In my early days when I converted back to Christianity, I thought that Baptists and similar Evangelical sects were spot-on because they adhered to biblical teachings. After two years I came to know better. Nowhere is the Bible described as the "Word of God", and calling the Holy Scriptures as such is blasphemy. By calling the Bible as "Word of God" you equate God's perfect natural order and Son, Jesus Christ, with the Bible, which is lunacy. Even the Bible is not perfect, not even in its original manuscripts that you can find, because man is not perfect, not even the holy men who wrote the Scriptures.Hey, Mr Original Baptist Church, what do you think about 20th Canon of the First Ecumenical Council. You guys are the only legit Christians, who adhere to doctrine and practices of the NT church, so your church follows this right? (this council preceded the compilation of the scriptures known as the bible, so I don't want to hear any "it was an innovation")
I had several arguments with one Baptist, who equated the Bible with Jesus, yet denied it when I proved his fallacy. He said that the verse in Revelation that mentions nothing should be added to this book means the whole Bible, though the Bible (as we know it) was not canonized as of yet in that time. When I said to him that this verse refers only to the book of Revelation, he became offended.
Protestants and Evangelicals, who are mad at the Catholic and Orthodox Church are basically mad at their mother (church).
Christians who say that the NT is above the OT are usually implying that the God of the OT is evil, and the God of the NT is good. This is pure Gnosticism and they don't even know it. Or they are implying God's given order changed somehow. How can God be perfect if He changes what was perfect?In no place does the NT ever override the OT (outside of basic dietary things, and inclusion of the gentiles) Christ didn't say much politically because the basic structure of beliefs was already laid out by the prophets, he walked in the same path as the prophets and was the culmination of them.
