The cat exist and the RCC exist. Cat and RCC split and neither can look organic. Many cats and many denominations. Cat wants to be the king and the RCC wants to be the kings. We don't have kind anymore. RCC has short legs and can't walk anymoreI believe that you are misunderstanding me.
It's as though I claimed that the cats today ultimately can trace their generation to some previous cat or set of cats, and you objected, saying: "Yeah, but which cat came from which cat? You don't know!"
I'd shrug my shoulders and say: "Dunno, but the fact is, for any given cat, it came from some cat."
In order to cast doubt on apostolic succession, you'd have to show me some period of time after Jesus and the Apostles in which there were no validly ordained bishops.
