new proof that RCC isn't the church JC was talking aboutgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread
jesus christ said his church could not be divided...wasen't it already divided with the split of 1066?

No, it wasn't. The Orthodox split FROM the Catholic Church, becoming a new entity. The original Church founded by Christ, the Catholic Church, remains unified and undivided no matter how many defect from it.

He never said such a thing. He even prophesied many would come and tell the faithful, I am the Christ; false prophets. And, He chose 12 apostles. One of them left him and went with His enemies; to sell Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. --He also stated, I have come with a sword; to set father against son and son against father, & brother against brother. Where have you been getting your false info?

quite the contrary, sdqa, He didnt say it would not be divided, He said that the offshoots of division would be woeful to man (paraphrased of course). the schisms and protestants sects which have formed were prophecied AND have brought about the doctrinal chaos that Christ predicted. only the catholic church remains from that original church to this very day, same doctrine, same unity, same vision for the future.
