What teachings? Give an example pls?

Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Matthew 28:19

Baptising is a manipulated corrution of a Hebrew law. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the gospels.

Positations
I thinks that's a typo. Positation doesn't show up in a dictionary search. If you two wish to continue that discussion do it over the PM and not in this thread.

Thanks

You really don't know anything about Christian History do you?

Do you know who King James was, what the situation was in England at the time, that it was a major transition of power from the House of Tudor to the House of Stuart?

You call the only Church that Jesus actually commissioned the Whore of Babylon?

Do you have any idea what the COE is?


Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

On Debating Who's a Whore (and quibbling about the price ..)

Is this the Universal Church of Rome being referenced as ‘the only Church that Jesus actually commissioned’?

Surely, you've been misunderstood or simply jest. What possible evidence is there for us to consider those hosting the moral imperative to go out and preach - with their trusty hammer's and box' of nails, among all peoples' and nations' a rabidly spreading Gospel of Venomous Crucifixions' to all dissenters, were the only church Jesus historically commissioned?

Do you have any idea what the COE is?

Would that be the state religion espoused by England and the plantation church responsible for the daughter churches of the greater Angelican Communion? The Church of England appears to be another of Augustine’s late six century love children, who apparently felt 900 years or so was plenty long enough to placate her mother’s nonsense.

And the Catholic Church is exactly what it has always publicly called itself: the Roman Catholic (Universal) Church.

It’s not the ‘Christian Church’ or ‘Church of Christ’ and never has it been anything other than the ‘Roman Universal Church’, much like the 'Church of England’ is not, nor has it ever been, the ‘Christian Church’ or ‘Church of Christ’ ..

They have always stood and - as you note, continue to stand, identified by their own words!

As does the AAC, which at least carries the theme of apostolic succession in it’s title

Whether they fail to meet the definition of syncretistic religions which happen to historically maintain their roots in Babylonian ritual and mythology (which appears debatable) seems fairly irrelevant to the OP all things considered.

Perhaps the overarching point remains; there doesn't appear to be a a canon in existence which the entirety of Christendom uniformly agrees upon through an authoritative lens and most all of them have been formed throughout history with the guiding hand of substantial political considerations.

I'm not here to mock or condemn what you believe, tho my intentions are no less than to tickle your thinker.
If those in first century CE had known what these words mean ... 'I want and desire mercy, not sacrifice'
They surely would not have murdered the innocent; why trust what I say, when you can learn for yourself?
Think for yourself.

Im not talking about the doctrine of those verses. I was pointing out that the apostles and followers were told to spread the gospel to every corner of the earth. So the word of God wouldnt just be the Hebrew or Greek manuscripts, but for people of all nations, cultures and languages.

It depends what is called 'spreading'. If by the rake and the sword, it should not apply the term spreading but forceful conversion. But if this as a light unto others - namely by example only, then it is bona fide.

Re. Which Version of the Bible is the Word of God?

If we allow all scriptures the benefit of the doubt, then there is only one which positively is the word of God - that which emerged at Sinai, in the midst of millions, and which has impacted humanity as no other. This makes any who contradict it as NOT the word of God. Also, humanity is in a mess - all scriptures cntradict each other - all positively cannot be the word of God.
