I don't think you understand. You're trying to isolate the Church in Rome. The Roman rite is Catholic and so was the Church in Antioch. Its the same Universal Church. Universal; complete; whole; Catholic.
Here is what the Bishop of Antioch said in the first century: "wherever the Bishop appears, there let the people be; as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church. It is not lawful to Baptize or give communion without the consent of the Bishop, therefore whatever has his approval will be pleasing to God; Thus will be safe and valid"
The title of this thread is a lie. The Vatican never said, "Roman Catholic Church only true Church".
The Roman diocese isn't any more 'truer' than the other Catholic Churches who recognize the Papacy.

in strictness there is no Catholic church, or universal Christian communion.

The epithet is sometimes set in opposition to heretic, sectary or schismatic.

CHURCH..

The collective body of Christians, or of those who profess to believe in Christ, and acknowledge him to be the Savior of mankind. In this sense, the church is sometimes called the Catholic or Universal Church.

WORLD, n.

JESUS SAID

Joh_15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

I could care less what YOU think the Bible says. You are not an authority to tell me what the will of God is. You didn't compile Bible; You didn't hold a council to determine the canon; you didn't label the 72 Books as 'Holy Scripture'; you didn't have your monks hand copy it for 1200 yrs; you didn't print it off the press and show it to the world.

So just answer the question in your own thought. Is Mr Osteen out of line for living lavishly. Two bathrooms for each of his family members when people in the world have to crap in a bucket and dump it in the river??

Hi Clay!! Have looked for you at the Cathedral on various occasions but have unfortunately missed you..... You are correct in saying that the Vatican never said that the Roman Catholic Church is the only true Church.---However, the historical and biblical events of over 2000 years, confirm that it is "in fact" the Only TRUE Church that Jesus HIMSELF formed and initiated--------NOT the only Church---BUT the only TRUE Church!!!
Hope to meet up with you, again, on of these Saturdays, but in the meantime, "keep the TRUTH of the Catholic Christian faith alive" (as I know you will) in front of those bible only fundies who keep denying the TRUTH!!!

Well as you can post yards and yards of words to others ... I suggest it shouldn't take long to explain once again to me what you believe is based on TRUTH.

Please humor me and explain where you believe your spirit will end in its journey.

<quoted text>June,you are on something? I find your post here undeserving of you,you do have intelligence,I know you do.
Now it seems unbemoanst to you,that the Jewish Bible is recorded prophecy for the most part,and it is recored upon record that is passed on to generations,and to whosoever.Since God inspired the Old Covenant text that is of divine quality and substance,He had no intentions of keeping the Old Covenant as a Jewish Only book.Within the many pages of the Old Testament there are prophecies about His Son.
God chose the Jews to be beacons of light,not physical brightness,but spiritual,where they would challenge the gentiles to serve the Living God.You never read that Gentiles from many nations throughout the known world were also followers of the Jewish faith,they could not go to Temple,but often they were received in the Synagogues,at hours where they could be taught the ways of the One True and Living God.
The New Testament is not a Catholic Book,and whether the Catholics on here agree with me or not,they know that every author of the New Testament save LUKE,were Jews,Apostles of the Lord Jesus Christ.There is nothing about the New Testament that is Roman Catholic,Orthodox,or Protestant.It is a book written by the closest followers of Yeshua,to give account of His life,and as the epistles are teachings and guidelines to live the WAY of Christ.
I should say a compiled book of books written by Jews who were called by Jesus Himself to follow Him.Now I could be wrong about Philemon,as he might have been a gentile as well,but I never heard otherwise.
The Catholic conference or Council were responsible in Niceaa,that chose which of the gospels would be inserted,epistles and the Acts of the Apostles by Luke.The Book of Revelation.But they did not author those books,putting a bunch of books together into one BOOK,and calling the BOOK the New Testament may have been a Catholic thing,but that does not mean that the Catholic Church is the author of the same.For that matter the early Catholics most likely put the Old Testament together after the fashion of the early Jews,they definitely did not author that compilation either.
So we are to be thankful for God using them to preserve,protect and put the Books together,and printing them.Much history past around those events.
You come to your own conclusions and you are careless in it!
I stick by what I wrote.

Pad's an idiot. There are no attachment to statues. lol. My parents had a beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary in their garden. It highlighted the whole yard. It depicted her praying with her head slightly tilted. I broke it while playing baseball.... knocked her head right off. oops. We put it in the garbage and the next spring my Mom got another one. True story.
These fundies need to believe we worship those statues. They need to believe allot of things about us..
I may be an idiot,but you are blind as a bat,and not physically but spiritually. People do form attachments to things,and how is it any different when one is devoted to religious articles that supposedly enhance their faith?

Why did your parents go out and buy another statue of Mary? Of course they could not punish you for breaking it,but they could replace it,as it did something for their spiritual lives.

Attachments are dangerous only when the person cannot think clearly about why they have a thing that is dear to them.But I will not be afraid to tell you that God forbade the Hebrews and Jews from having statues in their worship,that represented God,and it holds still today,HE has no changed."BROAD is the way that leads to destruction,and many are on that road,and Narrow is the way that leads to life,few there be that find it." It seems that you Catholics like to go with the flow,that has always been a strong character of RCs all through the ages.

When I was in Southeast Asia,I visited Buddhist,and Hindu temples,the worshipers looked no different than the Catholics who were in their churches glutted with statues,they even sounded the same in their monotonous chants.Ringing bells,and lighting incense,just the same as the Catholics.You can not imagine the similarity until you are actually viewing it.

Only a Catlick can ignore the truth in the dictionary, his own poop approved Bible, the Catlick encyclopeepee. the SBC....Christ built not any denomination/s...

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...zilch 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
