What might we know [Biblically] but not know?

As a life long Catholic I regullary encounter unbelief in this or that from the bible. Ocassionaly from catholics and with GREAT regularty from other Christians.:shrug:

What teachings of Christ can be self-determined? PLEASE be specifc and give a reason for your position. And what teachings of Christ “don’t mean what they say/” And WHY not?

God Bless,
Pat

Sorry I’m not directly answering the question. Just wanted to say that I just try to obey the Church that Jesus Christ gave us. I know I usually screw things up when I put my own mind to it, so I say yes to Jesus and to His Church - the Catholic Church. Not an apologetically mature position, but it works for me.

This is not to say that scriptural knowledge and apologetics is not important, but I have the starting point that the Church is right, and then work from there, while others work from the premise that the Church is wrong and needs to defend its position.

God bless,
Bryan

I believe that the Protestant mind would do summersaults over this. My mind has no answer other than teachings of the Church are based on Scripture/Tradition/ as interpreted by the Magesterium. So whatever I have concerning questions about the Bible would cause me to see what the Church says and relieve my anxiety about my beliefs.

Protestants I would imagine may have difficulty with this.:slight_smile:

Well okay the teaching let no man call you Father. Jesus did not mean to not call any man Father. He was correcting Men who were taking the truth and twisting it for themself.

He meant what he was saying as far as his correction. But many Protestants take that a face value. And say Jesus said let no man call you Father, he said it, but did not mean not to call any man your Father.

Self determined.

The Church and I are One. He meant what he said, and it true.:smiley:
