II Tim 3:16 and Sola Scriptura

Before I begin, I’d like to thank those who are participating in the comments on the article, “Jesus Christ established the Catholic Church as described in the New Testament”. This subject was brought up in those comments and let me explain something to you, the epistle known as the 2nd Letter of St. Paul to St. Timothy (2 Tim for short), has nothing to do with Sola Scriptura.

  2. Hi De Maria,

    Long time,no see!

    Would you like to participate in a four round debate with me?

    I am affirming that the Bible teaches the Reformed principle of Sola Scriptura and that 2 Timothy 3:16 is a clear, supportive text for this position.

    A simple definition of Sola Scriptura would be: Scripture alone is the only infallible rule of faith or spiritual standard for the church. Other standards exist and can be used, as long as they are in agreement with the written Word of God.

    Hi!

    Would you like to participate in a four round debate with me?

    Sure.

    I am affirming that the Bible teaches the Reformed principle of Sola Scriptura and that 2 Timothy 3:16 is a clear, supportive text for this position.

    Ok. Of course, I deny that Sola Scripture is taught in the Bible.

    A simple definition of Sola Scriptura would be: Scripture alone is the only infallible rule of faith or spiritual standard for the church.

    Of course, I disagree with that. The Catholic Church is infallible and therefore the Scriptures contain no errors.

    Other standards exist and can be used, as long as they are in agreement with the written Word of God.

    Actually, we are in agreement here. We believe that all true doctrine must agree with Sacred Tradition and Scripture. If any doctrine disagrees with either, it disagrees with both. Because Sacred Tradition and Scripture are both the Word of God.

    Let me know how and when you would like to proceed.
