St. James You asked:
[quote:3sb61vj5] how does one know the Bible is the Word of God? [/quote:3sb61vj5]
how do I know, well 1 Thess. 2:13 tells us:
[color=red:3sb61vj5]13 For this reason we also thank God without ceasing, because when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you welcomed it not as the word of men, but as [b:3sb61vj5]it is in truth[/b:3sb61vj5], the word of God, which also effectively works in you who believe[/color:3sb61vj5]
but of course you’d probably not think that is a good enough reason. Simply put, I’ve never seen an error or mistake yet and all the prophetic areas have come true, sso what else is there that compares with the 100% truth of Scriptures?
LARoberts asks two questions:
[quote:3sb61vj5]You may as well ask Ron by what special powers he can read the souls of those on the forum he has never met,[/quote:3sb61vj5]
Simply knowing God’s way helps because we aren’t judging the people, but we can judge their beliefs, that is why we are to judge everything (check out 1 Corinthians 2:14-16) and test (see 1 Thessalonians 5:21)everything. And since God has only one path to salvation, and it isn’t what or how Catholics are taught, then I don’t need to know each individual. It is the same as John 20:23 was meant to be. (not the creation of your priests)
[quote:3sb61vj5]or by what powers of personal paranoia he feels anything that mentions education is a slight at him[/quote:3sb61vj5]
not everything but most of what you post has negative implicatons towards me and other fundamentalists as shown by your next comment –
[quote:3sb61vj5]Since you are asking questions he refuses to answer in the first place.[/quote:3sb61vj5]
One more thing in regards to LARoberts closing comment :
[quote:3sb61vj5]he will very soon be back in the bosom of Holy Mother Church.[/quote:3sb61vj5]
I’ve told you many times, I am in THE Church, and I will NEVER join thie Catholic Church or any other cult. For all of your “education” what is it about that statment don’t you understand?
