Article #43 – Sola Scriptura is indeed Biblical [/quote:3urraawr]
Sola Scriptura is a man-made myth of Luther….as he lacked a teaching authority.
Ron, the first thing that you need to do is obtain a copy of the Bible. The Bible is a Catholic book…..we wrote it, and we defined it. It was defined by the Decree of Pope St. Damasus I in 382 A.D., and it includes the deutercanonicals.
Read the following….it summarizes the fallacy of the fabrication of Sola Scriptura:
[b:3urraawr]Scripture Alone? Is Half the Story Sufficient?[/b:3urraawr][url:3urraawr]http://www.call2holiness.org/ScriptureAlone/ScriptureAlone.htm[/url:3urraawr]
(Please read the footnotes in the writing above as well. I am referring to the one about 2 Tim. 3:16-17 in particular.)
Protestants would have us believe that Holy Scripture represents 100% of the Faith. We are supposed to believe that Catholic Tradition is false because they claim that it is not Scriptural, but when it comes to Sola Scriptura it is acceptable that Sola Scriptura can not be found anywhere within Holy Scripture? That is, Sola Scriptura is non-Scriptural…..but that is acceptable, because it makes them feel good. If it feels good, it must be true; if it feels bad, it must be false.
And then there is Sola Fides (‘Faith Alone’)………another patently false notion created by Luther. He even admitted boldly to adding the word “alone” to Romans 3:28.
Rom 3:28 For we hold that a man is justified by faith apart from works of law.
Further, he removed 7 books from the Bible, because they got in his way. He claimed that he was justified in removing them because a Jewish council (the Council of Jamnia) convened in 90-95 A.D. (about 60 or so years AFTER the death of Christ) removed them. The Jews removed them because they feared the rising strength of Christianity, and wanted to defeat the Church which made use of them. Protestants perpetuate this fraud to this day in their KJV. This begs the question: Are Protestants Christian, or Jewish?
Now, Luther did both of these things in spite of the Scriptural admonitions against adding to or taking away from the Word of God…..and the Protestants continue such practice to this day:
“Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him. Do not add to his words, lest he rebuke you, and you be found a liar.” (Prov 30:5-6)
(See also, Deu 4:2, Gal. 1:8, 2 Pet 3:15-16, Rev. 22: 18-19)
What happened to the rule of Sola Scriptura? Seven books are removed from the Bible, and words are added in spite of the Scriptural admonitions against doing so?!
As one can see, Protestants have no problem ignoring their fabricated Sola Scriptura when it comes to ignoring Biblical verses or complete books that make them feel uneasy. And they do not have any problem in adding words that are not there, if it makes them feel good.
It’s all about feelings.
It is the will of God that we seek the truth…..not comfort our feelings.
“This is good and pleasing to God our savior, who wills everyone to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:3-4)
Sin is defined as interference with the Will of God.
