Evidently elegant deduction must be explained here to be accepted. Happy to help, I live to serve:Enough of the high falootin logic games, Alfred. I want to know where the word "alone" is to be found in the text of 2 Timothy 3:15-17. Not even the GWN paraphrase you cited shows this.
Every Scripture passage is inspired by God. All of them are useful for teaching, pointing out errors, correcting people, and training them for a life that has God's approval. (2Ti 3:16 GWN)
Every Scripture passage is inspired by God to be beneficial for teaching correct doctrine, NOT every sentence of all literature is inspired by God.
Therefore, as Paul speaks of scripture alone being inspired by God to correct error, its logical scripture alone is inspired by God to correct error, not other literature.
We are speaking of literature, not about His inspiring prophets ect, whose words became scripture.
If you are right, then it should be easy for you to show where Paul listed other literature besides scripture, as equipping the saints.
If scripture isn't alone in this regard, show the precise literature Paul referred to in this text, that isn't scripture.
You can't, because scripture alone is inspired by God for correcting the saints, and equipping them...not other literature.
15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. (2Ti 3:15-17 NKJ)
Which word or phrase precisely, in the above text; refers to the other literature you would have is inspired by God for equipping the saints.
Chop chop, answer please.
