[quote=kaycee]Sola scriptura says the Church always has an ultimate authority to which to turn: and the Church isn’t that ultimate authority! The Church is in need of revelation from Her Lord, and that she finds in Scripture, not in “traditions” that are uncertain." aomin.org/This%20Bereans%20passage.html
I think this qualifies as a “weknow” as James White’s sister, Patty Bonds, now a Catholic convert puts it, “A “weknow” is a** presupposition ** that we apply to a scripture that keeps us from seeing what is really written there.”
Why when there are so many biblical verses that contradict this. Kaycee just leaves those “on the bookshelf”. Completely ignoring outright biblical support for oral tradition without any such exceptions for the “normative” or times of “enscripturization”.
1 Thessalonians 2:13-13For this reason we also constantly thank God that when you received the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe.
1 Corinthians 11:2 - Now I praise you because you remember me in everything and hold firmly to the traditions, just as I delivered them to you.
2 Thessalonians 2:15- So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by** word of mouth ** or by letter.
I can continue on and on. Its all biblical. Note there are NO exceptions. Its Kaycee and James White which make the alterations and exceptions.
I’ll leave you with this last verse:
1 Corinthians 1:12 - What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, "I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.” Is Christ divided? "
so therefore we can appropriately modify this to modern times, without changing its meaning.
"What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Billy Graham”; another, “I follow James White”; another, "I follow my own interpretation”; still another, “I follow Christ.” Is Christ divided? "
Thus you must ask yourself " Do I follow Jesus’ the implied commandment OF JESUS to obey His earthly church which has the authority(founded by Christ) to bind and loosen. Or do you listen to your own Man made traditions and translations and thus formulate what keeps us divided against the prayers and desires of Christ (1 Corinthians 1:10).
In conclusion, Sola Scriptura is a fallacy invented by Man, and defended by man with additional nonbiblical alterations, because if one were strickily Sola Scriptura one would realize that the truth comes “whether by word of mouth or by letter.” through Christ himself and His command through his Church’s by Apostolic succession, “the word of God which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but for what it really is, the word of God, which also performs its work in you who believe” , and 1 Timothy 3:15 particularly "the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the PILAR and FOUNDATION of TRUTH”
