How do you know that your church fathers told you the truth.<quoted text>
When Gods inspired word is read- but interpreted differently then what He wishes- what good is it?
So the question remains: which one of you are interpreting it the way God wishes.
Personally, I don't want to be the one responsible for interpreting it opposite of what God wants, so I'm sticking with the interpretations of the Church that put the book together and the teachings of the Apostolic fathers, because I don't believe the Apostles would have left their writings to be a hidden secret. I believe they explained them to the men they ordained.
All tough I am not a big fan of Luther, he was a catholic and dicide the church fathers were in error.
And many catholic's after him decided Luther was right.
Why is that I wonder;;;; could it be that almighty God put the truth in their hearts and lead them to understanding it through the Holy Spirit of Truth.
There is no salvation in the catholic church or the protestant churchs salvations comes from God Himself.
