Fine. Don't buy it. No skin off my teeth.<quoted text>
Why would Jesus suffer and die -- but then appoint a "one true church," headed by His earthly vicar -- to bring the world perfect teachings on morals -- but not make sure that church was an indisputable moral leader itself, and an earthly standard for Himself.
A few bad apples, OK.
But not on the Institutional scale we've seen so many times, and no way can a simple "oops" explain the words and actions of many, many of Jesus' supposed vicars.
You are insisting that Jesus doesn't have higher, uncompromising standards for HIS one-truly guided Church and vicars.
Nope, there is no way that Jesus of the Bible would have guided His one true Church into so many FUBAR situations.
No one-true church of Jesus would ever cause Ireland to break diplomatic relations.
Nope, I don't buy it.
Remember that Israel was very, very naughty for a couple thousand years. God still loves them.
