XIX. Of the Church
The visible Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, in which the pure Word of God is preached, and the Sacraments be duly ministered according to Christ’s ordinance, in all those things that of necessity are requisite to the same.
As the Church of Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Antioch, have erred, so also the Church of Rome hath erred, not only in their living and manner of Ceremonies, but also in matters of Faith.
This is one where I really wish I knew more of the history. I do know what the state of the church of Rome was at the time, but am sort of at a loss with what was happening with Jerusalem, Alexandria, and Antioch.
I had to post this a little early, got slammed with work, spent 13.5 hours flat out toiling today. I have to be on a roof at nothing o’clock in the morning, so have fun with this, and thanks for the prayers for work, it seems to be panning out for the moment.
