Once upon a time I worked in a factory to pay for my CS degree. I was promoted several times into engineering and then into engineering management. To switch back to my goal of a computer programming became expensive - upper end engineering salary vs mid level programmer. So I wrote code to automate engineering processes ("Expert System" if you will). Then one day I made an executive decision and made the career change and have been happier but poorer since.

comment Was Jesus an adherent to 'Sola Scriptura'?
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but if Jesus were to only follow the Torah then he would have been a Sadducee instead of Essene.

Maybe you could even ask this on Judiasm.SE - did Jesus obey the Torah. Obviously they would say no or state that they really do not know what Jesus did or didn't do as he's really not part of their history. Just a thought though.

@Jas3.1 can you show me were the term Sola Scriptura existed before the canonization? Maybe I'm wrong (I'm not afraid to accept being wrong), however I think you should consider rewording your question to ask if Jesus followed the laws of the Torah. Which then, Matthew 5:17 will be quoted. When Christians think of the Scriptures (Sola Scriptura) they think of the Gospels. That is not what you're asking.

then it is not Sola Scriptura - which is for the bible. And if Jesus continued following the old testament (and demanded his followers to do it as well) then we'd still be burning lambs.

How can Jesus adhere to a scripture which wasn't written yet? So then... if it WAS written would he adhere to it? Probably not for reasons suggested by DJClayworth. Did Jesus "adhere" to the old testament? No and any person practicing Judaism would tall you that Jesus did not fulfill the prophesies that they were expecting and from his own accord, demanded change.

comment Upside down cross in light of Sola scriptura
To emphasize scripture alone and not just biblical bases which could be a little more grey.

comment What did Jesus write on the ground?
I think you have the start of an awesome answer. Please provide references which support your conclusion. For help, consider reading What makes a good supported answer?. This is one of my old questions from my original account. I'm glad that it is still relevant.

comment What's the Biblical basis for calling God by the name of Jesus in prayers?
There is no explicit direction in the bible to do so, it is a common interpretation of the text. Similarly, the trinity.

comment Does the Bible say for sure that Daniel was a eunuch?
I +1 fredsbend, maybe the answerer intending mental strength from temptation? I mean, I do not understand how they couldn't break by their temptation.

comment Is it possible to just visit heaven?
That would be your interpretation of that verse. Others as pointed out, do not share your interpretation. Please note that we do not downvote questions based on if we agree with the view or not but rather if the answer is helpful or not. If you're not a Rosicrucian, Unity Church member and / or Christian Scientist, this answer should be left to no contest to you.

comment Proverbs 14:4 - What does this mean?
"A clean desk is a sign of someone who doesn't do anything" or as Albert Einstein once said, "If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?"

comment What Biblical support is there for a non-Churched Christianity?
Your answer reads more like a testimony than an answer, but you came through with supporting information at the end. You may want to add some references to the "... changing the name of "Gehenna" to "hell" and propagating the pagan doctrines ..."
