If Jonesville and Smithtown are actually 20 miles apart and a road sign is erected that states they are 20 miles apart, would it not be confusing to erect EXTRA-ROAD SIGNS listing various mileage distances between the two towns?

If an extra-road sign stated that Jonesville and Smithtown are 6 miles apart, it could be a honest error or a lie. It could not be the truth!

If multiple erroneous extra-road signs are erected, it can block your view of the correct road sign.

God has given us the true road sign to acquire salvation and live the Christian life. The Christian road sign is the Bible and the Bible alone. Why would anyone want to construct or rely on EXTRA-ROAD SIGNS?

John 5:39 You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me;

Jesus did not mention searching any EXTRA-BIBLICAL sources.

Extra-Biblical sources that have various and sundry directions to find salvation will have a high possibility of leading down the wrong road. STAY ON THE STRAIGHT NARROW ROAD BY USING GOD'S ROAD MAP, THE BIBLE AND THE BIBLE ALONE.

Do the writings of the church fathers and historians confirm that Jesus was the Son of God? Do their records confirm the death, burial  and resurrection of Jesus Christ? Do these writings give the correct view to the terms of salvation? Are the doctrines of God confirmed by Pope Clement I, St. Polycarp, Tertullian, Irenaeus, Justin Martyr, Ignatius, or the Jewish historian Titus Flavius Josephus? Unless what these men said is found in the Scriptures it is of no value in confirming the truth about God. EXTRA-BIBLICAL sources are not inspired by God and are not considered to be Scripture.

If extra-Biblical sources are a valid way to confirm and support doctrinal positions, then, the writings of the following persons should be an acceptable source for truth: Mary Baker Eddy, Joseph Smith Jr, Billy Graham, Rev. Sung Young Moon, Jim Jones, Charles Taze Russell, Oral Roberts, Pat Robertson, John Calvin, Confucius, Martin Luther, Ron L. Hubbard, T. D. Jakes etc.

It is easy to find EXTRA-BIBLICAL writings to confirm or support pet doctrinal positions; however, they are not God breathed and have no validity whatsoever.

Would you want to use the extra-Biblical writings of the Pharisees to validate your doctrinal views?

Jesus speaking of the Pharisees said: Mark 7:7 'But in vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrines the precepts of men.'

Would the extra-Biblical writings of the Judaizers be the proper information source to be used to confirm or support a doctrinal position?

The apostle Paul speaking about the Judaizers said: Galatians 5:4 You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

Would you look to the extra-Biblical writings of Hymenaeus and Philetus  to gain support for your doctrinal positions?

The apostle Paul writing to Timothy said: Timothy 2:17-18 and their talk will spread like gangrene. Among them are Hymenaeus and Philetus, 18 men who have gone astray from the truth saying  that the resurrection has already taken place, and they upset the faith of some.

If extra-Biblical writings are not synonymous with the word of God, then, they are void of the truth.

2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God....
