Anthony MN<quoted text>
The bible and the bible alone, and my private judgement of the meaning of the bible is contrary to every Christian witness for the first 15 centuries. Even Luther was inconsolable when he realized what he'd done.
Does it matter to you?
I think you are digging a put for yourself here.
Spiritually minded people are going to find the scriptures abundantly profitable. Its as simple as that.
Those who aren't spiritually minded but use the scriptures, may(or may not) come to understand much. And scriptures can and often begin the process of having a personal relationship with God, if they are searchers for Truth.
This makes scripture sufficient.
We must remember ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ.(St. Jerome).
