. I could care less. As a Catholic I'm going to continue gathering with my breathern on Sunday to celebrate the Holy Mass like the Apostles commanded; the day the Lord rose is Sunday. Sunday was established long before the Council of Laodicea proclaimed it official.
People like you forced the Church to hold council because you go around preaching false Christianitys. Then, when the Church publicly reaffirms certain teachings at these councils (like Sabbath worship), you turn around and stab them in the back, saying: "see everyone, the Roman Catholic Church just invented another doctrine Blah Blah".
What rubbish you talk, Clay. Not much point in trying to get through to you.
Did you watch the video about the Baptist Pastor?
No, of course not. Too bigotted.

Thank you for responding.
"And I will admit that I do not have the answer that you seek."
This is the honesty I was looking for, which you could have stated right from the beginning, but instead, you decided to drag it out to the level we did. But you did manage to reach a spot in the discussion that did allow you to dig deep inside your mind and admit this statement. I'll retract my comment and apologize for doing so. Though it was a strong word to use, you can see how it does apply to those who are not dishonest.
I agree, you should learn what you 'practice'- many do not, and you openly admitted your lack of this knowledge.
Although I do ask some "tough questions", they really are very simple to answer - if one is truly an honest person.
I do wonder, how and if you don't know those answer, how can you legitimately be a so-called "Christian"?
Like I've said in the past - to believe in someone - partially, like Jesus (as "Christians" do), and claim he is complete within those "half-teachings", then that person is not only lying openly to others, but more importantly lying openly to themselves.
A fraudulent character is then revealed.
Do you think that lying is acceptable in religion?
Thanks again for responding.
No I don't believe in lying period! I honestly did not intend to drag anything out.I didn't give much thought to your post as I didn't read it thoroughly.When I am on my computer I am called away alot by nick several times to do something for him or get something or medication time so by the time I get back to my computer,alot of the times I just go to the last page to catch up..and when I have time I scroll back...And honestly I am not the one to answer any questions about my faith.I can only answer what I know.Nick is the one to go to if you have questions about Orthodoxy.I will make it a point from now on to slow down and scan over the posts more carefully to make sure one is not getting by me...

Look Tiger, there is no point in debating anything with you. When you were on here last, we went over this Sabbath subject in detail. I provided links, letters, and quotes from the early Christian Church -who indeed called themselves Catholic- showing that they observed Sunday because the Apostles taught them so. Sunday didn't come from the Roman Empire. It couldn't have, they were too busy persecuting Christians!

But you do not care. As long as you can convince your brain, that the council of Laodicea installed Sunday to coincide with Sun god worship, I guess you feel your hands are washed.

In truth - "new age" has been around alot longer than what you seem to believe.
But since you've only heard about other religions and "fads" for only four years, that would mean you still have a lot more still to learn.
What they fail to recognize is that Their "abrahamic" religion IS new age., and a total elaboration and in contradiction to the "prime" teachings. That is why they do NOT adhere to the teachings of their "Jesus" who tried to re-introduce those basic actualities.
The cathaholic church circumvented the truths and actuality of what he taught (expressed).
The only true church? LOL!

"We were never close, Clay"

lol, no, I don't even know you. I said I'm going to keep my distance, but not because I thought we were close. I meant that I once considered you a respectable poster. An honest poster. But since that time you implied there is only child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church, I realized you might not be who I thought you were. And lately, there has been a wave of drive by smear tactics. This latest one about the acrobats performing in front of Pope Benedict with no shirts is puzzling. Are you trying to present the Pope and Cardinals as gay or something? Those types of acrobats would be too constricted if they wore shirts is my guess.

But whatever, I enjoy being on the receiving end of anti Catholicism. It reminds me of what Christ told His Apostles when the Church began, "If they persecuted me, they will persecute you".

Odd, huh?
And who thought self-preservation is of no use to a person.
:o)
No, I do not expect any to comprehend nor understand....but there is always that chance it might just light up a light...the abrahamics and others even before them have perverted truth so badly, that most can not know what is real.
All their scripture point to the truth, but it is so perverted, it would take a rocket scientist to divide it properly.
That is why scripture even says...

Knowledge is a wise man's virtue, and an ignorant man should be beaten with a staff.

Interesting video… Clay, this is for you.

Baptist Pastor Understands Sabbath

Published on Jun 20th, 2013

A Baptist pastor with a PhD in theology accepted that he finally found the seventh-day Sabbath truth.

For 56 years, the devil kept him blinded from the truth that the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD!

&fe ature=youtu.be

No apostle EVER taught to keep Sunday holy.

The RCC CLAIMS that she was the church who changed the Sabbath because SHE is ABOVE the Bible.

Watch the video.

Correction Clay...I never said the the abuse is only in the catholic church never! I have stated several times that abuse in ANY church was discusting including the Orthodox church.I am an honest poster and the problem that you catholics have with me is that counter attack to your claim of being the TRUE CHURCH.No I was not trying to present the Pope or any of the cardinals as being gay.My intend was the lack of respect in my opinion shown to the Vicor of Christ.If wearing shirts is to constricting then why did the wear pants? Those guys were doing a heck of a lot of splitting with there legs...shirts could have be wore.Body suits.The only presecuting being done to you is coming from your own church...that's the truth.

I watched her suffer with cancer for 2 years helpless to stop this cancer.And one day out of the blue she said to me.."mommmie when I die will you come with me.I am afraid to go alone"That changed me.Hopefully oneday I will be with her again.
I can understand this.
My wife, died in my arms in the emergency room entrance...it is what it is sis. I did my best. I don't wish to elaborate any more than that, other than I loved her more than life itself.
