I've got a couple of questions for you, actually. This topic is my attempt to understand the various viewpoints found here in this section of the forum. If you regularly (or not so regularly) participate here, would you be so kind as to give your viewpoint in regards to these questions? Thanks.... 1. Is the Bible our absolute authority in all matters of faith and practice? 2. If you answered yes to question 1, would you explain briefly what your view in this version debate is, and then give a brief explanation of how the absolute authority of the Bible works into your viewpoint on this matter of faith and practice? 3. If you answered no to question 1, would you explain what absolute authority you do accept (if any) and how that authority works into your viewpoint on this matter of faith and practice? I'd like to keep the first page of the discussion a debate free zone, if that's possible, just to give a bit of time for simple answers to be given.
