Don't laugh to hard, but you can pray for me all you want!
I was laughing with you, not at you
I've never found them lacking.
Is there anything new? I think you'll probably agree that someone can "find Christ" without any book at all (given the oral alternative, aforementioned). Moreover Paul found him with the OT and an experience (albeit he had heard biased reports).
I wouldn't say extrabiblical, But I wouldn't hang my hat on this verse except to say this shows there was a test and it is apparent that he did pass it later on in Acts.
Now, surprise surprise, I don't read it that way - LOL.
Anyhow, you don't hang your hat on it, so it's all good
Wow! Did I give you the impression that I have no relationship? I quoted that passage to say that I have the same confidence as Paul or I agree with him.
But my question would be, do you have confidence due to his arguments, or due to your personal relationship? Is your faith due to Christ or due to Paul's reasoning?
Remember you asked if I feared having the wrong Jesus.
Noooo! I meant that some fear that "others" haven't got Jesus. I'm concerned about how this makes them act.
What is worrisome to me, is that you seem to base your faith on experience, regardless of scripture. I hope I'm wrong. I believe that my experience should be tested by the sciptures.
On the contrary, I find that scripture attests experience, from relationship through to doctrine
LOL I been bitten by bigger snakes than you! ha! ha! hiss! hiss!
