Someone replied to my first post that I failed to cite evidence. Not being familiar with forums, posts, replies, etc. It appears I have assumed too much from my readers. My closing remark: "An examination of the lives of these men readily supports my views pertaining to their shortcomings in regard to their credibility as it relates to the Word of God." Here I am instructing my readers to take it upon themselves to examine the lives(biographical) of these men to decide for themselves whether my thesis is credible. What I did in my first post was only an exposition--an eye opener so-to-speak. I'm assuming that once you evaluate the backgrounds of these men and how it evolved into their theology, you may find my thesis has some merit.
