I submit and subject everything that I am and everything that I do to the Word of God. That is what Christianity is. We are to present ourselves as a living sacrifice to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is through His Word that He exercises His authority over His church during this period of time we call the "Church age."
Is the Bible the sole and infallible (incapable of making mistakes) rule of faith for the Church? Or must we have other on-going revelation from God?
We too, too often, forget that he is God, and beside him there is none else. - Charles Spurgeon
Let them praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is exalted; His glory is above earth and heaven. (Psalm 148:13 NASB)
For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8-9 NASB)
In today's post continuing our series on the "5 Solas" we arrive at Sola Scriptura which is translated as: Scripture Alone. This one focuses on the fact that the Bible, the Holy Word of God is all that is needed for what we need to know about salvation from sin, and is also the only standard by which we measure the Christian life.
Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." (John 14:6 NASB)
The Reformation was one of the greatest times of the historic Christian faith. For during this time we have a great awakening and return to God's Word as authority in all matters of faith in practice. The Reformation entailed many things but was largely built on what is referred to as the 5 "Solas".
