Start with the Eucharist. He undid what Jesus Christ started and all his Apostles taught.
Your husband also added a concept called Sola Scripture that Christ never taught.
From tat false teaching, he determined that Mary had other children (brothers and sisters?). That Peter was never the head of the Apostles and did not have any successors. He determined that the Beast is the Roman Catholic Church. He teaches that Catholics worship statues and Mary. He made up a scenario that everyone has the authority to interpret scripture and dictate what Our Lords ministry is.
This all began on a lie called Sola Scripture.
The changing of the Eucharist is the most dangerous.
It all began with the Bible?
Yep! Dangerous indeed if you are on the opposite side of the Bible.

Today, in the 21st century - we have "increased knowledge" - so that means we should re-write the Bible again.
I agree - in lieu of the recent 20th C. finds in Nag Hammadi and Qumram.
Unless you think - "God" isn't inspiring anyone anymore.

Still trying to answer the post, huh? Now you are you are taking authority over "God" and determining what "He" inspires.

Bold move. Based upon what I've read by men - that would be blasphemy. Shame on you.

Please show me where "God" specifically states that GoThomas is "not the knowledge of our Lord. God did not send it."
- FACT - No books on this planet were written by an god.
- FACT - per Christianity - judging is only for "God" to do. It looks like you took another bold move and decided to post this - "
ALL IT WILL ACCOMPLISH IS CONFUSION OF FACE...AND FOOLISHNESS."
- two "owies" GiF, and both in the same post. No worries, you still have time to correct your mistakes. Cheer up!

I'm in your corner, remember?

AH, HA! Now we have another Pharisee, who says "Jesus, why don't you come down from that Cross, and save yourself, so that we can ALL BELIEVE, that you are, who you say you are!!!
If Jesus wasn't a rebel towards his own religious leaders he would not have been put up on the cross now would he.

Remember (according to scriptures) it was a tiny crowd of people who determined his fate. Jesus or Barabas. The tiny crowd had a choice. 50-50. Heads or Tails.

If this man died on a cross, it had nothing to do with humanity, it had to do with being a rebel rouser, and an instigator. Why?

According to scriptures Jesus was loved by all throughout Judea. People followed him, they listened to him, and according to scriptures he performed life saving miracles for thousands of them..........yet a short time later, a crowd of people are ALL screaming for his death. What happened to his followers from just a short time before?

.....parts of this story make no common sense. Something is terribly wrong.

I HAD NO INTENTIONS OF AGREEING WITH WHAT YOU TEACH...

MY ANSWER WAS TO BRING GLORY TO GOD..NOT TO YOU...NOR YOUR

FOOLISHNESS...THAT YOU PROPAGATE,,

,IT IS NOT KNOWLEDGE IT IS INFORMATION..

.KNOWLEDGE COMES FROM GOD...

INFORMATION IS TRANSITORY

AND CHANGES WITH THE WIND....

KNOWLEDGE FROM GOD IS ETERNAL.

Very little of the story makes sense.

That's how the delusional god "saves" souls -- souls that were created by the delusional god in the first place.

It took hundreds of years and the Roman Empire to sort it all out.

**********

You know crowds better than that. Jesus told one crowd that they didn't follow Him for the teaching/miracles, but because He fed them. Self interest.

The crowd was not ALL screaming for His death. The faithful were afraid, but they 'stood afar off' looking on in horror.

It was the religious crowd, joined by the political leaders, and the lawyers who demanded His death.

Just as our nation today is being 'shouted down' by the weirdo's who want to legalize all manner of wickedness. Marx and Lenin said that the uninformed 'me too' bunch that can be used in such a manner were 'useful idiots'. The church calls them "the world".

The Bible says..

Ecc_10:8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.

You are breaking the hedge, not only for your self but as the head of you family, you are opening the hedge for them...

when you attack Christ,,

Just be warned...when you step out of the hedge that God has had around you...you are fair game for whatever the serpent/the enemy of you soul ....wants to do to you..

You should be making up the hedge not destroying it..

.for example ... from the Old Testament

Job 1:9 Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?

Job 1:10 --->Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

God said in
Eze_22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.

Your decision to war against God can be very detrimental to you and to your posterity and open up the gates of unanticipated destruction...

if you are open up the door to the*** thief...
___

The words of Jesus in

Joh 10:10 The ***thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy:

I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Our Lord's Return to Earth Again

Refrain
Oh, our Lord is coming back to earth again.

Satan will be bound a thousand years; we’ll have no tempter then,
After Jesus shall come back to earth again.

For the knowledge of the Lord shall fill the earth and sea and sky.
God shall take away all sickness and the sufferer’s tears will dry,
When our Savior will come back to earth again.

Oh, our Lord is coming back to earth again.
Yes, our Lord is coming back to earth again.
Satan will be bound a thousand years; we’ll have no tempter then,

And in all His holy mountain nothing hurts or shall destroy.
Perfect peace shall reign in every heart, and love without alloy,
After Jesus shall come back to earth again.

In a glorious reign with Jesus of a thousand years of peace.
All the earth is groaning, crying for that day of sweet release,
For our Jesus shall come back to earth again.

Why should I "waste my time" discussing or debating ANYTHING with you or any other bible only "buffoon" that has a "pre-determined indoctrination" of anti-catholic heresy, lies and deceit that has "'CORRUPTED your mind, heart and soul. I'll repeat it again:
Read the Catholic Catechism, and the Encyclicals which confirm and authenticate the TRUE TEACHINGS OF THE BIBLE----THE TRUE HISTORICAL CHURCH HISTORY WRITINGS ----and THE TRUE TEACHINGS OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, as they parallel, confirm, validate, and substantiate EVERYTHING that Jesus taught, proclaimed and handed down to HIS Apostles over 2000 years ago. READ IT ALL --jethro8!! Then you can go "argue, discuss and debate with yourself in front of a mirror"!!

The ONLY reason that you "fundies" want to discuss, debate or deliberate ANYTHING that has to do with TRUE BIBLE INTERPRETATION

You "fundies" in "desperation", attempt to come up with something----ANYTHING----- "concoted, and made-up", to go along with your editorialized (self interpreted) bible interpretation (or better yet mis-interpretation), by "making-it-up" as you go, legendary Church History.......... The TRUTH, has, is and will always be recorded, authenticated, verified and PROVEN TO BE TRUE by Apologist Historian authors and writers,(both Catholic and Protestant) that Jesus Christ (over 2000 years ago) formed and initiated ONE (and only one) TRUE (UNIVERSAL-CATHOLIC) Church in Matthew 16:13-21 and appointed St Peter (along with 2000 years of Apostolic Succession, to lead HIS CHURCH, until HE (Our Lord) returns the second time.
