If you are a real Christian You will believe God's word.

Which is the chronicle of the life death and resurrection of Jesus Christ ..THE SON OF GOD...

Rom 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

Heb_11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him:

for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and

that he is a rewarder of them

that diligently seek him.

Rom_14:23 ,,,, for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.

Gal_3:12 And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them shall live in them.

as far as the SBC, I am not a member of that group, and if members of that group ever came on this forum, you would be kicked out of it very quickly. you use words to some people on here that have a filthy overtone to them, yet NOW you wish to burden me with what the SBC claims.
I stand against ANY person, not just catholics, who bring FOOLISHNESS on this forum, and YOU fall in that category.
You are a fraud....you claim to be a "man called of God"...yet when faced with defending His Word you run behind the barn and hide....

What The Bible Says About the Church
In Matthew 16:18 Jesus promised, "I will build My church." What was Jesus promising to build in this verse? Did He have reference to a building? A denomination? An institution? While these concepts are often designated as the "church" in common parlance, the fact is that none of these definitions accurately picture what Christ meant.
The Church Is People
The Greek word that is usually translated "church" in our English Bibles comes from a Greek word that originally had no inherent religious meaning. Instead, the Greek term EKKLESIA originally referred to a group of people. A good illustration of this meaning is found in Acts 19. While Paul was preaching in Ephesus, a mob formed in opposition to his message. In Acts 19:32 Luke says that the "assembly was in confusion." "Assembly" here is EKKLESIA. Later, in verse 39, the town leader insists that proper charges be brought before the "lawful assembly." Again, "assembly" is EKKLESIA. So the root meaning of the word "church" has to do with a group of people.
Consequently, when Christ promised to "build [His] church," He was pledging to bring together a group of people. Christ loved the church and gave Himself for it (Ephesians 5:25). He did not die for bricks and two-by-fours, or for a cluster of congregations, or for an ecclesiastical machine. He died for people, and those who submit to Him in obedience are brought together into His group of people, the church.
The One Body
Another metaphor that is often used to describe Christ's people is "the body." This term is synonymous with the term "church," as is evident from comparing Ephesians 4:4 and 1:22-23. In 4:4 Paul states, "there is one body." In 1:22-23 he refers to "the church, which is His body." Putting these concepts together, we can conclude that there is one church.
The emphasis of NT teaching on the "one body" is that there is no distinction among Christ's group of people regarding race, gender, nationality, or social standing. Even the centuries old distinction between Jew and Gentile is removed in the one body. "For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups [Jew and Gentile] into one...and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross" (Ephesians 2:14, 16).
In this sense, the one body is equivalent to all those who have trusted in Christ, unlimited by time or geography. We are saved, added to this body, when our faith culminates in baptism. "For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink of one Spirit" (1 Corinthians 12:13).
The one body, then, refers to all those who have truly been born again (John 3:3-5). It describes Christ's people from a universal perspective, all the saved of all time. One more point should be stressed. As portrayed in the Bible, the "one church" is never seen as a collection of churches. It is neither a collection of local churches nor a collection of denominations. It is simply the collection of all individual Christians. "Now you are Christ's body, and individually members of it" (1 Corinthians 12:27). When we think of the "one church," we must make sure our concept is the biblical one. Are you a part of the one body Jesus promised to build?
The word Church is not in the KJV....Christ built His church..

Defined as: a calling out, i.e.(concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):--assembly, church.

Therefore...any....bar none...Christian congregation or an assembly of, is the church Christ built.

Its really Catholic. Its a hierarchy of Bishops, Priests and Deacons much like the Church today. The writings of the early Church are important. They preach nothing like the Christianity you preach. Your Christianity is very foreign. Obviously, Christ understood that you had no idea about His Christianity... You were falsely led to believe it was Jesus, you, and the interpretations of your KJV.
Your intentions might have been noble at one time- perhaps when you thought the CC was the whore of Babylon... but enough is enough. There is no argument against the Catholic Church. They are not the Whore. They didn't kill 50 million people. They didn't prevent the Bible from being read. They don't worship statues. They do not put Mary above Jesus.

Horse thirds....

denomnation: A large group of religious congregations united under a common faith and name and organized under a single administrative and legal hierarchy.

The Roman Catholic church is a denomination of the Christian faith. Christ built not any...none...zilich denominations...He built His church.

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

church: ekklesia, a calling out, i.e.(concretely) a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):--assembly, church.

Therefore...any....bar none...Christian congregation or an assembly of, is the church Christ built.

The NABre poop arroved Catlick bible: Church: this word (Greek ekkl&#275;sia) occurs in the gospels only here and in Mt 18:17 (twice). There are several possibilities for an Aramaic original. Jesusí church means the community that he will gather and that, like a building, will have Peter as its solid foundation. That function of Peter consists in his being witness to Jesus as the Messiah, the Son of the living God.

Therefore...any....bar none...Christian congregation or an assembly of, is the church Christ built

The SBC teaches:
A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Each congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ through democratic processes. In such a congregation each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Its scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.

The New Testament speaks also of the church as the Body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all the ages, believers from every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.

Therefore...any....bar none...Christian congregation or an assembly of, is the church Christ built

The catlick encyclopdia: church: The term church is the name employed in the Teutonic languages to render the Greek ekklesia (ecclesia), the term by which the New Testament writers denote the society founded by Jesus Christ....

Therefore...any....bar none...Christian congregation or an assembly of, is the church Christ built
