I find this image to be spiritually disturbing, theologically disgusting, and intellectually cowardly.

A Baptist seminary student made this picture, but why should I care if you find it spiritually disturbing, theologically disgusting, and intellectually cowardly? Are you the arbiter of Orthodoxy on this issue?

Also, you never flesh out why you say the things you do with me. All you do are hit and runs! All you do is say insulting stuff and you never really explain yourself.

If this is all you are going to do with me then it might be best to keep your personal feelings about my posts to yourself, for I am not the one to be silent! I will fight back!
 
So in the future, if you respond like that to one of my posts, be prepared for a fight! Or else don't respond like that ever again! For I will respond accordingly!



Are you one of those types that complains that having Parafin candles instead of Beeswax aint Orthodox?

What kind of question is that? Out of my two thousand and plus posts on this forum, did you ever see me complain about that?

Now, are you one of those types that like to annoy people for no reason at all?

Here's what I don't get. I'm watching Lee Strobel's Case for Christ movie but in this entire movie it discusses the New Testament and it's authority, authenticity blah blah blah...but nothing on the actual Church that was founded by God Himself. I never understand these Protestant apologetics, wouldn't the best defense of the faith be the actual Church that was established but of course you'd cease to be a Protestant at that point. And these apologetics just beg the question on whom discerned that these documents are authentic, it comes down to a bunch of scholarly theologians say these are authentic because they match the conservative view of Jesus.

Sola Scriptura never made sense to me in a historical sense.

That's exactly what's stumped me as i've been reading through some of this. I have never heard any preaching or teaching that there was ever another style of church that existed other than Catholics and Protestants. The authority and authenticity is taught and then the church grew from that upper room into what Protestants have today. It's stumped me because i can see from even the most basic of reading i've done that there's evidence to suggest otherwise.

Hence the term sola imagination so eloquently phrased by some on this board. The sola scriptura view does not hold up to even the lightest of challenges. Historically speaking, its a recent fad.
