Acts 15: 27 “Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will also report the same things by word of mouth.<quoted text>
The pastors in the 20 competing protestant groups in my town are reading it for themselves and can't seem to agree on which group is the real deal. If they really had the Holy Spirit guiding them, wouldn't they form one single denomination and make sure all the pastors are preaching the same thing?
Acts 9: 17 And Ananias went his way, and entered into the house; and putting his hands on him said, Brother Saul, the Lord, even Jesus, that appeared unto thee in the way as thou camest, hath sent me, that thou mightest receive thy sight, and be filled with the Holy Ghost.
18 And immediately there fell from his eyes as it had been scales: and he received sight forthwith, and arose, and was baptized.
Here Paul is clearly ordained by a member of the church. He did not just do a jiggy and boom he was saved. Ananias goes on to say rise and be baptized to wash away your sins, but false Apostles like preston ignore it. They ignore Hebrews, they ignore that Christ gave authority to the Apostles. They ignore that clearly men were appointed and chosen. It is so obvious within scripture and history that the church is the Catholic church. They ignore what Paul says to Timohy not to ordain just any johnny come lately. Protestants utterly disregard the fact that heretics before them and satan twisted scripture out of context to make their own world of teachings.
