Please tell me:
- since St Thomas is considered inspired, and I understand that "God" only inspired a few select people and Thomas was one of them -- where is it written, by "God", that states that Thomas' gospel is not inspired?
Thanks!
Uhhh,you understand that God only inspired a few select people? Well do tell. We understand that anyone under the influence and guidance of the Holy Spirit can be inspired. Any person,man or woman under the influence of the Holy Spirit can be inspired to even teach Gods word ACCURATELY. To teach the word of God ACCURATELY requires inspiration from the Holy Spirit thus it is an inspiration from God. So no my friend, there's more than a few people that God inspires. Scripture even tells us that in the last days God would pour out of His Spirit and both sons and daughters shall prophesy. Prophesy means to teach. Teach what? Teach Gods word. They will be teaching what the prophets wrote etc, etc. That is a form of being inspired and that is done by the influence of the Holy Spirit.

Its highly unlikely the Apostle Thomas wrote the 'Gospel of Thomas'. Most scholars think it was penned by men in the 2nd century.

Regardless, all scripture relied on a group to label it as 'inspired'. The Bible never instructs us on what Books belong in it. In Christianity, it took the authority of the Catholic Church at the councils of Laodicea, Carthage, Rome and Hippo to finalize the Biblical canon in the 4th century.

One must try the spirits. How do you try the spirits? By the word of God. If they don't align with the word of God then..........

No - men of this world elect a Pope.
Oh ... but the next part of the story is that "god" worked his magic THROUGH the minds of the men to choose the "righteous" pope to in turn sit on the throne and judge sinners (excluding his self and his followers of course.)

Where's that old coot called OldJG that used to be wasting time trying to elucidate on the scriptures. Haven't heard from him in some time.
I don' tend to really read most of these posts so if he happened to post in my abscence, then I may have missed what he posted because as I stated I don't really read most of these posts.
Last I heard he got called home. I'm not sure if that meant home as to lend an ear to a nagging wife, or home as in eternal hellfire in a hereafter.

What answer would you like? Maybe I can give a shot or two at the bulls eye. But rumor has it that my aim ain't what it used to be when I was still in religion.

That's really hard ta believe, when it destroyed it all in a flood.
That's not love, it is eliminating erred experiment.
And that's not the worst of it. It saved a handfull of the erred experiment(how foolish is that) to duplicate the errors, and now threatens it with another annihilation in revelations.
Can't your deity get anything tight?

Lets be honest. Every protestant here has stated the Holy Spirit is guiding them to all truth when they read the bible. They don't give a hoot if they're the successor of St. Peter (especially since they think he wasn't even a very good disciple), they've got what he had and even more. In fact, they claim even MORE authority to infallibly interpret God's will than those Borgia popes you so love to bring up. So don't act like you're impressed by the claim of St. Peter's successor, many of your cohorts think they're the reincarnation of St. Paul. Lol.
The claims of Protestant and Catholic preaching can be judged ..IMO..
Does it contradict the bibles.

But we had been speaking originally in this,discussion
On the statement of infallibility

And direct succession to Peter. As making the CC the only true
CHURCH which is a bit at odds with the purpose stated for Vatican 2
