I don’t need a reason to believe that the Bible is the authority over any Koran or other Book – it has no errors – and needs no explaination that you would believe –
YOU say it has no errors. IT doesn’t even say it has no errors. Matthew’s gospel never makes such a claim, for example. [/quote:3avjv0tf]
The difference is, as Matthew tells us in 22:29- You are mistaken because you don’t know Scriptures”
in other words whether you believe it or not changes nothing about the truthfulness of Scriptures-
That’s like me saying “whether you believe it or not, the Church is infallible”. It might be TRUE, but it isn’t an argument. It is just another empty tautological fallacy. [/quote:3avjv0tf]
I can only tell you the truth, if you choose to believe it, well that determines whether you what to be saved or not
It simply is God’s word and that is good enough for me
Which you only believe because you were born in an area where Christianity is strong. Had you been born in the Middle East, you would have believed in the Koran, and, if someone had tried to push the Bible onto you, you would say “the Koran is the Word of God and that is good enough for me”. Your reasoning is useless. [/quote:3avjv0tf]
The origin of someone doesn’t matter – Romans 1 tells us “we are all without excuse.” The important thing is where we will go…. [color=red:3avjv0tf]Man is destined to die and then comes judgement[/color:3avjv0tf] – Hebrews 9:27 The only useless reasoning is by those of whom reject Jesus’s only free gift of salvation for pride or bullheadedness or any other reason.
Whereas what book has a god that died and rose up again like the Bible?
I’m sure there are plenty, but if it bothers you, I’ll write one. Will you then believe that book also? And besides, that only happens in four books–the Gospels. Why do you trust in those particular gospels (there are other stories of Christ’s mission) and why do you believe that the many letters and epistles are inspired, and how have you decided which ones are inspired? [/quote:3avjv0tf]
Sorry pal, but we are instructed not to add to the Bible which is just another evidence of false religions. The Mormons, JW’s and Catholics all have their “extra’s” which are full of contraditorary instructions. I’ve already told you that the Bible stands alone in truth and accuracy – proofs found to be 100% accurate – They are proof in themselves. But to simplify it [b:3avjv0tf][u:3avjv0tf]B[/u:3avjv0tf][/b:3avjv0tf] – Basic[b:3avjv0tf][u:3avjv0tf] I[/u:3avjv0tf][/b:3avjv0tf]- instructions [u:3avjv0tf][b:3avjv0tf]B[/b:3avjv0tf][/u:3avjv0tf]- before[u:3avjv0tf][b:3avjv0tf] L[/b:3avjv0tf][/u:3avjv0tf]- leaving [u:3avjv0tf][b:3avjv0tf]E-[/b:3avjv0tf][/u:3avjv0tf]earth
or does the miracles as Jesus does?
I can give you plenty of books where people do miracles. And besides, this doesn’t mean anything. A book can faithfully relate Jesus’ miracles
without being inspired. His miracles in a book do not said book inspired. [/quote:3avjv0tf]
You can do whatever you want to do but that type of reasoning is also useless.
Or the 100% accuracy of His prophecies?
Which prophecies? Plenty of people believe Nostradomus (wow, I reall butchered that spelling… heh) told a bunch of valid prophecies. Does that make him inspired? [/quote:3avjv0tf]
Prophetcies such as His virgin birth and the whole book of Revelation is Prophetical as well as the many prophecies about His coming (Daniel 9:24-27 ) to name a few. 1 Timothy 4 – [color=red:3avjv0tf]Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; [/color:3avjv0tf] sounds pretty accurate to discribe today’s life. Nostradomas wasn’t error proof – which proves it isn’t infallible, nor inspired
[quote:3avjv0tf]None of them That is how I know it to be the Authority by what it say being 100% truthful and accurate
So in other words, you don’t know at all. Well I’m glad I understand this finally. You believe in the Bible because… of no reason at all.
Let’s get this straight – I’ve checked out Scripture for myself, It is you that doubts and rejects God’s word and His salvation plan. If you need help to understand where Catholicism is in error, I can show you that as well, but if you are simply going to refuse to accept these facts, that I cannot change , but know this much – would I be here if I was benefitting one bit by my personal benefits? Not hardly. We have been told byGod to preach the Gospel to the lost – do you want to know about how to get saved or not? That is my motivation plain and simple.
