kasmic

Resolved: The Church established by Christ in the bible, requires a foundation of living apostles and prophets. Without this foundation a church cannot claim to be the Christ's church. Ephesians 2:19-20 (KJV) "19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; 20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;" Round one for acceptance only No...
