they are not a part of Christ's Church Body; this is a theology made up by Constantine in the 4th century a. d.; they do not have one false doctrine; they have many false doctrines; we are to judge by their spiritual fruits, or we find ourselves disobeying Christ's command; to beware of false prophets and teachers, that you be not deceived; spurious doctrines far out of the bible; they call themselves the one true church of Christ; apostolic succession, when it was 400 years after the apostles before this false entity came into being, and from an emperor of Rome ?
