Church – Which is the right Church?
If two parties should ever find themselves in disagreement about any topic whatsoever, the correct way to settle it would be to refer to the manual or spec sheet of that specific object or subject in dispute.
So when we are in disagreement about a topic and “everyone” thinks they are right, the best would be to refer to the manual we have received that answers all the questions of life.
