Some versions of Christianity take Scripture as the ultimate authority, some Church pronouncements, and some human reason. I'm a human-reason type of Christian.
But history shows human reason on its own to be fickle and unreliable.
You only need to read posts on this forum to realise that human reason alone will give as many differing versions of the truth as there are posters.

My faith is primarily based on prayerful reading of the New Testament and psalms, together with what I believe to be the divinely guided authority of the Roman Catholic church.

he was probably guilty,

Oh of course he was!

Because obviously you sat in the courtroom and heard all of the evidence and made your decision based on that evidence.

Oops. Except you didn't did you?

Now I'm not saying the judicial system gets it right all the time, but on a percentage basis it works a damn sight better than "imo"

Once again you are resorting to your favoured movement, the knee jerk.

Except possibly HM Revenue and Customs!:D

I remember the court case, he was probably guilty, but he had the jury in stitches and they didn't have the heart to convict him.

We haven't got a frost today, unlike yesterday, but the wind chill makes it feel well below zero.

Little rose your opinion-------your opinion-what does the bible say.

What the Bible has to say is neither here or there.

Mr chuckleberry sorry you are wrong----- We are speaking of what the scriptures say and not your opinion.Have you not noticed it is a Christian Topic which originates in scripture.

Doesn't work like that.  The Christian Topic is there for discussion of christian topics; you cannot set your own parameters on top of that restricting the debate to what scriptures say about the concept.  People from varying backgrounds can have a view on such concepts.

Philosophy, in all its guises. / Re: Subjectivity

I think that is broadly right, in so far as perception is a personal, subjective, interpretation of inbound information. There is no way to know if my perception of blue is the same experience as your perception of blue.   Nicely exemplified by the dress that broke the internet in 2015.

Perception is information processing and as every brain is unique, we all process the same data slightly differently.

Far to many--I thinks and My opinions go to scripture.We dont want your thinks or your opinions we want you to quote scripture.
Speak for yourself! Why are the opinions of the Scripture-writers more valuable than anyone else's? Please don't say "because it's the word of God": that is merely your arbitrary opinion, and is rather contradicted by the appalling cruelty apparently commanded by God that is described in the Old Testament, and the many inconsistencies within it.
