Q and A with Luther

Post by Luther on Mon May 30, 2016 12:28 pm

Our church goes by no specific denomination structure which I feel is more biblical. Feel free to ask your questions.

Why do you feel that is more biblical? 

Do you agree with the Nicene Creed?

The early new testament church met in homes. Its a genuine worship instead of just a Sunday thing. There's many advantages. 

I do not know much about it, so I can't say.

What are some of the advantages? 

What are your views on Sola Scriptura? 

How often does your church take communion? 

Infant of believers baptism?

Like I said, only the people who want to be there will be there, thus making it genuine. There's also the aspect of no hindering formality. A church after all, is not the building. 

I believe that the scriptures are the supreme authority in all matters, and are the only thing required to walk the Christian life, so I would agree with it. 

Whenever the spirit leads. Which is normally once a month. 

We practice a biblical baptism, so believers, of course.

Where do you find the doctrine of Sola Scriptura in Scripture? 

So I've heard this from other people before and could you expand on how the spirit leads you to that and how that's decided? 

So you'd say infant baptism is not biblical?

Does it have to? The Bible doesn't explicitly say to refrain from following the Koran or other holy books and yet we can gather that it alone reigns supreme. 

When a brother feels it should be so, he'll make a request and if the rest of the brotherhood agrees to it, it's on. 

You'd say it is?

But the basis of Sola Scriptura is that you only hold beliefs found in Scripture, so if that belief isn't found in scripture then your whole belief system is flawed.

I would say infant baptism is biblical. 

On the topic of Sola Scriptura, who decides what makes up the canon of Scripture?

I would check out this link that Sola Scriptura actually sent me: http://www.bible.ca/sola-scriptura-proof-texts.htm

I would say infant baptism is biblical. 

How so?

I think infant baptism is biblical because the Bible talks about whole households being baptized and that would have included infants. Also we see from a very early time the Church doing infant baptisms. 

Okay so when did God decide what makes up the canon of Scripture and how did He communicate that to us?

He communicated scripture through Christ who passed it on to the apostles who wrote it down and it was preserved since then. 

I hope you never have children then. The fate of no free will and being forced to be apart of something.

But the Canon of Scripture was not put together until long after Christ had ascended into heaven. Plus there is no record of Christ telling the Apostles what to put into the Bible. You have to accept the fact that there is some authority and truth outside of Scripture. And that without an outside source there is nothing to prove the authenticity or authority of Scripture.

The still have a choice and free will. Being baptized does not remove anyone's free will. The purpose of Baptism is to cleanse us of original sin and to make us adopted children of God, why would we put that off? Wouldn't you want you children to grow up in a life of faith and holiness? Even if that means "forcing" them to be apart of it?
