Galatians 1:8, 2 Cor. 11:13-15, Deut. 4:2, 1 Cor. 4:6, Col. 2: 20-23 (self-made religion), 2 John 9<quoted text>
You "fundies" are always trying to "resurrect", "manipulate" "change" and "re-write" historical and biblical TRUTH that has been proven, over and over and over again as TRUE for over 2000 years.
An "Elder" refers to (the person (minister-teacher or pastor)
while a "Bishop" refers to (the office) that the person occupies in the Churches authority as supervisor (of a number of churches) or better known as "overseer"-of the elders, ministers, priests or teachers--Acts 2--Greek translation for Church is "ecclessia" which means heirachical, authoritative, visible Church with --YES---Bishops, priests, elders, deacons!(again Acts 2)
As the Churches multiplied in number (beginning with the list of Churches that Paul wrote to) ONE "overseer" or bishop was appointed or elected among all the bishops and that was designated as Pope who just another bishop. Cardinals were later appointed by the Pope,(bishop) again, as a high ecclesiastic order to assist in the spiritual direction of the Pope (bishop) and the Church.
Furthermore, where does it say "in the bible" that every word, every phrase,e very sentence MUST be in the bible in order for it to be true. Also, where does it say "in the bible" that God chose to transmit his inspired and infallible word, "only in the bible"?
The fact is NOWHERE!! This is an "invented, concocted, made-up myth that you bible only "buffoons" have created "on your own, in an attempt to "rewrite biblical and historical (church history) TRUTH, that has existed for over 2000 years. The fact is that "the Church came first---then the bible (more than 350 years after Jesus initiated His first Church at Antioch!!It was the Jesus Christs One True Universal Church--the Catholic Church --that gave you the bible that you mis-interpret, mis-quoted and (spin) to your own "demise and destruction". The is why Paul, in I Timothy 3:15 calls "the Church (not the bible) the pillar, pinnacle, and foundation of the TRUTH!!!----You bible only "fundies" have become "failed experts" in your efforts to "re-write Church History and interpreting (or better yet) mis-interpreting the bible in order to "feed into the hostility, vengeance and heresies" that have infected your "mind, heart and souls!!!
Heb. 11:4 (God had given His instructions, His will, to them. One did not fully obey)
Numbers 19:2 (specific instruction eliminates everything else) Gen. 6:4, Lev. 10: 1-2 (notice, which He had not commanded them), Exodus 25:12-14 (later David didn't move it in this manner (2 Sam. 6: 3-7)- wasn't good - it was sinful (2 Chron. 15:13), Neh. 7: 63-64 'silence' on the matter did not give 'consent'.
