Romans 16:16b<quoted text>
As Catholics, we believe (and have always believed for 2,000 yrs) that scripture and Church are entwined together. We can not separate one and use it against the other. They flow in harmony.
Saban, its undeniable historic fact, that the Church came first and then the New Testament scriptures.
If the so - called- church of Christ, was the real one started by Jesus, they would know this.
The reality is: they popped up waaaay late in the game just like everybody else.
Again I would ask you (since you're purely Bible only) to show me where the books claim to be "the word of God". And where Jesus established these Books to be the sole authority on His Ministry?
"All the churches of Christ send greetings."
