Eve was born from the side of Adam. The Catholic Church was born from the side of Jesus on the cross.
**Matthew 16:18 **
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it
"For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh." 32This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church.
Christ and his church are one.
If you are not a member(A limb, such as an arm or a leg. ) then you “amputate” yourself from the Body of Christ, His Church.
1 Corinthians 12:27 **
Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.
**Romans 12:5 **
so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.
**Ephesians 4:12 **
to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the **body of Christ **may be built up
Denomination, non-denomination it doesn’t matter there is only one body. Not 30,000 + bodies.
If you follow Luther,Calvin,King Henry viii, you follow men.
You have a right to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. You’ll find it in the One,Holy,Catholic and Apostolic Church.It was founded by Jesus.
