translating from the church fathers instead of the Bible.

I'd like to see where does the Bible support Baptist ecclesiology. I can show you where it supports Catholic ecclesiology. However, when the claim is historical, such as that the practices and theologies of the Early Church were similar to Baptist, then the answer has to be historical also, and the Church Fathers provide it directly, in the negative.

Again ... your authority rests with the Church Fathers, not detailed exegesis of the text ... supporting my assertion.
