When we understand that no tradition of man can add anything of value to the plain and simple message of the Bible, we begin to understand its real purpose - to subvert that message, and render it null & void. There is virtually no aspect of Bible teaching that is not devalued in some way by Roman Catholic dogma.
It is a man-made substitute for Christianity, so it should do well. At least until it has to give an account of itself to the founder of the original gospel.
That's a 2-way street mate. I could ask you the same question. The final test is, 'what saith the Scripture'? Your dogma, insofar as it can be ascertained, is way off the pace when weighed against Biblical teaching. Your denial of Jesus' deity alone marks you out as thoroughly anti-Christian.
As a past master, I'm sure you could teach me a thing or two about twisting Scripture. You had to do it at least 8 times for all those passages that explicitly refer to Jesus as God - I'm sure you know them all. You then had to do it another 100 or so more times for all those other passages that directly and indirectly affirm Jesus' deity. You probably know most of those too, if not all of them.
My only doubts would be about the value of such lessons. I would not want to be associated with such a cavalier attitude to God's word.
Relevance? Since when did I deny that Jesus is the Messiah? Yet again you demonstrate your talent for setting up straw men. That may impress all 2 of your acolytes; it cuts no ice with me.
Did I pass?
I'll let you do all the worrying for both of us.
There's only 2 things to worry about - whether you're well or whether you're ill.
If you're well there's nothing to worry about.
If you're ill there's only 2 things to worry about - whether you get better or whether you die.
If you get better, there's nothing to worry about.
If you die, there's only 2 things to worry about - whether you go to heaven or hell.
If you go to heaven, there's nothing to worry about.
If you go to hell, you'll be so busy shaking hands with old friends, you won't have time to worry.
So why worry?
