“In his opposition to accepting the Florentine canon and the equalization of traditions with Holy Scripture, Seripando did not stand alone. In the particular congregation of March 23, the learned Dominican Bishop Bertano of Fano had alreadyexpressed the view that Holy Scripture possessed greater authority than the traditions because the Scriptures were unchangeable; that only offenders against the biblical canon should come under the anathema, not those who deny the principle of tradition; that it would be unfortunate if the Council limited itself to the apostolic canons, because the Protestants would say that the abrogation of some of these traditions was arbitrary and represented an abuse… Another determined opponent of putting traditions on a par with Holy Scripture, as well as the anathema, was the Dominican Nacchianti. The Servite general defended the view that all the evangelical truths were contained in the Bible, and he subscribed to the CANON OF ST. JEROME, as did also Madruzzo and Fonseca on April 1. While Seripando abandoned his view as a lost cause, Madruzzo, the Carmelite general, and the Bishop of Agde stood for the LIMITED CANON, and the bishops of Castellamare and Caorle urged the related motion to place the books of Judith, Baruch, and Machabees IN THE "canon ecclesiae." From all this it is evident that Seripando was by no means alone in his views. In his battle FOR THE CANON OF ST. JEROME and against the anathema and the parity of traditions with Holy Scripture, he was aligned with the leaders of a minority that was outstanding for its theological scholarship.”

I just asked your opinion.
If I die a true born again believer who was even baptized. I don't believe we need to be baptized to go to Heaven but if I'm wrong do you think that would keep me out of Heaven even though the fact is I was baptized?
How hard is a YES or No answer....
A yes or no answer based on your question is impossible because I'm not God.

You were/are correct.
According to your assessment of the issue, I am no longer correct.

When I was under the spell of religion I believed that Jesus was a real man who preached of love, but was not a savior.

Now I believe that the Character of Jesus and his apostles, et cetera was a staged play created by the ex-Jew Christians to start a new religion.

Without that savior tale (which was re-warmed from other savior-myth tales in other religions)... there would BE no Christianity ... no popes sitting on thrones beating their drums of (truth) as they excommunicated each other ... no Martin Luther salivating to marry his beloved to in turn start the Protestant religion ... no Joseph Smith claiming to restore the new testament back to its original "truth" ... et cetera.

Imagine all the killing that could have been avoided had there been no religion over which to shed blood!

<quoted text>I disagree, for the very fact of what Jesus said in Luke 24:44. Also, it's not a proven fact, that the OT Canon came "after" Christianity. Some speculate the OT Canon was closed at Jamnia, however, some say it was closed during the Hasmonean Dynasty. Look into that. I agree Christ established a Church, however, the word "church" means Ekklesia, which is not a isolated reference or code name for your Rcc. Also, if you do a word search, on a Bible search engine, the words "the church" are in reference to many established "church-es". The are many, but one, no different than the Trinity being 3 in 1.
I don't get you guys. There are just so many discrepancies from generation to generation and from minister to minister. There is no continuity.

This doesn't sound like the 'church' you claim Christ started.

I would never disagree with the early Christian writers on Dogma and sacred teachings from the Apostles.
The early popes disagreed with each other over who the god ordained should sit on the throne.

Religion is bunk, and that includes your religion.

From the book,“History of Christianity,” by Clyde L. Manschreck … comes the following ……..

With two popes reigning during the Great Schism, each anathematizing the other, many voices cried for reform, among them Conrad of Geinhausen, Heinrich of Langenstein, Peter of Ailli, John Gerson, and Nicholas of Clemanges. The agitation for a reforming council became so great that the cardinals of both Popes finally issued a call in Piza in 409. Neither the Pope of Avignon nor the one at Rome attended. Pisa declared both of them deposed, and elected Alexander V to be Pope. But the Popes at Avignon and Rome refused to be deposed, so that Christendom was faced with the spectacle of three Popes. The situation was intolerable.

Philo the Jewish philosopher (20BC-AD40) never once quotes from the Apocrypha
Josephus the Jewish historian (AD30-100) specifically identifies the 22 books which equate to the Protestant canon (Antiquities, Against Apion 1:8).
The Jews acknowledged the cessation of prophecy with Malachi ca.400BC
Christ's division of Scripture (Luke 24:44) into the three classes accepted by the Jews (the Law, the Prophets and the Psalms) endorses the Jewish canon.
To the Jews were committed 'the very words of God'(Romans 3:2) and Christians receive these oracles from them.
The Essenes and Qumranite Jews around the time of Christ had Tobit and Sirach in their Scriptures.

The Sadduccees had only the Books of the Torah.
Isaiah and Daniel were not considered scripture by them...

If official Jewish canon came AFTER Christianity.

<quoted text>Stop mischaracterizing me.
If you are in religion, you have the opinion that your religion has improved you a step higher than others.

People don't belong to religions unless it makes them feel superior in their journey to other poor dumb uninitiated slobs.

Do you think the dalai lama believes that HE is one of those "untouchables" and that the supposed untouchables are "enlightened?"

Get real!

It's not religion that the devout adherers yearn to save. It's their own BRAND of religion that they hold dear to their selves that they believe needs to be protected and nurtured for upcoming generations.

Nit a religion. REALLY ??
Always felt that it was...it is churches and all.
My guess is, people that refer to their selves as Atheists and in turn start up a church, are making a mockery OF religion by playing the same games played by those IN religion.

Look Oxbow
There is belief you have in your head..You are taught something ..say theology about Jesus ..You believe it.
But there is also the belief from your heart and soul..a movement within your spirit toward Him..a belief that it Was HIS SHED BLOOD is the ONLY source of salvation ...the only atonement needed to take your sins as,far from you as the east is to the west .
To say it's a feeling gives it less meaning maybe ...But it is your soul answering the CALLING of the SPIRIT ...the knowing that Christ is your only salvation..You REPENT and give your heart to Him
There is a big difference between knowing something and believing EITH your head
And believing and knowing in your heart and soul .
Excellent. Well said.

If you again become a Protestant, will you lead others down a wrong path???

After all, you believed that Jesus came to save you when you were a Protestant ... didn't you???

And these days isn't THAT all that matters to the god that once favored ONLY the Jews but now favors only Christians???

You are a despicable creature to believe that others are full of demons and you are holy.
