    CL, I think you should ban yourself from using words over three syllables. Before you post, ask yourself: is anyone going to understand this? Because, as far as I can tell, neither jonhowe nor TER did. Here's how I would put it: Yes, because you're taking it too literally in English, and in 21st Century American modern cultural context. The books of the Bible were not written in English. They were definitely not written in the 21st century. They were not written in America.

    Hi NC, I suggest you study a little more about Church history, especially the vitally important formative years of the first 4 centuries. Your comments above suggest you have very little idea of what it meant to the early Christians to be an ekklesia and how the Apostles and their direct successors shepered the flock given to them by Christ our God.

    What I said was rude. Forgive me. I just mean to say that you are not addressing this topic as a Christian, but more as an Israelite of the Old Testament. These laws in Deutoronomy do not necessarily apply anymore.

    Christ came a lamb, in a manger, a baby in a cave. To those who sensed the sign of the times, He did make an impression. To those who saw Him raised from the dead, He changed their entire lives. To those who did not believe, He was barely something to mention : A magician, or charlatan, not worthy of the ink and scroll. Christ came a lamb. He is coming back a lion.

    Yes. That is why I was sure to write down that the Holy Scriputres are the ultimate written authority, and why I explained that it is the Holy Spirit which gives anything in creation authority, including the Scriptures and the Church. I agree. Thankfully, God established a Church in which the gates of hell would not overcome so that the wolves in sheep clothing and false prophets might be revealed when they teach things against what the saints before them taught and the holy matrys died confessing. If that is the way you understand religion, then I agree, it is similar.

    Maybe you need an app to make you like apps. Sounds like you are using apps far too seldom. Ha! Thumbs-up. I can solve this problem. I know exactly what to do. You can get an App to send you Text Twitsograms whenever someone posts an Alert about a new Pic or Meme of a redbud on to FaceyPin. Doesn't that sound great?

    God Himself is the ultimate authority. Right? I mean, if God came down and said, "You guys got it wrong; this is what I really meant," we'd immediately jump to it and say, "My bad!" We wouldn't try to explain to Him, "But we can clearly read in Romans chapter....." Would we? Or would we? That's what religion is. That's what the word means, in its true sense. The root of the word is somehow related to ligament, I believe. It's the strands and ropes that tie your life together.

    The Holy Scriptures are the ultimate written authority. But the Holy Spirit, Who is God of God, gives it this authority, just as the Holy Spirit gave the first council in Jerusalem it's authority. The Scriptures can unfortunately be misinterpreted and mistranslated. In order to discern the correct interpretation and correct understanding, we must above all pray for the Holy Spirit to enlighten us, and then seek the Church, which St. Paul says, is the pillar and foundation for truth. This is what St. Paul did and what he and the Apostles taught. It is easy for us to individually misinterpret something (because our framework and knowledge and wisdom is limited to our own personal experience, and we are sinful and imperfect beings), that is why we must seek the community of the faithful and especially the pious and graced amongst them, and seek what their voices say, to learn what the consensus and voice of the Church is. This is what St. Paul did after his conversion. Although he was graced by the Holy Spirit and baptized and beheld the risen Lord, he still travelled to Jerusalem to consult with those who were the leaders of the faith, those who were before him, so that he would not preach in vain things he believed which were actually against the witness of the Church and the teaching of the saints. Though full of zeal and purpose, reborn a Christian true believer, and graced with the Holy Spirit from God on high, he still understood the importance of self-examination and humility and obedience to those before and above him. We may believe we are inspired by the Holy Spirit, but our own passions and desires can also cloud our thoughts and distance us from truth. The Spirit of God is the Spirit of Truth and not division. So, when we believe or interpret something which is different from what the voice of the Church proclaims and has proclaimed, we must be ever cautious lest we are preaching a new gospel and distancing ourselves further from the truth and that holy communion. There is no religion in Christianity. There is a way of life, which is as a member of the body of Christ, the Church, which is the communion of united believers around Christ Himself. Christ said He came to establish His Church, which is to be His Bride in the culmination of this age. We should then take seriously, as St. Paul did, and as all the holy men and women since the day of Pentecost did, to deny ourselves, humble ourselves, and in faith and trust, enter into this communion, united in mind, spirit, and flesh, as one body partaking in one divine and sacramental love which is the Holy Trinity. For this is the Kingdom of Heaven, as taught by the Saints, to be united with God.

