“Bro, check out my post #41. Then go do your own research. Not only did Luther defend catholic doctrine about Mary, so did alot of his heretical constituents.”
Post 42 WAS my response to #41.
As to doing my own research, I won’t look farther than my own Bible. If its not in the Bible, Its not true.
Purgatory isn’t in the Bible. Its a fable. false. a lie.
Nowhere is Mary said to be sinless or a perpetual virgin.
and no one has shown me a single verse that shows prayers offered to the deceased.
Mary is a sinner like me. We will see her in heaven because she was obedient to God. She is not a co-redemtrix, she is just my sister in Christ: nothing more.
You catholic apologists need to get some BIBLICAL backing for your arguments. Words of this guy or that mean nothing.
I’m sure you’ve heard all this before. You know the catholic church is responsible for you having a bible?
Do you believe in the Trinity? You know the word Trinity is not in the bible?
What did the people do for the first few hundered years when there was no bible?
References to purgatory are in the bible. You believe in the Trinity and that’s not in the bible, yet there are references to the Trinity.
You, in a sense, are a ‘co-redemptor’, you co-operate in the work of redemption. Which Christ sent us out to do. You also, in a sense, are a ‘mediator’ when you agree to pray for other people. What’s the big deal? Just because you don’t understand it, and I’m sure you haven’t researched it, doesn’t mean it’s not biblically based.
And, you know, Luther even expounded on what happens when everybody interprets scripture for themselves, which you have done. How unfortunate, you don’t have the fullness of Christian faith. If you only knew what you were missing.
Since sola Scriptura is not in the Bible, it's not true....yet you insist on it, a false tradition of men.
