Jesus said, you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free (Jn. 8:32)

There are many spoken words that are not true.

Even Christians are caught up in falsehoods. The writings in here discuss the historical Catholic Church founded by Jesus and the Apostles and contrasts this with the objections of the adversaries of the Church. There are many falsehoods being spoken against the Catholic Church.

There are three main areas where the Catholic Church is not accurately represented. The history and teachings of the Church are often misrepresented, and the Bible is oftentimes taken out of context. These are the main areas where the adversaries of the Church are trying to show that the Catholic Church is corrupt and not the Church founded by Jesus and the Apostles. They are oftentimes doing this in innocence, not realizing that they are in fact misrepresenting both the Church and the Bible.

The battle cry of many non-Catholics is “show it to me in the Bible.” This is actually something I very much agree with; however, once we see it in the Bible, then we must take it seriously. For example, we must take the Church seriously because the Church is in the Bible. The Apostle Paul tells us about a Church that is built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone (Eph. 2:19-20). In our Bible, the Church is given real authority, if he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector (Mt. 18:17). And so, we are commanded by Jesus to listen to the Church.

The Apostle Paul also references the church of the living God, the pillar and bulwark of truth (Tim. 3:15). This being true, then we must go to this same “Church of the living God” to access this “bulwark of truth.” Those who put the Bible at odds with the Church are at odds with the parts of their Bible where the Church is given real authority. The Church is in the Bible and the Bible is in the Church. In fact, it was this same authoritative Catholic Church that determined the Bible in the latter part of the 4th century.
