Sola Scriptura, the NT Canon and the Church

Dear Kirk,

I don't know my friend was happier with the link - but he is certainly thinking things over, so our little discussion has been of some use to at least one searcher Big Grin

I have been trying to suggest to him that there may be a problem with effectively relying on only one part of Holy Tradition. There never was, after all, a heretic who could not quote Scripture; but I can't recall one who was able to ground himself in the Scriptures, the Councils, the Fathers and the the Liturgy. Over reliance on any single area will produce distortions.

In Christ,

John

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins. (1 John 4:10)
