Allow the inspired Scriptures to answer all of your religious questions

Matthew 16:19 – “I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever you bind (declare to be improper and unlawful) on earth must be what is already bound in heaven; and whatever you loose (declare lawful) on earth must be what is already loosed in heaven.” (Amplified Bible)

Ephesians 1:22, 23 – “And He put everything under His feet and appointed Him as head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of the One who fills all things in every way.” (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
Notice that the Lord is only the Saviour of His one body, His church, His kingdom
Ephesians 4:4 – “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” (King James Version)
Ephesians 5:23 – “For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the Saviour of the body” (King James Version)
Notice how we get into the one body, the one church, the one kingdom of Jesus Christ
I Corinthians 12:12, 13 – “For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of the body, being many, are one body; so also is Christ. For in one Spirit were we all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether bond or free; and were all made to drink of one Spirit.” (American Standard Version)
