Saint James says:
[quote:od83a5hr]”I mean Luther was not infallible anymore then anyone else is “
This is precisely the point. How do we know when Luther was teaching truth or error?
You accept Luther’s teaching regarding to faith and Scripture, but you reject it when he speaks on the sacraments.
How do know it’s not the other way around? [/quote:od83a5hr]
First understand this I am not a follower of Martin Luther, although I think he was right for starting the reformation. I am a follower of Jesus Christ and in regards to what I know, I’ll show you from Scriptures where the Gospel is, not some Lutherian whatever. As for faith and Scriptures, I again simply ask you to show me one book or passage that carries the ohmp that the Word of God has, just one, but know that there isn’t anything like it. In regards to Faith alone, our Salvation cannot be earned, it is a free gift through the grace of our Lord and what He did 2000 years ago at Calvary to pay for our sins. Any attempt to merit it nullifies grace. Sacraments are not the means to attain any merits, that is what your church claims but if that was the case we could start to rib out verses like Ephesians 2:8-9 and Romans 3:27-28 and Titus 3:5 from the Bible.
“if they speak what the infallible Bible says as it was meant to be then at that time they are speaking truthful “
But Luther would tell you that was what he was doing – speaking what the infallible Bible said. He would tell you to also accept his teaching on the sacraments.
But you are picking and choosing what you want to believe, basing it on what you believe the Bible is saying. But how do you know that you are right? [/quote:od83a5hr]
Why he didn’t see this? Probably the same reason you can’t, as he was fed the same lies, or whatever. But this much I do know, as John 8:31-32 tells us “if we stay in Scriptures, we would know the truth.”
[quote:od83a5hr]Ron, this has been the problem with Protestantism. The picking and choosing of over 30,000 different denominations, all thinking they got it right. [/quote:od83a5hr]
Well that is why one must get to know the Word of God then so one can KNOW who is right. I know I don’t want to be someone in which the Lord tells – you error not knowing Scriptures (Matthew 22:29)
[quote:od83a5hr]My question: how do you know when you are speaking without error concerning the infallible Word?[/quote:od83a5hr]
Easy – I’ll show you whatever it is about the Bible in which you don’t understand what it is that I’m sayig.
