Yes!! That's it!! You've just described Protestantism--42,000+ contradicting, inconsistent conflicting "different" denominations. Nice try Oxbow but Catholicism is not a denomination---One faith, one doctrine, one TRUTH, and the (ONLY ONE) TRUE Church!!
IN GOD'S EYES THERE ARE NO DENOMINATIONS. NOT EVEN ROMAN CATHOLIC..
NO MAN ON EARTH is sent of God to control the GRACE of God.
your pope cannot control GOD'S FREE GRACE...he lies if he says he can.
and you are deceived if you believe he does.
The HOLY GHOST IS THE ONE THAT CONVENIENCES A MAN THAT HE IS A SINNER..
The HOLY GHOST IS THE ONE THAT GIVES A MAN THE REVELATION OF HIS NEED OF SALVATION.....AND DRAWS HIM TO RESPOND TO THE WORD OF GOD.
The HOLY GHOST IS THE ONE THAT CONVICTS A MAN OF SIN AND BRINGS A MAN TO GOD...
THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST CLEANSES A PERSONS FROM SIN AND
.MAKES THEM HOLY.
THE HOLY GHOST IS THE ONE THAT PERFORMS MAINTENANCE IN THE LIFE OF
A PERSON ...ONCE HE HAS ACCEPTED CHRIST AS HIS PERSONAL SAVIOR.
A CHURCH IS A PLACE OF FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS...
WHILE THERE ARE MANY HOSPITALS FOR PHYSICAL SICKNESS...
THERE ARE ALSO MANY DIFFERENT CHURCHES FOR SIN SICKNESS...
NOT ALL PATIENT'S IN THE HOSPITALS RECEIVE THE SAME TREATMENT...
AND MEDICATIONS, THEY ARE PROVIDED ACCORDING TO THE INDIVIDUAL NEEDS
NOT ALL SINNERS ULTIMATELY RECEIVE THE SAME SPIRITUAL MEDICATION EITHER...
BUT ALL SHOULD RECEIVE THE BASIC CARE, FOR THEIR SOULS...AS A PART OF THE BODY OF CHRIST
