I do indeed remember it, however you will notice that the statement was in italics which means that I was repeating your statement... I went on to say, however that god chose some men to interpret better than others....if you put 100 people in a room, give them a scripture to interpret, do you really think that all, even though all are Christians, will come up with identical interpretations.....I'd think not.
I, and most Christians rely on help from those taught to interpret scripture, they and others before them devote their lives to studying the bible and its writings...Catholics wrote the new testament and it is a wise choice to allow them to interpret it. God used mankind to bring forth His message, to write it and interpret it so that all could understand it. To suppose that you are as capable as the learned men of church history to do so is arrogant at best.
Oh it does? Since when?
See post #336 where apparently you are saying that all the italicized words were mine?
Never would I say those first few "groups" of words, they are completely false and are just the made up ideas of men.
Remember, "Christians allow ONLY the Holy Spirit to interpret Scripture, Catholics use men."
I am a Christian, not a Catholic.
now you are stooping to the mechanics and their useage in FR....low blow, if I , or you, make a typo or an error in posting, it changes nothing....I am right and you are wrong....that's a fact, I am Catholic and you are some denomination...too bad....so sad.
Again, you have posted your words mixed with mine in italic after stating that you use italics ONLY to quote another poster, not yourself.
The infantile excuses and arrogance of Catholic posters who post false quotes and follow the teachings of men instead of God is appalling.
The real low bow is stating a rule used and violating it and then blaming it on another poster.
Catholics that stay on the pabulum of the Word of God and follow the false teachings of men instead of the Word of God are missing the awesome relationship with God that is offered to Christians.
Your quote, the most awesome post I have seen by a Catholic on FR:
Christians allow ONLY the Holy Spirit to interpret Scripture, Catholics use men.
The Truth of Scriptures and the Holy Spirit helping others post that Truth is really cool.
Again, I strongly object to quotes attributed to me containing Catholic talking points of men which I do not follow.
Read your Bible and you will see that the Apostles referred to all Christians at the time (they were NOT Catholics as claimed in Catholic rewritten history) as saints, any denomination (Catholicism being the first denomination of Christianity which was countered by born again Christian followers of Jesus) that raises up only a few as "saints" who then dress and act like Pharisees does not understand the simple faith taught by Jesus.
May God bless you with teachings grounded in the Word through the Holy Spirit.

A false and directly personal attack and mind reading which is not allowed on the Religion forum. I will not report it as it should stand to show the difference between Christians and the arrogance of some Catholics.
Ignorance can not be pled as I have declared over and over again that I am not Protestant nor do I follow any denomination, just the Word of God, Jesus.
sorry about saying that you were of a denomination...as an individual interpreter of scripture, you are pretty much on your own....whatever you say....you believe....never mind the 2,000 ywars of learned men and women who have studied scripture endlessly and have come to intelligeng conclusions....many of these people have devoted their entire lives to this end and you seem to feel that you can do it better....maybe you can, who am I to judge, but if I had to bet my spiritual life on it, and I do, I'd stick with fathers of the church..like Aquinas ....
Stop right there. I, as a Christian, allow the Holy Spirit to interpret Scripture, not myself and certainly not men as Catholicism does.
I have posted this information to you many times, so please stop thinking you can read my mind and then make false statements about me.
Interesting, after "apologizing" you then make another false statement about me. Kinda like leftist politicians "apologize"
...never mind the 2,000 ywars of learned men and women who have studied scripture endlessly and have come to intelligeng conclusions
Yes, I imagine those that wrote the Catholic version of Christainity did it with their intelligeng. That is an excellent word to describe those that "interpret" for Catholic Church doctrine.
....maybe you can, who am I to judge
Oh like judging that I am a Protestant, that I am an "individual interpreter of scripture" and that I am a member of a denomination etc?
You seem to have no problem judging others, although incorrectly. It's kinda hard to see around that beam, huh?
...if I had to bet my spiritual life on it, and I do, I'd stick with fathers of the church..like Aquinas ....
Big mistake IMO, they will not lead you to salvation.
Again, I prefer the Biblical approach to understanding what God wants...through the Holy Spirit's interpretation.
I'm amazed that anyone would bet there eternal salvation on mere men. Or anything for that matter. Just WOW.
