The Bible actually says;<quoted text>
Besides Confrint, what good does it do to read Sacred Scripture from the eyes of a 21st century lense? Why not read the writings of the first Christians if you're truly interested in what those Bible verses mean..
'It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that has heard, and has learned of the Father, comes unto me.'
'As for you, the anointing you received from him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit--just as it has taught you, remain in him.'
No mention of the 'first christians' Clay. Your teachers are FALSE.
