WHAT is "sola scriptura'?
Grace, mercy, and peace,
You may or may not have a question about the phrase''"sola scriptura" I have in the footer of the Arnion Ministries website. Here is the definition:
Question: "What is sola scriptura?"
Answer: The phrase sola scriptura is from the Latin: sola having the idea of “alone,” “ground,” “base,” and the word scriptura meaning “writings”—referring to the Scriptures. Sola scriptura means that Scripture alone is authoritative for the faith and practice of the Christian. The Bible is complete, authoritative, and true. “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16).
The phrase means just what it says - scripture only. Bible only! Scripture is the foundation for my life, and I base the things I share with you on biblical principals. The Word of God NEVER fails and is full of life. We can have faith in the Truth of the Word!
