tell us reg when He gave the church that absolute Authority.<quoted text>
This is one of the funniest things I've ever read!
Christ leaves mankind a church to whom He's given His absolute authority:
19 And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.
18 Then Jesus came to them and said,“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
A church commissioned to preach His word and confect His sacraments. A church established by Him to bring all men to Himself.
And where does LTM direct people?....
.....to an INTERNET WEB SITE!!
your answer is proof enough that it wasnt given to your roman catholic church, if you are truthful.
