Interesting stance. Because you believe scripture is silent on the matter it is therefore settled. (A false assertion as I will explain.) Interesting how the Dogma of the trinity was not clearly defined in scripture and had to be "fleshed" out due to the Arian heresy. Scripture is silent on lots of issues. That does not mean it has no relevance. The New Testament is completely silent on what scriptures belong in it. You don't deny the scriptures are relevant. You are making statements that lack critical thought process. Follow your thoughts to the logical end.
The fourth-century Church had the authority to determine that twenty-seven books belonged in the New Testament, I don't know of many Protestants who argue with that, the nineteenth-century Church still had the authority to dogmatically define
Mary’s Assumption into heaven, the difference to Protestants is that at some point the authority
of the church was corrupted, thus the need for the Protestant Reformation.
Scripture is not silent on the matter of Mary either. Protestants will disagree with the assumption of Mary into Heaven, not necessarily strictly over interpretation but because of the challenge to church authority, (which logically undermines the Catholic interpretation of scripture) which is actually endorsed in scripture. 1 Timothy 3: 15 but [l
]in case I am delayed, I write
so that you will know how one should act in the household of God, which is the church
of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth
. Matthew 18: 17 And if he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church
; and if he refuses to listen even to the church
, he is to be to you as [p
]a Gentile and [q
]a tax collector.
Scripture is not silent on church authority.
