Pentecostal Christians Existed Before Roman Catholic by FXKing2012(m): 6:27am On Dec 07, 2012
The apostles were called Christians for the first time on the day of the pentecost (Acts 2). This means that the first Christians were pentecostal Christians.
So quit spreading the false notion that the first Christians were catholics.

You are funny.

Firstly, they were not called "Christians" on that day.

Your post would also mean that the first Christians were Redeemers because the apostles were redeemed; and the first Christians belonged to Living Faith Church because the apostles had living faith; same goes for the Christ Apostolic Church, Deeper Life, etc

This is not a wise way to look at it.

The early Church was Catholic. Its just as simple as that. Pathetic manipulations like this cannot change the true history of Christianity.

Point of correction,all these religious shops, investments or establishments you call churchs are not formally called penticostals but rather PROTESTANTS and that is what they will always be. Just look at how you employed logic in PROTESTING about a historical fact that you cannot change. Even non christians and Anglicans knows that The HOLY ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH is the one and only Church founded by JESUS CHRIST. No other christian denomination can date as little as 5 centuries back. Please if you don't know the history of your estabishment go and ask your CEO.

and who says the church started in Rome? Peter went to Rome toward the end of his life and there suffered martyrdom UNDER NERO. NO SOURCE describes the place of Peter's martyrdom as other than Rome. It seems most probable, on the whole, that Peter died a martyr's death IN ROME TOWARD THE CLOSE OF NERO'S REIGN, sometime AFTER the cessation of the general persecution.

“The Church here in Babylon, united with you by God’s election, sends you her greeting, and so does my son, Mark” (1 Pet. 5:13, Knox). Babylon is a code-word for Rome. It is used that way multiple times in works like the Sibylline Oracles (5:159f), the Apocalypse of Baruch (2:1), and 4 Esdras (3:1). Eusebius Pamphilius, in The Chronicle, composed about A.D. 303, noted that “It is said that Peter’s first epistle, in which he makes mention of Mark, was composed at Rome itself; and that he himself indicates this, referring to the city figuratively as Babylon.”

your level if delusion is beyond imagination. Pentecostal movement originated from the Lutheran church created by a former Roman Catholic German monk called Martin Luther. Get a proper history education and stop reading your bible

Yes but no name was ascribed to d church. Simply becos catholics claim Peter as d first pope doesnt make him roman catholic.

As it is in the bible John 17, Jesus prayed for believers and He is coming for His Bride (the church) and not brides (various denominations).

Also Peter never started the Catholic Church.
He was married.
He went to Rome to evangelise, he was killed for the gospel's sake, actually he was crucified upside down (his own preference, as he didn't want to be martyred upright like Jesus Christ).

@ OP

I think it is better to say that Christianity existed long before there was such a thing as the Roman Catholic Church. wink

On the other hand, even though the Holy Spirit uniquely descended on Christians first on that day of Pentecost, "Pentecostal Christianity" as we know it today is very very very young and recent indeed. smiley

cool

U son of Sherlock Holmes!
What AMAZING and SHOCKING evidence!
THE FIRST CHRISTIANS WERE ACTUALLY PENTECOSTAL!
Why? Becos they were called christains on the day of the pentecost. How baffling!

So if I am called an atheist on christmas day I become a christian atheist?

My lord u are a genius!
Re: Pentecostal Christians Existed Before Roman Catholic by chukwudi44(m): 10:28am On Dec 08, 2012
No apostolic church was the first church because christianity was starterd by the apostles

Baptists were the first church because Jesus was baptoised

Redeemed was the first church because christ has redeemed us

Christ embassy was the first church because christianity founded on christ

What a shallo way of reasoning!!!

I wonder what happened to all these early 'pentecostal' and 'christian' churches ? Which of the numerous protestant sect are they part of
