The pope is the unquestioned leader of a large part of the earth's population.

But this is changing rapidly as we are able to communicate with each other without fear of repercussions from this powerful political entity that falsely calls itself a church.

The questioning of the church by early Christians eventually stopped.

And this is logical considering all of those who disagreed with the Roman version of Christianity were systematically tortured and murdered over the centuries to protect the so-called one true church! This continued until the fear of the church was so inculcated in the populace that no one dared to question it's insanity! Until now.

Now that all of us can speak out safely the Roman Catholic Church's days are numbered!

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.

Then Our Lord Jesus Christ is also a liar. Because He promised to be with them til the end.

Also, if what you're saying is true, then Jesus started a secret hidden church, and didn't reveal it til the printing of the Bible in 1450 AD. Thus paving the way for 42,000 future Christian sects.

So which one of you is right?

your church says that "sola scripture" is invalid, so lets see you and/or them PROVE IT!

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!!!

Clay, you probably know this already, but some may not. Oxbow has been playing games for quite some time now. We ran him off a few months ago and he slithered over to the 'what divides' board until they got sick of him and stopped replying. The best thing any of us can do is ignore his juvenile posts. He has no interest in meaningful conversation.

Nice picture of your grandson Preston.

2 Tim. 3:14 - Protestants usually use 2 Tim. 3:16-17 to prove that the Bible is the sole authority of God's word. But examining these texts disproves their claim. Here, Paul appeals to apostolic tradition right before the Protestants' often quoted verse 2 Tim. 3:16-17. Thus, there is an appeal to tradition before there is an appeal to the Scriptures, and Protestants generally ignore this fact.

2 Tim. 3:15 - Paul then appeals to the sacred writings of Scripture referring to the Old Testament Scriptures with which Timothy was raised (not the New Testament which was not even compiled at the time of Paul's teaching). This verse also proves that one can come to faith in Jesus Christ without the New Testament.

2 Tim. 3:16 - this verse says that Scripture is "profitable" for every good work, but not exclusive. The word "profitable" is "ophelimos" in Greek. "Ophelimos" only means useful, which underscores that Scripture is not mandatory or exclusive. Protestants unbiblically argue that profitable means exclusive.

2 Tim. 3:16 - further, the verse "all Scripture" uses the words "pasa graphe" which actually means every (not all) Scripture. This means every passage of Scripture is useful. Thus, the erroneous Protestant reading of "pasa graphe" would mean every single passage of Scripture is exclusive. This would mean Christians could not only use "sola Matthew," or "sola Mark," but could rely on one single verse from a Gospel as the exclusive authority of God's word. This, of course, is not true and even Protestants would agree. Also, "pasa graphe" cannot mean "all of Scripture" because there was no New Testament canon to which Paul could have been referring, unless Protestants argue that the New Testament is not being included by Paul.

2 Tim. 3:16 - also, these inspired Old Testament Scriptures Paul is referring to included the deuterocanonical books which the Protestants removed from the Bible 1,500 years later.

2 Tim. 3:17 - Paul's reference to the "man of God" who may be complete refers to a clergyman, not a layman. It is an instruction to a bishop of the Church. So, although Protestants use it to prove their case, the passage is not even relevant to most of the faithful.

2 Tim. 3:17 - further, Paul's use of the word "complete" for every good work is "artios" which simply means the clergy is "suitable" or "fit." Also, artios does not describe the Scriptures, it describes the clergyman. So, Protestants cannot use this verse to argue the Scriptures are complete.

The problem with allowing anybody to read and interpret the bible on their own without guidance is obvoius when one sees people like Oxbow run around leading people astray.

You believe you are an authority on scripture. But if sola scriptura is your belief and therefore private interpretation, you have no right or authority to tell anyone else (who also testify that they have the same calling by God as you do), that their interpretation is wrong.

