(Isaiah 22: 22) I will place the KEY of the house of David on Eliakim’s shoulder; when he OPENS, no one shall SHUT when he SHUTS no one shall OPEN. I will fix him like a peg in a sure spot, to be a place of honor for his family.
(Matt. 16: 17-19) And so I say to you, you are Peter, and upon this Rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. I will give you the KEYS to the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you BIND on earth shall be BOUND in heaven; and whatever you LOOSE on earth shall be LOOSED in heaven.
Re: Circumcsion was a law of that every male child must be circumcised. Peter loosed the law of circumcision. Now we men don’t need to be circumcised.
Protestants, Fact show that God throughout the Old and New Testaments always had a LEADER to govern his people. One who has been given such Authority to BIND or LOOSE anything in heaven or on earth MUST have the power of infallibilty on his side, don’t you think?
Protestants, or do you believe everyone of us has the power to bind and loose anything in heaven or on earth? … The answer to that is NO! Here is the proof, (Matt 16: 17-19) Jesus Christ is only talking to Peter “The Rock” Jesus point to Peter, Jesus, did not mentioned no other Apostles name, and all the 12 were there at the time. In other words if Jesus Christ wanted all of them to have this Authority he would of mentioned all their names, but Our Lord did not, again, only to Peter was given this Authority and to his Successors to be.
Protestants, Imagine Jesus Christ giving us all the KEYS to bind or loose anything in heaven or on earth, lets say i bind this such and such and you loose this same such and such, there would be CHAOS. We all know that Jesus Christ does not work in Chaos, but in ORDER, in LEADERSHIP a Kingdom devided against itself will not stand.
Many Protestants say the Bible is all we need. True the Bible is very very important one MUST read the Bible daily and follow it’s Teachings. Importantly one must not add or subtract as did Martin Luther. My point is that Jesus Christ did not leave the Bible, fact is that the Bible was written years years…later and to top it off it was written by the earlie Church Fathers whom themselves were Catholics:thumbsup: Jesus Christ LEFT his Church to us and a LEADER to govern with AUTHORITY and his name is PETER, UPON THIS ROCK I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH. Eventually Jesus knew that Peter would die and Jesus Christ knew there would have to be SUCCESSORS of Peter to Govern his People/Church throughout the centuries to the present day, again Jesus Works in Leadership.
Protestants, now what Church is the ONLY Church that claims that they have the Successor of Peter? Or more importantly who has the DOCUMENTS THAT CAN PROVE THIS CLAIM OF SUCCESSION from PETER to the present POPE?
Now if i were you, I would jump, do all that I can to become a Member of that Church.
Jesus Bless you on your Journey Home
