A fire and brimstone chat-room, sign me up. I can smell the acrid odor of sulphur dioxide given off by the lightning strikes within the language! Here's to you, and here's to me - if we shall ever disagree to hell with you; here's to me.

Maybe an infraction might do you good too.I wish you would get it off your chest and tell me what you really thought of me, i'm sure it's worth an infraction. I had a couple years ago when i first started posting, at least one got revoked, and 1 last year i think. So all in all in all i'm a good lad.Maybe a B+

The Bible makes no such claim for itself. You and the "precepts and doctrines of men" do. God is inerrant and infallible nothing else. When you make a book inerrant and infallible, you make it a God. That is why you err. Jesus is the Word of God, NOT the Bible. Jesus abides with us as the Comforter sent in His name to guide us to the Truth God has already "written in our hearts" so we do not need anyone to teach us. You reject the New Covenant and the Comforter in favor of the Old Covenant "written in ink" and stone. Sad, very sad.

Obviously you do NOT believe the words of Jesus Himself.

That very fact is strong evidence of your idolatry of the Bible. Your claim that it is inerrant and infallible (which the Bible NEVER claims for itself), while ignoring Jesus' very words recorded in the Bible, puts you firmly in danger of that hell fire Jesus spoke of. Claim it is the word of God and then ignore what Jesus says simply means you don't truly respect God's word at all. You have zero respect for Jesus. You respect your "rightness" that is missing any and all righteousness.

I will remind you of your rejection of Jesus every time you attempt to bring up inerrant and infallible while intentionally--INTENTIONALLY--ignoring the words of Jesus.

And you can call me anything you wish as you dig your way to the hell that "perfect" book promises you.

If you don't need anyone to teach you, why are you constantly quoting the Bible? Why don't you quote something you heard from your own sources?

PS I have never, ever, met anyone who thinks Bible is God. Making such claims about other people makes you a false witness.

Calling it what only God is, is calling it God. The scriptures testify of the One who is Life, they are not life in themselves. Whom to know is Life. Jesus also said My words are Spirit and Life, he did not say the scriptures are

then why do evangelicals ONLY quote the bible and not god? also, why are the ONLY written words used to quote god over 3000 years old? Why has god not spoken to evangelicals since the Crucifixion?

Jesus own words are records in the Bible, so they are words from God.

Do you have words of God from the sources?

If He didn't, not one would come to Him, but He is speaking, and people are coming to Him. However, the message is the same as written in the Bible.

So what you are saying is Jesus is limited by his own words in the bible. He rebuked the jews for saying they were words of life.
