**Disagreement Among Protestants And Sola Scriptura
The apparent unity of the Roman Catholic Church is illusory, as any informed Catholic would know. The unity is structural and organizational, but there are serious divisions at all levels, especially between the more liberal and conservative Catholics. Take the charismatic movement for an example. In Protestant circles, Charismatics form separate denominations (and so the distinction from other denominations is obvious). Whereas in the Catholic church, the charismatic groups remain under the Roman umbrella. Their differences from non-charismatic Catholics are hidden though they are just as real as in Protestant churches.
The unity we have as Catholics is the unity of authority. It may be the human heart that keeps people from embracing the Truth, but any Catholic who desires to know the teaching of the Church can find it.
It is easy to discover what the Catholic Church teaches, but where do I go to find out the official “sola Scripturists” teachings on:
–In vitro fertilization procedures
–Artificial birth control
–The death penalty
–Stem-cell research that entails destruction of human embryos
–Ordination of women
If you try to answer the question, you will see the difference.
The Church teaches with the authority given her by Jesus Christ. All are free to reject what she proclaims and teaches, but she continues to teach nonetheless. Anyone who desires to know the Truth she teaches knows where to go and can easily find it.
