For ‘apostate’ discussion with our illustrious fundamentalist brethren.
But ... wait ... didn't he say we should not trust the Church Fathers?!
This is hysterical!
Why don’t we just change the name of this website to
I mean, whoever said Catholic-bashing is the last remaining prejudice that is still socially acceptable, knows what they’re talkin’ about.
But .... where does it say that in the Bible?
I served as lector today and the reading was 1 Thessalonians 2:1-13. In it, St. Paul notes: And for this reason we too give thanks to God unceasingly, that, in receiving the word of God from hearing us, you received not a human word but, as it truly is, the word of God, which is now at work in you who believe.
No mention of reading the Bible.
Where do I order the Jack Chick comic book “The Death Cookie”?
Oh, and who compiled the Bible?

Great title, too “The Church Fathers: A Door to Rome”! And he did the honor of citing the Church Fathers ... lol!
“The term church fathers is a misnomer that was derived from the Catholic Churchs false doctrine of hierarchical church polity. These men were not fathers of the church in any scriptural sense and did not have any divine authority. They were merely church leaders from various places who have left a record of their faith in writing.”
YOU MEAN LIKE THE GUY WHO”S WRITING THIS ARTICLE?!?!
The mind/head boggles at the self-contradiction.
Christian theology wasnt formed fully ex nihilo. If you ignore post-Scriptural writings, you can toss out all the protestant theologians as well.
I agree. Errors have their source. It would be so nice to have my doctrine delivered to me on a platter by traditions. It takes a lot of work to go back to basics. I have to struggle with meaning a lot, but the end result is closer to what was intended than the reliance on traditions. There are so many errors even in non-religious society that just are accepted as truth because that’s what everyone says and what everyone seems to have always said. I see the same thing going on in religious traditions versus relying on the source.
Luther et al, did not know that in Jesus’ times, there was ascetics among the Jews,including of course John. . In fact so were many of the prophets lived ascetic lives. In fact, what was Jesus if not an. ascetic? Jesus and Francis would have gotten along just swell. Luther just studied the Jews he knew, assuming that all Jews, at all times, thought as they did.
