I'm sure if the Apostles would have foresaw the chaos that would ensue once their writings were published, they would have took the time to dot every I and cross every T. Imo.
They didn't even know they were writing a Bible. They established a Church like the Lord commanded. Yes they were warned of wolves and strange gospels. But 45,000 tearing apart every little sentence they penned?? No way could they have envisioned such a thing. I've heard people argue about one word in one verse, in one chapter of one book, in one of the Apostles letters. You've got to be out of your mind if you think this is how the Lord willed for truth to be conveyed. Yes we Catholics call the scriptures the word of God, and it definitely is. But every little punctuation mark?? God didn't tell them word for word what to pen. That's why I say, the evangelical approach to scripture is flawed from the get go.

Sounds like Sola Scripture...

I challenge you to do a study on faith scriptures. Faith is a gift of God. Scripture declares that 'the just shall LIVE by faith'. Jesus was appalled at the lack of faith, even in His disciples. He was astounded at the faith of the Centurion, saying that He had not found such faith in Israel.

'Faith with out works is dead', means simply that IF you truly have faith, it will be revealed/proven by your deeds.

...and you find the need to change your name. Why?
Doesn't matter. You can play whomever you choose.
"Somebody has to be infallible when discerning the teachings of Jesus Christ, right?"
- Yes - I asked where "God" - the only infallible being I know of - and where "He" stated such.
So far, Dan admitted that there isn't any, which I agree with. It also shows support that any biblical texts written is also "inspired".
Do you have something other than an agreement that all texts are inspired?
<quoted text>
It exists. Therefore it is authentic.
You stated:
"As far as I know, there is no proof that the gnostic gospel of Thomas is authentic."
- sounds like you have limited your own Self in doing proper research on the topic.
There is plenty of agreement that 2 Timothy is not by "Paul", but yet you accept it to be "Paul".
There is plenty of agreement that Luke, a 3rd generation disciple, wrote decades after Jesus died, and you accept him as "gospel" writer, when clearly Thomas is older than Luke.
"Paul" is only an Apostle in his eyes - based upon a vision. Yet you think he is more enlightened than Jesus.
Just further evidence that Christianity is an incomplete and contradictory belief when they say "We follow Jesus".
Would you like some ketchup with your bologna?

Again, Jesus Christ set up a Church that He promised the gates of Hell would never prevail against. This Church HAS to be infallible when it comes to His teachings. Otherwise He's either a lunatic or a liar.(I think CS said that)

Question: If you can't trust 'every little punctuation mark' that the disciples WHO HEARD JESUS' TEACH USED,

Then, HOW CAN YOU TRUST THE PUNCTUATION MARKS OF ALL THOSE OTHER WRITERS, many of whom DID NOT hear Jesus ???

One thing, the apostles did not write these books. Not one gospel. I they had, the gospels would be narratives from eyewitness accounts. U know ,like, "I" did this, "I" said that, "I" heard this", "we" went there, "we" sat with him, I'm sure U catch my drift. The gospels are written as an outsider looking in. So when U said that the apostles didn't know that they were writing the books, no!, if they wrote them the narrative would be more 1st person.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS NOT MENTIONED IN THE SCRIPTURES..
So WHERE in the Scriptures do you find the words "trinity or bible, bible only, Sola Scriptura, Apostles Creed, Nicene Creed, the Canon of Scripture, etc...... You, "fundies" keep insisting that the bible is ONE and ONLY (final authority ---and---that "everything" MUST be in the bible in order for it to be true"....... Not only does the Bible (NEVER) say that, the Bible tells us that the CHURCH is the FINAL AUTHORITY...... Paul says it in his letter to Timothy in I Timothy 3:15 where he calls "THE CHURCH (not the bible alone) the pillar, pinnacle and foundation of the TRUTH"...... When there is a dispute, argument or disagreement, Paul says to "take it to the Church" (not the bible)........ You keep operating under a "false presupposition" (a premise you cannot prove) that (everything) MUST be in the Scriptures in order for it to be true! YET---the Scriptures (NEVER) says this nor does it ever teach such a thing!!!

It would help your cause if your limited your teachings to what can be verified in the Bible.

Jesus told the devil ....

Mat_4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

Luk_4:4 And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone,

but by every word of God.

(I will say it to you that sides with the devil...)

and dispute what Jesus said,....

your fables and myths did not come from the mouth of God

So what is it about Revelation that says that the kingdom of the Lord shall reign in the last days?! I mean, is the entire book wrong or were the writers just confused about which kingdom shall come and when?! Still everyone is claiming that the Catholic church is the church set up by Jesus but no one has yet given an accurate description in scripture that nods towards this. Not anyone!! But yet U still contend and defend that Jesus set up the Catholic church, even against all evidence in scripture and history that points in another direction. Hmmm!!
