I ask the question here because I did not find another similar question (it may exist though). The question is generic to Christianity in general.
We all know the Holy Bible and the teachings it contains. Some of them explicit, some of them implicit. We also know that each "Church" has its own teachings, dogmas, laws...
Now, if I reason that the teaching of the Church does not fit the teaching of the Bible, what should I do? Which is the more "powerful" authority? Which one should I trust more?
Note: I am not implying "sola scriptura" and I am not rejecting traditions or other any teachings in general. It is about conflicts:
- teachings vs. Bible;
- teachings vs. my own thinking / knowledge;
I am also not trying to find any "real truth" / proof - as in a scientific way.
