I'm a born-again Christian, active member of the body of Christ, husband and father, and Bible teacher. I love to study Scripture, and firmly believe it is the only credible standard for truth.

Aside from my devotion to God, His people, and His word, I don't really have any loyalty to a particular doctrine or creed.

comment Was Jesus an adherent to 'Sola Scriptura'?
@TheFreemason I have never heard anyone say that the Old Testament was not Scripture until the NT was complete. Where are you getting these ideas from? To my knowledge the orthodox position (at least in the Protestant tradition) has always been that the writings were Scripture from the moment they was written. Are you coming from a church background that believes it's only "Scripture" because the church said so?

comment Was Jesus an adherent to 'Sola Scriptura'?
@TheFreemason Have you ever read the Gospels? Jesus' entire life, ministry, and teachings were rooted in the Old Covenant Scriptures. I'm obviously not asking if Jesus adhered to later NT writings that weren't even written yet.

comment How do people become the sheep that Jesus speaks of in John 10?
@omannay It would take some time to explain. I would suggest posting a separate question about that over on hermeneutics.SE. ("What does John/Jesus mean by 'eternal life'?")

comment Premillennialist view of 1 Thessalonians 4:16
You might want to edit this to specify "Dispensationalists" rather than "Premillennialists". The former believe there will be a rapture several years prior to Christ's 2nd Coming. Historic Premillennialists, on the other hand, view this verse in pretty much the same way an Amillenialist would.

comment What language did Jesus speak?
@curiousdannii As I noted in my question, I'm referring to a very common debate over the original language of the bulk of Jesus' sayings in Scripture. This is a common question. I'm not asking whether He knew more than one language, or whether a few odd sayings were in a different language than the one He typically spoke during His sayings that are recorded in Scripture. The question pertains to the original language behind the sayings in Scripture, which is an important topic in exegesis.

comment Does it state ANYWHERE in the Bible that pets can or can not go to heaven?
There will be sheep (Rev 5:6) but not dogs (Rev 22:15).
