have a skewed idea of what "Catholic" means.
Jim accepts the Catholic Canon but tells you Roman Catholicism is not the true faith.
Whatever is good since John the Baptist is Catholic, while everything else is "Protestant".
Jesus taught not to be called rabbi or father, and not to be the lord over others.
I've shared before, you see in Matthew, Jesus
named Peter leader of the faith, . . .
There is one church in the spirit, and there is one leader, Jesus himself.
. . . there is
one Church, Jesus used the singular in Matthew 16:18.
Back to the old "what does "Catholic" mean...
Avoiding (tactic) commenting on the Truth, the Canon of Scripture was compiled by the Roman Catholic Church which was first decided with his God given
authority by Pope Damasus in 382 A.D.
How many times does this have to be explained Jim? If you look in the written Word, Our Lord Himself
in referring to holy men chosen by God, He and the Apostles in several verses calls them "FATHER."
Abraham your father rejoiced that he might see my day: he saw it, and was glad.
When Our Lord said call "no man father" He was using hyperbole
. Like in Matt 5:30...."cut off your hand."
The Protestant excuse to deny the ONE faith to say Jesus NEVER established a visible Church (singular), it was a "spiritual" Church. LOL if it
weren't sad, Protestantism's flimsy rebuttal. There is no ONE Church in Protestantism, everyone is their own pope. Think about it, a new
Protestant sect is started, every week since Luther split from the faith, October 31, 1517.
Our Lord named Peter (Matt 16:18), it is historical, to be leader of His Church on earth. St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, why did they come up with