    Thank you! I guess the next questions is, what scriptures were they studying? As there was no official canon of Scripture for the Jews at that time, I would guess it included the Prophetical books, the Psalms, and the Wisdom books in addition to the Torah. St. Paul was a Pharisee (who were regarded as the most noble of the Jewish sects, notwithstanding that Christ reprimanded them about hypocrisy), and they held on to the dual authority of the Written Law (the Torah) and the Oral Law (the traditions and teachings and other revered texts from the fathers and holy men before them). Likewise, within the Christian Church, the Holy Bible is authoritative (the most, it can be argued) as are also the teachings of the Saints and Holy Traditions which followed the time period of the Scriptures and which the believers have held to be God-pleasing, God-inspired and beneficial to the faithful.

    Acts 17:10-11 The thing they are famous for is that they "searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so." There are even Berean churches (I've been to one) named in honor of these people, because they want to be studying the scriptures daily just as the Bereans did.

    The ones from Northwest Territorial Mint and APMEX I would dare say are almost certainly genuine, without even seeing them, just as a rule. Perhaps it's a problem with the surface you're dropping them on, or some other testing problem. Have someone experienced in precious metals have a look at them and coach you a bit. The friendly local jewelry store is always a good bet! I'll bet if you bring in your coins and show the jeweler, you will walk out feeling a lot happier, confident your coins are true silver.

    I don't understand. Who are the Bereans and what did they check against what? The Church is full of sinners. Christ did not say that there would not be troubles or difficulties. In fact, He warned them it would be the case. That the forces of hell try to destroy the Church, that is a given. This group of men and women and children called the Church has had to endure through innumerable challenges and pressures and sinful people doing sinful things both within and without. What distinguishes Her, however, is that She is not overcome, as Christ promised. Look then and learn where such a Church exists, whose saints span every era, through the rise and fall of Empires and Kingdoms, through glory and subjugation, in basilicas and in chains, through every century going back, and then from them, learn the correct doctrines so that you too might be worthy to become a martyr for Christ.

    The Holy Spirit is what intervened in the Council of Jerusalem (the first recorded synod). Likewise, He has continued to act within the life and experiences of the Church. Even after the last page of the Book of Acts.

    The Scriptures are one long history of switches from not only institutional polity, but from Convenants! The acts of the Apostle's did not end on the last page of Acts. But even there, we find the forming of the ecclesiology of the Christian Church, that by the turn of the century, when Apostles still lived, the basic structure (which is still used in the Orhodox Church) is appearing. Namely, one Bishop per city. And because of this conciliar and synodical structure, the Church has remained united even from the first century, because the Head is Jesus Christ. Not hidden, or underground, but visibly and outwardly, whose real Saints shed real blood on the earth to witness to the faith of their fathers.

    Exactly, which is why the Church developed into one Bishop over a geographical area. To prevent factionalism and to protect the deposit of the truth, as guardians of the truth, in the communion of the Saints, in the eschaton as the people of God, in the Kingdom of Heaven. The Church developed its synodical system by the grace of the Holy Spirit. This was the movement of the Holy Spirit, the work of God, working within the body. It was the people of God uniting in order and faith and confession, speaking against the current of this sinful age.

    People have the capacity to reason. You don't need to always show them the whole thing. A strong statement telling them that they are wrong is often all you need to do. Then they do the rest, at least when the other person can think.

    If they're feeling like idiots, they will feel bad. Feeling bad makes people try to do something different to feel better. So they might just go ahead and think and stop being idiots.
