For Christians ONLY.. Do you believe it is ok to have beliefs you cannot defend with scripture ?


Many that profess Christianity have beliefs that they have taken as their own, yet they cannot provide scriptural proof of how they apply to Christianity. Do you believe a Christian should have beliefs that they cannot defend with scripture taken in proper context ? Why?

    gracie--

    yes, I agree scripture based NOT bible based, bibles are translations of scripture and have many errors that we must avoid. and that warning is good but actually only applies to the book of revelation.

    Directly from Jesus. Duh. And what exactly are you saying sorry to? You think you DON'T need biblical support for your Christian beliefs? I'm confused.

    cm= that is why the" churches" are in such a mess, they have accepted your liberal, un-scriptural , humanistic belief system instead of God's plan of course you have the right to believe what you want. just cant espouse it here without correction

    m-- sorry but your answer is clearly not scriptural. we ARE called to check fruit. the fact that the "ministers" you mention cannot agree shows they ARE NOT of God as He demands there be NO divisions His church.

    amen brother unfortunately they listen to the hirelings instead of going to the Holy Spirit for truth, that is if they even open their bibles

    Well put! I was raised in a Christian home but only came to understand God's word in original context as an adult. There were many confusing nights spent in the realization that the scriptures and the Holy Spirit were telling me something different.

    l- all denominations are not of God, Paul clearly states there are to be no division among those of the Kingdom of God. the kingdoms of men have so may divisions who can count the thousands of them

    believing in Jesus does not make one a Christian-the devil believes, The 10 commandments were given to Israel. Jesus is the author of our faith & He gave us 2 commandment which include but bring a higher standard

    no all can not be supported i

    what a horrible mistake to take catholic doctrine as scriptural when scripture declare the doctrines of man are not of God. circumcission was to Israel for a season & finished at the cross. replaced by the circum of the heart not made with h

    When looking into this concept of not being supported by scripture I always start with the notion of the Trinity. Even trying I cannot defend it by scripture.

    mm= that is a GOOD reason to leave the apostate church sysyem. but not a valid reason to leave Christianity. Are you sure you were ever a Christian? a majority of embers of the church system of men are not. church att does not make a believer

    "But I have trouble with it in the extraordinary versus the ordinary and just plain old daily beliefs that help us through a day."

    WOW! Go back & "WAIT" for HELP from the Holy Spirit!

    b- you are wrong, many people believe alike as demanded by scripture. we are commanded that there be NO divisions in the true church. the worldly church systembelieves as you stated but those of the ekklesia ARE OF ONE ACCORD.

    it IS WRONG. if they are foolish enough to be led by men then they need to be quiet. Christ is the head of man and NO man is over any other man. either be led by the Holy Spirit of sit down and be quiet til they learn how.to be HS led
