First of all, re: infallibility, I said that as a figure of speech, they don’t have infallibility period, but they think they do.
Does Rome use it as a figure of speech? If so, perhaps there iseven greater hope for unity between us.
Here is why they think they have infallibility and It does not take one to be a brain scientist, to know that any man made church or televangelist claims to have some sort of infallibility even Lutherans:eek: Who’s the one that took out 7 books out from the bible? To take out 7 books from the bible, to do so Martin Luther was claiming infallibility to some degree, am I not correct in saying so?
Yes, you are not correct in saying so. Luther removed no books from his translation, but actually added one, the Prayer of Manasseh. He also was quite clear that he was expressing his opinion regarding the canon, which all Catholics before Trent were permitted to do. Luther never claimed infallibility by expressing his opinion.
This goes for every non-catholic Christians who interpret the bible their way, or it’s the high way, to do so they claim to have some sort of infallibility, am I not correct in saying so.
Yes, you are not correct in saying so, at least when you use the term “every non-Catholic Christian”. Lutherans, for example are clear that we do not consider our Confessions as “infallible”, only that they are correct.
JonNC, would you today take out books from the bible? I believe not, because you don’t have the infallibility to do so, neither did Martin Luther.:eek:
Correct, and neither he nor I have taken books out of the Bible.
Yes, at times briefly, I watch televangelist, but not like you think I watch them, it is to pray for them, to come Home, Like I have been telling you for quite some Time to come HOME, Lutheranism is not your home.
I join your prayers for them…
The Catholic Church is HOME for every Christian.
…and I pray for the day that this is true.
