comment Why are some denominations so against the idea of personal revelation as a source of Truth?
Thanks. The way I see it, I can contribute more to a site like christianforums.com, where there can be more back and forth regarding various Biblical texts. Also, I changed "solar" to "sola" and added "or deceived," since TRiG raised the point that someone claiming revelation from God may not be intentionally deceitful :)

comment Is confessing to a priest the only way to be forgiven?
If you notice, in italics, I say "in order to obtain favor with God." My reasoning comes from Galatians 5:1-4, where Paul talks about how seeking justification by means of the law severs us from Christ. I assert that God detests it when we do anything in a way other than His way. Hope that helps clarify!

Thanks, Caleb. I think I just started to figure that out about this site, which means it's not for me. I'm only concerned with absolute Truth. Thanks again for the notification!

Glad to hear it! This was indeed my first post (just posted my second a 'second' ago).
