Even Christ, He never argued with the authorities knowledge and correct interpretation of scripture, He condemned them for their disobedience of it.
But this is the endless circular reasoning you will always encounter with millions of these ‘blind leading the bind’.
And so when you address the “gay problem” by using the very scriptures, which he claims to ‘obey’ and you tell him: these according to the Book of Romans are “worthy of death”.
Civil authority historically used to punish the homosexual and all this ‘love’ without punishment simply crept in the last few decades.
It is just as the Old Testament in ancient Israel funneled all theology to the realm of the Levites.
“Obey your prelates, and be subject to them” God says in the book of Hebrews ().
But you would never see sola-scripturists with a Bible in hand carrying such placards.
So even if you bring up the Bible, or even the Church fathers, these would still object arguing that the ‘fathers’ ordained the “killing of millions of sola-scripturist saints”.
Reality is, he wants to isolate you to strictly obey his of scripture.
Why such wolf are evil is simple to explain: the wolf by telling you to obey his interpretations, instead of the fathers interpretations, he masquerades as if he is God.
But you would never find these explain to their congregants who truly are these Paulicians, Albigenses, Bogomils, Manicheans and Cathars. Their belief stemmed from the East, from a Zoroastrian named Mani (3rd century).
After a pilgrimage to India, Mani came back to preach in Iran.
Why then not also love the murderer instead of applying civil punishment?
