[quote=Lazerlike42]I shall, for the sake of arguement/fun, construct a “proof.” Please refute!
Of course the Reformation was inspired. Only, however, under God’s true conduit, Luther. He himself said, “My judgment is at the same time God’s and not mine.” Also, he made clear that “I do not admit that my doctrine can be judged by anyone, even by the angels. He who does not receive my doctrine cannot be saved.” These can be taken as nothing less than claims to inspiration. Not only would a man of Luther’s faith surely be greatly opposed to saying such things lest they be true, but we can look to the very words of Scripture! For so often is a book of Scripture judged inspired based upon it’s own claims. If mere words on a page can be deemed inspired by God by their claims, then what more a living creation of the Lord!
Since when does someone claiming to be inspired PROVE they are? Was Joseph Smith inspired merely because he said so and started the Mormons? Or was Mohammed inspired because he claimed revelations from God and founded Islam, too?
We know that the Catholic Church is inspired because it was founded directly by Christ on Peter and the Apostles and their successors. No other religious body in the world can claim it was founded by the Son of God himself.
