Unloading 35 Loaded Questions for "Bible Christians" 18/35

Steve Ray has a list of 35 loaded Questions for "Bible Christians" (quotation marks his)(link to the whole list). This is number 18/35. I'm trying to provide the answers in a common format, for easy reference.

18) Since each Protestant must admit that his or her interpretation is fallible, how can any Protestant in good conscience call anything heresy or bind another Christian to a particular belief?

Simple Answer(s):

By appealing to the authority of Scripture.

Important Qualification(s):

1) Everyone (not just "Protestants") has to admit that his interpretation is fallible. You don't become infallible by joining Rome.

2) When we say that something is heresy, we are not saying that we are infallible. Roman Catholics aren't claiming that when they call something heresy, neither are we.

3) The Roman Catholics judge heresy by the standard of their church's teachings - we use Scripture. Our standard is better than theirs, but the basic principle involved is the same.

I believe, with confidence, this is why the RCC is the institution that will usher in the Anti-Christ.

The Anti-Christ is opposed to the Scripture and being opposed to the Scripture, you are opposed to the Creator of the Scripture, Who is Holy, Who is True; Who "cannot" lie.

We have two immutable realities that firmly establish us in a relationship with God. They are, God has made promises we can count on for Eternity; and by Faith, which He gives to those Whom He Himself saves, we come to realize He cannot lie therefore when He says something we believe Him and hope in Him alone, hence the 5 solas:::>

Rom 3:10 as it is written: "None is righteous, no, not one;
Rom 3:11 no one understands; no one seeks for God.
Rom 3:12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one."

This struggle is not for the reprobate. This struggle is for the Elect who sit in darkness or have been blinded by a false light or rather, an anti-truth lie:::>

Pro 11:29 Whoever troubles his own household will inherit the wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise of heart.
Pro 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and whoever captures souls is wise.
Pro 11:31 If the righteous is repaid on earth, how much more the wicked and the sinner!
