Uncertaindrummer has these little messages to me:
[quote:2vxsi5st]That article was unconvincing even by Protestant standards.[/quote:2vxsi5st]
That doesn’t surprise me for a number of reasons: you being a Catholic don’t believe in Sola Scriptura either (the Bible as the authority) so why would my article impress you? The Bible tells us this as well. I know that my articles are legitimate because I have several people including a pastor look them over BEFORE I ever send them in for accuracy ” title=”Smile” />
Equating “Jesus” with “Bible” is incredibly pathetic. “The Word” does not refer to the Bible, which was only compiled in the 4th century by the CATHOLIC CHURCH. Tell me Ron. What did a Christian living in 60 A.D. do? Seeing as the “Bible” didn’t exist and much of it wasn’t even written, they were pretty much ruined weren’t they? [/quote:2vxsi5st]
The Word is/are the teachings of Jesus Christ of which the Bible is His Book for us. Hebrews tells us that He used prophets in the past so how God use to get information to us has greatly improved, wouldn’t you say?
All of the writtenings of Scriptures were before 100 AD. so that those that maybe were somewhat limited in hearing the message even before a “bible” would do so. How they did it I don’t and can’t say but regardless, Scriptuures does say in Romans 1 that no one has an excuse for not believing. Aren’t you glad we now have the Bible?
And for the almost millenium and a half before the printing press was invented (and even for centuries after that) the Bible was not even available to most (assuming they could read, and most couldn’t), so how could they be saved? Oh that’s right, the Church taught them how. [/quote:2vxsi5st]
The Church isn’t Roman Catholicism either with all of your unbiblical practices my friend
[quote:2vxsi5st]And 2 Tim 3:16-17 is useless for your purposes. Not only does it never say the Bible is sufficient for our needs, it is also referring to the OLD Testament, since that was all that was written at the time. [/quote:2vxsi5st]
It tells me it is — try reading out of a New King James once. By the way, since you say it isn’t sufficent, care to tell me what you think it lacks?
[quote:2vxsi5st]Plus, you never defined who a “man of God” happens to be. [/quote:2vxsi5st]
A Born-again Believer would be a “man of God”
And lastly, Paul says they are ready for all good works, but you don’t even think good works are useful! [/quote:2vxsi5st]
Paull doesn’t say good works get you saved but that by faith in what Jesus did at Calvary saves us so we now can do good works… keep your bible in context. (as your church people like to tell me)
[quote:2vxsi5st]So basically, you fail an all counts.[/quote:2vxsi5st]
Oh you mean like your predictions on baseball at your ranting address?
You don’t do very well at that either! ” title=”Very Happy” />
