excuse me clay, but let me interject into this convdersation.<quoted text>
What??? Are you siding with Ox?
Listen Confrint, and every other non Catholic on here, its time you guys face a certain truth. Sola Scripture; scripture alone, without an Earthly authority; Jesus Christ established a Bible for GG Ministry and not a Church ... is false false false.
So until you can prove sola scripure as valid, all other discussions mean nothing because you're using the Bible out of context to make your points.
You're using a false premises to make a 'truthful' statement.
your church says that "sola scripture" is invalid, so lets see you and/or them PROVE IT!
Jesus tells us to live by of every Word that Proceeded out of His Mouth.
that is Scripture and your church has no Authority over jesus, It is supposed to be the other Way around, isnt it?
here is some marlakey(and it cant be called anything but that)to try and refute SS.
Passages misused in supporting Sola Scriptura
In the attempt to "prove" Sola Scriptura some passages are given a meaning they simply don't have.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.(2 Timothy 3:16)
This verse doesn't say anything about "only scripture."
THIS IS ABOUT AS STUPID AS STUPID CAN GET.LOL.
LOOK AT THE BEGINNING OF THAT bIBLE VERSE. IT SAYS [ALL].
SO JUST WHAT ELSE ARE CHRISTIAN SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW? IF NOT, THE WORD?
FOR IT IS WRITTEN; THE WORD WAS WITH GOD AND THE [WORD] WAS GOD.
as for me, along with Abraham, who heard the Word and journeyed to a far of land, i am going to follow the Scriptures[Word] and some day enter into that land of Canaan, which is my final rest.
but people like you, clay, can mock all you wish concerning those who follow the [Word] completely, if that is what you desire.
there is nothing on this Earth that has been given, that sets equally with the Bible.NOTHING!!!
