When it comes to discussions between Protestants and Catholics, a lot of them tend to stall because not only are there disagreements on certain issues; there are also disagreements when it comes to how to decide the issues in the first place!
Perhaps on no topic is this more apparent than the question of sola Scriptura. For Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley, the idea of the Bible as the sole and sufficient infallible rule of faith was foundational to their Protestant understanding of Christian authority.
But if sola Scriptura WASN’T Christ’s plan, if Jesus DIDN’T intend the Old and New Testaments to be the sole and sufficient infallible rule of faith for Christians, then how DID Our Lord intend His followers to settle matters of faith and morals?
Matt and Ken discuss how these questions began to take shape for them in the first part of a multi-episode series on the question of sola Scriptura.
