=tweetiebird;10238502]I love my protestant brothers and sister.
But why dont we take sola scriptura literally, and just read the bible during
service and have no preaching.
In short to be really bible based, why dont we stop all preaching and just have
someone read out of the bible without any sermons.
Here from The Bible is your answer:)
Jn. 20:30-31 "Many other signs also did Jesus in the sight of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written, that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: and that believing, you may have life in his name.]*** NOT everything is IN the Bible ***
2nd. Peter 1: 20-21 First of all you must understand this, that no prophecy of scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation, because no prophecy ever came by the impulse of man, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
Romans 13: 1-4 “Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. Therefore he who resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment"
Acts.20: 28 **“Take heed to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit **has made you overseers, to care for the church of God [SINGULAR/ the CC] which he obtained with the blood of his own Son.”
*Luke 11:28 *“But he said: Yea rather, blessed are they who hear the word of God, and keep it” [THIS MEANS READ AND EXPLAINED!]
Eph.3: 9 to 12 “And to make all men see what is the plan of the mystery hidden for ages in God who created all things; that through the church [SINGULAR: meaning THE CATHOLIC Church] the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places. This was according to the eternal purpose which he has realized in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and confidence of access through our faith in him
*Rom.1: 5 *“through whom we [ALONE] have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith for the sake of his name among all the nations,”
Rom.10: 17 So faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes by the preaching of Christ.
The KEYS to heaven were Given ONLY to Peter and the CC: here's WHY
Mt. 28:16-20 "16] And the eleven disciples [Apostles] went into Galilee, unto the mountain where Jesus had appointed them. And Jesus coming, spoke to them, saying*: All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. **Going therefore, teach ye [YOU ONLY HAVE THIS MANDATE] all nations;[REQUIRES PAPAL SUCCESSION OF AUTHORITY TO FULFILL THIS COMMAND] baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you*: and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.
So the Church MUST TEACH and ALONE is Empowered an protected to do so!
John 14:16-17 FILLED in John 20:21-22... again ONLY the CC
