Like I said I'm no theological historian like you on any board whatsoever like you, not trying to trash people like you , showing how Christian and full of head knowledge I have because unlike you I am nothing. Not smart, not successful , not the super christian scholar you've made me out to be. I can't live up to your expectations as to what a Christian should be . Unlike you , you're greatness , I'm a wretch who God should have slaughtered because of my vileness but He had mercy on me . So unlike you I try to do the same . I didn't realize an honest comment would ruffle some feathers of the super spiritual Pharisees . It's people like you that cause the lost to stay away from churches. Instead of insulting people here's a new concept for you to try ... Having mercy and loving others as you would like. To be done to you. I will pray for you.

This is YOUR Doctrine.
Your presumption suggests you know the Bible better than millions today and throughout history.
Matthew 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: 29 For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes
Are you also "astonished" at the Doctrine of Jesus - or do you rebuke Jesus for not complying with your doctrine?
Apparently Paul is not as "Biblical" as you either. Romans 6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin, but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
