Adam what ever faith you are you are an uneducated one of whatever you believe.<quoted text>
First of all I am not a Catholic. I merely was admiring the logic and arguments made in the above post.
The problem with protestant fundies is that they have very poor thinking skills. Protestants typically pick and choose what they believe through private interpretation. Any reasonable person can see the flaw with this. To give an example Martin Luther added the word "alone" to Romans 3:28 to teach his private interpretation of scripture that you are saved by faith alone and not by works. Delusional protestant fundies have no problem with private interpretation, and this is why there is 42000 denominations. This makes no sense. You should really ask yourself why there are so many denominations, and why this is a good thing to be so divided?
RO 3:28 For we maintain that a man is justified by faith apart from works of the Law.a
Protestant Churches do not as you say believe in private Interpretation.
They believe in Sola Scriptoria or only use scripture to form doctrine.
WE beleive that tradition is fine but not be used to define doctrine only Scripture.
Luther did not believe in Private Interpretation, that is why he posted his thesis on the church door which was the bulletin board of his day for people to critique his Ideas theory's in light of the Bible.
I don't believe he inserted alone in Romans 3 28 but it does not change the meaning of the verse above had he.
My German is weak but my mother is fluent and she has an old Lutherean German Bible I have her checking.
