The Cordial Catholic Podcast – 002: What is the Church? April 10, 2019

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic Podcast we talk about the Church.

Did Jesus intend the Church to be an invisible collection of believers? Is this what the very first Christians believed about themselves?

Is this how the whole of the Christian Church understood itself to be for the first 1,500 years of church history?

Spoiler alert: the answer is, no. Instead, I argue, the Church always thought of itself as visible, singular, and united in a hierarchical structure until the Protestant Reformation.
