For an explanation of this series, of which this post is a part, see Brandon E’s Objections: #1.
Brandon doesn’t mind my being sure about some things I write, but he doesn’t want me to be sure about all the things I write. For example, here’s a comment from him (and here’s the context from which it is taken):
Mike, that’s not all you proclaim as the word of God, and you should present it this way here, rather than make it try to appear that you are only following the apostles’ pattern in proclaiming the above matters. You know very well that if that’s all you “boldly proclaimed” we wouldn’t be having our present conversation.
Brandon, I only write about topics which I have confirmed from the Scriptures. I know that Jesus is Lord and that the Bible is the word of God from the same source and by the same means that I know these other things. If I can’t be sure that the other things are true, how can I be sure that Jesus is Lord and the Bible is the word of God?