The Audacity of Pope
I used to believe that the Protestants had a more humble, God-honoring approach, and that the Catholics had an indefensibly high view of the human element within the Church. Things like the succession of the apostolate, the authority of the Church, the so-called “infallibility” of the pope – all of this stuff seemed to me to form a borderline blasphemous package that vaunted and exalted mere human beings at the expense of Christ and His work.
Yet in time, although I saw my previous perspective as eminently understandable, it became clear that it had been an understandable misunderstanding; a misunderstanding that had the peculiar effect of causing me to see things upside down. What I came to recognize, in other words, was that the Catholic position was in actuality the much more humble of the two. Indeed, it was downright self-effacing. For the Catholic position, paradoxically, was that it is precisely because mere men can claim no genuine spiritual authority that the successors of the apostles could claim it; and, in particular, it is precisely because no man can possibly be infallible that the bishop of Rome had to be.
http://www.calledtocommunion.com/2012/08/the-...
I read much of what your article here is part of,interesting,and you know under different circunstances of what has resulted in the formation of your Roman Catholicism,we all as Christians are deep down wanting Communion between all of like mind in Christ.

That has already been achieved in the Spirit,we cannot as sinful beings unite ourselves in the Spirit,without a transformation of our own ambitions and desires in Christ.

Jesus first also promised His Disciples:"Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your a d v a t a g e that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper(Comforter) will not come to you. But if I go, I will send Him to you."
JOHN 16:7.

But again Regina we have a dilemna which has been the main source of separation between all Christians in this physical realm.Paul the Apostle brings it out somewhat in this verse from Romans 7:"Who will free me from this life that is dominated by S I N and death? Thank God! The anser is in Jesus Christ our Lord. So you see how it is: In my mind I really want to obey God's law but because of my sinful nature I am a slave to sin."(Romans 7:25).

It takes T I M E for good fruit to cultivate in a believer,and that complicates the unity of the overall assembly of the righteous,in that we all face the same challenges in dealing with the flesh and the spirit within us all.

AND that has a great deal to do with the whole C h u r c h,every facet of it.

I have not been in a Protestant church that does not teach the gospel,the morals of life,the direction of the Holy Spirit and the confirmation of the Word of God in regards to the Guiding and direction of the Holy Spirit,so that is what unifies us all in the basic teachings of Scripture,and the work of the Spirit in the life of a believer.

The infallibility of the Word,is that Christ died,Christ Rose, and Christ will come again for His own.We all teach this,and some with more clarity than others.

Fruit does not magically appear but rather it is grown and cultivated over time. Fruit is how we measure spirituality.Not trying harder but cultivating the fruit of the Holy Spirit.Now that can be applied to the Corporate extent of the Body of Christ.It is first to the individual believer than it is corporately.Continued:

sorry, but I dont have the liability to disprove your false theology of [sola scripture] not being scriptual.

that statement is rediculous, to say the least that it isnt Scriptual.

the bottom line is this, how can you Clay, say that you have to lead your life by something that Jesus said 2,000 years ago, yet you dont even know what it is, since it wasnt written down.

see how rediculous that is to people with some knowledge and ability to THINK for themselves, unlike your response to oxbow, in which you basically said, yeah, i know what I think, let me look it up from a catholic apologist magazine, and I will tell you.

and so the bottom line is this clay et al, you risk your soul for something not written down and mock those of us who choose to listen to His Word and follow IT!

for some reason, Luke the Author of Two of the Gospels doesnt agree with you and false theology.

Inasmuch as many have undertaken to compile an account of the things accomplished among us, just as they were handed down to us by those who from the beginning were eyewitnesses and servants of the word, it seemed fitting for me as well, having investigated everything carefully from the beginning,[[[to write it out for you in consecutive order, most excellent Theophilus; so that you may know the exact truth about the things you have been taught." Luke 1:1-4]]].

to write it out for you.

so you may know the exact truth.

not one mention of you ,clay ,to need anything else but what is written so YOU may know the exact truth.

but I really dont beleive that you will accept that for one simple reason.

IT IS SOLA SCRIPTURE AND STANDS ON ITS OWN, UNLIKE WHAT YOUR CHURCH WISHES TO DISCLAIM.

No. The bible is an authority, but it cannot be the ONLY authority because we MUST get it right. And if two people who claim to be led by the Holy Spirit have contradictory 'biblical' positions, we MUST be able to tell who's right. If Clay uses the bible only and you use the bible only, it's a stalemate.

Jesus NEVER intended for us to be left in a stalemate. He founded a Church with authority (keys, bind and loose, etc.).
