Who Follows the Bible,
"Yet not for these only do I pray, but for those also who
through their word are to believe in Me, that all may be One, even as thou, Father, in me and I in thee; that they may be
One in us, that the world
may believe that thou hast sent Me. And the glory that thou hast given Me, I
have given to them, that they may be One, even as we
are One." John 17:20-21.
"May then the GOD of patience and of comfort grant you to be of One mind towards one another according
to Jesus Christ; that One in spirit, you may with One
mouth glorify the GOD and Father of Our Lord Jesus
Christ." Rom 15:5-6
"Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all
may say the same thing; and that there be no
dissensions among you, but that you be perfectly united in One mind and in One
judgment." 1Cor 1:10
"For as the body is One and has many members, and all the members of the body, many as
they are, form One body, so also is it with Christ. For in One
Spirit we were all baptized into One body..."
"But as it is, there are indeed many members, but yet One body." 1Cor 12:20
"Only let your lives be worthy of the Gospel of Christ; so that whether I come
and see you, or remain absent, I may hear about you, that you are steadfast in
One Spirit, with One mind striving together for the faith of the Gospel." Phil 1:27
"Have this mind in you which was also in Christ Jesus." Phil 2:5

"...and there shall be one fold and one Shepherd," John 10:16.
This has to be true because He said
Is there one fold in Protestantism and
Protestant....No, there are 38,000 plus folds with new ones cropping up every
Oops! What happened here? It is a huge discrepancy in
Protestantism and definitely against Jesus Christ's own words in John 10:16. Who
follows the Bible on this one...and who does not? Why are there 38,000 folds in
Protestants....1 out of 2
Maybe this is the reason why Protestants missed
"This then, you must understand first of
all, that no prophecy of Scripture is made by private interpretation." 2Pet
Do you follow this verse and heed what it
Protestant....No, they do individual interpretation.
Catholic......Yes, 3500 + Bishops with impeccable
credentials and the Pope, all in agreement with what the Holy Spirit teaches. No
individual interpretation here.
Another Oops? Could this be the reason
for the 38,000 splits in Protestantism? Sounds like everyman for himself to me.
Give me another reason for the 38,000 plus Protestant

a wise man who built his house upon the rock; and the rain fell, and the
floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall,
because it had been founded on the rock. And every one who hears these
words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his
house upon the sand; and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds
