I'm not one for hypotheticals but I was wondering....if you had no prior knowledge about God, and were put on an island with a bible (without any outside influences)where you could study without interruptions or influences, would you come to the same conclusions that you currently hold? I submit that in many cases, you might or maybe even could not come to the same conclusions. You would have no "sacred cows" to protect and defend, you would simply accept God's word for what it says. No Greek, no study aids, only God's word. After your lengthy stay on the island, where you did nothing but study God's word, you are then brought back to society and given the task of finding a "church" that best fit the New Testament pattern. Do you honestly think you would pick your current church?
