Search for in them you think you have eternal , but they are they which testify of me (The Truth,The reality of God) . In other words the scriptures testify that Jesus is the Truth, the exact representation of His being.

You see Fundy this is where you are going all wrong .

Eternal life is not in the written word it's 3Now this is eternal life: that they may know you,(not what's written on a piece of paper or a computer screen) the only true God, and Jesus Christ(The Truth, The reality of God, the exact representation of His being), whom you have sent. John 17
You just created a doctrine.......therefore truth!!!!!!!!!!

Jesus clearly states He is the truth and you say truth is a doctrine. Truth is the reality of God Fundy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, not a doctrine.

How come you cannot understand this.

I am creating a doctrine because i state and agree with Jesus that He is the truth, so because i state i have a son called Joel is that a doctrine ? , you are hilarious lmao

No I just said, you just created a doctrine. To say Jesus is the ONLY way to someone who thinks there are many ways. YOU HAVE JUST DECLARED TRUTH TO THAT PERSON AND CREATED A DOCTRINE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I never said that at all I said He is the way .

Fundy this is where you are completely missing it again , just like Thomas who thought he needed a map(a doctrine) to get there . Jesus said I AM.

Jesus was declaring who He was , not bringing in some new doctrine.

You are confusing the existence of truth with spiritual immaturity. That doesn't negate that truth is still truth. It's true there are Christians who are just growing and learning as we ALL are but truth is still truth.
Gods truth is absolute...you are correct. But most of us don't have Gods truth what we do have is our carnal interpretation of Gods truth...do you see what I mean?

I really don't know how to explain this to you Fundy...we read Gods words but we are still very carnal in our thinking and so we interpret the scriptures from that mindset...its doesn't make it wrong or invalid it's just not the whole story. There are spiritual layers to the scriptures that can only be revealed by God and until you experience it...it's just a very difficult thing to explain.
