True that.<quoted text>Clay, what you don't seem to understand is that the scriptures were 'God breathed', and were around well before the formation of the RCC. All of the scriptures were completed and being circulated amonst the churches. The catholic church was simply instrumental in putting these scriptures into a BOOK. Nothing more.
Those scriptures in the New Testament were already written. But not until 30-50 yrs after Jesus died.
As I pointed out, many writings were held dear to the early Church. Including that of the Apostolic fathers. Why wouldn't they be? Its a first hand account of what the Apostles actually taught, by people who walked with them. There can be no dispute.
Of course, you and many found a loophole by simply ignoring the letters of the Disciples of the Apostles. You created an idea that if it ain't in the New Testament,'we don't care'.
Well, thats irresponsible as a serious Christian.
