Default Re: Sola Scriptura: Looking for help in a debate

It appears to me in at least one of their threads that some of the members are not looking for debate with Catholic teaching. One of the mods mentioned a troll of sorts and I am beginning to get the impression that their site is intended to discuss what some Christians agree on, rather than what we don't.

Perhaps we can invite them to visit CatholicAnswers Forum when they have a particularly Catholic topic they want to discuss. While I realize the importance of speaking the Truth, I also recognize the importance of a place to get away from the "battlegrounds" so to speak.

Currently, the participants in the discussion involve several Protestants and but one Catholic. The Catholic is a friend of mine who is being a bit overwhelmed in the debate at this point. I've been following the discussion with interest, but am myself lacking in the necessary background to effectively argue against Sola Scriptura.(Edited to remove link to non-Catholic forum per CAF Board Swarm policy.)
This is what you might research we belive in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Doctrine, Sacred Doctrine is essential to the full intended meaning of the Scriptures and especially to the determinant moral codes that the church teaches as the ideal of Christian goodness, Christian living that is. Read through the New Testament with a mind to notice any Sacred Doctrines being made which more fully reveal previous scripture, those are Sacred Doctrines which I'm sure the Sola Scripturists will agree are Sacred but only because they immediately become Scriptural. That's fine, that is still a support for the chosen church to make (valid) doctrine before the birth (retrospective doctrines of the faith) during the life, and after the death, resurrection, and ascension of the Lord Jesus, and until His day of returning in glory.

Exclamation Re: Sola Scriptura: Looking for help in a debate

Statement of CAF policy on calls to "Board Swarm".

Posts/threads that include a request/suggestion for other forum readers/members to visit someone else’s forum for the purposes of apologetics debate will be deleted/edited to remove the links.

In an effort to illuminate and explain the Catholic faith, CA makes every effort to provide our participants with a pleasant and informative place on the internet where Catholics and non-Catholics may gather.

It is our hope that respectful dialogue and discussion will lead to better faith understandings. And so in charity, we ask that our forums not be used for encouraging mass visits to other websites. In the past these kinds of efforts, although perhaps well intentioned, leave participants at other websites with negative impressions.

Your cooperation in helping promote these aims of faith exposition, hope for fruitful discussion and charity in implementation are sincerely appreciated.

Your servant in Christ,
Michael Francis
