I take no offense to honest mistakes when they occur, so no worries. I am not asserting this at all. I am asserting that the original Catholic church is the result of the earliest Christian faith- Though Peter was not the first Pope, as they claim; the Catholic church did, in fact, come from the first believers. It was a gradual growth, from a scattering of believers all across the known world under various overseers, such as Timothy; to a unified body which came to be known as the Catholic Church. It is vital that one understands that the original Catholic Church was not what we see today. Remember what I said earlier about the substitution of the word church? The name "Catholic Church" literally meant "universal body of Christ." It was coined in the second century as a means of identifying those who followed what we now call the Bible, from those who were Arian, Gnostic, etc. Over time, the Catholic Church grew corrupt, and the first great schism took place as a result. This bore offshoots of the different variations of Catholicism. The Protestant Reformation was yet another schism as a result of corruption within the Catholic Church, and it was here that several alterations were made to the Bible that we from that offshoot currently have today. During the Protestant Reformation, seven books were struck from the canon, as were certain chapters of books, and verses of chapters. Examples of this would be the last verses of Esther, Psalm 151, and parts of Daniel. We also nearly lost some books that were ultimately left, such as James and Revelation. So, to summarize, the Christianity we know today did, in fact, spring from the Catholic Church; but the Catholic Church was originally comprised and developed by the first Followers of The Way. Now, if I may ask you a question wholly unrelated: What do you mean when you state "seer" under your username?
