Why some Protestants di$obey.

Jesus spoke very clearly in Matthew 16: 18-20. In that short passage, He announced to Peter and the Apostles that He was founding One Church:
“And I tell you that you are Peter,and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
Why would anyone put themselves in a position where they would need to argue about that? How could anyone read that clear, simple, direct passage and not understand that Jesus was founding One Church? How could someone avoid the rational conclusion that Jesus was putting one man, Peter, and his successors, in charge of The Only Church He Founded?

Is it possible for a person to claim to be rational, intelligent, and honest and not see that Jesus was founded One Church? One is almost tempted to say to those who prefer one of the 40,000 little schisms to The Only Church Jesus Founded, “What is it that keeps you from understanding something so simple?”

Upton Sinclair explained it well. “It’s difficult to get a man to understand something if his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”
And, there we have it. Protestants who ignore Jesus’ clear instructions about founding One Church with one man in charge have salaries that depend on people ignoring Jesus. We understand: Why some Protestants di$obey.

It is horribly sad. Thousands of years of prophets’ predictions came true when The Messiah was born. Hundreds of separate prophecies were validated when He arrived at the appointed time and place in the predicted family. Events in His life and death were accurately predicted.

So, why are there people who call themselves “Christian” who ignore Jesus? Their salaries depend on ignoring, and getting others to ignore, Jesus. “It’s difficult to get a man to understand something if his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”

Does it matter? Is this simply a harmless “difference of opinion”? Once, it may have seemed so. In recent decades, vain, money-hungry men have begun over 40,000 separate schisms. All are competing for members and donations. The confusion keeps Pro-Life people from uniting in The Only Church Jesus Founded and stopping abortion.

There is blood on the hands of those who prefer money to be made in their separate schism to the plain, simple truth. If all Pro-Life people were Catholic, we could elect legislators who would stop abortion. Intentional Protestant confusion by schisms is what allows the killing to continue.
