That which some denominations
state to believe is sometimes so silly, it seems the founder, inspired
to found their own church, deemed it necessary to make their church different
from the others, therefore concocting some kind of unique 'Believe'.
But others just accentuate on certain teachings of Jesus Christ.
Take for example the Methodist: they seem to accentuate on welfare and
morals; this is more broadly called 'Believe', like 'Methodist Believe'.
But perhaps the word 'Practice' defines things far better, clearer; avoiding
any misunderstanding of 'different gods'. All churches claim to serve
the same God.
The Catholics are a class
apart and very different: from the start they set out to control people,
conquer the masses, murdering many in the middle ages, even so-called 'priests'
(ministers) ordering the killing of monks who settled in their area
and anyone who opposed them. Today only the killings are missing
as that is no longer tolerated by the law or the people. The question:
would the protestants have done the same things the catholics did back
then, were they in power instead? I say 'yes' for it is in the nature of
rogues (menkind) to behave like this.
I cannot cover every church
on the planet, but know you that the churches here mentioned are existent
and operational in the UK, Europe, the USA and many other countries in
( The Church ) 'The Holy Church of Christ'
Jesus, before he died, send
12 Apostles, and a further 40 people to spread his doctrine, these people
together with all those who believed what they heard became 'The Church',
HERE referred to as 'the first church' - as it was. I avoid
the term 'Early Church', for that one came from this one and was already
somewhat corrupted, while the crooks failed to infiltrate The Church whilest the Apostles still had grip on it: Jesus to the the church of Ephesus:
REV 2: 2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy
patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou
hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast
found them liars: .
Note: 'Holy' means
consecrated, set aside/apart. Believers are consecrated through baptism, thus becoming Christians.
Check the dictionary.
This church is the church
Christ founded and 'the original church', the 'universal church' (if this quote can ever
be used soundly) it was not one church group, but a number of church groups which
were 'one in spirit' (of the same doctyrine, thus 'one church') gathering anywhere, first in houses etc., then they
build meeting places, but it was initially an evangelical church, passing
on the doctrine of Christ through word of mouth to the people, (see
the book of Acts) as many people did not yet read ( God reserved
the bible for later, not just yet ).
The Orthodox Church ( then also
known as 'Universal Church' or 'Catholic Church' but not 'Roman'
From the doctrines of the
first church branched the Early Church and then the Orthodox Church: here
men added doctrines, doctrines not from Christ but contradictory to that
of Christ, and the church took shape: controlling, eager for power, symbolically
fornicating with prayers to Virgin Mary etc. They were also known
as the 'Universal' Church' having churches in the East and in the West.
The western part ( the Latin/Roman) side of the church had a stronger power
base as they were the occupiers of Jerusalem and the Roman empire was huge.
Note: the Universal Church is the true Church of Jesus and not the fake churches using this name.
1045 years after Christ's
death, the east and west finally fell out, the west separated from the
east, and the Roman Church was born. The doctrines of Peter (below)
were long-time lost and this church would now embark on a rampage of fornications
against God. Read
This Roman Church claims
to be the only original church....how false. I just told you about
the church, which is the church of Christ we read about in The Gospel and
in the book of 'Acts': 12 Apostles and 40 other persons chosen off-hand
by Christ him self, send out to preach - 'They were the first church'.
Now, there is no such thing as original church, as it is the word we believe
and follow that makes us one, and so members of 'The Church'; it does not
age or alter and so it is always original.
The Roman Catholic Church
contends that its origin is the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus
Christ in approximately 30 A.D. The Catholic Church proclaims itself to
be the Church that Jesus Christ died for, the Church that was established
and built by the Apostles. Is that really the true origin of the Catholic
Church? On the contrary. One who simply READS the New Testament
will notice that the Catholic Church has not got its origins in the teachings
of Jesus, or His apostles.
New Testament, there is no mention of the papacy, worship / adoration of
Mary (or the immaculate conception of Mary, the perpetual virginity of
Mary, the assumption of Mary, or Mary as co-redemptrix and mediatrix),
petitioning saints in Heaven for their prayers, apostolic succession, the
ordinances of the church functioning as sacraments, infant Baptism, confession
of sin to a man-made priest, purgatory, indulgences, or the equal authority
of church tradition to The Scriptures.
Whenever one makes claims
of original church you know you are dealing with the 'Nicolaitans'
(conquerors of men) they want you, they want to fool you to join them,
to come in their favour, these are not at all Christ's Followers but followers
What the Apostle Peter
thought the Roman congregation:
"Therefore, I exhort the
elders among you as your fellow elder and witness of the sufferings of
Christ, and a partaker also of the glory that is to be revealed, shepherd
the flock of God among you, not under compulsion, but voluntarily,
according to the will of God; and not for sordid gain, but with
eagerness; nor yet as Lording it over those allotted to our charge,
but proving to be examples to the flock" (1 Pet. 5:1-4, emphasis mine).
Lording indeed means what
it does - yet they created a papacy whom, even unto this day, claim supremacy,
over all Christians while in the past they murdered many under compulsion.
Today they continue to deceive millions and are the number one pheadophile
church on the planet.
Not false doctrines
from men, but the doctrine of Christ. Peter never was Bishop of Rome
or first Pope.
