sure it did...the earliest Christians soon (in the first century) became known as Catholic (Universal)...they were therefore present in scriptural times...saved the bible, as you know it, for you....say thanks to the Catholics!!
Maybe you didn't even read Mr. Bresciani's column. He pointed out that the catholic church didn't even come into existence for several hundred years, although, no doubt 1 John 2:19 applies to those who would eventually create catholicism.
It's okay, though, because you and I will never agree. There's nothing we can do to change that.
No, they were catholic, universal.
The capital "c" was added later so some could claim that the only Christians at the time Jesus walked the earth were Catholics, when in fact they were Christians.
say thanks to the Catholics!!
The scriptures come from God, not "Catholics."
Christians thank God, Catholics thank Catholics.
Believe in what you wish, but attempting to change Christians from following God to following a "Pope" (or your misrepresentations lol) is folly.
