    I'm curious; how many of the NT epistles do you dismiss as non-authoritative, in whole or in part? You obviously dismiss all of the instruction on the qualifications for Bishops, Presbyters and Deacons etc. So do you reject those letters in their entirety or just the portions dealing with church leadership/authority?

    Which brings up an even more interesting conundrum as to the authority of the epistles in general. Do you know why those letters were considered to be authoritative and worthy to be included in the canon? How do you reconcile your rejection of authority with the authoritative nature of the canon itself?

    I count all the letters of the bible as truth.
    I also see the exterior meanings MAN has added to the epistles ... Its why they Hid the scriptures for so many centuries..
    To keep people from seeing the plain writen truth .that man has no place lording it over the body of CHRIST..
    That Jesus alone is the ONLY head over his body and he governs it by HIS Holy Spirit.
    Such as he raises up are foundations beneath to lift the body not to dominate it.
    Just as the Ird Jesus said ... To exercise authority ,to lord it over.. " it is NOT so with you...

    It is not unpredictable that a lot of those unwilling to step back and ask the questions
    Are those from certain circles who have been taught that the church itself is an authority over the church.. But the scripture never states that.

    In any ones body.. Ones own body does not have authority over itself .but everyones body is ruled only by its head.
    The body is not ruled by the body ..
