5 Uncouth Thoughts on Authority and History

5. I'm still waiting for Calvin to tell me who the "true bishops" are.

4. If the New Testament is so plain, how come no one can agree on what it says?

3. Some people (attempted to) trained me to exegete the Bible in the original languages. Oddly enough, my confidence in its perpiscuity was destroyed. (Good thing faith in Jesus Christ doesn't rest on the perpiscuity of Scripture!)

2. Nevermind; I'm not waiting for Calvin to tell me anything, because his opinion on this matter means precisely squadoosh.

1. Being neither a saint nor a Protestant, I'd like to say that, well, nearly everything I believe is on the basis of the Magisterium's teaching.
