Church is not going anywhere
This refers to the article “Duterte: Catholic Church will disappear in 25 years” (2/26/19).
The Catholic Church has been around 2,000 years. At various times, the Church was rocked by scandals, lies, hatred from flawed and unfaithful men who betrayed their vows.
The Church even hurdled the years of Inquisitions, World Wars, Crusades and suffered persecutions and schisms—y et the Church is still here. Isn’t that a sign of longevity?
Will the Church disappear in 25 years? The Church is not going anywhere soon, and it should be fine for another 2,000 years.
