Pope: Jesus formed ‘only one church’

Benedict issues statement asserting that Jesus established ‘only one church’  MSNBC News Services

LORENZAGO DI CADORE, Italy – Pope Benedict XVI has reasserted the universal primacy of the Roman Catholic Church, approving a document released Tuesday that says Orthodox churches were defective and that other Christian denominations were not true churches.

It restates key sections of a 2000 document the pope wrote when he was prefect of the congregation, “Dominus Iesus,” which set off a firestorm of criticism among Protestant and other Christian denominations because it said they were not true churches but merely ecclesial communities and therefore did not have the “means of salvation.”

The document said Orthodox churches were indeed “churches” because they have apostolic succession and that they enjoyed “many elements of sanctification and of truth.” But it said they lack something because they do not recognize the primacy of the pope — a defect, or a “wound” that harmed them, it said.

We saw Tony Blair convert to Catholicism right after stepping down as the Prime Minister, and there are rumors that George W. Bush may be following suit. If they are the ‘REAL CHURCH’ it may not be a bad move, but if they prove to be nothing more than ‘VAIN RELIGION’ it will surely be a sad move.
