My Last Post

...on this blog.

I just want to say, Rochester, Minnesota, whoever you are, thank you. To my knowledge, you have appeared on every single one of my posts. I have no idea who you are. I am technically challenged; you may be a blog author that I follow and I haven't connected the dots. For a while I wondered if you were my brother's fiance, but I don't think so. In the end, I have no idea but I have enjoyed the mystery.

My new blog is called Scrivenery.

I LOVE the new blog but I can't comment there. Have you turned off comments?

I'm glad you're changing things up a bit. Better to allow you to be you inside and outside of your relationship.

I love your writings. Keep up the greatness.

TRUTH IS IN THE SCRIPTURES-THE BIBLE

The truth about God and His plan of salvation and instructions for living the Christian life is found only in the Scriptures. The Scriptures are found in the Bible and the Bible alone.

2 Peter 3:15-16....Paul....16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which those who are untaught and unstable twist, to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.

The letters and words of the apostles were Scriptures. Man-made creed books, denominational catechisms, church statements of faith, the man-made traditions of the Pharisees and scribes were not nor are they now considered Scriptures.

2 Timothy 3:15 and that from childhood you have know the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

The Scriptures were able to make Timothy wise for salvation. There is no mention of the Roman Catholic Catechism nor any other denominational creed book that was able to make Timothy wise for salvation. Timothy's mother was not reading from the man-made books of traditions written by the scribes and elders. (SEE: Mark 7:1-9)

1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried , and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,

The death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus was according to the Scriptures. The apostle Paul taught according to the Scriptures, he did not teach according to church catechisms, Bible commentaries, books written about the Bible, church statements of faith, creed books, nor any other man-made opinions.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SALVATION AND ALL OF GOD'S DOCTRINES ARE FOUND IN THE SCRIPTURES AND THE SCRIPTURES ALONE.SCRIPTURES ARE FOUND IN THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE. If what you are being taught is contrary to the Scriptures, THEN IT IS NOT GOD'S WORD!

SCRIPTURES:

Romans 15:4
Acts 18:28
Romans 16:26
Acts 17:11
Acts 17:2
John 5:39
Mathew 21:24
Matthew 26:56
Matthew 12:24
Luke 24;47

John 7:38 "He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water."

It is as the Scripture had said. It is not as the denominational creed books have said. The Roman Catholic church catechism nor any other man-made creed book is Scripture.

Acts 8:35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.

NOTHING HAS CHANGED IN THE LAST TWO THOUSAND YEARS. JESUS SHOULD STILL BE PREACHED USING THE SCRIPTURES.

DID THE 1ST CENTURY CHURCH HAVE NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES?

The prevailing thought of many is that since the Bible was not canonized until sometime between 300 and 400 A.D. that the church of Christ did not have New Covenant Scriptures as their guide for faith and practice. That is simply factually incorrect.

The Lord's church of the first 400 years did not rely on the man-made traditions of men for New Testament guidance.

Jesus gave the terms for pardon 33 A.D. after His death and resurrecting. (Mark 16:16) All the words of Jesus were Scripture.Jesus did not have to wait for canonization of the New Testament in order for His word to be authorized.

The terms for pardon were repeated by the apostle Peter 33 A.D. on the Day of Pentecost. (Acts 2:22-42) The teachings of the apostles were Scripture. The words of the apostles were Scripture before they were canonized.

The apostle Peter said the apostle Paul's words were Scripture. (2 Peter 3:15-16...just as also our beloved brother Paul , according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you, 16 as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand,which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures...

The apostle Paul's letters and words were Scriptures when he wrote and spoke them. Paul did not have to wait for canonization to authorize his doctrine.

John 14:25-26 'These things I have spoken to you while abiding with you. 26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to you remembrance all that I said to you.

The words and writings of the apostles were Scripture and they did not have to wait for canonization to be deemed authoritative. The apostle did not use man-made creed books of the church or man-made oral traditions to teach the gospel of the New Covenant.

Did the early church have written New testament Scriptures? Yes, and they were shared among the different congregations. (Colossians 4:16 When the letter is read among you, have it read in the church of the Laodiceans and you, for your part read my letter that is coming from Laodica.) Paul's letters were Scripture and they were read in different churches.

They were New Testament Scriptures long before they were canonized.

Matthew A.D. 70
Mark A.D. 55
Luke between A.D. 59 and 63
John A.D. 85
Acts A.D. 63
Romans A.D. 57
1 Corinthians A.D. 55
2 Corinthians A.D. 55
Galatians A.D. 50
Ephesians A.D. 60
Philippians A.D. 61
Colossians A. D. 60
1 Thessalonians A.D. 51
2 Thessalonians A.D. 51 or 52
1 Timothy A.D. 64
2 Timothy A.D. 66
Titus A.D. 64
Philemon A.D. 64
Hebrews A.D. 70
James A.D. 50
1 Peter A.D. 64
2 Peter A.D. 66
1 John A.D. 90
2 John A.d. 90
3 John A.D. 90
Jude A.D. 65
Revelation A.D. 95

All 27 books of the New Testament were Scripture when they were written. They did not have wait until they were canonized before they became God's word to mankind.

Jesus told the eleven disciples make disciples and teach them all that He commanded. (Matthew 28:16-19) That was A.D. 33, They were teaching New Covenant Scripture from A.D. 33 forward. The apostles did not wait to preach the gospel until canonization occurred 300 to 400 years later.

THE WORDS OF JESUS AND THE APOSTLES WERE SCRIPTURE WHEN THEY WERE SPOKEN AND WRITTEN. THEY DID NOT HAVE TO WAIT FOR CANONIZATION TO BE THE AUTHORIZED WORD OF GOD.

MAN-MADE CREED BOOKS AND MAN-MADE ORAL TRADITION WAS AND IS NOT SCRIPTURE.
