Christ's Church is an earthly organization of those who believe in Jesus and Hist teachings.
Jesus chose twelve apostles to receive in-depth training in His teachings and the meanings of those teachings.
Jesus only chose twelve.
Why believe that those twelve did not have authority and understanding that exceeded the authority and understanding of other followers of Jesus?
the bible tells us that the christian community accorded the twelve special status and authority.
the bible tells us that Jesus taught the apostles with information that was not provided to others who believed in Him?
why should we believe that the current followers of Jesus have no human beings to lead them?
