The True Christian Church is the Orthdodox Church.

The Roman Patriarchate was once Orthodox, alongside Jerusalem, Antioch, Alexandria, and Constantinople.

The Patriarchate of Rome split in 1054 A.D. from the Orthodox Church. From Rome split the protestants anglicans and now thousands of sects.

But the Orthodox Church is still there.

While Rome is still has apostolic succession, it is no longer seen as the Orthodox Church.

Mary and Joseph were suppose to be Jews. Jews do NOT believe in sons of God yet their son Jesus is suppose to be the son of God, and the story goes that Mary and Joseph lived almost their entire lives as devout Jews..
........makes no common sense.

Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the SONS OF GOD came to present themselves before the LORD...

Old Testament...Jews DID believe in 'sons of God'.

Um, your passages speak of the apostles. They are the "disciples" in question here.
GIF said:
ALL THE DISCIPLES OF JESUS HAVE THE KEYS...
"Peace be unto you.
Joh 20:20 And when he had so said, he shewed unto them his hands and his side. Then were the DISCIPLES glad, when they saw the Lord.
Joh 20:21 Then said Jesus to THEM again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.
Joh 20:22 And when he had said this,
he breathed on them, and
saith unto them,
Receive ye the Holy Ghost:
Joh 20:23 Whose soever sins ye remit,
they are remitted unto them; and
whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.
BEST READ YOU BIBLE
The Bible said: DISCIPLES.
The 12. The Apostles. They received His authority-only them.

Jesus appeared to only them-the 12 (actually, 11).

Noted that you left out Verse 24:

24 Now Thomas (also known as Didymus[a]), one of the Twelve, was not with the disciples when Jesus came. 25 So the other disciples told him,“We have seen the Lord!”

Sorry, GIF.

I'm right and I'm not even a self-proclaimed lifelong bible scholar and preacher such as yourself.

If your claim is true, what does that say about Jesus that He oversaw such a terrible child abuse scandal?
Sorry, but I can't believe that Jesus would ever allow such events by an "only" Church.
History tells us that all Churches have faults, and that no Church has stood out in terms of morals -- especially the Roman Catholic Church.
Your last Pope resigned amid scandal. His own countrymen spoke with their feet. Bad people, or bad morals and values at the top?
Get off your moral high horse.
Heaven.

That's where Jesus went.

Thanks.

"• If you are a Lutheran, your religion was founded by Martin Luther, an ex-monk of the Roman Catholic Church, in the year 1517.

• If you belong to the Church of England, your religion was founded by King Henry VIII in the year 1534 because the Pope would not grant him a divorce with the right to remarry.

• If you are a Presbyterian, your religion was founded by John Knox in Scotland in the year 1560.

• If you are a Congregationalist, your religion was originated by Robert Brown in Holland in 1582.

• If you are a Protestant Episcopalian, your religion was an offshoot of the Church of England, founded by Samuel Seabury, in the American colonies in the 17th century.

• If you are a Baptist, you owe the tenets of religion to John Smyth, who launched it in Amsterdam in 1606.

• If you are of the Dutch Reformed Church, you recognize Michelis Jones as founder because he originated your religion in New York

If you are a Methodist, your religion was founded by John and Charles Wesley in England in 1774.

• If you are a Mormon (Latter Day Saints), Joseph Smith started your religion in Palmyra, New York in 1829.

• If you worship with the Salvation Army, your sect began with William Booth in London in 1865.

• If you are a Christian Scientist, you look to 1879 as the year in which your religion was founded by Mary Baker Eddy.

• If you belong to one of the religious sects known as “Church of the Nazarene”,“Pentecostal Gospel”,“Holiness Church,”, or “Jehovah’s Witnesses,” your religion is one of the hundreds of new sects founded by men within the past hundred years.

If you are a Roman Catholic, your church shared the same rich apostolic and doctrinal heritage as the Orthodox Church for the first thousand years of its history since during the first millennium they were one and the same Church. Lamentably, in 1054, the Pope of Rome broke way from the other four Apostolic Sees (Patriarchates), by tampering with the original Creed of the Church, and considering himself to be the universal pastor over other Sees and infallible.

