The title of this blog-site is deliberately misleading; I only wish I was confirmed about my own theological beliefs. The nature of my blog is biographical and not intentionally argumentative. With that understanding, I would like perspective on a few questions I have regarding the doctrine of sola scriptura. Rant, cuss, persuade - I'd like to know what others are feeling on the subject.
- How do you understand the doctrine of sola scriptura?
- Do you see any shortcomings in the doctrine? If so, what are they?
- If you accept the doctrine, how do you reconcile it with the multiplicity of differing theological systems - at least those that operate under the doctrine of sola scriptura?
I'm honestly not looking for a fight; these are questions I have asked myself, and I've not been 100% satisfied with my answers.
