Bread From Heaven: If all (all have sinned Rom 3:23) means, absolutely all, no exceptions, then in order for Jesus to be fully human He would have sinned. But we all agree that Jesus’ humanity is an exception to this verse. But, if there is one exception, why not two? or three? Nothing in scripture specifically says Jesus is the only exception. In general it is certainly true that most people, nearly all people have sinned. But the passage does not state that there are absolutely NO EXCEPTIONS.)
Q. Nothing is scripture points to anyone other than Jesus being sinless.
Q. And to use the justification that the Bible doesn’t say there aren’t exceptions to the rule as your logic is ridiculous.
A. That is your opinion. And I agree, an argument from silence is not a good argument. But, you are the one who only accepts Scripture. But we accept scripture and the teaching of the Apostles as taught orally. So for us this is not an argument from silence but you will not accept our documents. So, based on what we know about the Faith as believed and taught from the beginning, we are not swayed to abandon our beliefs just because they are not explicitly stated in Scripture. They are explicitly stated or alluded to in the ancient prayers, songs, and writings of the Church Fathers.
Q. Jesus is God and God is Jesus. God is perfect and has no darkness that dwells within him which means that Jesus doesn’t as well.
A. We agree. One other small point. Despite the fact that the rest of us are born with the stain of Original Sin, babies and children, before the age of reason, and people with mental deficiencies cannot sin.
