Question 81.

I feel like sometimes we look at the answers in a Bible without really trying to make sense of something eg. "It's in the Bible, it must be correct". Can't the Bible be wrong? Just so many theories. I am a religious person and believe in higher power /God but I don't believe all answers are in Bible, etc 

 

Answer to Question 81.

 

You are absolutely correct, not all the answers are in the Bible that is the Protestant belief that say if it is not in the Bible we do not believe in it. The Bible was compiled by the Church and for the Church after many years of preaching by word of mouth. So alongside with the Bible the Church also has Tradition which she considers as equal in authority. And also 2,000 years of spiritual fathers who have given us their understanding and interpretations of the Bible and the Christian way of life.
