    There IS a difference.

    And of course, not believing that Scripture is wholly true and sufficient allows a denomination to do anything it wants, "led" by a tradition (so called).
    ...and believing each man can interpret Scripture on his own has led tens of thousands of Protestant denominations.

    Catholicism wins...again

    Really???

    A curable condition, would you say?? Most "conditions" can be treated. How about this one?

    Interesting.

    Uh huh. Well, if I tell you the name of the persons that lead our church, it would not help you at all. You do not know them. How is that relevant to our discussion? And our religion is well, umm, Christian.

    Good, so that settles it. You now owe an apology, as the Pope said.

    Just like Barry you don't provide even a name of your Church or the structure of who leads it. I find that interesting.

    Well, the name of our church is -___________ Gospel Church.
    The structure of our church is as follows -
    Board of Directors (made up of multiple elders), Council (made up of elders and pastors), Congregational Board (made up of elders, deacons and pastor), and under that various committees and fellowships. Does this help?

    I didn't think so. What are you trying to figure out? Are you looking for something to attack or tear down?
    Looking for something you can point your finger at?
    I can provide you with plenty of that if that is what you want. WHat is it that you really want to know? Ask away.

    First Baptist Church.

    Leaders?? The deacons board and the pastor.

    The church is autonomous, but is part of the Fellowship of Baptist Churches in Canada.

    One thing RW is good at. Controlling his own narrative. It's what the RCC has done through the centuries.

    The problem with people is that they like to hear good news about their bad habits. So they twist the Scriptures to support their bad habits. That is one reason you have different interpretations which in turn lead to different traditions. It's not God's wants for man that has changed. It's man's wants for himself that leads to error, deception and indeed, heresy.

    Translation: "RWGR is right, I can't debate RCC dogma, so I'm going to throw out some un-provable claim to try and divert attention away from my deficiencies regarding this"

    Yes, Blue will not accept the Pope, who can trace his lineage to Peter, is any kind of authority figure when it comes to the Bible and God...however, Joe the Plumber and Pete the electrician, who are members of his church's council, now THEY are authority figures when it comes to biblical interpretation and God's will!

    Thank you, Blue, thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    Westboro believes in Sola Scriptura, just like BM and Blue.

    That's kind of telling.

    Still arguing like a child. Flood the boards, and shout louder. Watch. For every post I write, he will write 4 or 5. And if I say anything at all about the RCC, he will pull 5 or 6 anti-protestant links off of the internet. That's why I don't argue with him. He's never learned how to debate like a man.

    ..and the inevitable personal attack, thinking it hides his glaring deficiencies when he tries to take on Catholic dogma.

    Multiple people responded to me, champ, so I responded back.

    Again, your seething anger right now is telling.

    I must have missed that.

    Or, truthfully, it never happened.
