RE: Rich D. 12:22 AM 11/17/2012 RE: Assumption opf the Blessed Virgin Mary My response: You are leaving out the Holy Spirit. The Assumption is correct doctrine because of the Bible and the Holy Spirit. Your "conundrum" contention is a straw man.
RE: Rich D. 12:13 AM 11/17/2012 RE: Sola Scriptura My response: How did Christians survive before everybody had a Bible? Where did Jesus Christ say that you will saved only when you read the Bible?
RE: Rich D. 11:01 11/16/2012 RE: Sola Scriptura (2/2) My response: However, Roman Catholic doctrine cannot contradict anything that is in the Bible: this is not Sola Scriptura like you imply with your specious argument, purposely meant to confuse people and make yourself look like a champion Catholic basher. For instance, Catholic doctrine says that contraception is a sin. But the Bible does not say that. However, Catholic doctrine on this issue is infallible doctrine because of the teaching authority of the Holy Spirit that resides in the pope, and because it does not contradict anything that is in the Bible.
RE: Rich D. 11:01 11/16/2012 RE: Sola Scriptura (1/2) My response: Rich D., you do not understand what I said about Sola Scriptura. Protestants think, fallaciously, that the Bible alone is the authority for Christian doctrine: this is what Sola Scriptura means. But this is a false theory because the Bible nowhere says that it alone is the teaching authority for Christians.
The Holy Spirit vs. Sola Scriptura (4/4) Just imagine what non-Christians would say about Christianity if God let his Son be born from an ordinary sinful woman. If you were God, would you want your son to be born of a prostitute? Of course, we finite mortal beings will never understand the infinite mind of God. That is why we must rely on the teaching authority of the Holy Spirit which resides in the One True Church: The Holy Roman Catholic Church.
The Holy Spirit vs. Sola Scriptura (3/4) The Devil used the words of God (Scripture) to tempt Eve, in The Garden of Eden, and Jesus Christ while 40 days in the desert. Therefore, conclusions drawn from Scripture alone can be fallible when interpreted by men. Protestants, who are Christians, say that God did not create the Blessed Virgin Mary sinless.
The Holy Spirit vs. Sola Scriptura (2/4) Holy Scripture, alone, cannot be used as a legal document as if it possesses the teaching authority of the Holy Spirit because the separated men who draw conclusions from it do not possess the teaching authority of the Holy Spirit. There can be only one true Church of God. The Pope, because he possesses the teaching authority of the Holy Spirit, speaks infallibly on faith and morals. Therefore, Catholics believe that the Roman Catholic doctrines like that of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary and her role as an intercessor are correct Christian doctrines.
The Holy Spirit vs. Sola Scriptura (1/4) To: Brothers in Christ, Roman Catholics, and Anti-Roman Catholics This thread may have run its course. But the discourse, in the general sense, has not. “Sola Scriptura”, itself, is a legal theory of men who have separated from the body of the true Church that possesses the original teaching authority of the Holy Spirit and of the Apostles. The teaching authority of the Protestant church begins with Martin Luther, and not the Apostles.
RE: AmyDB 8:14 PM 11/16/2012 RE: Paul My response: Paul was not God. He was inspired by God to say what God wanted him to say. Paul did not necessarily have to know about the Blessed Virgin Mary. He was not omniscient.
RE: Andy544 8:09 PM 11/16/2012 RE: "Good Work"? My response: So, Andy, your "good work" is to call the Blessed Virgin Mary a sinner?
RE: Rich D. 7:50 Pm 11/16/2012 RE: Proving Points? and Semantic Arguments My response: Your comments are blather. You are trying to accuse me of what I said about you. You are making a fool of yourself. Where is Sola Scriptura in the Bible? You can't answer that because it is not in there!
