1 Thessalonians 5:21 (KJV) - "Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." Here is my position: In another thread it was stated that my position was unscriptural and that my position could not be proven to be true by using the scriptures alone. Ok, I wish to ask a question: If my position was an unscriptural position, is it not reasonable to ask you to prove to me why it is unscriptural (using only scriptural proofs to prove me wrong)? In other words, I am asking those that disagree with my position to use the scriptures alone to prove to me that I am wrong! Some of you may be scratching your heads. Let me give you an example of what I mean. I believe that it is unscriptural to use tobacco products (in any form). Let's say that I am trying to convince someone that he/she is leading an unscriptural life style by smoking tobacco. Now the Bible does not state in so many words 'thou shalt not use 'tobacco.' But there are scriptural principles that lead us to believe that God is not pleased with a Christian who smokes. So then I take the scriptures and show him/her the scriptural proofs that he/she is unscriptural because he/she smokes. Got it? Good. Now prove to me I am unscriptural in my beliefs using the scriptures alone. Earlier someone posted this statement in an effort to keep from answering the question: Nobody here is asserting that God even has a favorite baseball team! I am only trying to show you that to ask us King James Bible believers to prove our position by using the scriptures alone is an unreasonable request. The proof of our position is in the manuscript evidence and we believe that manuscript evidence bears witness that the King James Bible is God's preserved word for the English speaking people!
