Why are you not answering my question.....since you say Christ built His One True church, the Catholic church, who built these churches:
Ac 9:31 Then had the churches rest throughout all Judaea and Galilee and Samaria, and were edified; and walking in the fear of the Lord, and in the comfort of the Holy Ghost, were multiplied.
Ac 15:41 And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches.
Ac 16:5 And so were the churches established in the faith, and increased in number daily.
Ac 19:37 For ye have brought hither these men, which are neither robbers of churches, nor yet blasphemers of your goddess.
Ro 16:4 Who have for my life laid down their own necks: unto whom not only I give thanks, but also all the churches of the Gentiles.
Ro 16:16 Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.
1Co 7:17 ¶ But as God hath distributed to every man, as the Lord hath called every one, so let him walk. And so ordain I in all churches.
1Co 11:16 But if any man seem to be contentious, we have no such custom, neither the churches of God.
1Co 14:33 For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.{confusion: Gr. tumult, or, unquietness}
1Co 14:34 ¶ Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law.
1Co 16:1 ¶ Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye.
1Co 16:19 ¶ The churches of Asia salute you. Aquila and Priscilla salute you much in the Lord, with the church that is in their house.
2Co 8:1 ¶ Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia;
2Co 8:18 And we

Correct.

All of you interpret scriptures to your own "benefits." "I am saved and others are lost." I am pure of thought and others are NOT."
Both Protestants and Catholics make it all about your selves and your own supposed salvations.
You keep pointing fingers outward, rather than admitting that you can only change your own behavior ... and that starts with YOU.
June

Some people do as you say. In fact, most Christians at one time or another have been convinced in their own mind that they are right, and others wrong, scripturally speaking.

You have a good point to make here though, and that one should not be looking outside, but rather internally to "correct" their errors. The brain and heart(mind and passion) take time to master, if not in total then in part. Trial and error.

If I took all my failures and weighed them against my successes, well, the balance scales would be definitely tilted in the failure side, for all to see. But most people don't see.

Extra ecclesiam nulla salus.

846 How are we to understand this affirmation, often repeated by the Church Fathers? Re-formulated positively, it means that all salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body:

Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is the mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church. He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and Baptism, and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through Baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it or to remain in it.

What would you have against Jesus being married, except that it would mean your theologians told a different story???
Keep in mind that John Chrysostom also believed and with his "golden tongue" taught that Jesus wanted the Jews slayed.
Those church fathers were not nice men. They were brutes in god-garbs.
What would you have against me if I told everyone that you were married to four different men,and that in addition that you were on drugs and also running a house of prostitution as well !!!. That would mean also that you would undoubtedly be telling a different story than the one "I made up".------- just like the made up story regarding Jesus Christ being married! This is called "slander" on both sides of the fence!!!!!!). Those 21st century atheists and agnostics are "not very nice people spreading their anti-Catholic slander.

Salvation is of God.

At the moment before death, few know what their confession to be. In my opinion, most seek peace with God.

Its best to get an early start for sinners to confess. It leads to a better life now.

The little posits our brains compose, and the strategies they work out while on earth, may weigh down the truly heroic life of prudence, justice, fortitude and temperance, one might have....

"science experts" are not claiming Jesus had a wife. "science experts" are disputing the age of an ancient papyrus and the text written on it, which contains a supposed statement from Jesus regarding a "wife".
Typical atheist/agnostic response would be to take this and run with it as long as it conflicts with Christian doctrine. Anything to antagonize.
You're in waaay over your head Micheal. Find another hobby, like maybe paying attention to your wife.

Jesus is a popular name in some countries. Just WHICH Jesus might they be talking about ???
Certainly not our Jesus Who HAS A BRIDE...THE CHURCH.
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,

This shows the holy Jerusalem as the bride, the Lamb's wife. What Scripture are you reading that contradicts this???

Acts 12:5 - this verse implies that the "whole Church" offered "earnest prayers" for Peter, their leader, during his imprisonment.

"Falling away" is not a matter of stumbling into a temptation, and doing some foolish thing we shouldn't do. The BIble says that if we confess such to God, "He is faithful and just to forgive us, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (sinful behavior, NOT unbelief)".
Scripture says that "there is a sin unto death". That is the 'sin' of falling away from God, and denying His existence...unbelief

----------
Look closely. "if we confess such to God" is a reference to "some foolish thing"...SIN, not unbelief.
Unbelievers do not confess their unbelief to be sin; they boast about it...

I did not contradict it; I declared it. You must not know of the supposed 'find' of a book written by "Jesus' wife". My point was that some jesus somewhere might have a wife...but the Savior of the world has a wife to whom He is true...the holy Jerusalem.

Jesus knew he would deny Him. He gave him the keys and the authority to bind and loose and built the Church on him anyway.
