More Unanswered Questions


Why must we suddenly abandon what we knew and believed simply because a man 600 years later claims prophethood without engaging in meaningful exegesis?

Why must we suddenly abandon what we knew and believed simply because a man 1,500 years later claims to be a "Reformer"? Is it probably because he was "engaging in [a more] meaningful exegesis" than the 'meaningless exegesis' of the fifteen centuries of Fathers, Saints, and Martyrs that have gone before him?...



So Islam is begun by a message from a supposed angel that presents a new gospel that does not come from the Church, and one that preaches against what is taught in the New Testament. [...] As Paul warns, even demons can appear as "angels of light" to deceive mankind.

...but if instead of "angels of light " we have 'men of flesh and blood', then I guess it's AOK, right?...

My first time posting here. Perhaps someone can help me. I'm looking for the quote from St. Irenaeus against the gnostics in which he said something to the effect that they rearrange Holy Scripture into a mosaic that resembles a dog or fox. Can someone tell me where this quote is from in "Against Heresies" and quote it exactly as St. Irenaeus wrote it?

Thanks.

:) You have to have the video to go along with it... Cracks me up every time I watch it.

If you want to read it in context (it's in the first paragraph), you can do so here:

Is the video still working for you, David? It's not working for me anymore: seems that they've restricted its viewing in my country due to copy-right issues.

Yes, it worked last time I checked (when I posted the link)...
