Jesus said TO ST. PETER (not to everyone who picks up a KJV);
18 And I say to you: That you are Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give to you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever you shall bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever you shall loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.
You are not God. You don't decide who is part of the Body of Christ.
St. Peter, with St. Paul, founded the Church in Rome. St. Paul speaks of the Church in Rome who's faith is known throughout the world.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
NO CORRUPTIBLE MAN ON EARTH FOUNDED THE TRUE CHURCH...
The True Church (UNDER GRACE) was birth through the travail/sufferings,
death ....of Jesus Christ His son and came forth with Him from the tomb
on the third day AND WILL SOON FOLLOW HIM IN HIS ASCENSION WHEN JESU
CATCHES AWAY HIS BRIDE.
