Yeah, but those types of people don’t tend to hang out here. I mean, we could talk about how the whole “dictation” idea is even MORE non-Biblical than Sola Scriptura (because it claims a *larger *truth, which is even *less *substantiated within Scripture).
Did you quote 1Cor1:14-16 to refute that Jesus commissioned the Apostles to baptize disciples?.. Please clarify.
Of course not, I cited it because Paul says that he couldn’t remember whether or not he did something (Baptize other individuals). Of course, the Holy Spirit knows EXACTLY who Paul Baptized (the Spirit was there, and the Spirit does not suffer from memory lapses). So, clearly, when Paul wrote at least those words, they were purely his own words, and not words that the Holy Spirit dictated to Paul.
If someone wants to claim that the authors of Scripture had absolutely nothing to do with the exact wording (the dictation idea), then all someone has to do to disprove this idea is come up with just one passage in which this idea is proved to be absurd.
Otherwise, we are left with no response to the accusation: Do you mean to tell me that the Holy Spirit cannot even remember who Paul Baptized?
We’ve all given Even the benefit of the doubt, without asking him if he actually believes in the dictation idea. I think this is the charitable position. Even is free to present and defend the dictation idea if this is actually what s/he believes.
