Episcopal priests and dating
However, I don't agree with of the time that you are presented with a verse that "proves" the Church wrong, either: a) the verse has been taken out of context, or b) the verse simply doesn't say what they are trying to make it say.#2) And this flows right from #1, the Catholic Church can be defended from the Bible better than any other Christian faith tradition can be.But rather, an apology in the ancient sense of the word - which is to make a reasoned defense of something or someone.In ancient times, the word apology referred to the case a lawyer would make on behalf of his client.
Someone please tell me, how do myths commit personal sins? The "literal" meaning of a passage of Scripture is the meaning that the author of that passage of Scripture intended to convey.Natural apologetics builds the case for truths we can know from the "natural" light of reason.Truths that can be known without any divine intervention. Because if we are sincere in our desire to share the truth with others..share Jesus Christ with others..Jesus will find a way to make something good come out of even our mistakes.Paul says, "..we preach Christ crucified..." Why does Paul preach Christ crucified?Doesn't he know Jesus has been raised from the dead? But, he knows that it is through the power of the crucified Christ on the cross that the bonds of sin and death are broken.
