So the concept of Sola Scriptura, which I shall reference as SS from now on, has been in debate here for the past few days it seems. After reading and watching and debating on a few threads myself, I decided to make a new thread in regards to the issues with this concept.
This will be a long post, please read entirely before responding
First, here is the definition of SS: is a Christian theological doctrine which holds that the Christian Scriptures are the supreme authority in all matters...
Since we were discussing "judging" others:
A man who is a convicted of molesting a child was paroled and took up residence
in a middle class neighborhood.
Residents learned of his background was were extremely upset that the molester
was living near children.
Is this "judging" or is this good sense?
After some posts I will reveal what, if anything, happened.
Let me add that a convicted child molester was interviewed some years ago
on a t-v talk show and he said men who molest children NEVER...
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in San Francisco on August 23 upheld California’s wildly controversial Senate Bill 1172 that bars licensed counselors — including pastors — from assisting youth who want to change or reduce their same-sex attractions.

The Bible does NOT teach us 'not to judge'. It teaches us not to 'falsely judge'. In fact, the Bible teaches us to 'judge all things' according to 'righteousness' or 'truth'.
So where does this insistence come from when some insist that we are 'not to judge'?
It originated with the 'churches' that were not teaching the 'truth'. They didn't want the...
Sola Scriptura is overrated, the first christians didn't need it so neither do we.
Press conference in over 7 months.
What is up with that? How is she able to get her message out? And why is the mainstream media not up in arms over it?
This is not a Trump thread; if you want to talk about Trump start a separate thread.
I understand that in God's agape love we do have family caring and sharing and therefore phileo brotherly love.
And there is pleasure of intimacy . . . spiritual . . . "one spirit with Him" (1 Corinthians 6:17). But this is not the same as marital physical eros, but better and nicer. As we grow in God's agape love, then, we do experience special oneness and spiritual pleasure by being "one spirit with" our Groom Jesus, and with one another.
So, humanly, there is separation of human eros...
How could they be when even after all of the NT canon was finished, toward the end of the first century, most likely no single church had copies of every book in it? Also no church would know which writings weren't canon, since there were probably a ton of epistles going around, and there is not record of an epistle listing all the books of the New Testament and saying, "This is all you need."
