I really dunno why I started this thread, moderators, if you wish to delete it, go for it, but there seems to be something missing from the “Sola Scriptura” debate.
“Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” John 20:30
This is often used to show the existence of additional “Tradition” because everything was not written, but the emphasis of this verse seems to be that even if the rest of scripture were to fall away, this one book alone would be sufficient to find salvation. So, then even if I were to reject the catholic church, never go to mass, not participate in the sacraments (Eucharist is not mentioned in John), I could have life in his name. Sweet!
