No outrage equals a double standard!

(so-called reformation)

That’s called rebellion not reformation!
No authority to start new churches Matt 16:18 only Christ has this authority
He is the only mediator!

Where is your outrage on this gross attempt to usurp His authority, the authority of him being the only mediator?????????

Where’s the biblical mandate for a reformation
Christ founded the one true church and it cannot be reformed

divine revelation is from God and is immutable cannot be reformed

it is the truth!

what authority did the so-called reformers have?

They admit that they have no authority themselves for they say the Bible is the only authority!

they have no authority to say that the Bible is the only authority, but in saying it they admit freely that they have no authority, only the apostles have authority!

Keys of authority! And power to bind and loose! Matt 16:18 and Matt 18:18

Moral authority:
(Teaching)
Necessity of being taught by Christ:
Two edge sword: defining truth and condemning errors, and Interpreting scripture.

Jurisdictional authority:
(Governing / administering)
Necessity of Peter and the apostles and their successors to govern the holy church.

Spiritual authority:
(Life of Grace)
Sanctifying thru the mass and Sacraments

To admit belief in the reformation is to admit that the Catholic Church is the one true church of Jesus Christ founded on Peter, the apostles, and their successors!
Matt 16:18 Jn 10:16

Again where is the outrage against these interlopers!

The Bible shows there is one body (church) and one faith, Eph 4:4-5. Paul reminded the Corinthians he espoused them to ONE husband Jesus Christ, 2 Cor 11:2. And that one husband Jesus Christ has ONE bride the church of the NT, the body of Christ, Eph 5:23. Christ is not a spiritual adulterer, He is not a spiritual polygamist with thousands of brides that go by thousands of contradicting faiths.

The NT gives a history through the first century of that one body and the one faith it followed. Having read the NT many many times myself, I see nothing in the NT that resembles Protestant denominationalism, just as as see nothing in that NT that remotely resembles Catholicism. Reason being Cathlocism came into existence centuries after Acts 2 by apostates who did not remain fauthful to that one faith found in the NT. Very odd Catholicism cannot even be found in the NT at all if it were that one church of the NT. In reality, Catholicism is nothing more than a man made denomination itself, older than most, but follows man-made teachings not found in the NT as other denominations do.


I've debated with Catholics over the years and found thay are unable to defend Catholic tradition from the Bible alone, they need Catholic tradition to 'prove' their teachings and are trapped in a vicious circle.....where did Catholic tradition come from? Catholicism. Where did Catholicism come from? Catholic tradition. But where did Catholic tradition come from? Catholicism. But where did Catholicism come from? Catholic tradition....and on and on.


Catholicism/Catholic tradition developed from itself with no connection to the NT, it's an invention of man-made ideas with no Divine authority behind it, in other words, it is no different from other man-made denominations.

The Catholic Church is not the one true church of Jesus Christ founded on Peter, the apostles, and their successors!

a) There is no mention of the Catholic church in Scripture. It is a made up term.
b) The Orthodox church can make the same claim, with just as much (or as little) validity.
c) The first church was composed entirely of Jews. Jews are not Catholics!
d) Peter was called "Satan" by Jesus. He also called a stumbling block, and he denied Jesus three times.

Matthew 16:21-23, "From that time on, Jesus began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem and undergo great suffering at the hands of the elders and chief priests and scribes and be killed and on the third day be raised. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, “God forbid it, Lord! This must never happen to you.” But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me, for you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things.”

The one true church is the body of Jesus Christ. All Christians, not just one denomination.

When are you going to stop writing this stuff???
