  • God is only authority on scripture

    In response to my column two weeks ago regarding the authenticity of the Bible, I received an email from a reader.
    I always welcome emails from my readers, of course. This particular reader made claims that the Bible was actually property of the Catholic Church. The reader went on to elaborate that per the Catholic Church, the Bible was not the only writings of Christianity.
