Many denominations are rife with discord and dissention. None of these can be the true Church of Christ. There is only one truth so the one true church must be unified by that truth.
“Catholic” means universal. That the true church would be a universal or catholic church is undeniable.
The second mark of the Church is the hardest to demonstrate. That the Church is holy seems to fly in the face of some of the headlines. There are many reasons for this. One of those reasons is that the Church, unfortunately, has many enemies.
The true church must be unified. Jesus told us that he and the Father are one. Their unity is perfect. It would be impossible for it not to be. Since the Father is truth and the Son is truth, they must be united because that truth cannot be divided.
The answer is yes. God did intend for there to be one united Church led by leadership that Christ set forward before and after His death and resurrection. Let me show you some Scriptural proof for these statements, which are very much in favor of the Catholic position.
