Who's authority?

Now I see. Well I guess I will take my inferior intellect and leave this part of the board alone. I much prefer discussion with those blokes at the pub any day. Now if only I can convince some of my more logical friends who are trained in Protestant Apologetics to post here there would be a more balanced *debate*. However when I last checked, they were too busy walking the talk as well.

I think I know what you mean since it has been my experience. There is a big difference beteen having your eyes and ears opened to a more human perspective then following in blind faith what others tell you to believe. I agree though that walking the talk measures our understanding which is the bottom line.
