Jesus Christ One (and only one TRUE Church has been "filled to the brim" for over 2000 years with the FULLNESS of the FAITH and the FULLNESS of the TRUTH....It is you Protestant "bible only fundies" that are CONTINUOUSLY emptying it, by "making up your own truth" (or better yet concocting your own--"relative truth" ---what each person decides "for themselves" is their OWN truth!!---(all 42,000 of you contradicting and inconsistent bible only buffoons!!!! The TRUTH of the TRUE GOSPEL of Jesus Christ, has, is and will always be grounded in Jesus Christ HIMSELF maninfested in and through His One True Catholic Church......You bible only Protestants are a "repeat story" of the Prodigal son in Luke 15:11 ALWAYS on the outside, ALWAYS looking in at the FULLNESS of the TRUTH and the FAITH in Jesus Christs One True Church!!!
You are saying the English dictionary is lying, your poop is a liar, your catlick encyclopee is lying, the SBC is lying, Strong's lexicon is lying..

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. Jesus’ 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

A virgin forever was not Mary!!!!

This theory of Mary’s “perpetual virginity” became official dogma at the Council of Chalcedon in A.D. 451, and thus is binding upon both the Greek and Roman segments of the Church (Pelikan, 14.1000).
The Historical Roots of the Dogma

What is the biblical evidence for this dogma? There is none —absolutely none. As one scholar quaintly noted, the doctrine “is a matter of dogmatic assumption unmixed with any alloy of factual evidence”(Sweet, 3.2003).

The theory had its roots in the pagan environment of the post-apostolic age when there was a strong emphasis upon celibacy within certain heathen religions. In that day, sexual intercourse, even within marriage, sometimes carried the suspicion of sin.

Alexander Hislop has shown a remarkable concurrence between the Vestal Virgins of pagan Rome, and the propensity for virginity that evolved in the digressive church of the post-apostolic period (Hislop, 223, 236-238, 250).

The idea thus evolved that it was inconceivable that Mary should have engaged in normal marital relations.

It is a baffling mystery how a Church, that holds marriage to be a “sacrament,” can entertain such a misdirected viewpoint (see Heb. 13:4).

Ya ... but unless you preach at me you are not following the gospel that you must preach and tell me straight out that if I don't become a Christian in your image ... god won't love me.
It's your duty to convert others so you will in turn receive brownie points in heaven from the god that loves ONLY Christians.

It's about love June, how could anyone not share with another a True Pure Love available for All.

I'm trying to help you comprehend that the reason you don't believe that other religions are based on truth, is the same reason I don't believe your religion is based on truth.
Have you really tested all the spirits? I incouraged my oldest son to study all the religions as he had questions, Thank God he realized it was all about a relationship with God and total belief in Him was what was True and not religion.

Can you imagine a relationship with God the Creator of the world and everything in it!

Just curious...what means of communication did God use when He called you???

Was it by a loud voice or did He use the telephone?? If by telephone, was it on a land line or was it wireless. Was it by short wave radio??? By walkie-talkie??? Did He use drums like the natives do in Attica??? Smoke signals????

YES!!! Christ built a Church----(one Universal Church)-----a heirarchical, authoritative, visible Church with Bishops, priests, elders and deacons ----ALL revealed in Acts 2......And..it was Catholic (which means Universal)-----confirmed, authenticated and substantiated for over 2000 years in TRUE Church History. EVERY ONE of Jesus Christs original Churches that HIS Apostles established were heirarchical, authoritative and visible (each Church beginning with Antioch, then Corinth, Galatia, Ephesus,Colossus, Thessalonica ALL were headed by an Apostle which were appointed as Bishops (overseers) to lead each Church.----again confirmed, authenticated and substantiated for over 2000 years in TRUE Church History.
The Reformation (and Luther) who created (man-made)denominations ---(now over 42,000+(conflicting) bible only (contradicting) hodge-podge of Protestant (inconsistent confusion-- as of today..

JESUS established One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic (Universal-Catholic) Church in Matthew 16:13-21. MEN established denominations in the 16th century starting with Luther, then Zwingli, Wycliff, Hus, Calvin, Knox, Tyndale, Beza, Capito, Cranmer, Flacius and on and on and on reaching 42,000+ today with Confrinting, Orville, 4GVN, JustaChristian, Jethro8, including YOU Ox----all just one big "Mish-mashed (Mess) of just more confusion, more chaos and more contradicting bible only (self-interpreting popes--who have never, NOR WILL EVER agree on ANYTHING accept attacking THE (historical and biblical PROVEN TRUTH of Jesus Christ and His One (and only one) TRUE Apostolic Catholic Church---which is the ONLY basis of Protestantism and their bible only teaching!!!!!!!!

Well, as (according to your theology) there is only one god ... how can you trust that the god that used to favor ONLY the Jews, is not at this moment favoring the Muslims and lying to you???

This god-business is a very tricky issue.

And added to the "problem" is that (again according to the words of the theologians which is where you place your faith) the god created evil.

You might believe there is one good inspiring your thoughts and leading you to bliss in a hereafter ... but I suggest that illusions seem real to all people who entertain their own preferential illusions.
