Croat //QUOTE/Of course catholics are christians. The catholic church was formed by Jesus and he put the Apostle Peter in charge of it. He was like
the first pope, but the name pope hadnt come into exhistance yet.
not denying that Roman Catholics are Christians!
I quite agree !
BUT.......Why then in REVELATION 20:14(for the world judgement day)....bear all the twelve in the same order?
A high wall surrounds the city as a sign that no one who is unworthy can enter there; the same thought is expressed by the fact that it is guarded at
the twelve gates by a guard of angels of God.
The gates bear the names of the twelve tribes of Israel,
for just as on earth these tribes composed the community of the elect people of God,
so their names comprehend also the heavenly elect - the new Israel.
On the twelve foundations of the wall are written the names of the twelve apostles of the Lord,
as a sign,
that the apostles are the foundation on which the Church is established,
as the founders of the Christian Faith among all the nations of the earth. Here it is impossible not to see a rejection of the false dogma of the
Latins that the Church of Christ is founded on the Apostle Peter alone." (Archbishop Averky)
Being built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,
Christ Jesus Himself being the cornerstone,
in Whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord (Ephesians 2.20-21).
