Yes!! Jesus Christ established, intitiated and built "One True Church" and in was (Universal and it was Catholic. "EVERY ONE" of the Churches beginning with the 1st Church at Antioch (then Corinth,Galatia,Ephesis,Philli pi,Colossus, Thessalonica (were appointed by Jesus Christ himself) led, guided, built and directed by the Apostles of Jesus as His Bishops, Priests, Elders and Deacons (Acts 2) and ALL that followed throughout 2000 years of True, authenticated and proven Church History ----and---they were (ALL) One---Universal ---Catholic Church --"visible, heirarchical and authoritative" again Acts 2 and referred to over 30 times in the New Testament! Paul confirms, validates, verifies and assertains (this to be true) in I Timothy 3:15, when he call The Church (not the bible) as the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH.....and (only one Truth)--not 42,100 contradicting, inconsistent and conflicting bible only Protestant (man-made) truths! And that TRUTH has, is and will (always) be grounded, established and solidified in Jesus Christ Himself, in and through His One (and only one) True Apostolic Catholic Church.
Oh, Your back!....... Darn.
Are you claiming god is not in their hearts and in their churches? Are you claiming you are more worthy to god than protestants are?
You need to focus on your own church that can't keep up with police investigations.

That is a far cry from the Protestant who picks up a bible or goes online and gets a certification that he is now a minister able to divide the Word Correctly. There can be no false teachers with that model of anarchy.

If it were all that simple then Jesus would have given them a completed book and told them to pass it out and they could all individually decipher the true meaning on their own and there really isnt any need for any preacher at all. There are no false teachers its whatever Jesus tells them individually. Some have ,made Jn 3:16 all that is necessary. Each person incorporates their own values into that which they choose to believe. It is not unlike the Atheist who becomes a moralist in an immoral world. Al Capone or other Mob bosses would argue that they provide a good and a service and it is perfectly justifiable to murder someone if they cheat those who are cheating everyone else. Collateral damage is par for the course.

The bible doesn;t say alot of things. There were always judges and a source of authority. Whenever 2 or more are gathered is an old Jewish saying or iditom and inferred 2 or more people with reconginzed authority who call upon the Lord for a decision. As an example you could use the casting of lots to determine who to chose to replace Judas. It wasnt just 2 neophytes or false teachers with no basis authority other than a self proclamation. I have used Charles Manson and Jim Jones lets throw in Peter Popov another Charlaton. Ok here are 3 people for real that proclaim they are ministers. Which of these is the real deal? Again the book of Hebrews does not say obey what you are inclined to believe the book says. There was always an authority. Judas gives us the first example of betrayal and and first hand account that there will be more. The Old Testament is rife with rebellion and hypocrisy. Those in charge will not always practice what they preach. The church and leaders sometimes need rebuke, but the answer is not to just run down the street and start your own, because there will always be rebellion, wrong acts committed and betrayal. Correction is what is needed. The Church is not divided along ethnic lines. The council at Jersusalem nor those that followed did not ask for the approval of the lay community. The Apostles AND Priests met and conversed and made a decision. It is not the place for each individual to become an authority. There is no possible way to ever have unity with that model. How long do you think a business would function if everyone was the ceo with equal authority? Its insanity!

The Church is the ground and Pillar of the truth. He who hears you hears me. He who does not hear you does not hear me. If you cannot come to peace with someone who has committed a wrong then you go to the church and it will decide. Will there be those like King David who abused his authority? WIll be there be those who need rebuke as Peter himself did and Popes have been by Saints? Yes Did Moses get rebuked? Yes Did that mean they no longer had any authority? Peter calls himself a fellow presybyter or priest. So from that we are to infer an Apostle had no more weight than some layman? Really? Bishops are Piests,

thank you Preston, Pastor James Kennedy; is a senior pastor, we do have communion at home church or did. It is no more I really miss it.
Nancy the head of our worship team at church and a very dear friend passed away a few years back from cancer.
Things change, and I know change is a good thing; I don't do well will it.
I don't go to church any more or go to home church ; Nancy's husband didn't continue with it after she died.
I have been praying for God to lead me to a Spirit filled God fearing group, were all the gifts of the spirit are operating.as well as all the fruits.
I am really missing the fellowship with my brothers and sister's. in Christ.

AnthonyMN, being demolished by a Roman Catholic would be impossible. I have yet to meet ONE with an open mind to Biblical truth. When a Roman Catholic does open their mind to Biblical truth they become a ..........PROTESTANT.
AnthonyMN said, quote, "I'm not defending any guilty priest at all. The perps should be in prison. Many are." End quote.
You are a liar. You defend them. How? With the money you donate to the Roman Catholic church. They in turn use your money to hire lawyers to get the perverted priests off the hook. When you give money to Rome you are as guilty as the perverts your money helps defend.

You got it right...His church is focused on HIM...not a big show.
I heard a nice young preacher speak on this. He warned against the temptation to pride when people applauded him. He likened it to the donkey carrying Jesus into Jerusalem. He said that the donkey must realize that "It is ALL ABOUT JESUS"...not himself.

There are a lot of proud donkeys in this world...

Well the priests, Bishops have the Body ,Blood ,Soul and Divinity, the Eucharist , rose. The Eucharist. You can't receive Christ without the priest, rose. The nuns taught you that, rose.

LTM's home gatherings are not "church", there is no Eucharist, no priest, no sacrifice. I'm sure they have a nice time reading and studying the bible, but it's bible-study, not "church".

Wrong again Anthony. Jesus said, "Wherever two or more of you are gathered together, "THERE AM I."
HE is our priest, our sacrifice, and, since HE is present, we share communion WITH HIM. THAT is church!
