Such was not the teaching of the Reformers. Hamilton House was purchased and was opened as a Youth Recreational Center. If these were the beliefs of the one, authoritative, original Church, I needed to find out if this Church was still around. Without T-U-L-I-P they do not know the gospel according to the Bible as proclaimed by the Apostle Paul. He who looketh on the sun and it shineth not has issued His command to suspend the conflict. One of the central points of divergence was controversy over the Eucharist.

He saw, as he thought, the whole of Christianity about to be spiritualised, and to lose itself a second time in the mazes of mysticism. She understands the clergy as servants of Christ and His people and not as a special privileged class. I'm sorry that he didn't use the subjunctive in the title and in the codas he presents throughout the book, summarizing a section of reflections by thinking about the logical consequences of Protestant theology.

And that is the reason why the early church believed what was handed over by Christ was a teaching authority (authority of the Apostoles) and not the bible.
