Ephesians 4:4-6 There is one body and one Spirit ----


#1

I will like some input from forum readers regarding below, said by the Protestant Church:

Ephesians 4:4-6
4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

Whether we know it or not, ALL "born again" Christians are in The HOLY CATHOLIC CHURCH (I am not speaking of the Roman Catholic Church here, but of the invisible Body of believers). The Church is bigger than any one denomination. It is bigger than the Roman Catholic Church, it is bigger than the Orthodox Church, the Methodist Church, the Baptist Church, Presbyterian Church or whatever other church denomination you can think of.

God´s Church is not invisible. God wants all to see his sheep, and know their fruits, and praise His Glory. God bless:thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

They're right!

Catholic literally means "universal".
There is only one church! Not only through our creation (God made us in His image and likeness....with intellect/will and to be a communion of persons...father son spirit as God is....) making us one in mind/body/heart whether we choose to acknowledge that or not....... but also in our worship! Christ established this universal.......this catholic church to be a home and sign of communion!

There is truly a marriage here! A marriage of persons and a marriage of humanity to God! When the begining of the split up of christianity began.....the protestant refirmation.........something horrible happened. A group of people taking offense to some bad things that were happening by people in the church.....decided to DIVORCE! Which is unacceptible! NO MATTER HOW BAD THE PROBLEMS WERE IN THE MARRIAGE.

The marriage is still valid..........it just needs to be redeemed. There is only one church founded by Christ. It is much bigger than all these small denomenations.
