sola scriptura error message

OK, I saw this and couldn't pass it up without passing it on! 


  1. An interesting spin was put on this one here: http://lehislibrary.wordpress.com/2010/11/05/eisegesis-problem/

    I find it a bit ironic that a group which believes some guy received golden plates and magic glasses to read those plates and base their religion on what he wrote from them; plus believes "as we are, God once was; as God is we shall become" (King Follett Discourse)... thinks others have an "eisegesis problem!"

  2. Just to let you know, if you follow the link you go to a completely different page. You must click on "eisegesis problem" in the right column to get to the picture.

    I do find it ironic. I love their commercials and admire their passion. However, they do have a tendency toward the ficticious.

    I also found it funny that he said he made it, but got the "idea" from you. At least he gave you some credit.

  3. I have posted a response to the Mormon who adapted the "sola scriptura problem" to be an "eisegesis problem." That post is on the Wordpress version of CathApol...


    I believe it is an honest and respectful question. I also posted it as a comment to his blog, but the last post I tried comment on there was not posted, at least not yet (perhaps he doesn't check very often?).
    In JMJ,

    PS- I have been "importing" this blog to the Wordpress version - but I may let that one take on it's own identity and link it to here.


Keep in mind while posting:
1) Please respond ON TOPIC to the article at hand.
2) Posts more than 4 weeks old are set to automatically save new comments for moderation - so your comment may not show up immediately if you're responding to an older post.
3) The "Spam Filter" is on - and randomly messages get caught in that filter. I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
