    Looks like horse play. I wonder if she challenged him to throw her in the water.

    The presumptuous way, indeed, in which Luther, among others, poured contempt, and doubt upon some of the inspired writings which had been acknowledged and cherished and venerated for 1000 or 1000 years would be scarcely credible were it not that we have his very words in cold print, which cannot lie, and may be read in his Biography, or be seen quoted in such books as Dr. Westcott’s The Bible in The Church. And why did he impugn such books as we have mentioned? Because they did not suit his new doctrines and opinions. He had arrived at the principle of private judgment—of picking and choosing religious doctrines; and when­ever any book, such as the Book of Machabees, taught a doctrine that was repugnant to his individual taste—as, for example, that ‘it is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead that they may be loosed from sins’, 2 Mach. xii., 46—well, so much the worse for the book; ‘throw it overboard’, was his sentence, and overboard it went. And it was the same with passages and texts in those books which Luther allowed to remain, and pronounced to be worthy to find a place within the boards of the new Reformed Bible. In short, he not only cast out certain books, but he mutilated some that were left. For example, not pleased with St Paul’s doctrine, ‘we are justified by faith’, and fearing lest good works (a Popish superstition) might creep in, he added the word ‘only’ after St Paul’s words, making the sentence run: ‘We are justified by Faith only’, and so it r

    Open a Protestant Bible, and you will find there are seven complete Books awanting—that is, seven books fewer than there are in the Catholic Bible, and seven fewer than there were in every collection and catalog of Holy Scripture from the fourth to the sixteenth century. Their names are Tobias, Baruch, Judith, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus, I Machabees, II Machabees, together with seven chapters of the Book of Esther and 66 verses of the 3rd chapter of Daniel, commonly called ‘the Song of the Three Children’, (Daniel iii., 24-90, Douai version). These were deliberately cut out, and the Bible bound up without them. The criticisms and remarks of Luther, Calvin, and the Swiss and German Reformers about these seven books of the Old Testament show to what depths of impiety those unhappy men had allowed themselves to fall when they broke away from the true Church. Even in regard to the New Testament it required all the powers of resistance on the part of the more con­servative Reformers to prevent Luther from flinging out the Epistle of St. James as unworthy to remain within the volume of Holy Scripture—’an Epistle of straw’ he called it, ‘with no character of the Gospel in it’. In the same way, and almost to the same degree, he dishonored the Epistle of St. Jude and the Epistle to the Hebrews, and the beautiful Apocalypse of St. John, declaring they were not on the same footing as the rest of the books, and did not contain the same amount of Gospel (i.e., his Gospel). The presumptuous w

    These bibles are explain in the book ” Where We Got the Bible: Our Debt to the Catholic Church”

    by The Right Rev. HENRY G. GRAHAM, I recommend the Douay-Rheims Bible (Challoner Revision)? the original 1500 year old bible contains all the original books of the old and new that was tossed out of the KJ bible which is only 500 years old.

    Luke 10:16 “He that hears you hears me; and he that despises you despises me; and he that despises me despises him that sent me.” Again It’s too obvious These church leaders were given full authority.

    Here is some of what the” ultimate judge.” Said.
    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.

    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.

    o According to a 2000 report to the Baptist General Convention in Texas, “The incidence of sexual abuse by clergy has reached ‘horrific proportions.’” It noted that in studies done in the 1980s, 12 percent of ministers had “engaged in sexual intercourse with members” and nearly 40 percent had “acknowledged sexually inappropriate behavior.” The report concluded that “The disturbing aspect of all research is that the rate of incidence for clergy exceeds the client-professional rate for physicians and psychologists.”[xix] Regarding pornography and sexual addiction, a national survey disclosed that about 20 percent of all ministers are involved in the behavior.[xx]
    o In the spring of 2002, when the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church was receiving unprecedented attention, the Christian Science Monitor reported on the results of national surveys by Christian Ministry Resources. The conclusion: “Despite headlines focusing on the priest pedophile problem in the Roman Catholic Church, most American churches being hit with child sexual-abuse allegations are Protestant, and most of the alleged abusers are not clergy or staff, but church volunteers.” Finally, in the authoritative work by Penn State professor Philip Jenkins, Pedophiles and Priests, it was determined that between .2 and 1.7 percent of priests are pedophiles. The figure among the Protestant ranges between 2 and 3 percent.

    As explain byJohn Martignoni [admin@biblechristiansociety.com] does John 3:16 say that believing alone is what saves us? I mean, think about this: Do we need to love God in order to be saved? [Easy question, right? Ask that of a person who believes in salvation by faith alone - Sola Fide - and see what they say. Think about it. If we are indeed saved by faith alone - Sola Fide - then the correct answer is, “No, we don’t need to love God in order to be saved.” Because if we need to love God in order to be saved, then we are not saved by faith “alone.” It would be faith AND love that saves us. So, if we need to love God in order to be saved, then Sola Fide is false. But, the other option they have is to say we can get into Heaven without loving God, or, without loving our neighbor. Really?! What Christian in their right mind would say you don’t have to love God or neighbor in order to be saved? That doesn’t make any sense. Either way they go, they’ve got a problem.]

    O I get it a rock for example, although it has no intellect somehow decides to becomes a rock from nothing. Now were getting somewhere.. Now am I to believe this or in an intellectual being . No brainier! It’s God!

  • [1] November 8, 2014 at 9:37pm

    Are you trying to say a rock for example came from nothing. A rock doesn’t have an intellect. It can’t say I want to be a rock. Therefore there must be a prime mover a uncaused cause.

    James 4:11, “Speak not evil one of another, brethren, he that speaks evil of his brother and judges his brother speaks evil of the law and judges the law, but if you judge the law you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is one lawgiver that is able to save and to destroy. Who are you that judges another?”
