Hello, I have a big issue with protestantism, and it is a problem that has to do even with the most enlightened protestants, with theology degrees and who are in protestantism for decades.
The problem is, they seem to intentionally ignore the fact that 2 people who honestly seek for God, and pray, and honestly study and try to understand the bible can have 2 different interpretations. It’s amazing you see, everywhere i see protestant pastors saying: “The Bible means that… The bible means this… Catholicism is not biblical.” But I say to myself: (Edited)? Why they are talking as they had an authority of what the bible really means? They don’t see that even protestants don’t agree with the same passages? And that if sola scriptura ultimately is a personal interpretal so they cannot say with confidence that someone is wrong with his interpretation because it is always just a case of different personal interpretations.
I was watching Bill Nye and Ken Ham Debate, and Ken Ham said his intepretations of the world of 6000 years were literal interpretations of the bible, and that he is a Christian and he will not change his mind about this subject because that’s God’s Words. You see he doesn’t EVEN consider the possibility that the Genesis account can have a metaphorical interpetation, that other denominations consider this a metaphorical, that even Other Christians accept evolution, he thinks he is Right, that’s the true interpretation, he does not even consider that other christians can diverge in his interpretation, and it is not just with Ken Ham, it is everywhere.
Really, It’s amazing, it happens even with enlightened protestants, protestants theologians, it is everywhere, I can’t understand why they don’t see this, I don’t know if it is some kind of problem with them, how they don’t see the implications of the sola scriptura, the fact that people will diverge even more, that they will create any kinds of denominations, and so on? Anyone can help me?
