I keep on reading this question, “Where is that in scripture?”
Where does God say that all teachings have to be in scripture, or even that any teaching has to be in scripture?
Didn’t the Holy Spirit teach “all things” to the apostles?
But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. (john 14:26)
Didn’t Jesus teach his apostles “everything.”
15Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. (john 15:15)
And since Jesus came to proclaim the Gospel, the “Good News” of salvation, doesn’t that mean the apostles learned “all things” refer to salvation, and thus they learned everything concerning salvation directly from God, that is from Jesus and the Holy Spirit?
Thus since Jesus founded His Church upon the apostles and told them, in Mark 16:15-16
“Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned”.
Doesn’t that mean salvation comes from hearing the Gospel, the word of God, His Church teaches and preaches, that is handed down in sacred Tradition?
The Church teaches that the Gospel the apostles “preached”, not wrote is the source of all saving truth;
75. "Christ the Lord, in whom the entire Revelation of the most high God is summed up, commanded the apostles to preach the Gospel, which had been promised beforehand by the prophets, and which he fulfilled in his own person and promulgated with his own lips. In preaching the Gospel, they were to communicate the gifts of God to all men. This Gospel was to be the source of all saving truth and moral discipline.
And since no where does Jesus say salvation comes from believing scripture, reading scripture, studying scripture, studing the bible, reading the bible, believing the bible, then why does any teaching have to be in the bible?
Obviously God Himself says salvation comes from believing the Gospel, the word of God that was taught and preached, that is, the Catholic faith. This Gospel is presented in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This Catechism is a summery of what the apostles taught, and it is also a deeper penetration of the Gospel that they taught. The Church already knows the entire Gospel, and hands it down in Tradition. So where do men get this man made teaching that doctrines MUST be found in scripture? Jesus certainly never taught it. Who made up this teaching???
