Jesus Christ Established a Visible Church On Earth

Every Christian believes that Jesus Christ established and sustains a community of faith, hope and love for all believers. This community we call His Church. The Church that Christ founded is the Catholic Church which has a formal earthly structure established by Christ and which continues under His authority and protection.
In the Old Testament we see God's continual involvement in the lives of the Israelites through appointed prophets. God delivered, instructed and admonished the Israelites. He made His motions in a visible, specific and formal way. He always did so through human hands, mouths, feet, minds and wills. God established a law and a means for executing it.
In concert with His redemptive act, Jesus did THREE things that established the framework of HIS Church. FIRST, He chose humans to carry out His work. He appointed Peter to be the visible head of the Church. Jesus said to Peter, "You are Rock and on this rock I will build my Church." (Matthew 16: 18) Jesus said "build," as in to create a structure. Jesus built His structure on specifically chosen human beings Peter and the apostles.
SECOND, Jesus gave Peter and the apostles the power and authority to carry out His work. "Whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven."(Matthew 16:19; 18:18) "Receive the Holy Spirit, whose sins you forgive, they are forgiven, whose sins you retain, they are retained."(John 20:23)
THIRD Jesus gave Peter and the apostles commands as to what that work should be. At the last supper, He commanded, "Do this in memory of Me." (Luke 22:19) He commanded them to "Make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19), and to "Go into the whole world and proclaim the Gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)
The early Church was structured in a hierarchical and authoritative manner as it is today. We see in Acts, chapter 15 how the apostles and the priests elders and deacons all came together under the leadership of St. Peter to decide the question of what was required of Gentiles. We also see how St. Peter was regarded as the head of the Church when St. Paul, "Went up to Jerusalem to confer with Kephas [Peter] and remained with him fifteen days." (Galatians 1:18) There is no Scriptural evidence of independent local churches.
The Catholic Church is the only church that can claim to have been founded by Christ personally. Every other church traces its lineage back to a mere human person such as Martin Luther or John Wesley. The Catholic Church can trace its lineage back to Jesus Christ who appointed St. Peter as the first pope. This line of popes has continued unbroken for almost 2,000 years.
God rules, instructs and sanctifies His people through His Church. Under her teaching office, the Catholic Church preserves the Word of God. She is the custodian, keeper, dispenser and interpreter of the TRUTH of teachings of Christ. I Timothy 3:15 The CHURCH (not the bible alone) is the pinnacle, pillar and foundation of the TRUTH and Jesus Christs Catholic Church accomplishes this under the protection of the Holy Spirit.

I could take the time to look up your absurdity, but as I recall you say that the church was the bride of Christ...that makes one...
The Bible teaches His bride is the New Jerusalem...that makes two..
bride:a woman who has just been or is about to be married
Two brides...one groom equals bigamy....
----------
I'm sure glad that you explained your thoughts on that!
Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, EVEN AS CHRIST IS HEAD OF THE CHURCH: and he is the saviour of the body.
Eph 5:24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.
Eph 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, EVEN AS CHRIST ALSO LOVED THE CHURCH, and gave himself for it;
Eph 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,
Eph 5:27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
Eph 5:28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loves his wife loveth himself.
Eph 5:29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourishes and cherishes it, EVEN AS THE LORD THE CHURCH:
Eph 5:30 For WE ARE MEMBERS OF HIS BODY, OF HIS FLESH AND OF HIS BONES.(GEN. 2:23)
Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Eph 5:32 This is A GREAT MYSTERY: but I speak concerning CHRIST AND THE CHURCH.
Rev 19:5 And a voice came out of the throne, saying, Praise our God, all ye his servants, and ye that fear him, both small and great.
Rev 19:6 And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reignes.
Rev 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honor to him: for THE MARRIAGE OF THE LAMB IS COME, and his wife hath made herself ready.
Rev 19:8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: FOR THE FINE LINEN IS THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF THE SAINTS (CHURCH).
Rev 19:9 And he said unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are coice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
The Church IS the New Jerusalem, the Bride of Christ. A great mystery, yes. What? Don't you know that YOU are the temple of the Holy Ghost? There is ONE Bride.
We will understand it better by and by...
KayMarie
You have nothing but your ego and pride to erroneously maintain your absurdity...you are saying that your Bible is fallible...it teaches opposite of the KJV!!!!!!!!

Scripture:
And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb's wife.
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

Jerusalem: the capitol of Palestine:--Jerusalem.

