Sola Scriptura - Scripture Alone

II Timothy 1:6-14, II Timothy 3:10-17II Peter 1:19-21, II Peter 3:15-16

Today is part (1 of 5) pillars of faith.  The first pillar we look at is Sola Scriptura which means by scripture alone.  These pillars of faith came out of the reformation.   II Timothy 3:16 clearly states that the scripture were inspired by God.  II Peter 1:19-21 adds further clarification.

Additional Comments:

  • The consistence of scripture is the result of all of it being directed by God through the spirit.

  • In II Peter 3:15-16 the apostle Peter refers to the writings of Paul of scripture even though he acknowledged that some of what Paul wrote was hard to understand.

  • It was in AD 325 that the First Council of Nicaea convened where Bishops started the process of developing consistence in beliefs for the whole of Christendom.  What we think of as the Bible, or Canon of Scripture developed over the next couple of hundred years follow the First Council of Nicaea.

  • Our understanding of faith issues should be supported by the scripture.  We should exercise bible based faith and practices.

  • We should have unity in essentials and Grace in non-essentials.
