The One True Church
Author: Joe Weller
The Bible tells us that all are sinners in need of a Savior. Sin, therefore, does not discriminate between different Christians and their religious denominations. The content of this book represents over thirty years of personal experience, research, observation, study, and prayer; in an effort to demonstrate through the Bible, and through history, that “The One True Church” is not an institutional church or a specific religious denomination, but rather all true believers who belong to the “Body of Christ.”
Today, many Catholics and non-Catholics alike, struggle to understand Catholic traditions, from a Biblical perspective. Over the centuries the Catholic Church has evolved into a complex religious organization of beliefs, rules, rituals, and requirements; described as “speculative and mystical theology,” by a leading Catholic apologist, who says that most Catholics do not fully understand, and can’t explain their faith to others. This book can be a useful resource for these and others, who have an interest in understanding what Catholics teach and what Protestants believe.
