It is possible to come to the very edge of telling of falsehood, while still telling the technical truth. Church leaders have gotten very good at this.
What is the basis of thinking of a national (or political) grouping of churches as a "particular Church"?
What are the disadvantages of churches being organized along ethnic or political divisions? (And the advantages?)
