John 10:16 New International Version (NIV)
16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.
We used to be OKEY to our divisions. For we used to like that we owned a certain groups. And we are the HEADS.
Christ established only ONE CHURCH (Mat 16:18). And he commissioned St Peter to be the ONE VISIBLE SHEPHERD in his invisible presence (John 21:15-17).
Acts 1:20 demanded that when an OFFICE is vacant somebody shall takeover. The question is, when the office of St Peter was vacant, who succeeded him?
All I could say regarding this very very important unifying question. It is very easy to pinpoint what is that ONE TRUE RELIGION implied, that we should be united. The one religion that can show us a ONE SET of LIST, regarding the office of St Peter. From Peter to the present holder of his office, now Pope Francis. No other list, except, the list of the office of the PAPACY. And not the list of the office of the Executive Ministers of the INC, from, Felix Manalo to Eduardo Manalo.
Here is the list of Popes, from Peter... (click the web link below)
I agree. For Christianity is Theocracy. People don't feel comfortable in Theocracy form of government, for they think and feel, that Theocracy is a dictatorship.
If Theocracy is dictatorship, I really LOVE this kind of dictatorship.
I Love the dictatorship of God, than, the dictatorship of Relativism. For Relativism is Polytheism. Dictatorship of God is Unity, while, dictatorship of Relativism is divisions.
The Keys to Unity, is the Keys entrusted by Christ to St Peter (Matthew 16:18-19) as His Vicar or Representative (John 21:15-17).
One of the reasons why it may be difficult to hear God in the modern world is that we often hear people in our secular culture who disagree with the BASIC PRINCIPLE. That the True Church of God, is the Pillar and Foundation of Truth (1 Timothy 3:15). And the Final Arbiter here in this world (Matthew 18:17-18).
When our TRUST to the FAITH and MORALS to the Church is lost. It is very difficult to hear God. Why? Because the depository of TRUTH is in the CHURCH (1 Tim 3:15).
