Recently, On Behalf of All wrote a piece about my rejection of James. I replied but like many blogs these days, they deleted my post. Yet another coward in Christian apologetics.  It looks like this blog is Eastern Orthodox which goes to show how the EO Apologists foam at the mouth to find some speck in my eye as a mote lies in theirs. Since they deleted my comments, I will include them here:


You didn’t even read the link man.

Luther says,

“I do not regard it as the writing of an apostle”

And again,

“I therefore refuse him a place among the writers of the true canon of my bible”

Preface to the Epistles of St. James and St. Jude. I didn’t make this up Gabe.

“Therefore I cannot include him among the chief books, though I would not thereby prevent anyone from including or extolling him as he pleases, for there are otherwise many good sayings in him.”

>>>He said substantially the same thing  in the link I cited which quotes him rejecting James as canonical.

“This is a far cry from what Drake is recommending.”

>>>This is hilarious.

“And because the Holy Spirit — living and breathing in the ongoing life of the Church — is not constrained by the limits of either human reason”

>>>But I am, which makes a revelation what you mean to hold to impossible.

“anyone who can accept the mystery of the Trinity should not have much trouble accepting a simple paradox as the apparent contradiction between James and Paul.”

>>>There is no paradox in the Trinity; only in your Sabellian mutation of it after your church failed to interpret the word homoousios correctly as I have shown on my blog for a long time:

“As an Orthodox Christian, the exact canon of the scriptures is not as important as our understanding of them”

>>>Excuse me? You just said we couldn’t understand them and that the HS was not bound by human reason.
