tell me, where did the Bible come from and how do you know the Books that are in it...belong in it?<quoted text>
The 'stupid' is the one who doesnt know their Bible, and looks to other text - doctrines of men - You.
Other texts are only good for historic reference, not to found a Church or any Christian doctrine.
This is how the Jewish Talmud began - with the rabbis claiming they had oral traditions directly from Moses. They claimed to sit on the 'seat of Moses' creating many laws not in the written word of God. English 'Seat' is the Greek "kathedras".
Jesus chastises the Pharisees for following doctrines of men..
Mt 23:2 "Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:"
English 'seat'= Greek kathedras.
Jewish pharisees Talmud based on oral tradition same as Catholic phariseessss..
It matters. Rome claims Peter went to Rome and founded the Church. Peter never went to Rome. Paul writes in the book of Romans and does not mention Peter as being there; in the first chapter
1:11 For I long to see you, that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end all of you may be established;
15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
Then in chapter 16 Paul never mentions Peter being in Rome. And we cannot add to scripture what is not there.
You can have a bishop of Rome but its not biblical.
There are many other reasons to believe Peter never went to Rome and that Simon Magus was the actual founder of the pagan Roman Church..
This is important because you're using those Books to usurp the Church for supposedly not going by it.
The Church never said 'Peter was in Rome because its in the Bible'.
So whatever verses you slice and dice and zig and zag to prove Peter was never in Rome is stupid. The Bible simply does not say he was in Rome and does not say he wasn't. The fact is, it doesn't matter if he was or was not.
Sorry I called YOU stupid, I should have said your logic is stupid.
I don't think I'm interested in talkin with you, Soc. You need to seriously look in the mirror and lose this silly 911 conspiracy UFO Christianity. Its gotta be incredibly insulting to Jesus Christ to be that way.
