So Thad who is your final authority? Your church?Christ and the Holy Spirit operating in and through Christ's Body.
Who is the head of your church on earth?Christ. Isn't this what scripture states, or do you erase that part too.
Who is it hat you uphold before scripture?Christ and His Church, The Body is the pillar and ground of Truth, I Tim 3:15.
You keep saying we here are our own authority. Who is the Holy Spirit to you? Do you believe it is scriptural to have personal relation ship with Jesus and personal by the Holy Spirit revelation that is in accordance with God?if you can find anywhere in scripture that man has authority over scripture and that the Holy Spirit gives revelation to individual men in this Messianic Era, I'll listen.
I can assure you that the Holy Spirit is NOT giving to you and every other sola scripturist all these new innovative doctrines and ideas that have produced hundreds of denominations.
earlier you stated that the Lords word was by oral communication through the apostles. They wrote by divine guidance? Why would that negate the Bible as His divine holy writ establishing His will for His church.Never stated that it negated the Bible. It is the particular use, sola scriptura that is not found anywhere in scripture. Neither is the idea that man can interpret the text at his own whim.
Would you agree that all believers are his church and not just your church? Why would you not think that biblical?All believers are, and I belong to Christ's Church, the one He established by the Apostles here on earth. The question is, do you? It is very biblical.
