A 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.

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.
Because the Catholic Church IS that Church.
