I think that the discussion is quite interesting, however for those who claim that there is only one instituional church I have some questions. If this were the case, that there is only one instituional church, then it would also be true that there would be no such thing as "partial communion" with other churches, and yet we have seen that the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox do engage in relations of partial communion with each other. In one place (I believe Sardinia) there is a priest who is both Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox. If it were true that there is only one institution that is church, and likewise that there is no division within the Church, but only division from the Church, then both of these circumstances would be intolerable. If it is true that there is only one, holy (usually interpreted as infallible), catholic and apostolic Church in an institutional sense, and these churches (i.e. Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and Roman Catholic) have all compromised on this belief, then we must conclude that none of these traditions are indeed that one true church.
