And Catholicism is a wicked heresy, but now that we have the name-calling out of the way, let’s tackle the verses in question, shall we? John 1:1 should help with that confusion re: Christ and God. Also Genesis 1 is quite clear. Scripture always refers to Scripture - like “iron sharpening iron”. It is not a buffet line to pick and choose what you wish it said. Something Catholics would do well to remember when handling it...
John 1:1-14 “In [a]the [b]beginning [c]was [d]that Word, and that Word was [e]with God, and that [f]Word was God.
2 This same was in the beginning with God.
3 [g]All [h]things were made by it, and [i]without it [j]was made nothing that was made.
4 [k]In it [l]was life, and that life was [m]the light of men.
5 [n]And that light shineth in the wilderness, and the darkness [o]comprehendeth it not.
6 ¶ [p]There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 This same came for a witness, to bear witness of that light, that all men [q]through him might believe.
8 He was not [r]that light, but was sent to bear witness of that light.
9 [s]This was [t]that true light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
10 [u]He was in the world, and the world was made by him: and the world knew him not.
11 He came [v]unto his own, and his own received him not.
12 [w]But as many as received him, to them he gave [x]prerogative to be the sons of God, even to them that believe in his Name,
13 Which are born not of blood, nor of the [y]will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
14 [z]And that Word was made [aa]flesh, and [ab]dwelt among us, (and we saw the [ac]glory thereof, [ad]as the glory of the only begotten Son of the Father) [ae]full of grace and truth.”
The fact Protestantism can not prove its doctrines with Scripture is where Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons come from.
Please demonstrate where the Scripture states “ Scripture
always refers to Scripture.”
Trust me, this is a tar baby you can not extricate yourself from. If it were, Protestants would answer with Scripture rather than accusation predicated on interpretation of Scripture, most of the time.
