                               CHURCH UNITY … RESEARCH REPORT “B’

During the past 32 years, ABCRC has researched every potential avenue of impact that may assist in determining why the second millennium has resulted in major worldwide undesired activities that have confronted the One Church.

 After writing over 500 articles on every possible link to the cause that may assist us to reach a conclusion, we have one primary result. This occurred when we asked, “Why did Our Lord select Twelve Apostles?”  After reviewing the first millennium Ecumenical Councils and recognizing the participation of multiple Particular Church Apostolic Leaders and comparing the participation of but one Particular Apostolic Church (of like-mind, in the second millennium), it is obvious that Our Lord wanted an adequate number of apostles to thoughtfully debate every potential action item  with the full representation of all Apostolic Churches. Obviously, it was Our Lord’s plan for the administration and management of all Apostolic Churches by selecting Twelve Apostles to make disciples of all nations.

The first millennium Ecumenical Councils were a success with many accomplishments. The second millennium with but one Apostolic Church participating resulted in many disasters; namely, the Great Schism, the priest shortage (eventual result of mandated celibacy), Protestant Reformation, subjugation of others (especially my Byzantine Carpatho Rusyn Church), pedophilia management, decrease in % of world members, disaster in the number of faithful per priest, decrease in Catholic school education, etc.

The second millennium, with its one Apostolic Church Leadership has limited the dialogue participation of Twelve Apostles and their wisdom in representing all the different people in the One Church.

Statistically, we are imploding. In 1963, we had 776 faithful per priest in the USA. The USA faithful per priest in 2016 was 1,859 faithful per priest. It is calculated that in 2055, the USA faithful per priest will be approximately 4,000 faithful per priest.  In 2015, the world’s faithful per priest numbered 3,019. The world’s population has more than doubled in the last 52 years and continues. 

The fact that one Apostolic Church controls the debate on the solution indicates that the priest shortage will increase and the greatest disaster is underway. Our Lord’s selection of Twelve Apostles is fractured and the solution is known.

Pope Francis wisely stated that there will be “no subjugation” but the priest shortage continues. It is strongly suggested that immediate action be taken and the West be divided into multiple Sui iuris Particular Apostolic Churches (continents, or countries of similar needs, cultures, etc.) and allow for a strong debate providing for the best solution to the priest shortage. Time is of essence.
