Yeah Christ established his church. He gave the Keys to Peter. He said I name you Peter (Rock) and upon this Rock I will build my church. Peter is the rock and Jesus prayed that he would strengthen the others. Notice how when Jesus reinstated him after his denial. He called him Simon to his fallen name. 3x he asks him do you love me and even more then these which were the other Apostles who were right there. 3x was Holy Tradition when instituting an office. The King had 12 servants but only 1 was given the keys until the king returns. The keys werent the bible not put together yet of the books they choose to accept with their own interpretation. The Lord said he would send them a helper, The Holy Spirit. Muslims say it was Mohmmad. In Acts Peter boldly leads them out and in the temple he recalls the words of Jesus. When they bring you before the synagogues the holy sprit will tell you what to say. You may have heard the chain is only as strong as its weakest link. Well God often chose the most unlikely to raise them up to do his will to greater show his Glory. So those today who demean Peter and act like they are better demean the Lord and his choice as they do with Mary. His confession if you will was revealed from the Lord, but the Lord did not say he would build his church upon himself or the revelation that was given to Peter. He gave the Keys to Peter and all the Apostles would have authority to bind and loose, but not to the exclusion of the Key Holder as it was in Israel and the Church is the New Israel. According to Truth the church is any group of false teachers called out who say they follow scripture. Every heresy used scripture to seperate themselves from the church. Wherever 2 or 3 heretics/false teachers are gathered apart from the church. No Jesus is not there. He picked the Apostles They chose others and said to remember what you have learned and from whom you have learned it. Paul instructs Timothy much later not to ordain just anyone. In Protestant world that means a mail order preacher degree. Protestants follow charismatic men and interpretations that fit with their world view of individual truths. Self As Hojo pointed out Paul in Ephesians says that Through The Church the truth would be revealed. The pillar of the truth. Peter warns the unlearned wrest scripture unto their destruction, but all Protestants have made themselves authorities saying they know the truth. The bible has something to say about teachers as well ignored by most protestants. Paul was sent to Ananias a member of the church to be ordained and Baptized. So we see clearly there was a hierarchy. Their were approved men who were chosen. They were given authority and their was always monarchal Bishops never just a body of loose believers each doing there own thing. Correction was given this is what most of the letters about. Have a good day.
Your popes have eternally murdered far more people than any person you could name with their false doctrines of salvation by baptism and other doctrines of devils. When you stand at the Great White throne judgment with your many Roman Catholic buddies and make excuses as to why you preached a gospel which led many to eternal destruction what do you suppose Jesus will say. Oh, thats right. Your Jesus does not talk because he is a cracker. Right? Your excuses will not save you.

World's Biggest Stock Broker

......The Catholic Church, therefore, once all her assets have been put together, is the most formidable stockbroker in the world. The 'Wall Street Journal' said that the Vatican's financial deals in the U.S. alone were so big that very often it sold or bought gold in lots of a million or more dollars at one time.

......Therefore, the Vatican was, and still is, the most redoubtable wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. No one knows for certain how much the Catholic Church was, or is worth in terms of dollars and other currencies, not even the pope himself.

That is the true situation borne out by a Vatican official who, when asked to make a guess at the Vatican's wealth today, replied very tellingly, "Only God knows."

All (anyone) has to do is go back to "day one" on this forum and read the Protestants that chastising and violently disagreeing each other, and calling each other names, each claiming to have the truth (listen to me, listen to me, I've go the truth)....You "fundies" are like the (tea cups) at Disneyland going around and around "aimlessly" with your own "personal opinions" which are as "shallow" as each one of the thousands and thousands of bible only "divided" interpretations of the WORD OF GOD!!!!We as Catholics will remain with the TRUTH OF GODS WORD, in and through "Our Lords" One True Catholic Church!!!
You can DO WHAT YOU WANT!!! Makes absolutely "no difference" to us!!!!
HOJO,

Unity in the BODY of CHRIST....

Ephesians 4:1

4 As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the CALLING you have received.

Ephesians 4:13

13 until we all ~~~~~reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature,~~~~~ attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

The unity of God’s people can never be fabricated by man...it must come by the Spirit of God.

The Catholic Church "lives on" because she was the only church AGGRESSIVE enough to torture and murder *heretics*. Most people were far too terrified to resist and thereby risk their lives, so they joined the church in order to be allowed to keep living.
Throughout history, though, there has always been some who resist this torture and murder of the Catholic Church and held to the Word of God, rather than believe the terrorist leaders of the Catholic Church.

Again. We have the Catholic Church to thank for Islamic terrorism.
For those outside both the Catholic Church and Islam the resulting terrorism of both groups looks exactly the same. People get tortured and dead if they don't join the terrorists.

