It's about time you ask questions.

"I accept Jesus' teachings."

"What is your authority to decide which truths God revelaed to anyone, in order to have the correct truths you think you have?"

Please post where "God" specifically states which texts are "of His inspiration" and which are not.

No Anthony, I pay attention very well.

I don't believe men. You seem to have a problem understanding this.

I do utilize men who were selected by Jesus, whereas, you don't and continue to refuse to. You on the other hand, chose to believe a select few of Jesus Apostles, and then place all your marbles on men who lie, cheat, caused many deaths through torture and hatred.

I'll stick to what I've learned about man and continue to believe that certain men didn't have a clue on what to believe, but loved to put forth their own musing to control and have other men believe what they did.

Please stop making up things about me that just isn't true..

You're going in a circle, NASL.

If you require God's list of inspired texts, claim that a lack of such a list then vitiates Anthony's reliance upon texts, it also vitiates your similar reliance upon any texts.

If Anthony cannot prove to your satisfaction that the canonical gospels are inspired, you certainly can't turn around and then claim that they aren't, or that yours are. You don't know.

"You can't prove to me that your stuff is inspired, so mine is and yours isn't". That's your argument.

What are you doing to the Word of God when you say "faith alone," "grace alone," "hope alone," etc.?

Are we accepting God and His Word?

Help me out here marge...if a person says they're saved at one particular moment and it's not immediately evident, or perhaps they commit some serious sin and continue unrepentantly in it, do you still believe they are saved?

James 2:19-20

19 You believe that there is one God. Good! <<<<<Even the demons believe that—and shudder.>>>>>

20 You foolish person, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?

***Even the demons believe that-and shudder.***

demons believe/faith - Are the demons going to heaven for ONLY having belief/faith???

Great NASL, you stick with your guys. And for some reason, even though I rarely, if ever, direct a post to you, for some reason you feel obligated to constantly reply to posts I've made to others. It's almost as though you take personal offense at their inability to respond to me. I'd prefer you didn't do that, thank you very much.

Its important for you not to design your own Christianity. This forum should have made many of you realize the sin of Luther, but you guys think the man's a hero? You follow his man made doctrines that could only have come from the devil. Think about it, wouldn't the devil like you to believe that Jesus Christ is the savior of the world, but do nothin for him in return? Heck, that's exactly what Satan believes. Think about that next time oldg opens up his yap trying to be an authority on scripture.

Why do you reject the teaching of Jesus and attempt to assume your catechism into God's word
Why do YOU reject the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 16:13-21 regarding HIS ONE TRUE APOSTOLIC UNIVERSAL (Catholic) CHURCH
Acts 2 confirms HIS CHURCH as heiarchical, authoritative and visible with (quote) "Bishops, priests, elders and deacons". All through the New Testament EVERY ONE of the Early Churches beginning with the 1st Church at Antioch where headed by one of the Apostles (as a Bishop) meaning overseer, followed by Galacia, Ephesus, Thessalonica, Corinth, Colossus, Philippi, and on and on (ALL with Bishops, priests, elders and deacons. IN ADDITION: Why do YOU reject the teachings of Jesus in John 6:47-59 regarding HIS TRUE BODY AND TRUE BLOOD in the Eucharist.(quote)" For my body is REAL FOOD and my blood in REAL DRINK"--and without it "you CANNOT have eternal life". You Confrinting, just continue to "make up and invent" your own twisted, perverted, heretical biblical interpretation of God's Word and Church History whenever and wherever it CONVENIENTLY "fits into" your vengeance, hatred and hostile anti-catholic preaching. You do NOT speak for God--and NEVER WILL until you come to TRUE SALVATION in Jesus Christ.

Its like this: if a husband says to his wife 'I love you but I'm not coming home tonight on our anniversary, I'm partying with my friends. Btw I also got a girl pregnant'
He may very well love his wife, but he didn't do anything to show it. Protestants man-made doctrine of faith alone via sola scripture made people think that all they needed to do was believe; have faith and they're saved.
That analogy I used above (from relevant radio) should be clear to you.... That woman will still love her husband but the doors will be locked when he returns home.
Tell me what this teaches you...

Ac 16:30 And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? 31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

I have found no humility here in this forum from any Roman Catholic
All I have found is arrogance and refutation of the word of God.
From the very first day that you came on this forum Confrinting, just remember that when you hypocritically accuse, condemn, judge and point a finger at another Christian-especially a Catholic--your "thumb" is pointing (directly back at you). Wake up--Confrinting!!!!!

100% proof private interpretations of sacred scripture is the will of the devil and not Christ Jesus. How many more cults need to pop up before you fanatics get it. You're not an authority on scripture, you can not undo the the word of God by inserting your own opinions on His teachings.
The Bible is the product of yrs of Catholic tradition. It was compiled from a series of councils by the authoritative teaching Magisterium set up by the Apostles. The Apostles set up this Church and never once commanded them to form a Christian Bible. That's why it took 300 yrs to form one. Fyi, this came AFTER Constantine was already dead.(more facts that destroys your theology)
The Protestant Bible- which I assume you use- is the result of a handful of heretics who removed 7 of the sacred books without authority from God.
Do you really believe this is from the devil???

Joh 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.

But you're still interpreting Gods word. The Bible still needs to be interpreted. How do you know you're coming to Biblical truth? Also, how many Books of the Bible do you consider 'Gods word'?
What if God wants you to pray for the dead- which is alluded to in the KJV NT, but blatantly spelled out in the OT scriptures in the Books the reformed removed? To me, that doesn't make sense to say you're trying to follow Gods word as He states it, but not using all the Books.(nor the oral instructions from the Apostle, which is ALSO Gods word).
No interpretation....if that is what you are doing, you are not being led by the Holy Spirit...as promised by Jesus..

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

The authority comes from the Spirit of Truth to search the Scriptures ourselves to see whether or not someone is speaking the truth.
