From the time of the apostles, Christians were united under the authority of the infallible, inerrant word of God.

 

“For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.” (Romans 15:4 KJV)

For hundreds of years in North America, Protestant denominations were united under the authority of the King James Version of the Bible. However, today we are witnessing a divide among Protestants greater than at any time since the Reformation.

The various conflicting Bible versions that have flooded the markets in the twentieth century are the major reason for this divide. The omission, addition, and substitution of words in today’s modern Bible versions have divided Christians over doctrines and the meaning of scripture verses.

 

“In these days we may be accused of bibliolatry, and other new crimes; but we shall hold to our belief in inspiration.” Charles Spurgeon

God’s promise to preserve his words was not an empty promise. The King James Version of the Bible is God’s inspired, preserved word for the world’s English speaking people.

Sola Scriptura, the rallying cry of the Protestant Reformation, means that Scripture alone is the only authority for the Christian faith and its practices.

Although the apostate Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches acknowledge the Bible is both divinely inspired and authoritative, they deny that it is the sole authority for faith and practice. They insist that their decrees, rituals, and traditions are also divinely inspired and equally authoritative.

Their unregenerate followers often challenge Sola Scriptura believers to show them where in the Bible it explicitly states that Scripture alone is the only authority for the faith. Knowing the Bible doesn’t explicitly state that it is the sole authority for faith and practice, they walk away believing they’ve proved their point.

Sola Scriptura believers shouldn’t have to prove that the Bible is the sole authority for the Christian faith because both apostate churches agree that the Bible is divinely inspired and authoritative. Therefore, the burden should be on the apostate churches to prove that their added decrees, rituals, and traditions are divinely inspired and equally authoritative with the Scripture.

The Bible declares itself to be God-breathed, inerrant, and authoritative. It also says that God does not change His mind or contradict Himself. And the Bible does not allow for decrees, rituals, and traditions that contradict its teachings.

Sola Scriptura is not so much an argument against tradition as it is an argument against unbiblical, extra-biblical, and anti-biblical doctrines and practices.

Unless these apostate churches can prove that their decrees, rituals, and traditions are divinely inspired and equally authoritative with the Scripture, the only way for a Christian to know what God says about faith and practices is to consult what He has revealed in the Bible. 

The Bible says it’s God’s written word. It claims to be infallible, authoritative, and trustworthy. Without proof the same cannot be said for the traditions, practices, and rituals of the Orthodox and Roman Catholic churches.

It’s not difficult to understand what the Bible teaches, but it’s impossible to believe what it teaches without being born again. Peace.
