2000 years in one form or another is more than something. The RCC is well organized and successful in many ways for sure. I'd say helping to shape civilizations is more than "something."<quoted text>
That's it. That's all He said.
The Church has been around doing it for 2000 years. I don't know if one would call that a measurement of "success" or not, but it's something.
I'f spreading the message is why Jesus appointed the CC, what is the purpose of the clergy?
Sounds more like Evangelism to me, sorry.
So why aren't you out spreading the message, like some other Christians for their denomination?
I've had 7 dayers, mormons, and who knows what, but in my many decades on earth, I have never had a Catholic come to my door spreading the message. Have you?
