The word "church" is the word "ekklesia ", which is not a code reference to the CC. Matter of fact, do a word search in the Bible for "the church" or "the churches", and you will see it is not always referenced to the CC. But I hear what you are saying... in a Christian sense an assembly of Christians gathered for worship in a religious meeting a company of Christian, or of those who, hoping for eternal salvation through Jesus Christ, observe their own religious rites, hold their own religious meetings, and manage their own affairs, according to regulations prescribed for the body for order's sake those who anywhere, in a city, village, constitute such a company and are united into one body the whole body of Christians scattered throughout the earth the assembly of faithful Christians already dead and received into heaven http://www.biblest udytools.com/lexic ons/greek/nas/ekkl esia.html  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #466118)

Again, pick one verse at a time, and we will see how strong your position stands. My position, is, that at the moment of belief >>in the Savior(to pay for the penalty of my sins)<< eternal life is received.  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #466116)

They still believe salvation comes through their church(as Jesus being the true Head), however, the way they word it now, is a little different, such as "no fault of their own"(or something like that). In other words, though if you don't recognize salvation comes through their church, you still can be saved, even if it is in ignorance.  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #466102)

I believe, Scripture is the inerrant word of God. Just because you have a hard time reconciling verses, doesn't mean it's my problem, nope, it's your problem.  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #466091)

I gave a "article ", that gives a break down on Mt 25, not just a verse. Where is your break down?  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #466089)

They don't see Vatican I and Vatican II, as differing from one another, but of development, which to me, is just a cop-out imho. http://en.wikipedi a.org/wiki/Develop ment_of_doctrine  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #466085)

I can give a line of verses, to the contrary. So, if you want to take one verse at a time, which one of these would you like to pick? Keep in mind, salvation does not always equate a heaven/hell scenario. Ever hear of temporal deliverance? Try looking up sozo and soteria. These words have more than one use in meaning.  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #466080)

Clay, with all due respect, I challenge your church authority in its singular sense, against all other churches. I challenge you both theologically, and even within using the patristics, even your own church historians/theologians. Are you up for that? For starters, where would you point to, to establish authority, aside from Scripture?  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #466078)

If you want to answer me directly, fine, but I value my time and will not be going back to read v.46, because you may understand that verse differently than me, which is why I want you to be direct with me. I agree, God is love, but we, though we have God, does not mean we automatically "express " love to one another, though God wants us to do so.  (Jul 26, 2013 | post #466077)
