Question arises of course, if an idea is only infallible once it is presented ex cathedra...then which fallible person decides that the idea is going to be presented ex cathedra?
We are not referring to ideas. We are referring to doctrines handed down by Jesus via the apostles. That same Jesus who promised his Church that the gates of hell would not prevail against it; that same Jesus who promised to lead the apostles into all truth; that same Jesus who gave the apostles the authority to bind and lose; that same Jesus who promised his apostles he would be with them always. Jesus has not deserted his Church and has given his Church a share in his infallibility so that those who follow its teaching are assured of the truth..
I studied Matthew 16:18. It is not about the RCC,
It's about the one true Church that Jesus Christ founded and that is the Catholic Church
but let’s assume that we are wrong and that you’re right about it. Ok, the next step is to study what you guys taught. Here is the problem, I found many errors.
You think you found errors but you are in error there.
The bible does not make anyone a Catholic.
Of course the Bible doesn't make anyone Catholic. It's a book.
Anyd you don't become a Christian of any sort by reading the Bible either.
So, do we need a miracle to know the truth? There is no other way.
To know the truth listen to what the Catholic Church teaches.
Before God and the holy angels and the great clouds of witnesses, of Hebrews 12~I do not know one doctrine that the Catholic Church teach that is not in some way corrupted! by them.
I agree that we don't become a Christian by reading the scripture~Eternally we were elected by grace to be part of the Church of God; Legally were part of the body of Christ when he was put to death and resurrect from the dead; vitally we were quicken by the Spirit of God to be part of the church of Christ; Practically Through the holy scriptures we have a knowledge that we are part of the church that the gates of hell shall not prevail against! It is the church of the first born, which are written in heaven, called Mount Zion, the true city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem. Have you ever heard of this church?
In "Is Baptism a work" thread in Theology you promised to start a thread explaining your theology os salvation but haven't
Instead you just seem to go around giving your opinions and making negative comments. No evidence to back them up.
You are nothing but a troll.
You are correct I did promised that, and will, at a convenient time. I did not give a specific date, but will. You comment about me being a troll, well, I guess you have point, since everyone on this forum and others that I have seen, do indeed troll around and make comments, fishing for the true elect, to that they can help them to better understand the scriptures. I do not troll just to hurt people, and to make negative comments, that statement is surmising on your part. I would never accuse someone of that, because we cannot know anyone's heart totally. But no problem, I reckon by my strong temperance, that that could be in people's mind, but trust me, I do not dislike any particular religionist body, just because I may differ from them, it is their teaching against the scriptures
that we war against. There are some very sincere Catholics, I know some personally, and have respect for them as a person, but must reject their doctrines, if I cannot find support from the scriptures. Paul exhorted us to rebuke certain people strongly, that they may be sound in the faith.
Titus 1. Neither you or me, should protest against anyone speaking hard against us, for they are only doing what they should do, if they truly love us as they should. Leviticus 19:17
I do not know where God's elect are, only God does, our duty is to be faithful to the scriptures first and foremost, and then see who loves the scriptures by them clinking to the word of God alone, and defending them above everything else, including, but not limiting to our church affiliation.
