Ecumenical thread................antagonism towards other professions not permitted.
The Acts of the Apostles (New Testament), especially chapters 1 - 15.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church covers this topic in a large section on the Church. See especially sections 748-769, 811-812, and 857-896.
There is an excellent and accessible discussion of this issue in Leo Trese's book, The Faith Explained. (This topic is addressed throughout the two chapters about the Church.)
The article "Church: Nature, Origin, and Structure of" in Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopedia of Catholic Doctrine is another good, though brief, treatment of the subject.
The Second Vatican Council addressed this in Chapter III of its 1964 document Dogmatic Constitution on the Church (also known by its Latin title, "Lumen Gentium"). You can get a hardcopy book of the Vatican II documents, or you can read it online on the Vatican website.
This is 100% Correct! I just Don’t get how a Man made or a self made Religion could Ignore Christ Church he founded and will never let Fail! always a myriad of relative excuses of why Jesus Christ Church is wrong!!

>Ecumenical thread................antagonism towards other professions not permitted.
>Why do Protestants reject this claim?
Do you not think that this right here breaks the rules for Ecumenical posts, as well as your own statement on the end?
I think you might wish to remove that tag or else no one can answer the false claims that are in the article about the Protestant rejection of the authority of Rome.
Bump for later reading.
Yeah, good luck with that.
