Here is what a Disciple of The Apostle John said. His name is Ignatius of Antioch and he was ordained a Bishop by Peter. Unlike the origional manuscripts of the NT, his writings are still preserved on the same paper he wrote them on between 90 AD and 107 AD.
"Wherever the Bishop appears, there let the people be; as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful to Baptize or give Communion without the consent of the Bishop; therefore whatever has his approval will be pleasing to God; thus will be safe and valid"
"Take not to those who hold heterdox opinions on the grace of Jesus Christ who has come to us. They abstain from the Eucharist and prayer because they do not confess that the Eucharist is the flesh of Jesus Christ who has come to us. Flesh which suffered for our sins and the father in His goodness raised up again. Those who deny this gift are perishing in their disputes"

Does the Church of Christ believe the bread and wine are the real presence of Jesus Christ or a symbol?

Agreed.

Also, when you realize that all modern Christianity is simply minor variations on Catholicism you will be able to start seeking the truth.

A Jewish synagogue prior to 70AD was not a building. It was a meeting of individuals to study and discuss scripture, philosophy and moral issues... usually in open public spaces like town squares and parks.

At what point did Christians start thinking of themselves as separate from Judaism?
The preacher of Antioch and later of Constantinople, John Chrysostom, complains in a series of eight sermons to his congregation, that "you must stop going to the Synagogue, you must not think that the Synagogue is a holier place than our churches are." This clearly indicates that the break between Judaism and Christianity, even as late as the 4th century ... still is not absolute, is not permanent.

Correct. It was only with Constantine and later Emperors' policies of exterminating Jews and non-Roman sects of Christians that the RCC emerged as the sole form of Christianity in the Empire and completely severed from Judaism.

Fortunately several manuscripts exist to dispels the lies of Modern Christianity.

This is a kerygma, a programmatic statement of faith. While Paul's letter is genuine -- his effort from around 50 AD -- the words in the above passage are not his. They represent a well-worn statement of faith, something he "received" and merely is repeating....
It also contradicts all the Canonical Gospels.

It is a statement as old -- or nearly so -- as Christianity itself.
Notice this kerygma is devoid of any reference to a virgin birth. A virgin birth was not necessary to the faith of the earliest Christians. Indeed, it was not known to them.
Fast forward to Mark, written around 70 AD. In Mark, a polemic against the Jerusalem Assembly, Jesus' family is antagonistic to him. In Mark 3, for example, the following passage is found:
<quoted text>
Odd that, given the annunciation found in Luke 1:
<quoted text>
So Mary, having been told by an angel of the special mission of her son in Luke 1, thinks her son is nuts when he engages in that mission in Mark 3. And early Christians exclude any reference to a virgin birth in one of their earliest statements of faith found in the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians.
Why?
Because, as Raymond Brown notes, the infancy narratives represent a late layer of tradition incorporated in the gospels -- an afterthought that in many respects was inconsistent with the earlier tradition recorded in Mark. The annunciation is part of that later tradition and something not known to the earliest Christians or to the author of Mark, a gospel entirely silent about Jesus' birth -- let alone any miracle birth.

First Mary may have gone along wit the MALE relatives ...whoever we believe them to be ....as a,MEDIATOR between her children .

The brothers at first did not BELIEVE...But they came around .
Mary knew her son was special ..But even SHE may not have known
how special. But SHE DID KNOW HE WAS ABOUT HIS,FATHERS WORK.

I imagine HER CHIEF CONCERN...was,to try to keep Him.safe ...perhaps,away from the Priests . She knew He was not popular with them ..

The writings of the Disciples of the Apostle are bothersome to you guys because they destroy your religion. You are forced to fall further into deceit and ignorance than you already are.

Yes, we have the original letters of Ignatius as written by him.. We do not have any of the original letters that the Apostles wrote, only copies.

The writings of the Apostolic fathers don't contradict the Bible, they support it even further.

Btw, just out of curiosity, why aren't Ignatius' letters in the Bible?

If non-catholics chose "not to believe" that the Catholic Church is the Church that Jesus HIMSELF initiated and established biblically and historically---it becomes "their choice"! Over 2000 years of TRUE Apostolic Church History and the biblically documented writings from the Early Church Fathers who gave ALL of us the bible in 382,393, and 397 is "overwhelming proof enough". It then comes down to the 2000 years of Historical and Biblically VERIFIABLE TRUTH of Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church ---verses-------- the "personal opinions" of non-catholics and (in particular bible only editorializing self-appointed interpreters) who want to discuss , argue or debate the subject. The fact is that "THERE IS NOTHING TO DEBATE"!!!! The TRUTH has been proven over and over and over again for over 2000 years. There is NOTHING TO DISCUSS OR ARGUE!! If non-catholics want to debate the issue then they can go argue with the other 42,100 bible only contradicting "opinionate preachers" who can't agree on ANYTHING accept judging, rippinhg, condemning and hostily attacking the TRUE faith and salvation of other Christians (especially Catholics). It is the ONLY thing they have in common!! Attacking the historical and biblical TRUTH of Jesus Christ and HIS One True Apsotolic Catholic Church!!
Only catholics believe that your church is the True Church no other faith agrees with them and that includes the Orthodox Church

Circumstances,of her brothel. Pregnancy and marriage ..Probably in later years ..Luke, speaking to her She was moved ..LED....INSPIRED .

HER BETROTHAL...pregnancy and marriage ..
The ANGELS ..THE MAGI
AND THE CHILFREN IF BETHLRHEM .

ITS not like today when every personal thing is put on the WEB ..

And she was a MIDEST JEWISH WOMAN.

But Luke was,writing an account of His whole life ..not just what the other writers wrote of their experiences ...

Correct.

Every Abrahamic cult, sect and denomination and their members claim to be the only ones with "The Perfect Word of God".

Only one out of 30,000 Christian denominations is right, the others are going to Hell. I bet $1,000,000 yours is The One.

Rose, Mary knew Jesus is God. She knew going in . She knew because she is the Immaculate Conception. We pray and Mary is the closest to Christ, She delivers our prayers straight to Him.
