comment What does “scripture” mean in NT writing?
What is your evidence when you state "it seems pretty clear to me from a word search that this almost exclusively refers to the Old Testament writings when used by New Testament authors?" I'm not refuting, I think it's a very compelling point I'd like to read more about.

Are we, then, to understand that 2T doesn't call the NT "God-Breathed?"

comment How do those who reject both predestination and purgatory justify their beliefs?
+1 Martin Luther's "take" was that we have free choice except for reception of grace.

@DavidStratton I added a comment to your answer, I should have edited it into the question, I'll do so now.

comment If the Ten Commandments say “thou shalt not kill” how can a Christian fight in a war?
@GregMcNulty Jesus never resorted to violence? He, himself, took up the whip in the temple courtyard and overturned the market. "Not peace, but a sword"....

@GregMcNulty The lesson about "turning the other cheek" is not Jesus telling you to be a wuss. It is about Jesus telling you not to be treated as inferior (the slap on one side, as a slave, as opposed to the fist on the other, as an equal)... Likewise the taking of the shirt (and leaving you with nothing) was tremendously dishonoring to the oppressor. Jesus is telling you to "turn the tables"...
