There is only one church. We can agree on that. Any joe shmoe that picks up a bible and does what is required to become a member of that body in God's eyes he will add him to that body. That body is the church. Are you taking the power out of God's hands to work directly with people? Is God limited by what the Catholic Church does? I am not sure where you stand but guess solid in the Roman Catholic faith.<quoted text>
No I am not. But you surely agree that the line between a Christian and not a Christian is there....right? I mean, at what point is someone deemed 'not a Christian'? Or 'not a Protestant'.
The modern born again movement has nothing in common with the first 200 yrs of Protestanism. Are they considered 'Protestants'?
They deny there was ever a 'Church'. Instead of a 'Church' as the world has come to know, they replaced that title with 'a body of believers'. I assume that means any joe shmoe like OldJG, who picks up a KJV and dictates their own Christianity.
I just do not think Jesus Christ would have established so many opinions on His desire..,
You do realize that there were believers that took the message from Pentecost back to their respective countries. These followers have been following the word since the first century. Do you believe that Catholics are the only church or do you believe that the church is the believers that God has added to the church?
