"Collate" and "comport." Whenever I see those two words, I think of you.
So--you comport me with those terms? Why would you collate that together?
Care to engage why you ask questions but won't directly answer anything without spam-quoting "works" passages?
I use the Biblical scriptures--what do you consider "spam" about the posted scriptures?
Tertiumquid--I use a lot of different scriptures. If I used just a handful--you might have a good point. I bet I could come up with 50 different scriptures I have used here on this board alone. Maybe more. I could come up with more. A lot more. That isn't just posting the same few scriptures--nor is it a narrow view.
So--why don't you use the scriptures? You bombard me with a number of complaints--which have nothing to do with how the Lutherans align(happy?) their theology with the Biblical witness. For me--that amounts to little less than a peanut galley, than one interested in defending Lutheran theology with the Biblical text.
Just so they violate Lutheran theology--and get under the skin of some--is not evidence those scriptures are "spam".
I agree--there are a lot of scriptures which defy Lutheran theology--but I'm not responsible for that.
As to the "works" verses--they are numerous--so one could fit a lot of passages into that arena--which defy faith alone theology.
Why can't Lutherans defend their theology against those scriptures?
