I did read my Bible. A lot!who="Clay"
Are you saying, Kay, that you worship the Bible?
Are you calling Paul's letters to the Church @ Corinth, JESUS?
That is insanity.
You people have done so much damage to sacred scripture its sickening.
I said "BIBLE", Clay, not "Pauline Epistles". However, the CC claims to have given us the Bible. If they didn't approve Paul, WHY did they include him???
Peter, who is supposed to be your leader, said that all scripture was given by God, written as He inspired it. Peter said that, Our BELOVED brother, Paul...wrote of many things HARD TO UNDERSTAND which unstable souls wrest (twist) TO THEIR OWN DESTRUCTION.
Peter spoke honorably of Paul. I don't trust those who discredit either of them.
I worship God/Jesus, Who IS the Word of God. What He says, not what somebody SAYS that He says... I don't know whether is it still their stand, but at one time they told their people that reading the Word was dangerous; only the priest could interpret it.
Read your Bible, Clay. Let IT be your guide. Scripture says that ALL the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in HIM (the Word). It reveals things past our knowledge. The meaning of ten names in one chapter of the Old Testament reveal the gospel story before Jesus is mentioned. Our knowledge/understanding is imperfect, but He brings us to understanding if we seek Him.
Seek See the 'ASK'
I don't come to the same conclusions about scripture as you.
Hey, are you cooking a turkey today? Or you guys going someplace else? Either way, have a happy Thanksgiving!
