Your post is really puzzeling Rob, by whose authority do you, tell me I can't possibley read and understand the Bible.<quoted text>
God is the Authority.
The Bible is the standard.
When you interpret the Bible according to some "Principle". One must define the "Principle". In your case it would be best to say that you understand the Bible in a historically real sense, a morally responsible sense, and as a God-breathed(inspired) spiritual sense....
Secondly, when you make a list of Bible principles, it is "YOU", or someone you follow, that has made the list of principles. This necessarily invalidates the Bible Authority. One could randomly pick out some scriptures and apply them in any way, and say, "The Bible's Authority declares it so, when in fact it is the person making the list who is the "Authority".
Here is the problem. If the Bible is the Authority, then you can't fly on a jet, drive a car, watch tv, or use a computer. Why? Because your Authority said nothing, and you cannot assume anything.
Phil 4:13 I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me.
What do you think that means Rob, do you not believe that God is able to teach His church (WHICH ARE PEOPLE) THROUGH HIS HOLY SPIRIT, WHY DO YOU PUT DOUBT IN PEOPLE, WHY DO YOU DENY THE POWER OF ALMIGHTY GOD.
REV 3 READ IT ROB, GOD OPENS DOORS NO MAN CAN CLOSE, AND SHUTS THE DOORS NO MAN CAN OPEN.
FARTHER MORE I THINK YOU ARE TRYING TO BLOCK THE CATHOLIC PEOPLES WAY TO GODS THRONE ROOM PAST THE VEIL THAT WAS TORE IN TWO FROM TOP TO BOTTOM WHEN JESUS DIED ON THE CROSS, IT MEANS THE EARTHLY PRIEST HOOD IS DONE WITH.
WE HAVE A HOLY HIGH PRIEST HIS NAME IS JESUS, AND ALL WHO HAVE BEEN WASH IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB BELONGS TO THAT ROYAL PRIESTHOOD.
