    While it's true they have the same name — Jesus — they are not the same person. The office of bishop. Joan of Arc, etc. Among the various Churches there is, as can be seen, an enormous variation in size, with Russia at one extreme and Sinai at the other. When the first Christian community began, "they continued steadfastly in the Apostles' doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread Communionand in prayers" Act And it is the responsibility of the bishops, the priests, and the deacons to be sure that this is a reality for the laity.

    In the encyclical Mortalium animos of 6 January Pope Pius XI wrote that "in this one Church of Christ no man can be or remain who does not accept, recognize and obey the authority and supremacy of Peter and his legitimate successors" and quoted the statement of Lactantius : "The Catholic Church is alone in keeping the true worship. Then, in the early fourth century, a heresy with potential for Church-wide disruption appeared and was propagated by Arius, a presbyter in Alexandria Egypt. Its Western ecclesiastical monopoly was greatly diminished, and massive division replaced its artificial unity. I recommend reading them.

    Then we will look at how one enters the true church. Note also the mutual light shed by the Old and New Testaments the one upon the other. We are to gather to be taught, equipped for ministry so we can evangelize to bring others to the Lord. While some, such as the Lutherans and Anglicans, held on to a basic form of liturgy and sacrament, others, such as the Reformed Churches and the even more radical Anabaptists and their descendants, questioned and rejected many biblical ideas of hierarchy, sacrament, historic tradition, and other elements of historic Christian practice, no matter when and where they appeared in history, thinking they were freeing themselves of Roman Catholicism. While some disagree that the West departed the New Testament Church at this point, the reality remains that the schism was never healed. Will be have the courage and determination that Valera and Del Corro had, now closer to the end times, once Spain opens to be impacted with the Word of God?

Therefore, as Paul would not compromise sin at Corinth I Corinthians but rebuked a tolerance of sin in that church, any congregation that overlooks discipline today is not the true church and cannot lead one to heaven. I do not believe that any dear Christians who have really received sight from the Lord could still remain in the denominations.

All seemed to share a mutual dislike for the bishop of Rome and the practice of his Church, and most wanted far less centralized forms of leadership. In the Bible, we see that the local or visible church is nothing more than a gathering of professing believers. Beloved, if we are professing Christianity with a name or designation that is foreign to the Bible, we are dishonoring God, Christ and the Bible.

Unresponsive to Luther's many legitimate objections concerning the novel practices of the now-separated Western Church, Rome refused to budge or bend. However, while many brothers in Seville or Valladolid suffered the wrath of the Inquisition, the Spanish Reformers, Valera, Del Corro, Enzinas, Pere Gales and many others would work non stop to impact the Spanish with books, Bibles, education projects, underground congregations in houses, like the one of the Cazalla's, and counted with the support of good and influential Christians of faith, many nobles and others recognized university doctors that had to emigrate to avoid being murdered by the Inquisition Tribunal of the Vatican and the Spanish kings.

Others where tortured to obtain information and would be left to rotten slowly in humid and stinking prisons to death, including pregnant women, children and elder, with no compassion, and in the name of God and of the "Holy Mother Catholic and Apostolic Roman Church", murderer of those that could not convert by force to its destructive heresy; those were the arts of the Inquisition.

We enter the Church become part of the church by a person and his work for us. Then at the beginning of the XX century the ministry of the colporteur and the legalization of the Spanish Evangelical Allianz would set the foundation for the present media, but they would have to survive to the two dictatorships of Primo de Rivera and of Franco, and even worst, to the Catholic reaction.

One true church

The world has also rejected the inspired directives of the One that is vested with "all authority in heaven and on earth" Matthew It is a figure of the death, burial and resurrection of Christ Romans Jesus said: "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves What does Jehovah's house mean?
