HOJO says..........he Bible "never says anywhere" that the Bible alone (Sola Scriptura) is the word of God, if fact the Bible says just the opposite. Paul says that we must obey Tradition (the unwritten oral word) as well as the written.<quoted text>
I believe that Sacred Scripture and Tradition (together) is the Word of God. "Verbum Dei". The Bible "never says anywhere" that the Bible alone (Sola Scriptura) is the word of God, if fact the Bible says just the opposite. Paul says that we must obey Tradition (the unwritten oral word) as well as the written. For over 1600 years this has been a Biblical Teaching of Jesus Christs One True Apostolic Catholic Church,(that is until) the Protestant Reformation when a group of contradicting and inconsistent Protestant Reformers, totaling more than 48 radical (Prodigal Son) "self-interpreting" anti-catholic bible only "buffoons" beginning with Luther, began to "make things up"!! Sola Scriptura was never believed by ANYONE until the 17th century. It is a "man-made doctrine" of "personal opinionated" (half-truth, half-heresy" Christianity that has absolutely no basis of ANY biblical or historical truth!!!
Michael says; Whose unwritten oral word? Popes that claimed in the 1800s and again in the 1950s that they were infallable?
You know yourself HOJO over the centuries there have been good popes and bad popes making oral tradition and God has allowed them. You know that.
Not everyone loves Pope Francis: Conservative Catholics voice concern over 'revolutionary' message
.....Six months after he was installed on the Throne of St. Peter, the pontiff's comments in a series of interviews are being denounced in scattered conservative catholic corners as "reckless" or even "borderline heretical."
....... Steve Skojec, 35, from Manassas, Va., who said a scathing blog post he wrote about the pope's recent remarks got 20,000 views, compared with the usual 500. "There are more and more people who are feeling uncomfortable."
The roman catholic church today in the western world is going through a rapid change from conservatism to liberalism.
