Why would you need any other earthly authority other than the elders of the local church?<quoted text>
Do you really believe God would give us the scriptures without an earthly authority to safeguard and interpret them?
You do know the Bible wasn't published until October 22nd, 1452. Before then, the Prestons, Confrints and you did not have one sitting on your night stand. The Sacred scriptures were found inside the Churches with the Church protecting them. I respect your sincere zeal for Jesus and some of the Bible, but you aren't an authority to decide what the Apostles taught. I mean, they already explained what they wrote. I don't understand why you guys remove the word of God that they already revealed.
There are NO earthly headquarters....
