My twisted perversion of God's word?
You understood me correctly.
I say you have the twisted perversion, the one thought up by men, the new modern one that only came about hundreds upon hundreds of years after the original and true one that has, and still does, stand the test of time.
Again, you say, they say, and he said...means not one thing, but which one is supported by the testimony of God Himself? The faithful in Jesus Christ test every spirit by the word of their God, not by dogmas of the Pharisees, and Scribes. The faithful have only the holy scriptures to guide them, and they have been here since Moses,
way before Catholicism and EOC. If you expect us to believe a doctrine, or a commandment, then show us from the word of truth, or else, you are a intruder, a stranger that we will not follow. We follow the True Shepherd and Bishop of our souls. Your shepherds are thieves and robbers, and care not for the sheep.
This interpretation was arrived at by the Church as a whole, by the rightful leaders of it, the Bishops, called by God and placed in their postion to continue the teaching of His word down through time to this present day.
Again, your words to the faithful are lies, for our Bishop, Jesus Christ has warned us of false shepherds, who love to seat in Moses' seat~who make broad their phylacteries, and to be called Rabbi, Rabbi...or Pa Pa! If you truly desire to see your religion in the scriptures, then go to Matthew 23, that's one of the places that you cannot miss your religion...clear as the noon day sun shining it its full
The fact is your interpretation of Gods word is so messed up, and that since none of you rejectionists can agree on any one biblical interpretation
Just because it is different than yours, (and we bless Almighty God that it is) does not mean that we are mess up. We are only concern if we agree with God's testimony, man's interpretation (including our own!) means nothing to the faithful in Jesus Christ, we are continually testing our own understanding with God's words and will until we leave this world. Your words quoted in the box sounds so much
like the Pharisees in John chapter nine, when speaking to the blind man as he was telling them who healed him:
John 9:24-34~"Then again called they the man that was blind, and said unto him, Give God the praise: we know that this man is a sinner. He answered and said, Whether he be a sinner or no, I know not: one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see. Then said they to him again, What did he to thee? how opened he thine eyes? He answered them, I have told you already, and ye did not hear: wherefore would ye hear it again? will ye also be his disciples? Then they reviled him, and said, Thou art his disciple; but we are Moses' disciples. We know that God spake unto Moses: as for this fellow, we know not from whence he is. The man answered and said unto them, Why herein is a marvellous thing, that ye know not from whence he is, and yet he hath opened mine eyes. Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. If this man were not of God, he could do nothing. They answered and said unto him, Thou wast altogether born in sins, and dost thou teach us? And they cast him out."
Words sound familiar? If not, just read your words again!
And Holy Tradition wasn't invented friend, it existed from the beginning and is how things were passed down by the Church before the Holy Scriptures were even put together in written form
It was invented, the faithful would NEVER used such an expression, and the reason being is this: we have the scriptures to support any doctrine and practice that we have.
We live by the very same standard that our Lord did when he lived in this world~by every written word of God! Matthew 4:4
, and if it is NOT written, then how can it be tested? It cannot, and your false religion knows that! So, your followers just blindly follow your lying words, so that you can continue practice your religion, even though it has no support of God's testimony from his word that he has given to us for us to use as our only guide in worshiping him.
In the beginning, there was no kind of "altar call",
True, and neither do we practice this. Also, there were no so-called priest sitting behind a wall with people coming and confessing their sins to them either~beside this, our scriptures tell us that we ALL are a holy priesthood and we can go directly to God through our Lord Jesus! Much different than what you folks believe. Your tier of authority
stinks in God's holy nostrils. Time would fail me to mention all of your corruption.
(with all believing in the Real Presence of Our Lord Jesus Christ)
Oh, there's another one! And you folks are proud of your corruption of God's word.
All this a far cry from how you worship.
You would never understand if I try to tell you. But, I will tell you that it is very simple, without all of the pomp and show of Catholicism, and EOC~I can assured you of that. We do so in spirit
and in truth, without any show or pomp.
