In Jesus's own spoken and stated words--HE speaks of HIS CHURCH in Matthew and over 30 times in the New Testament. It has, from the beginning been, HIS ONLY ONE CHURCH and it was universal and it is referred to as Catholic as early as 060 by Ignatius in a documented letter. I never said that the word Catholic was ever mentioned in the bible. There is nothing in the bible that says every word MUST be in the bible in order for it to be true. It is a history book that ended before Polycarp, Ignatius and other Saints of the Church were ever born. History didn't end with the bible. You bible only "fundies" have made up your own "modernistic rules" for your so-called "Christian History" which is nothing but a 21st century "myth"!! NOWHERE is the word bible in the bible either!!<quoted text>show me where this is said in the bible? "spoken and stated words" in the gospel of Matthew 16:13-21 regarding His One True (universal-Catholic) Church....remember you are saying "spoken and stated word" show me these words where he is calling the catholic church his church?..if you can't shutup,tired of hearing your lies,you have not even one historical "word" that comes close to suggesting the pagan/christian church is jesus's church.
Sorry, Jethro8 that you have so much trouble "swallowing the TRUTH". Take it with a glass of water and a TRUE CHURCH HISTORY BOOK and it will "go down easier'!!!
