Scripture points to the Catholic Church.

    Consider the implications of the idea that a true church can only be identified

    by its lineage of bishops that can be traced back to Peter.

    Who said that?

    Scripture points to the Catholic Church.

    First, Jesus Christ appointed a Pastor as head of the entire Church:
    John 21:17
    He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep.

    I see only a few Churches with such a Pastor. Further, Jesus Christ said that the Pastor over His Church would be infallible:

    Matthew 16:17-19 (King James Version)
    17And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven.18And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    The list of Churches accept this teaching gets smaller. Certainly, all Protestant denominations can now be eliminated.

    Jesus Christ not only said that the Pastor was infallible but Scripture describes the Church as infallible:
    Ephesians 3:10
    To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,

    The list remains the same, but now I can certainly eliminate all Protestant denominations.

    Back to Matt 16:18, Scripture says that Jesus Christ established one Church. History shows that all the Churches sprang from the Church which is frequently described as the Mother Church. The Catholic Church.

    No other Church is described in Scripture.

    Sincerely,

    De Maria

    I see the “selective exegicists” are back again 🙂

    I’m having trouble with someone who has posted a video on youtube that claims “Satan was installed as the god for the Catholic Church” during the beatification of two recent Saints. They are claiming that the word “lucifer” that is sung during the chant is referencing the devil. But the idiot doesn’t understand that is is calling Christ “a bright morning star”.

    People want to love and embrace their hate but then want to hate the truth.

        Agree! I once was like this but something changed. I decided to read things myself and keep an open mind as to what it was I was reading. Sometimes, the more defensive you become the worse it makes the situation. But the willful ignorance some display is just beyond belief.
