What is the benchmark for determining the truth of God's new covenant doctrine? The benchmark is, was it proclaimed by Jesus or the apostles.

Truth: Jesus said I am the Christ, the Son of Man. (Mark 14:53-64)

Falsehood: The high priest called the assertions of Jesus, blasphemy. (Mark 14:53-64)

Truth: If Christians try to be justified by law, they will fall from grace.(Galatians 5:1-5)

Falsehood: Unless you are circumcised according to the law of Moses you cannot be saved.(Acts 15:1-5)

Truth: Mark 16:16"He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (NKJV)[Spoken by Jesus]

Falsehood: He who believes is saved by faith alone and does not have to be immersed in water(baptized) in order to be saved. Spoken by preachers, pastors, and theologians.

Truth:  Romans 3:23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,(NKJV)

Falsehood; Men fall short of God glory because Adam sinned.

Truth: Acts 2:38 Then Peter said them, "Repent, and each of you one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your of sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.(NASB)

Falsehood: Be baptized for the forgiveness of Adam's sin.

Falsehood: Be baptized because your sins have been forgiven.

Falsehood: Be baptized as a testimony of your faith.

Falsehood: Be baptized so you can join the denomination of your choice.

Falsehood: Be baptized as an infant for inherited  and committed sin and then believe as an adult.

Falsehood: Be baptized for the guilt of "original sin," because you have inherited the sin of Adam and Eve.

Falsehood: Be baptized as an unbelieving infant and you will be added to the body of Christ.

Should your benchmark for God's truth be Jesus and the apostles or should it be preachers, priests, pastors, theologians, creed books, Bible commentaries, and other books written about the Bible?

The Bible and the Bible alone contains the absolute truth.