• If you are a Uniate Roman Catholic of any Eastern Rites, you had your roots in the Orthodox Church, but were forced into the Roman Catholic Church, either by financial hardship, or regional political/ ecclesiastical unrest (e.g.: Malankara Syrian Catholics), or by western colonialization (e.g.: Syro-Malabar Rite), or by military strength.

IF you are an Orthodox Christain
If you are an Orthodox Christian, you religion was founded in the year 33 by Jesus Christ, the Son of God. It has not changed since that time. Our Church is now almost 2000 years old. And it is for this reason, that Orthodoxy, the Church of the Apostles and the Fathers is considered the true “One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church.”

• This is the greatest legacy we can pass on to the young people of the new millennium!"

You can pretend it's not there, but its there.
St. Peter does have primacy of honour and is considered 1st Among Equals with the Apostles, not Superior or Supreme among submordinates.

The Faith He Held and the Traditions of the First Church are kept without change in the Orthodox Church.

I answered it.
I told you who got the authority, cited the conferral, and told you and cited where protestants don't believe that authority exists now. Any protestant on the board will tell you that they don't believe that apostolic authority succeeded to the present. GIF even acknowledged it to me directly-he said only God can absolve the penalty of sin for another person.
If typing "bullshite" makes you feel better, keep it up, but I responded.

GIF did not tell you that 'only God' could absolve the penalty of sin for another person.

You have been commanded to forgive those who sin against YOU. You cannot forgive those who sin against me, or anyone else. God can and does forgive all who come to Him repenting. But if YOU do not forgive those who sin against you, He will not forgive YOU.

Mat 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

Mat 6:14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
Mat 6:15 BUT IF YOU FORGIVE NOT MEN THEIR TRESPASSES, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER FORGIVE YOUR TRESPASSES.

St. Peter did bring the faith to Rome and Antioch, where Christians were first called Christians. He also, by the Power of the Holy Spirit helped baptized over 3000 persons, according to the book of Acts and by his preaching and baptism in the Name of Jesus, many were saved.

Likewise today, the Holy Sacraments and prayers of the saints and commmunion of the saints are all a great help and great tools and vehiclces that aid us on the straighest path to Christ. Just as Noah's Ark was given to humantity to save those who were on it, so God gave us the Holy Church to sail us to Safety... to heaven.

It is Christ's will that all Christians be one again.

LOL I like both those statements; especially the first one: "WHERE DID JESUS GO, SO THAT HE HAD TO LEAVE SOMEONE ELSE IN CHARGE OF HIS CHURCH? "

Jesus said, "I will NEVER leave you, nor forsake you." He said that He would send another Comforter (The Holy Spirit) to guide us and teach us. He also said, "We (He and the Holy Spirit) will come to you."

In the Upper Room they were ALL FILLED with the Holy Spirit...and "this promise is unto you, AND TO ALL THAT ARE AFAR OFF, AS MANY AS THE LORD OUR GOD SHALL CALL."

He is HERE right now. Give HIM your attention, honor and praise.

When protestants left the Roman Catholic Church, their intention was current, but they threw out the baby with the bathwater, so to speak, instead of simply returning to the Orthodox faith.

There is a realy priesthood belonging to Christ. Christ ordained his Apostles and said to them, "whomever sins you remit they are remitted, whomever's sins you retain they are retained". St. Paul also warned very clearly, "be very careful on whom you lay hands [i.e. Ordain].

The book of acts speaks very clearly of "Episcopos, Presvyetros, and Diaconon", Bishops, priests, and deacons.

All the writings of the early Chruch show much evidence that the Church practiced sacraments and undestood the Holy Tradition and the Faith the same way apostolic Christians (Catholic and Orthodox) do today, starting with St. Polycarp (a direct student of St. John the Apostle) and those who were later acquiated with them, such as St. Ignatius, St. Ireneus etc.

The Communities of Christians living with these persons, who were very close to the teachings of the Apostles resemble very much the Orthodox Church today, whereas protestants, do not resemble them in the same fullness at all.

Unlike the Roman Church, the Orthodox Church does not accept purgatory, supremacy and infallibility of the pope, the teaching that St. Mary was born with a different nature than humanity, or the change to the Nicean Creed with respect to the Filioque, and only monks, bishops and the Patriarch, as a matter of discipline must be celebate, priests can be married, as they are with Eastern Rite Catholics.
