your defending the mystic go-pornos on one side of your mouth and then cursing the Good Book on the other should be proof enough that they're antichrist documents for anyone with half a brain;)
Poor attempt to discredit actual writings predating your scriptures.
You are "willfully ignorant" and it shows in your prejudiced choice of words.
Are you setting me up for an "inquisition too?
Should I bring a black female cat to make the "burning" official?
People like you with your prejudiced pseudo christ mentality are the cause of us still being in the "dark ages".

Sola Scriptura,” or Scripture Alone: This affirms the Biblical doctrine that the Bible alone is the sole authority for all matters of faith and practice. Scripture and Scripture alone is the standard by which all teachings and doctrines of the church must be measured. As Martin Luther so eloquently stated when asked to recant on his teachings, "Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason - I do not accept the authority of the popes and councils, for they have contradicted each other - my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen."
2—“Sola Gratia,” Salvation by Grace Alone: This affirms the Biblical doctrine that salvation is by God’s grace alone and that we are rescued from His wrath by His grace alone. God’s grace in Christ is not merely necessary, but is the sole efficient cause of salvation. This grace is the supernatural work of the Holy Spirit that brings us to Christ by releasing us from our bondage to sin and raising us from spiritual death to spiritual life.
3—“Sola Fide,” Salvation by Faith Alone: This affirms the Biblical doctrine that justification is by grace alone through faith alone because of Christ alone. It is by faith in Christ that His righteousness is imputed to us as the only possible satisfaction of God’s perfect justice.
4—“Solus Christus,” In Christ Alone: This affirms the Biblical doctrine that salvation is found in Christ alone and that His sinless life and substitutionary atonement alone are sufficient for our justification and reconciliation to God the Father. The gospel has not been preached if Christ’s substitutionary work is not declared, and if faith in Christ and His work is not solicited.
5—“Soli Deo Gloria, For the Glory of God Alone: This affirms the Biblical doctrine that salvation is of God and has been accomplished by God for His glory alone. It affirms that as Christians we must glorify Him always, and must live our entire lives before the face of God, under the authority of God, and for His glory alone.
These five important and fundamental doctrines are the reason for the Protestant Reformation. They are at the heart of where the Roman Catholic Church went wrong in its doctrine, and why the Protestant Reformation was necessary to return churches throughout the world to correct doctrine and biblical teaching. They are just as important today in evaluating a church and its teachings as they were then. In many ways, much of Protestant Christianity needs to be challenged to return to these fundamental doctrines of the faith, much like the reformers challenged the Roman Catholic Church to do in the sixteenth century.

They can just use the protestant boilerplate response.

If you disagree, claim that the source is speaking "metaphorically". Best applied when the source is speaking literally and repeats the literal for emphasis (See. John 6 25-59 for the best example of this).

But he is. You have listed me as such, because I use non-canonical texts.
Please stop twisting your theology to fit what you think it should be.
Catholicism only consideres what they choose to be "true" and all non-canonical, though inspired by "God" are not.
Are you going to refute this?
How do you know your texts are inspired by God? How do you know Thomas wrote the Gospel of Thomas?
If you ask me how I know the Catholic NT is, I would answer that, Christ started a Church and if you trace through historical evidence, you can see its the Catholic Church as we have it today. So I'm going to obviously listen to this Church ... since it came from Jesus Christ Himself. That's called real faith. Not a conspiracy secret hidden religion like so many of you think Jesus preached.

Religion and science...
A person is sick, the person prays and the person is cured.
A religious person looks at it and says, "God performed a miracle because of prayer!" That is the end of it.
A scientist looks at it in a very different way.
A scientist looks at it and says, "Prayer had nothing to do with it - there is a natural cause for what we see here. If we understand the natural cause, then we can heal many more people suffering from the same condition."
It is only by assuming that the belief in prayer is a superstition and therefore God is imaginary that science can proceed.
Its all BS!


If God has a purpose for everything that happens the way it does, his divine plan as christians believe, why do millions of christians pray billions of prayers everyday asking God to change something in his divine plan?

Most christians pray on sunday. Gods day off. Thats not very nice.

People selfishly pray for everything under the sun. Women pray for a sunny day for their wedding, while just 1 mile away farmers are praying for rain.

People pray that the hurricane bearing down on them will spare their house and change course and blow someone elses house down.

Its all so silly.....I never pray and life couldn't be better at 63.....no health issues, no money problems, great family. When I make a mistake I back up and take the right fork in the road. I don't waste my time endlessly mumbling man made phrases wanting God to do something.

Speaking of boilerplate, protestantism reminds me of going to Old Country Buffet...it's cheap, easy, you have a thousand things to choose from, there's some really crappy stuff, and only a few good items, but you're in charge and if you don't like what you grab, you can spit if out and try something else.

Black Thunder 42:
Language requires being educated. Modern education is very lacking, especially in our society.
Consider first, when people were taught how to think and express themselves. The high point in civilization is in the Medieval Ages, and is known as the basis of a "good" education. It is known as the Trivium.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trivium_ (education)
I have to agree to a point. I do not like the lack of communication of "written" language and the many different interpretations of the words in "english" language.
"Trivium" also disenfranchised "spirituality", dividing us into specific groups of specialty. That makes man dependent upon physical particulars of his existence, further depleting his spiritual self.
The commonality of spirit and love among mankind is overwhelmed by the individual need to survive in a "specialized" environment.

After Galileo, the Catholic Church found some reality. They are a great benefactor of science today. So yes, interesting.
But even the pro-science Catholic church doesn't talk about the science of God, just faith in God.
You know why of course. Sadly, many don't.
They do talk about that. But even you have to admit, science can only take us so far. It completely ignores the spiritual component of human beings. If it can't be proved in a science lab, they dismiss it as a theory at best.

As long as you and your cohorts confine God to a specific set of Books, you got it made. Its unfair that you get to design your own Christianity. We have to listen to the Church that Jesus Christ started. I bet your grandkids will have a funner Christianity than you. Besides Gay Marriage, what kind of Christianity will the next generation of sola scripturist introduce?
Just hand them a Bible and the sky is the limit.(Literally, the Sky IS THE LIMIT) God won't let you bring that made up theology up there. Its a shame you can't smuggle your highlighted Bible into judgement day so you can show Jesus how He was wrong and you were right. Tell Him why you insulted His Mother and His chosen Apostles! He might ask you why you would ever think He taught Bible Alone.... Just a heads up.

Who would want to worship a god that didn't have the same wills as the humans???

That would be a waste of time and energy.
