Pope Reinstates Four Excommunicated Bishops
VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI, reaching out to the far-right of the Roman Catholic Church, revoked the excommunications of four schismatic bishops on Saturday, including one whose comments denying the Holocaust have provoked outrage.

The decision provided fresh fuel for critics who charge that Benedict’s four-year-old papacy has increasingly moved in line with traditionalists who are hostile to the sweeping reforms of the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s that sought to create a more modern and open church.

A theologian who has grappled with the church’s diminished status in a secular world, Benedict has sought to foster a more ardent, if smaller, church over one with looser faith.

But while the revocation may heal one internal rift, it may also open a broader wound, alienating the church’s more liberal adherents and jeoparding 50 years of Vatican efforts to ease tensions with Jewish ...

Michael has it correct, Lance. [URL=]]]Evaluating the Church Today[/URL] is the same as it was during the time that Book of Revelation was written. As it is stated in the Indian Hills Community Church's Constitution,
"Qualifications for Membership

Any person who has trusted Christ as personal Savior and attends Indian Hills Community Church is considered a member of this local assembly. Members and those considering membership are encouraged to examine the Statement of Faith and this Constitution and then discuss with a pastor or an elder any matter not understood."

Tares are never the member of the church, as they are in the apostate RCC one. You have to think about [URL=]]]The Ministry God Entrusted to the Church[/URL].

So it seems there isn't One True Church, just a lot of slightly-less-than-true churches (but containing no tares or wheat).

Long day yesterday and probably another one at work today so if I am not a clear as I hope to be please bear with me.

Scripture doesn't speak of any global institutional "church", especially one comprised of tares and wheat
Yes! A genuinely converted born again of the Holy Ghost believers are members of the body of Christ, the Bride of Christ...His church! The one that He and He alone is head of.

btw it is adultery if a man has someone elses wife.

Scripture speaks of LOCAL CHURCHES, the church at Ephesus, the church at Sardis, the church at Jerusalem, etc.
After all Biblically whereever 2 or 3 gather together IN HIS NAME there HE is in their midst. IN HIS NAME is quite different that merely having a communion wafer in a little box and imagining He is in your building.

So in the sense of no one institutional denominations you are correct there is no true "Church" on this earth BUT there are genuine churches made of of born again redeemed believers who meet together IN HIS NAME. You should find one.

BTW you can visit but you can't "join" one has to be to be born into This Family

Ye must be born again!

Ah, Lance, it wouldn't matter at all what Gil Rugh thought of the Roman Catholic Church if one stayed or not, but what God thought, when one comes up with the right answers to, [URL=]]]Is A Catholic Christian An Oxymoron?[/URL] and [URL=]]]Is the One True Church Roman Catholic?[/URL]. They will run as fast as they can from this they will run as fast as they can from [URL=]]]Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses[/URL] and any other cult. Lance, as a person that reasons (except in the area of religion ) I hope you make it out of the Popish Church, at least some day.

You're always saying that, Jim. If you consider yourself a Christian, you ought to consider entering the Catholic Church (even if Pastor Gil Rugh disapproves).

Who's a Catholic?

Sinful politics will not mix with Grace, Scripture or the Holy Spirit, any more than any other sinful preoccupation of man.
Everything man does out side of true saving faith is sin. God abhors sin.

Rom 14:23 And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: **for whatsoever is not of faith is sin.**

Even Romans 13, must be set in context.
Verse 9 states; "For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself."

Politics and 'religion' mix.

Politics and true religion don't.
