Thank you, but I’ll stick with Scripture.
This wouldn't be a problem if you didn't *interpret* the Scriptures. But, you *do* interpret the Scriptures, through many different grids (Calvinism being one of them). Your refusal to study the fathers is what prevents you from looking at Scripture through a *different* paradigm, namely, the one the fathers (who were very close to the Apostles) held. Studying the fathers is what helped me (previously a Calvinist and Presbyterian) *see* that I was placing a Reformed interpretive grid upon the Scripture, and seeing all of Scripture through those glasses. Reading the fathers also helped me see the real possibility of a different way of fitting it all together, one that made better sense of the whole.
You mean that you never accept prayers from anyone?? Or that you never ask anyone to pray for you??
You just read scripture??
There are Holy Scpripture references in thos Early Fathers threads also. Too bad you didn’t check it out.
