Question 93

Father what should we do about the Catholics and Pappists who say we aren't the true church because we are post schismatic. 

 

Answer to Question 93

 

They have to say that to justify themselves to the world. The truth is that we are the only one and true church; the Roman Catholic church broke away from the true church in 1054 and added new teachings and dogmas contrary to the teaching of the Bible. They are the post schismatics and because they were more powerful than the Orthodox Church, they wrote up history as it suited them, but in recent years many western Christian scholars are beginning to sift out the lies from the truth and can see the Catholic church for what they really are.
