The Roman Catholic church committed many acts that were long a part of demonstrating that it is NOT “the Church” and has not been for many centuries. As to the “Body of Christ”, obviously your spiritual education is sadly lacking; and Jesus was, in fact, an historical Figure, about Whom much more is known than Alexander the Great or Julius Caesar, or many another, whose existence I doubt you would so question. The histories about Jesus were written by His personal FRIENDS and followers, men who lived alongside and KNEW Him. But they were also included by historians of that era, who also knew. How sad that you feel you have to ridicule that which you choose to deny.
