All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.<quoted text>
Thanks RoSesz for your questions I am "very thankful" for being brought up in a "bible only" believing" Church, studying Sacred Scripture at Bible School, at a Christian University and in a pre-theological University seminary.... All were grounded in the Bible with University study offering an extensive research and study of 1500 years of Apostolic Church History, Apologistic authors and writers,and the biographical lives of the Saints prior to the Reformation. Yes--I had the faith and Salvation in Jesus Christ as a bible only Protestant, however what I experienced as Sola Scriptura Protestant teaching is "about as shallow", "superfluous" and is as SUPERFICIAL as it gets..... At best, it is "half-truth Christianity", riddled with condemnation and adverse judgment against the faith and salvation of "other Christians" especially Catholics.....The FULLNESS of the FAITH, The FULLNESS of the TRUTH and the OVERABUNDING COMPLETENESS of Gods GRACE was "definitely missing" in my bible only Protestant Church. In addition the REAL TRUTH of the Gospel was "notably absent",until I spent 3 years extensively studying the Historical and Biblical TRUTH that was "rejected" at the Protestant Reformation, beginning with Luther!! The TRUE Catholic Church initiated by Jesus HIMSELF, the TRUE Catholic Christian Faith, with Daily Mass and the Eucharist (Jesus' TRUE BODY AND BLOOD) has, for over 2000 years, been grounded and manifested in the TRUTH of Jesus Christ and HIS SAVING GRACE, began to opened up (for me) a Spiritual life of NEW FAITH, of REAL TRUTH and DAILY GROWTH in the Spirit of Jesus Christ, each day, at DAILY MASS, and the Eucharist........ The WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE, is in Jesus Christ HIMSELF, which has, is and will ALWAYS be manifested in HIS One True Apostolic Catholic Church...... I pray (RoSesz) that Our Lord, will "runited you" back to the TRUE FAITH in Jesus Christ and His Apostolic Catholic Church!!
This is the question I asked...the one you have avoided answering...because it reveals the Truth...
Quote: Since the man of God is "thoroughly furnished" by all scripture, inspired of God, unto good works....what else is necessary????!!!!
How can he be more "thoroughly furnished"????!!!!
