Yes his bride and it is not any denomination. His people are further described: "...the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.(Rev 14:12; 22:14) Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city."
40,000 denominations is meaningless as we can all found a denomination as we are all at a different level in our relationship with the Lord.

If there were no humans on earth there would be no religions on earth.

Human brains were responsible for the creation of religion, and human brains refuse to let go of religion.

And so it goes.

Maybe it would be best for earth if a god does come and take the holy ones home and destroy the wicked ones.

Then at last other animals could live and die natural deaths ... by fang, claw, sharp teeth and venom ... the way the creator proudly exclaimed that the creation was GOOD!

I know you can't see truth when it's an inch from your face but read this:
13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying,“Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”
14 So they said,“Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
15 He said to them,“But who do you say that I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered and said,“You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus answered and said to him,“Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
**Could the rock be the profession that Peter made in verse 16? You think??? Maybe???
**I posted scripture earlier that you ignore stating Jesus is the Rock. " On this rock I will build my church"...hey wait, Christ is the rock and head of the church.
**Won't make sense to you. Satan has blinded you.
Sorry, I read it within an inch of my face. And I still see Jesus Christ giving Peter the keys and not you and OldJG.
So now what to we do? How can we settle this problem.

I think ill read the writings of the first Christians- the disciples of the Apostles to see what they thought. I'll start with Clements first epistle to the Corinthians.... wait a second, who's Clement and why was he writing an epistle to the Corinthians?

hint: He was the successor to Peter and He wrote with authority and the Church @ Corinth obeyed him.

Ok, so which is it:
There is no earthly church, or
all true believers belong to the church.

Or are you implying that the Church doesn't exist yet and will only happen once all the believers are in heaven?

Well, don't you believe in sola scriptura?
What do you make of these verses:

Matthew 18:17
And if he will not hear them: tell the church.

Acts 5:11
And there came great fear upon the whole church,

Acts 7:38
This is he that was in the church in the wilderness,

Acts 8:1
And at that time there was raised a great persecution against the church

Acts 8:3
But Saul made havock of the church, entering in from house to house, and dragging away men and women, committed them to prison.

etc. etc. etc.

Is the church as mentioned in these verses some future entity which exists only in heaven?

I just received my own message from on high (the manure pile) that the creator is in hiding, as it doesn't want any souls created to return home.

I was certain I heard the creator refer to the images created in his invisible mirror as a bickering lot of arrogant little bas-re-tards."

Despite your admonition of referring to oral traditions that are not mentioned in any book of the Bible, the historical facts are that the whole Bible is made up of oral traditions, the majority of which were eventually written down! During the first century of the Church oral tradition is all they had, other than the Old Testament. There was no bible as we know it today! The other fact is that "The bible itself IS TRADITION!!!
As for oral traditions NOT mentioned in Scripture, there are many, such as the Trinity, Apostles Creed, Nicene Creed, Seven Sacraments, Sign of the Cross, Confession and Absolution, etc. and I would also offer the belief that the New Testament is Sacred Scripture and the Word of God is also written tradition!! Certainly, nowhere will you find Jesus ever mentioning anything in Scripture about writing anything down. The only time we see Him associated with writing is when he wrote on the ground when the woman caught in adultery was standing before Him.
Nowhere will you find any of the authors of the New Testament suggesting that they themselves were in fact writing Sacred Scripture! It was the Church (Catholic) that first acknowledged this. It was the Early Church Fathers that compiled and formulated the Canon of Scripture from the manuscripts, parchments,and letters from the Apostles. The historical fact is that "the Church came first--and then the bible, over 350 years after the death of Christ. That is why Paul, in I Timothy 3:15 call "the Church (not the bible alone) as the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH". There are any oral teachings are held dear by all Christians as previously mentioned, including worship on Sunday, instead of the Jewish Tradition which was on Saturday. Sola Scriptura, is an oral teaching that is held only by Protestants that contradicts itself because (NOWHERE) is this taught in Scripture, and was not believed by ANYONE until after the Reformation in the 17th century. Look no further that the conflicting 42,000+(hodge-podge) of inconsistent and contradicting denominations that have surfaced since the Reformation, that "have never, nor will ever" agree on ANYTHING accept attacking the historical and biblically TRUTH of over 2000 years of Jesus Christ and His One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church! There can be "no doubt" that sola scriptura (bible only) is a tradition of man (invented ONLY after the Reformation), which is condemned by Jesus Himself which He no doubt foresaw in this generation, the 21st century!! As you bible only "fundies" continue (as usual) "to make things up" as you go along, Jesus Christs One True Catholic Church, continues to proclaim the TRUTH of the bible and proclaim the TRUE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ as it has for over 2000 years
I won't waste my time reading your post, I have read it a dozen times already.

If you ever wondered about the details of Jesus' Passion, death, and resurrection, you might be interested in this writing:
http://www.jesus-passion.com/DOLOROUS_PASSION...
Also, have you heard of Ron Wyatt and the discoveries he has made? He has a lot of skeptics but also a lot of support. The story of how and where he found the Ark of the Covenant is fascinating. Right under the place of crucifixion in a cave and when the earthquake happened and the rock split, Jesus' blood fell on the Mercy Seat of the Ark.
Wow. Could be true.
Also, he had that blood analysized and he said it only had 23 chromosomes plus one Y chromosome. Something to think about.
Thanks for the link.
Everything I have ever read about Wyatt has been pretty thoroughly debunked.

That is what your religion is about Mr OldG. It does not function unless you use deception to teach it. What's the point of digging up a 17th century writings from a Catholic Priest? And you call Peter a coward?

The love that goes back and forth on this forum about who is saved and who is not saved is indicative of what would occur on other planets if humans have their way.

They won't leave their religions behind. The religions are of too much value in the teaching of "how to make love while fighting."

That's far out man. And I don't believe for a second you actually believe that. I have a hunch you are desperately trying to justify leaving the Catholic Church.
Peter was the rock per the words of Jesus Christ. No verse can undo His exact words, and these words do not cancel out JESUS being the rock as well. The fact that Christ is the rock is too obvious because, well...he's God. duh.
Clay can't you even put that truth together. Only those born again in the spirit of Almighty God are going to enter Heaven.
Being Baptism with the Baptism and fire is from Jesus, water baptism is from John the Baptist.
Which was before Jesus Himself was baptize, and He died on the cross for the remission of sins John the Baptist couldn't forgive us our sins only God can do that.
Jesus did give Peter the keys, but he gave it to all the disciples who were with Him.
And to all who were and are born again.

Jesus said, "I am THE door." The key to that door is FAITH, and everyman is given the same measure of faith. Peter's faith works for Peter, not for the rest of us.

Are you saying that Jesus wants us to *hate* our family?

**********

The Greek word interpreted 'hate' means to 'love less'. This fits perfectly with the first commandment, that we are to love God above everything else.

It would be silly to think that Jesus, Who said that "God SO LOVED the world," would go on to say that we are to hate ANYONE.

So are you saying that Jesus' soul/spirit was seperate from His body? At what point did they reunite?

**********

God is eternal...Mary didn't create Him. No man is a living soul without the Breath of God which God breathed into Adam. God breathed His Spirit into Mary, and Mary's physical body provided that Spirit with a flesh covering.

Your spirit is of God's breath; it is clothed with flesh. Life in man is from God...not from flesh.

Jesus: The same, yesterday, today, forever. Mary did not create Him Who has always been.
