Is Rome the True Church? [08/12/2012]

EPISODE #98

The claims Rome makes for herself can be shown to be false. Two big reasons why Rome cannot be the one true church:

  1. Justification. They teach dogma directly contrary to the essential elements of the gospel.
  2. History. Many historical examples are contra Rome’s claims about papal authority/infallibility.

*WE EVEN SNEAK IN A RAP SONG WRITTEN AND PERFORMED LIVE BY MARTIN LUTHER HIMSELF!
