You gotta be kidding me. Other churches get their power from the RCC? Ho boy!
>>Those "who believe in Christ and have been properly baptized are put in a certain, although imperfect, communion with the Catholic Church.<<
They are sanctimonious Ill give them that! I pity all who put their faith and trust in the RCC.
Yes, pity them! They believe in salvation by works, purgatory, the infallibility of the pope... I remember, as a child, learning side by side the Ten Commandments and the Commandments of the Church. Both were equally important! Add the worship of Mary and the saints (ok, they don’t worship, they just kneel in front of a statue, light candles and pray to it)... As for me, I can say with Paul that I am free from the Law!
