So Jesus did not intend to found the Church, oh really

Christ-Handing-The-Keys-To-St-PeterA few days ago I listened to a great talk by Catholic Bible Scholar, author and speaker, Dr. Brant Pitre, entitled Jesus and the Mystery of the Kingdom. If you’ve encountered folks who try to tell you that Jesus never intended to found the Church, or that He never did found the Kingdom on earth, or that He never intended for there to be a visible Kingdom, or any number of other frequently heard but patently false objections, please listen to this talk. And share it with your friends and family. Listen to or download Dr. Brant Pitre’s Jesus and the Mystery of the Kingdom MP3.

About Disciple

I am a pro-life activist, blogger, writer, poet, singer songwriter, musician, photographer, nerd, bookworm and Mac fan. I have two dogs, one of whom is well-travelled. (I had three for a while after adopting a senior dog, but he has now passed away, and the pack is back to two girl dogs. One was born after, the days of mammoth road trips.) And the most important thing is: I was received into Holy Mother Church in 1996 and, through the grace of God, I love Christ and His Church more with every passing day. Thanks be to God!

    Really? Who says Jesus didn’t come to found a Church? Who said it’s not visible?

    Anyone who says these things are being, well, silly. However, the question of whether or not it’s the Roman Catholic Church that Jesus founded is another matter all-together. I think that’s where most people who say Jesus didn’t come to found the Roman Catholic Church get slated into an unfair corner by Roman Catholics. Many Roman Catholics automatically hear that Jesus didn’t come to start His Church when they hear someone argue against the Roman Catholic Church as being that same church.
