    But you have taken the position that those who do not agree with you do not understand the bible...not much of a difference there...

    In your opinion the bible is the exclusive authority, not all share your opinion, but it does not mean they do not understand the bible.

    Luke 19:22 And he saith unto him, Out of thine own mouth will I judge thee, thou wicked servant. Thou knewest that I was an austere man, taking up that I laid not down, and reaping that I did not sow:

    Matthew 7: 1 Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

    Luke 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

    I do remember in history classes that the Bible was originally translated into English so that everyone could understand it. Not just the Priest, Bishops, and other men of higher education that knew Latin. But the common man who had very little money for education, and worked more than anything.
