Why then not also love the murderer instead of applying civil punishment?Therefore, by using such an argument we must then all become liberal activists carrying banners that say “united against the death penalty”.To the heretic, only the blood of Catholics and Orthodox is rendered worthless, while the theology of the Manichean Albigenses including their blood is considered sacred-worthy.
The Catholic Church, they say, is “drunk with the blood of the saints and the martyrs of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 17:6).
Such language is another clue that what you are dealing with here is a wolf in sheep clothing and not a saint.
These do not hate authority, they in fact love authority: them.
They are rabid blasphemers who claim they have a direct open-line to Jesus as if Jesus did not establish His church.
Say that and these very ‘scripture-aloneists’ will be the first to turn on you.
They say that “according to the New Testament we must love the homosexual” and not punish him.But who is then this ‘authority’ that scripture speaks of?The bible-aloneist will always argue–100% of the time–of himself as the authority, his pastor, or a book he purchased, or a Youtube video, or a weblink to be such authority.These short lines I wrote above should end all arguments. But no matter how corrupt the authority is, we have ample and credible Church fathers whom Christians throughout the ages agree were competent and godly saints who correctly interpreted scripture.But ask the renegade to obey these and you will instantly get the same circular reasoning: you must obey scripture .A rabid blaspheming wolf will rarely speak about the blood of millions of Catholics and Eastern orthodox who fought Islam.
