    Via here is your guide Acts 8:31. Here the Ethiopian eunuch is reading Scripture and Philip comes up and asks him if he understands what he is reading. What does the eunuch say, “Of course I understand it. I don’t need any help from anyone to understand the Bible?” No, he doesn’t say that! He says, “How can I [understand the Scriptures] unless someone guides me.”

    via 1 Corinthians 12:28 “God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers” So God says, the Bible says, the word of God says these are the people who will lead us to the truth.

    Via 2 Peter 3:16 “As also in all his Epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they doe also the other Scriptures, onto their owned destruction” Who do you think that Peter was talking to? Peter was talking to the first Christians who thought they had the best interpretation of the day telling them that some things in Paul’s writings are difficult to understand and to misinterpret it could lead to their own destruction. Even if we knew all scripture and had all sorts of PHD degrees in theology, etc. We will still have all sorts of opinions on what this or what that scripture means. We will not always agree on all things. Where’s the unity Jesus prayed to the Father for us in John 17:21? He prayed that we would be one as He and the Father are one .Not so good when you think there are over 25,000 and growing Protestant religions each claiming to have the right and sometimes contradictory interpretations. Thus we need God’s authorized church leaders with God given infallible authority.

    Next class assignment is to read:

    Where We Got the Bible: Our Debt to the Catholic Church
    by The Right Rev. HENRY G. GRAHAM,

    Via I am back after checking and grading the 10 historical questions that I presented for my assignment that any truthful God loving student should had been able to master easily . As a former teacher I handled your grade fairly. So getting to business what I saw here is an example of a ignorant fool making a mockery of God’s word. Not only did you answer wrong, you failed dreadfully to attempt to answer fairly the obvious truth. It would had been far better not to answer then to haphazardly mockingly these gospel questions. Therefore unless a sincere apology is forthcoming I will expel you from my class. Remember It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt.

    Via for the truth.
    2 Thes 2:15, “So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter.” Traditions! Oral traditions and written traditions. Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture, both of which the Corinthians are being told to “stand firm and hold to.”
    And how does Paul refer to these oral traditions elsewhere? 1 Thes 2:13, “And we also thank God constantly for this, that when you received the Word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men but as what it really is, the Word of God, which is at work in you believers.” The Thessalonians received as the Word of God that which they heard from Paul, not simply that which they read in his letters.

  • [1] November 25, 2014 at 7:32am

    Via to continue :
    Matthew 28:19″Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”
    Now this proves this authority was passed on because the apostle could not live “unto the end of the world.” Also note they were told to teach all nations not to pass out Bibles for people to do this on their own without the aid of Jesus’ Church to decide what is true or false.
    2 Timothy 2:2 “And the things that you have heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.” Thus this passage shows that authority was pass on to four generations. E.g. 1st, Paul, 2nd, Timothy 3rd, faithful men 4th, teach others also. How was this authority pass on? Only thru the church Acts 1 ‘May another take his place of leadership.’
    Finally, remember Jesus started the one, true, holy and apostolic church. This church is both visible meaning the ones on earth and invisible the ones in heaven. Surely folks on earth will always screw things up but we got God’s word that the gates of hell will not prevail Matthew 16:15-20 ; thus it’s not just a bunch of man made unauthorized fallible organized religions with everyone believing all they need to do is individually pray to the Holy Spirit and they’ll get the infallible right int

  • [1] November 25, 2014 at 7:26am

    Via now back to the preacher thing.Romans 10:14″ How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? ” Again Well who are these leaders the Bible talks about?
    1 Corinthians 12:28 “God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers” So God says, the Bible says, the word of God says these are the people who will lead us to the truth.
    Did the Father send them?
    Yelp! He sure did, John 20:21 “Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”
    How did the Father send them? Matthew 28:18 ” With all power from heaven” That’s how.
    John 14:16 “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.” That means then and now not just one generation, or the doctrine of infallibility forever.

  • [1] November 25, 2014 at 7:15am

    Via Thanks for making the case for the doctrine of infallibility for the one true Church. Further note John 16:13″ But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth” is 1 Timothy 3:15 hmm it reads the pillar and ground what the Bible? NOPE. ” But if I tarry long, that you may know how you ought to behave yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.” So the Bible says, the word of God says it’s the Church not scripture. Therefore, the final authority is God’s Church. So the Church founded by Jesus Christ is an singular visible authoritative church. Think about this, for the Bible to have authority the Church has to have authority. How do we know the Bible has no errors? How do we know which books are suppose to be in the Bible? Because the church tell us so. Since the Bible does not have a list to tell us which books belong in the Bible we need to rely on a source outside of the Bible.

