To: Salvation

This is a cute slogan, but it is factually not true. I’ve seen the same slogan on Eastern Orthodox bumper stickers. I can’t think of a single church historian, Catholic or Protestant, that would say that the Roman Catholic Church today is the same as in 33 A.D. First of all, there wasn’t any Roman Catholic Churches in 33 A.D.

I’m sure this will start another discussion upon which denomination is the true denomination. It will be another pissing contest. FR is not an appropriate forum for discussions on theological matters such as these. No one is going to be convinced or persuaded that they are wrong and the other is right. It is simply a forum for people to beat their on chests about why they are what they are.

The mistake you make is calling it the Roman Catholic Church.

The Catholic Church was founded by Christ, circa AD 33.

sure there were...I was Terry 9 months before I was born, I just wasn't referred to by that name. Same with the Catholic church, probably named around 100 AD but nevertheless existant from the time of Christ.
