I didn’t claim that my reason for trusting in Scripture is based on objective knowledge. You trust in the Traditions of the authorities in Rome, while I trust in the bible.
If you really come to think of it…you also view and interpret the Bible…by the tradition you learned from your protestant congregation.The Bible does not teach on its own…it needsa voice.
‘Tradition’ becomes whatever one agrees with in the history of the Church, such as the Nicene Creed or Chalcedonian Christology…What makes it ‘authoritative’ for Mohler is that it agrees with his interpretation of Scripture. If he encounters something in the tradition that seems extra-biblical or opposed to Scripture he rejects it. For that reason, [COLOR=“Blue”]tradition does not authoritatively guide his interpretation. His interpretation picks out what counts as tradition, and then this tradition informs his interpretation.[/COLOR]
My opening post was not a denial of my own presuppositions regarding my ultimate authority. My church isn’t infallible… period!
So…when the Holy Spirit guides…mistakes or errors can still occur?
I believe that Scripture is infallible,
Correction here…infallibility refers to actions…not Scriptures. Scripture is inerrant, not infallible.
and that the Holy Spirit is willing and able to guide His people to understand God’s word.
Can you provide chapter and verse for this one…where the HS guides the people to understand God’s word?
