Not one word to be found on earth anywhere written by the supposed savior of all mankind ... Jesus.

What a scam.

You claim that Jesus the Jew came to save only "Christians" ... don't you?

That is the basis of Christianity.

No respected biblical scholar would ever suggest they wrote ANYTHING while Jesus was with them. Why are you pushing this nonsense?
----------
Jesus dictated seven letters for John to write to the churches. He never changes...so why would He not have instructed the other disciples the same?

I don't think it's intellectually honest for you to be sola scriptura when criticizing Catholic doctrine then discard it when you need to support some extra-biblical idea of yours.

Theology will be a bore

Come good Christians … own a Jew
We will play that game with you
We’ll tell you what you long to hear
That a god will hold you dear

Bring your money and your brain
That we will train for our domain
We will teach you how to fight
To defend with all your might

As theologians we are proud
That you follow us and preach so LOUD
There’ll come a day when you will see
We lied to you … you will agree

You’ll see that Jesus was a myth
As were all saviors meant to lift
To dominate emotions high
And take them soaring to the sky

When that day comes and come it will
You’ll free your selves from our swill
You will choose to fight no more
Theology will be a bore

Hail the size of golf balls
Tornadoes 'round the bend
Overflowing volcanoes
Hellfire is the trend

The god is on the warpath
Disease most everywhere
Evil through the devil
There is no time to spare

RUN RUN RUN

The end of time is drawing nigh
God's judgement day is near
Convert to Christianity
It will calm your fear

I'm a Protestant it's true
But I can be a Catholic too
Islam might be my next choice
Or Buddhism, if I hear the voice
It matters not which one I choose
As the only god will not refuse
My devotion day by day
With that one god I'll always play

WHY IS IT SO IMPORTANT FOR you to believe ...they WROTE NOT ONE WORD FOR THIRTY YEARS,...
Oral tradition. St. Paul never speaks of the 4 gospels, he talks about his oral preaching or letters. He writes to Churches that are well established and following the instructions given them by him and the apostles. The only time he mentions scripture is in reference to the OT. We know his letters were written a minimum of ten years after Christ's Ascension. I recommend you take the time to do some research.

Ok, and how were those converted when Jesus sent the seventy out?
They didn't have New Testaments, they preached with their mouths.

Truth, the Catholic Church didn't read the Bible, then form their theology around the Bible . The reason being, was because there wasn't a Bible to form around. The Apostles never set up a Bible. The writings, along with sacred tradition and the Church itself, flowed together in one breath.
It does no good to challenge everyone on scripture verses, since it takes an infallible authority to determine the authenticity anyway.

That faith comes by hearing the word of God? Marge, that line wasn't even written until decades after Christ's ascension. Contrary to what Rose keeps saying, Jesus never told anyone to write anything down.(And Clay never said that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John didn't write the Gospels. They just didn't write them while Christ was on earth.)
There was preaching, however. Preaching is oral; that's where the "hearing" part comes in.
Does this mean we're no longer bonded?
;)
Enjoy your program!
The oral preaching what was the oral preaching?, what did they say that converted people? we're still pinkys!:)

Don't get worked up on this
Anything ....not written is,WORD OF MOUTH.

IN MY suggestion..it was,conjecture based on the Times and the people ..I do not say it as biblical truth

We know they were written...not when..how ..how long to write them .

I was saying what makes,sense ..to me .

Word of mouth on the other hand ..I tell YOU A..You pass on a plus,B ..a,hundred years,later ..every one says you said ,A BC .

That word "peace" usually came as they preached and prayed for success in battle ... just before they took out the swords and guns and killed each other as heretics, infidels, et cetera.

The word of God! Hooray!!
But it was the oral word, not the written word, at least not the Gospels because they didn't exist yet. And that's what we've been talking about all this time, Marge. She was ordered not to talk to me, but they gave her permission to speak to Anthony, so it's just as well since we've both been saying the same thing.

So, you're right... faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