No, actually it requires FAITH. Your faith is placed in a pope with a hat that looks much like a circus clown. My faith is placed in the finish work of Jesus Christ on the cross. Thank you.
Actually my faith is in Jesus Christ, not the Pope.
Really though, what's the difference to the fundie about having a Pope? Everyone of you either follow one or made yourself one. Only you've assumed more authority than our Popes.
Our Popes are not allowed to change the word of God. If Francis said tomorrow,'we are goin with sola scripture now', he'd be changing the word of God and would be rebuked because that's not what Jesus taught nor His Apostles. The Church they established is still visible- funny hats and all.

For being the only true church on the planet why did they have to kill millions and force them into Catholicism back in the dark-middle ages?Not trying to knock them but I have always wondered this. why would you have to force someone to choose life or your religion? if your religion was so great then people would want to join and not have there lives in jeopardy for saying Thanks, but No thanks. Then there was the inquisitions, hmmmmm

You bible only "fundies" have been "going downhill" ever since Luther "invented his "man-made" (pre-fabricated) Sola Ecclesia fictitious (half-truth, half heresy) Christianity some 500 years ago at the beginning of the Reformation!!! Jesus Christ NEVER taught to His Apostles (or ANYONE else for that matter) that The TRUTH of the WORD OF GOD was in the bible alone!! PROOF of what Jesus ACTUALLY taught is the WORD OF GOD ALONE which comes to us from Christ HIMSELF and HIS Apostles through BOTH the written and the oral tradition (2 Thess 2:15) which has been entrusted to the Church that Jesus builds upon the rock of Peter (Matthew 16:13-21. The ineffable wisdom of God is (only) made known through HIS Church (Eph 3:9-10)which is PROVEN, VERIFIED and AUTHENTICATED by Paul in I Timothy 3:15, when he calls THE CHURCH (not the bible alone) the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH! Your distorted and perverted "man-made" bible only (opinions) Confrinting--- are just another one of the (contradicting) 42,000+
"editorialist "bible waiving" preachers" that DO NOT SPEAK FOR GOD and never will!-------- ONLY, until you come to the TRUTH of the TRUE WORD OF GOD (2 Thess 2:15) and TRUE Salvation in Jesus Christ that HE gave us over 2000 years ago, in and through HIS One True Apostolic Catholic Church,(only then) will your preaching begin to have ANY resemblance of "credibility"!!! Currently "it has little of nothing at all"!!!!!!! Your bible only ministry Confrinting, is nothing more than a vindictive and hatefilled anti-catholic (opinionated)------trash talking"----"clangin g cymbal or a noisy gong" (I Cor 13:1)

.......Moreover, Avignon in the south of France served as the papal seat from 1309 to 1377 -- the last of the so-called ‘Avignonese popes’ was Gregory XI, who was born Pierre-Roger De Beaufort in Limoges-Fourche.(No Frenchman has served as the Holy Father since then.)

......But now in the second decade of the 21st century, with the College of Cardinals having elected a new Pontiff in the Vatican -- Pope Francis of Argentina -- France’s Catholic Churches are increasingly bereft of parishioners.

"Many are called, but few are chosen"

Many people hear the call of God which comes through His revelation of Himself through two things—the creation and the conscience within us. But only the "few" will respond because they are the ones who are truly hearing. Jesus said many times,“He who has ears to hear, let him hear”(Matthew 11:15; Mark 4:9; Luke 8:8, 14:35).

It is unfortunate that people not of the Catholic faith have taken your verse above and not given regard to the language it was being conveyed in. Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew languages have to be recognized and taken into consideration when interpreting this passage. We have our Church Fathers who have done this and we have the true meaning of what Jesus was saying. They (non Catholics) just interpret it to fit their own agenda and beliefs.

Sad but true.

Bye bye France. Don't let the door hit you in the behind. Truth is truth, the Catholic Church will not change because France decided they wanted something different. Remember the King of England who wanted something different too? How's it going these days for that Church.. They've splintered into 500 different truths.

wow I am not sure what is worse. A catholic defending there faith or a radical Christian who quotes the bible like it is actual truth and fact. I mean the bible is man made, not the literal word of God like some of you radicals do when you throw these verse around as if it's law. wow what is worse in many ways. I really think the radical Christians are the Cancer of our country. There is nothing wrong with having faith and nothing wrong with belonging to a certain religion, if anything it is actually needed in societies because of how ignorant and stupid most humans can be. but please to the radicals out there you really don't understand how stupid and ignorant you come off as. nobody is listening to what you say. it is almost as if your talking to your self and being laughed at when you throw out these bible verses left and rite. And to the Jesus thumpers, you are even worse. I would bet you more people have been killed in the name of Jesus then anyone person overdosing off drugs, bet my life on that.

Ok Cusser read this:
Psalm 18:2 The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

- so is both Jesus and Peter the rock?
- Is Jesus the only Rock?
- Is the bible contradicting itself?
- Catholic church got it wrong and they use this verse to control the minds of weak folks like yourself?

But you are correct withthe aspect that whatever you or I believe, does require the Self.
Why don't you begin posting teachings by Jesus on salvation, instead of your own opinions?
If you were to, you would get a much better understanding of why you fail to beleive in what Jesus taught.
