Nothing flippant. It’s simply a response to the nonsense that you claim to refute what was said earlier. We believe that not everything the Christ said was recorded. To which you responded, that you were referring to His words not actions suggesting that all His words were written.

What was pointed out to you was the sheer absurdity of this proposition because it suggests that Christ remained speechless when He performed a vast array of acts. (John: 21: 25) Obviously since this cannot be the case, it proves the point that not everything the Christ said was written. This is why Peter and his successors were entrusted with teaching ONE TRUTH, not a multitude of interpretations that have been spawned since the schism. The Church as the rock, is founded on scripture, tradition as handed down by the successors of St. Peter, revelation, and experience and has become the mustard tree that now covers all corners of the world.

Maybe, if one is ignorant of scripture, or just refuses to believe it...

But for those of us who do read and believe the scriptures, we know that John recorded everything that Jesus ever said that we needed to know for our salvation...

Of course Jesus wasn't silent...But we know that Jesus did not say nor teach anyone that there was more than we can find in the written scriptures that is required knowledge for our salvation...

This is why Peter and his successors were entrusted with teaching ONE TRUTH, not a multitude of interpretations that have been spawned since the schism.

Fact is, Peter didn't teach all that much...His epistles are more of an encouragement than doctrine...

So Jesus taught scores of truths...Paul taught a multitude of truths as well as Matthew...What truth did Peter teach???

The Church as the rock, is founded on scripture, tradition as handed down by the successors of St. Peter, revelation, and experience and has become the mustard tree that now covers all corners of the world.

Your Catholic religion is not a rock and certainly is NOT THE ROCK...

Think about it...Don't you think Peter cringes and covers his face in embarrassment and shame every time some schmuck bows down to one of your popes and calls him 'holy father'???

Act 10:25 And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him.
Act 10:26 But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself also am a man.

Among MANY of the truths that the apostles taught, one was that Christians do not bow down to another man...
