The Catholic Church was started by Jesus Christ in 33 AD. Mt And so I say to you, you are "Rock", and upon this rock I will build My church, and the gates of the netherworld shall not prevail against it.
12 Apostles had to be true believers in Christ to think He was worth dying for. Tell me again how hard it is for you to live all God's laws . The apostles certainly illustrate how far we have fallen from true devotion.
