Matthew 7:21-23 King James Version (KJV)
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

 

The term “Catholic” is itself derived from the Greek word “katholikos” meaning “universal”.

John 4:21–24 (NLT): 21 Jesus replied, “Believe me, dear woman, the time is coming when it will no longer matter whether you worship the Father on this mountain or in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans know very little about the one you worship, while we Jews know all about him, for salvation comes through the Jews. 23 But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. 24 For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.”

 

Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the LORD pondereth the hearts. provers 21:2

Judges 17:6 -New King James Version
In those days there was no king in Israel; everyone did what was right in his own eyes.

Proverbs 12:15
The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

The church was purchased by God:  "Be on guard for yourselves and for all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood," (Acts 20:28).


Jesus is the head of the Church:  "And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all," (Eph. 1:22-23).

The church is the dwelling place of God:  "in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit," (Eph. 2:22).

You, if you are in Christ, have God living in you.  You are in the church as much as you are the church.
