This was previously posted within another thread. I think it deserves its own thread.

When I made the decision to convert, this was one of my prime reasons. It is THE Church of Christ.
“If you are Catholic, you know that your religion was founded in the year 33 by Jesus Christ the Son of God, and it is still the same Church.”
Ummm...you DO realize that only Roman Catholics accept that last statement as true?
It is not accurate. All Christian churches trace their founding to 33AD.
How old is the Jewish religion?
When I converted from Southern Baptist to Catholic, it was because I found a home there. I go to Church to be renewed not beaten down. I felt God there.
I also found this statement on another website:
If you are Jewish, Abraham became the first Jew when God promised him: “I will make you a great nation...”. Your religion was founded by God in the Jewish calendar year 2049 (1711 BC), over 3700 years ago. God revealed Himself to the Jews through the Prophets and promised to send a Messiah. Jesus Christ, a Jew from the House of David, came to this world as His only begotten Son in fulfilment of the scriptures.
Baptists are much older. Baptists organized in England around that time, but to say that is when they started is simply historically inaccurate.
While some quotes purporting to support the above statement may not be supportable, there are other quotes that indicate adult baptizers (because Baptists are distinctive in requiring people first be BELIEVERS before they are baptized) existed to the days of the apostles.
Look at the facts. These are REAL dates. Founders of other denominations changed things from the original Catholic Church.
The One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.
I'm a Methodist, but John Wesley didn't die for my sins. Christ did.
I am part Jewish which is about 2.5 times older than Christianity..so your point here? If we are going to make a ridiculous arguments about age of faith systems and validity, well the pagans have it all over any of the monotheistic religions about 60 centuries old. Islam is what 1300 years old? This thread is retarded and sad that some Catholic apologists have to resort to specious and vapid sophomoric arguments.
Find the dates.....this is a fact thread!
My religion is better than your religion Thread Ping!
I think I covered your thoughts.
Did you see this post?
All true. Time to read “Trail of Blood” again.
Glad to know my salvation is based on my relationship with Christ, not membership in a particular church.
And what is the Eastern Orthodox Church which was founded at least contemporaneously, if not earlier, than the Roman Church ?
