Joshua 23:6 - Only take courage, and be careful to observe all things that are written in the book of the law of Moses: and turn not aside from them neither to the right hand nor to the left:
Is that teaching sola scriptura? As a Catholic, I believe it’s not, but I was wondering how some of you would respond to that if you were challenged with that verse?
I would answer by saying that if Joshua was teaching sola scriptura there, he is teaching to go by the five books of Moses alone, and that would automatically discount the rest of Scripture. Who gets the authority to add books after the books of Moses if the books of Moses is our final authority.
That is the obvious answer, but what I’m hoping for help in is, why did Joshua say it like that? What did he really mean?