Per the English dictionary:
Jerusalem A city divided between east-central Israel and the Israeli-occupied West Bank. Jerusalem was founded as far back as the fourth millennium b.c. and was ruled by the Canaanites, Hebrews, Greeks, Romans, Persians, Arabs, Crusaders, Turks, and British before being divided in 1949 into eastern and western sectors under Israeli and Jordanian control. In 1967, Israeli forces captured the eastern sector from Jordan, later declaring the city as a whole to be the capital of Israel. The legal status of Jerusalem, considered a holy city to Jews, Muslims, and Christians, remains fiercely disputed. Population: 729,000.

IF SOMEONE SAYS PRAYING TO MARY IS NOT IN THE BIBLE;
They must be reading comic books for Bibles.........
HAIL MARY FULL OF GRACE THE LORD IS WITH YOU
Luke 1:28 "And coming to her, he said, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you."
BLESSED ART THOU AMONGST WOMAN
Luke 1:41-42a "When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, "Most blessed are you among women..."
Luke 1:48 "For he has looked upon his handmaid's lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed."
BLESSED IS THE FRUIT OF YOUR WOMB JESUS
Luke 1:42b "and blessed is the fruit of your womb."
Jesus is Mary's fruit. Good fruit does not come from anything but a good tree (Mt. 7:17-18)! The all-holy Son of God could not be the fruit of any other tree than the Immaculate Virgin.
HOLY MARY MOTHER OF GOD
Luke 1:43 "And how does this happen to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?
PRAY FOR US SINNERS NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH AMEN
Luke 2:35 "...and you yourself a sword will pierce so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed."
John 2:5 "His mother said to the servers, "Do whatever he tells you."
Mary sees a need and appeals to Her Son to satisfy it. He does. We turn to Mary to ask her to intercede with her Son in our daily spiritual and material needs, but especially at the hour of our death. At that moment our salvation hangs in the balance as the devil makes his final foray to deter us from the path to God (Rev. 2:10). It is not surprising, therefore, that both the Hail Mary and the Our Father conclude with an appeal to be delivered from the evil one.
So next time someone asks you why you pray to Mary ask them why don't they pray to Mary?
You said, quote, "HAIL MARY FULL OF GRACE THE LORD IS WITH YOU
Luke 1:28 "And coming to her, he said, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you." End quote.

Luke 1:28, "And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women." KJV

You call this a prayer? You are completely nuts. Actually your translation is incorrect as well. The angel NEVER calls Mary "full of grace". It may appear in your Douay-Rheims Roman Catholic Bible translated from the Latin Vulgate but not from a Bible translated from the original Greek.

You said, quote, "BLESSED ART THOU AMONGST WOMAN
Luke 1:41-42a "When Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the infant leaped in her womb, and Elizabeth, filled with the holy Spirit, cried out in a loud voice and said, "Most blessed are you among women..."

Luke 1:41-42, "And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: 42 And she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb." KJV

You said, quote, "Luke 1:48 "For he has looked upon his handmaid's lowliness; behold, from now on will all ages call me blessed."

Luke 1:48, "For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed." KJV

You said, quote, "PRAY FOR US SINNERS NOW AND AT THE HOUR OF OUR DEATH AMEN
Luke 2:35 "...and you yourself a sword will pierce so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed."
John 2:5 "His mother said to the servers, "Do whatever he tells you."

Luke 2:35, "(Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.
John 2:5, "His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it."

John 2:4, "Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come."

Woman? Why not mother? Jesus corrected her.

This Mary, the perfect mother who left her son in the temple with strangers and completely forgot where he was. That Mary!!! You pray to her? If she forgot him she forgot you.

If it was true then Jesus would have made it perfectly clear in the Gospels.

What makes you think that He was referring to Jasher? He said,'scriptures'...not 'Jasher'. It might not even have been available to them.
HE said that the Holy Ghost would bring to their remembrance the things that He told them. So the Holy Ghost can also bring to our remembrance what He wishes us to know.

I don't think it's any of your business what I say to the cowboy.
I could care less what you think about the "word" of any god.
YOU certainly don't posit a very good example of crister behavior, so it would be in your best interest if you didn't defame others in lieu of your own "log on the eye" hypocrisy.

I said once before that if people don't really comprehend accurately the first 6 chapters of Genesis then there will be no way they can accurately comprehend the rest of the scriptures.
