Catholics can't answer this Posted on May 23, 2023 by Anonymous Name one sentence outside of the Bible that's the objective Word of God. You can't.
Every true sentence is the word of god because god is truth itself.
Give me one sentence
The first sentence of that post.
Oh? Did God reveal that truth to you?
We're talking about special revelation champ
You never said that
Yes. Because God is truth itself.
That's what the words "word of God" mean.
If it's not revealed by God how do you know it's objectively from God?
Catholics don't consider anything outside the Bible to be the word of God, retard
So if only the bible is the Word of God shouldn't it be the ultimate authority on dogma not the Pope?
Scripture is authoritative, it's just not the only authority because it can't interpret itself or define doctrine on it's own, that is why we have Church which is infallible due to being preserved by the Holy Spirit.
We don't believe it's the only authority.
Correct, and neither do we, we just have the additional belief that the interpretive authority of our Church can define things infallibly.
You still believe it can interpret itself and define doctrine on it's own. But there are many “Bible groups” who do not follow God
>You still believe it can interpret itself and define doctrine on it's own
In the sense it is sufficient to provide those, yes. God gave us His word for a reason.
>But there are many “Bible groups” who do not follow God
>In the sense it is sufficient to provide those, yes
It can’t though. An interpretation requires a church to do the interpreting. Scripture alone can’t provide that. From interpretation stems doctrine
Protestants cant answer this! Name a verse in the bible that states sola scriptura is the doctrine all christians should adhere to!
John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God" if the Word is God then how can it not have supreme authority?
so you believe in two gods, Word and God?
I find it hard to think about the authorship of the Bible
In what way do you find it difficult?
Catholics cant answer this! Name a verse in the bible that states all Christians shall kneel to the bishop of Rome.
Matthew 10:40 He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.
>receiveth Him that sent me
that one about Peter being a rock
OK protestants, why did Jesus say he was going to build his church on the rock of Peter. hmmm? You've been played for absolute fools.
Because Peter was the top elder in the Jerusalem church, Jesus never said he played the role of a monarch who everybody had to obey and could make infallible statements. Peter acted hypocritically because of the pressure of "people from James", how did James have that power if Peter was the undisputed head of the church and vicar of Christ? How did Paul have the authority to rebuke him to his face? Paul wasn't even a Bishop, and started preaching before even contacting the Jerusalem apostles, he didn't need Peter's authority to do it.
St. Peter is the rock upon which the Jesus built his Church. Although all of the Apostles were given the ability to heal the sick and drive out evil spirits only Peter was given the ability to absolve people of their sins as Christ could. He was first among equals. Nobody needs the permission of the Peter or his successors to preach for did not John the Baptist do miracles without the permission of Christ?
Mark 9:38 John said to Him, “Teacher, we saw someone casting out demons in Your name, and we tried to prevent him because he was not following us.”
Mark 9:39 “Do not stop him,” Jesus said. “For no one who does a miracle in my name can in the next moment say anything bad about me."
Only when speaking From the Chair (ex cathedra) is the Pope infallible and only in regards to "defining a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church." Essentially he makes a statement on the doctrine of the Church that cannot be argued against. The Pope cannot be nor is he infallible in any other way or on any other subject.
He didn't, he built it on the truth of Peter's confession and named him after it.
well, why do you think we compiled the Bible?
True Catholics can answer this. LARPers cannot.
