The Body of Christ versus Acts 29- 1


The largest danger to the Christian faith is found here. The Bible +. For the Mormon faith it is the Bible + The Book of Mormon, the pearl of great price, and the Doctrine and Covenants. For the Roman Catholic it is the Bible + Apostolic Authority, the catechism, the Apocrypha, and tradition. For the Christian Science faith it is the Bible + science and health with key to the scriptures. For the New Apostolic Reformation it is so Bible + Apostolic revelation. And on and on it goes. Each faith seems to need something extra to go along with the Bible in order to be acceptable to that Crew. Some View scripture to be the writings of men despite scripture to the contrary. All scripture is god-breathed. No prophecy of scripture is privately interpreted but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit. This tells me that the origin of scripture is the Triune God. Do not add to his words lest he reprove you and you be found a liar. Why does the Bible need any help from all those other things? It is to fit each of their belief systems into a snug little box of their own making. Most of them claimed to be the only true church. That actually marks them out as a cult. In 1st Corinthians 1:10 the Apostle Paul says, I beseech you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ that you all speak the same thing and that there be no divisions among you. But they all don’t speak the same thing and there are many divisions among them and such is the problem. More in part 2 so stay tuned.

  1. So you are saying that we must believe in Sola Scriptura or the scriptures alone? Problem: Nowhere in the scriptures does it say the scriptures alone! But I can show you where it DOES say in the scriptures that we are to also hold fast to Apostolic Tradition. The Apostle Paul said.. “Hold fast to the TRADITIONS that you have received from us, EITHER by word of mouth OR by a letter (scripture) of ours.” (2 Thess.2:15) The historically recent doctrine of Sola Scriptura says..”The Scriptures Alone is the supreme authority in every doctrine of faith except the scriptures alone which is not found anywhere in the scriptures.”

    1. The Bible warns about adding to his word. Catholics love to add, subtract what they don’t like, multiply error, and cause divisions. Your celebration of Christmas came from Christ’s Mass and before that from Sun Day. You have the wise men and the shepherd’s together and they never were together. The wise men showed up at the house where Jesus was and not at the manger. The errors go on and on.

      1. You got that almost right. You said our celebration of Christmas comes from Christs Mass. Yes. But not earlier from the sun. The Mass, were Christ’s sacrifice is re-presented to us, came only from the Son.

    1. No. To a Catholic the Catechism is a help to understand the Gospel. If the Catholic Catechism is bad then a Protestant bible study workbook is bad.
