Excepts from the Catholic Encyclopedia

Open "apostolic succession", and Read

In the Apostolic teaching the term Church, from the very first, takes the place of the expression Kingdom of God(Acts 5:11). Where others than the Jews were concerned, the greater suitability of the former name is evident; for Kingdom of God had special reference to Jewish beliefs. But the change of title only emphasizes the social unity of the members. They are the new congregation of Israel — the theocratic polity: they are the people (laos) of God (Acts 15:14;Compare W61-11-1.htm , Acts15-13-17plus.htm  Romans 9:252 Corinthians 6:161 Peter 2:9 sq.Hebrews 8:10Revelation 18:421:3). By their admission to the Church, the Gentiles have been grafted in and form part of God's fruitful olive-tree, while apostate Israel has been broken off (Romans 11:24). St. Paul, writing to his Gentile converts at Corinth, terms the ancient Hebrew Church "our fathers" (1 Corinthians 10:1). Indeed from time to time the previous phraseology is employed, and the Gospel message is termed the preaching of the Kingdom of God (Acts 20:2528:31).

The Catholic Church was set up My Man and Not My God, so it can not be trusted to teach you the full truth that comes from God.

They read the scriptures and interpret them the way they think is best. But there is no evidences that God is helping them. They

Say their interpretations are Holy – Holy See That is Blasphemous. Holy God and his inspired word is Holy.

No man made doctrine is Holy.
