There are many teachings in the scriptures about "inclusion" and not "exclusion". In today's sense, the parable of the Good Samaritan was a parable of the Good-Catholic or the Good-Evangelist or the Good-Sombody-Not-Like-me. The parable was not originally given to Samaritans.

Revelation 3:15 says "I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!" Hot and cold are not similar to each other, but the words imply both are acceptable.

Romans 14:4 says "Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls.".

Christian Churches are true in they have CHRIST AS THIE HEAD AND FOUNDATION.

Churches are false if they have people as their head and are founded on religous traditions, religous rituals, ect,etc.

Starting with the first rcc pope Is the start of The Man - made trin relig - org's churches, then her offspring churches came later on, 2nd.Cor.11 v's 14 - 15 devised these False churches. This was aft when the devil & the roman leaders with nereo & the crusades went to kill off The Early Church Saints.

A remnant of The Early Church Acts 2 v 38, still lives today. Thank God for Jesus name & Truths sake.

I don't answer to the Pope. I answer to God. He says the true church is full of those born again into His family. Jesus is the "way, the truth and the life." The only way to the Father is through Him. The Pope or any other priest can't get us to Heaven.

All denominations see others as false to some extent. I bet everyone posted here feels that some other group is false, so you are just like the Pope.

ERmcee I beleive that the church of Christ is His people.
It is sad that there are denominations that are bitterly opposed to each other, when in truth they are united by much more than what which divides them.
I don't claim my own has the whole truth ... I need not say more.
---alan_of_UK on 7/29/07

The pope is clearly clueless, but thats not new. God has no bounds and can not be contained within the walls of a single church. God is present everywhere and to everyone. Most just don't notice. The god I know doesn't care about what church I belong to. He cares about what is in my soul.
---Jeff on 7/26/07

Its a good thing God doesn't judge us by how smart we are or if we have the correct doctrine. Every denomination would be considered a false church by those standards. The Pope causing so much division in the body of Christ - judge for yourself. People were saved before the "church" yes we should belong and attend, but it is not a requirement for salvation and any church that adds this is probably false.
---Andrea on 7/25/07

GASP! A Church that claims it is the True Church??? SAY IT AIN'T SO!!!!!
---Marshall on 7/25/07

I believe that churches have entertained false doctrines of many different kinds. However, the Catholic church has done so as well. In addition, the Catholic church has committed atosoties against God too many to list here. God help the churches and members who do not recognize lies they are taught which lead them astray. This is the Apostacy. The remnant is not in the church.

Lets stop with all the nonsense. What's a true church? The True Church is the People Of GOD.

Let's see if I understand this right. The Pope is making statements about other churches while his own church (of which he is supposed to be the head) is paying out millions to the sexually abused people.

Let see, the Popie announces that Christian churches are false. The Christian church is the body of Christ and Christ is its head. The Popie whispered this into the ears of millions of children who are being brought up by their parents in the ways of Christ. Watch out for those teachers they will either lead you away from Christ or towards Christ with their words. If you are a teacher you will receive the stricter judgement. Pray for the Pope!!

.lori, there are Christian churches that still preach the truth, but none of them are catholic churches. The reason there are so many false churches today is because this generation is in apostasy, and sinful mankind chooses a "smooth" false gospel, rather than the "straight" true gospel. Sin does not want to hear words like, Repent, Surrender, Self-sacrifice, Let others first, Fast, Obedience, etc. But instead, they want their Sin and also the Blessing, but it doesn't work like that.
---Eloy on 7/23/07

Food for thought. the bible teaches there is one baptism, one way to pray, one gospel, one Jesus Christ, twelve apostles, truth is revealed through the Holy Ghost, gifts of the spirit are not given to everyone but only those who need them. He said we have to repent and avoid sins of the flesh. there is one bible but many born again churches teach different doctrines contradicting each other. Many are not even found in the bible anywhere. why. does the bible not teach truth Jesus taught.

.warwick, you are confusing Christianity with a false religion. Catholicism is not one of the Christian denominations, but instead catholicism is an entirely different religion altogether, it is idolatry. And yes, it does matter what denomination you believe in, because many denominations do not follow Christ nor do they obey his Commands.

Most Christians say they're Christian while most RC's say I'm Catholic. Personally denomination isn't important-my faith rests solely upon God's Word. I'm comfortable worshiping in most denominations. RC's hold denominational status as of paramount importance. Strange.

Christians know we're saved only by understanding we're sinners & that forgiveness only comes through accepting Jesus died & rose taking the punishment for our sin- saved by faith in Him alone.

Politics exist in every major Protestant denomination in the US, if you don't realize it you are not playing with a full deck.

A Servant-(Jesus is not the bread) because He is God who can do miracles. (He is the Bread) from Heaven because He is the only Life a Christian has, like an umbilical cord.

Is he or not?
---Ruben on 7/13/07

You are certainly welcome to ask my Master, Whom I serve.

Jesus is not the bread because He is God who can do miracles. He is the Bread from Heaven because He is the only Life a Christian has, like an umbilical cord.

As the branches receives life from the vine, we receive our life from Him. This is Spiritual. He does not turn into actual bread made from flour. This is earthly.

If you don't have Jesus, you don't have the Spirit, you don't have Spiritual life.

See Jn 15:5.

It is not only idol worship, but it is blasphemous to reduce Jesus to a wafer, and to imply that eternal life can be acquired by man if he eats the wafer 'containing' Christ.

This is nothing less than a Babylon spirit of man trying to gain Heaven by something he does, & not as the gift of God.

Emcee ... I'm not sure I understand what you are aying.
What I said was that the RC is not the only denomination which sometimes claims to be the ONLY way to heaven.
There are those from other denominations who make the same claim.
I beleive such claims are wrong. Baptist, Pents, luths, CofE, and many others including of course the RC can lead to heaven, providing there is faith and love.
None should claim exclusivity, nor deny any other.

Well any MAN that proclaims primacy for the Roman Catholic Church should have the decency and humility to confess the sins of the church and request it's forgiveness from the ones it sinned against. (The Inquisition, Joan of Ark, and both Crusades, this might be a good starting place.) There has never been a formal admittance of wrong from the church on any of these heinous acts!

The pope decrees the catholic church is the only true church. If that is true, heaven help the world. the whole world is condemned. why: we do not bow down to one man exalting himself above Jesus Christ. We ask God to forgive us of our sins, not man. We accept mary as the mother of Jesus Christ, but don't pray to her. Jesus told us how to pray in the bible. We don't worship idols of saints and men. Jesus said if any man teaches a different gospel than he taught, it is not of God.

The Catholic Church is a false religion and has strayed far from what the aposles handed down. They break just about every Doctrine of Jesus Christ!!