  • [1] November 25, 2014 at 7:07am

    Via You quoted Luke 24 ” 47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations”

    Do you really understand what this means or do you just gloss over it?
    I’ll try to help you. Pay attention please to preach was the instruction not to go get the bible and spread it all over for folks like you to come up with their own fallible interpretation. In order for them to preach they were given infallible guidance by the Holy Spirit.
    Well who are these leaders the Bible talks about?
    1 Corinthians 12:28 “God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers” So God says, the Bible says, the word of God says these are the people who will lead us to the truth.
    John 16:13″ But when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth”
    These are the ones filled with the gift of the Spirit, Here is evidence for the doctrine on infallibility. Also a very important fact Jesus instructed them to go and teach not go and pass out Bibles. Besides the complete Bible wasn’t even completed by the church until almost 400 years after Jesus. Thus literally thousands of folks were saved without a Bible. Besides the Bible at that time was hand written by monks an very time consuming process tanking an entire year just to make one copy and very expensive. So most people could not afford it or even could read for that matter, until the printing press in the 14th century.

    Via Wake up from your slumber.

    Revelations
    Chapter 12

    12:1 A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.

    12:2 She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.

    12:3 Another sign was seen in heaven. Behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven crowns.

    12:4 His tail drew one third of the stars of the sky, and threw them to the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.

    12:5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. Her child was caught up to God, and to his throne

    LCDR

    All?? You just called Jesus a sinner! What about the unborn babies? What about one or two year olds? Where do you draw the line.?
    Romans 3:10-20,23 ” None is righteous no not one”
    However in Luke 1:6 it says that both parents of John The Baptist -Zechariah and Elizabeth -were righteous before God , walking in all the commandments of the lord blameless.”
    In Matthew 1:19 Joseph is describe as a just man some translation say “righteous” man.
    Righteous man is also mention in Matt 10:41, Matt 13:17, James 5:16 and elsewhere.
    What about newborn infants? Are they righteous or not?
    Does Scripture contradict itself? WE both agree that it doesn’t .Therefore, there must be something wrong with your interpretation
    Romans 3 says that .

  • [5] November 24, 2014 at 10:05pm

    Vie here are some question I bet you can’t or won’t answer.

    1. How many books are in the KJ NT and what year was it compose and by who?
    2. How many books are in the NT Douay-Rheims Bible? compose and by who?
    3. What year was the NT Bible put together ?
    4. What happen before the printing press how were the Bibles distributed ?
    5. Who decided which books belong in the NT?
    6. Do you believe in the Trinity? If so, why? Does the Bible mention anything about there being one God, but 3 persons in God, each of Whom is fully God?
    7. How do you know the bible is inspired by God who told you?
    8. Why do Christian writers of the early and middle centuries of Christianity not mention the supposedly fundamental doctrine of salvation by “faith alone?”
    9. Can you reference any Christian writings before the year 1500 that talk of a belief in Sola Fide?
    10. Why do we have some 25,000 + Protestant denominations all over the world, many teaching doctrines that absolutely contradict one another, when they all go by the Bible alone? Isn’t the Bible easy enough for everyone to read and come to the same conclusion By the Holy spirit as you say?

    via you sure say a lot for one as I pointed out already contradicts yourself as one who claims to be infallible. Why do you like to point out that RCC worship Mary when they clearly do not? That’s being dumb. Let me help you out on Mary’s role in the Church.about you are we to then ask you to prayed for us? If so you are more worthy then the women spoken of in ” Genesis 3 states “I will put enmity between you and the woman” Now what on earth do you think that means? It’s too easy enmity means a deep seated hate thus by God’s word there can never be any friendship between Mary and the devil. So for that to be true she could not even do one sin because if she did just one sin she would be on the devil’s side then God’s word would be wrong. Being that God can never be wrong then Mary can never sin.! Revelation (11:19 – 12:6): “Then God’s temple in heaven opened and in the temple could be seen the Ark of the Covenant. There were flashes of lightning and peals of thunder, an earthquake and a violent hailstorm. A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. Sure don’t sound like the maid.

  • [5] November 24, 2014 at 8:29pm

    Via Do your homework on Mary.

    Mary equates to the Ark of the Covenant because God was within her.
    Genesis 3 states “I will put enmity between you and the woman” enmity means a deep seated hate thus by God’s word there can never be any friendship between Mary and the devil. So for that to be true she could not even do one sin because if she did just one sin she would be on the devil’s side then God’s word would be wrong. Being that God can never be wrong then Mary can never sin.! Revelation (11:19 – 12:6): “Then God’s temple in heaven opened and in the temple could be seen the Ark of the Covenant. There were flashes of lightning and peals of thunder, an earthquake and a violent hailstorm. A great sign appeared in the sky, a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars

    You need to understand that God used Mary for His plan for salvation. You see because sin came in the world thru a women He used another women to bring salvation into the world. Thereby undoing what the first women did. Therefore, when we go to Jesus we get there thru Mary whether we realize it or not. There is no way getting out of this fact! That Jesus decided to come into the world thru her . Remember this is God’s plan She is nothing compare to God but she is His master piece He created her. Jesus thus picked His own mother no other child could do this. So to enjoy her is to give thank to God for His work.

    Neither should we.”
    Sorry but are you nuts?
