If it is so trite and tiring, why do you respond? Quoting James is good, I believe it too. But Christ alone is sufficient for me, you can bow to Rome, but I believe Jesus is King of Jerusalem...

At that moment I had nothing better to do.

Quoting James is good, I believe it too.

Glad to hear it.

Rome is where the Successor of Peter is, the King's Steward with the keys of the Kingdom entrusted to the lowly man there by the King himself. The King is the King, but the man in Rome holds the keys that open the door. That's the King's wish.

If you wish to enter (New) Jerusalem, you must engage the King's Stewart.

Not my words but His (Matthew 18:28).

In the Church, "sufficiency" is really a sharing.

Better hit those books again.
