Hi John,

I would take what you have written and apply it directly to you. What I am saying is what the Church has indeed been saying from the very beginning. I don’t know why you think I am making up something new. I would never presume to be so arrogant.

From the very beginning, the Church has taught what I said in my article. I get my information from the Bible and from what the early Christians and many biblical scholars are saying. This is nothing new. I would be interested to see why you think your interpretation of Scripture is correct.

Scripture has to be taken in context so we can understand what the original writers and hearers of it meant and heard. When that is not done you can make Scripture mean anything you want. That is when you have vain imaginations of the mind, as you say, and is exactly what I am not doing.
