Isaiah 55:8: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Isaiah 55:9: For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Isaiah 55:10: For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
Isaiah 55:11: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
God's WORD and thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
God's WORD is always right first and above man or any organization; we have only to follow God's WORD which is following the truth of the WORD of God and His Spirit will teach us, not men's infallable spirits and thoughts...
You said that you have read the Early Church Father; whoopee, I read God's WORD to get correct Bible doctrine and teachings, not relying on men's infallable spirits and thoughts... I also own and read the Ante-Nicene Early Church Father's writings; but I hold with them that God's WORD is higher and more esteemed, something more people on this board should do before it's too late for their soul...
