And who preservered this innerant Bible? Ah that would be the ECFs of the Catholic Church in agreement thus the canons. And all this while the Church/Eucharist was in operation, amazing history really.
There is really no disputing this. Even Luther credits the Catholic Church for this.
Oh...and then came the Bible.
Gary, this excludes the OT, if we view it this way. Additionally, the writings of the NT were available.
and also with you.
O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of Peace.
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
