Haha! I have no such authority. The words of Christ and the Apostle Paul appear to limit salvation to this life only.

The Holy Bible teaches that "love" rejoices in the Truth. Also, not every spirit is from God, even if it's disguised as being so.

1 John 4
1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

I know that you have me on ignore, but this comes from a failure to comprehend correctly.

Are you a prophet? Or, just one who likes to point the finger?

Absolutely true, so what is your TEST for those spirits? What is the nature of the Guide or Holy Spirit as taught by Jesus?

The Holy Scriptures are the lamp to one's feet.

Proverbs 4
20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
22 For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.

And when "the Holy Scriptures" are contradictory they really aren't? What was THE "Guide" Jesus promised and what are the characteristics of that Guide?

You do err. The Holy Scriptures are in complete harmony, with no contradiction.

Why do you not address the second part of the question. The first answer is an obvious rationalization to protect your error, and the second question is the crux of the matter.


It never ceases to amaze me how and why Sola Scriptura adherents will labor so mightily to set up an authority to replace the one mandated as recorded in that authority.


You labor SO hard to maintain your control and avoid the consequences of an authority that would cause you to have to give up that control.


There is only one Word, and it is not a book, and there is only one Guide mandated by that Word as recorded in your authority and you refuse to look to the nature of that Guide as taught by Jesus.

Wrong. The Holy Spirit is NOT the only guide.

(Luke 1:70,79 KJV)
(70) As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began: (79) To give light to them that sit in darkness and {in} the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.

(Joshua 1:8 KJV)
(8) This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

(2 Timothy 3:16-17 KJV)
(16) All scripture {is} given by inspiration of God, and {is} profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: (17) That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
