[quote:2btuaqmv]hey, i grew up with an evangelical protestant upbringing, and was convinced, but not ignorant that it was right…and that God’s word is the basis of our lives, and is what we should live by alone. but i’ve been reading a lot of posts on this site, and some info on the main page, and i honestly didnt’ know that the bible wasn’t complete until after Jesus’ death. That, and a lot of other things have really made me think. I wouldn’t say i’m quite ready to switch over, but it’s definitely in the back of my mind. one thing i want to ask the moderators especially, is the fact that evangelical faith is largely based on the bible verse where Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life…[b:2btuaqmv]no one [/b:2btuaqmv]gets to the Father but by me.” …What’s the Catholic view of that verse…? because although, like most of you say, the bible alone isn’t the way to go, i would think that atleast much of the bible is legitimate to live a Christian life by, and that seems like a very blunt, clear-cut verse…let me know your thoughts….[/quote:2btuaqmv]
ctdmsl forgive me for not answering your question (Victor and Benedict already did a great job doing that) but I just want to thank you for the way you asked this very good question.
You see, we Catholics usually get “questions” from protestants that are really intended just to attack and not find out information or the other¬¥s point of view. I guess I should be used to it by now (and most of the time I am) but this last couple of days I have read so many attacks in the form of “questions” by protestants in other Catholic websites that it was starting to get frustating.
That is why it was so refreshing to me to read an actual question (a good one also) intended to really find out information and presented in a respectful manner, so again… Thank You ” title=”Very Happy” />
