The Final Authority–Scripture Alone

As we remember the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, we are reviewing each of the key points and reaffirming our understanding of the factors that led to this movement.  Next Wednesday (12.13.17) at 6:30pm we will look at our final sola—Sola Scriptura.

The Reformers not only stood upon the authority and sufficiency of the Word of God, many gave their very life for its truths. Before his opponents, Luther made the bold assertion: “Unless I am convinced by Scripture and plain reason—I do not accept the authority of the Popes and Councils, for they have contradicted each other—my conscience is captive to the Word of God. I cannot and I will not recant anything, for to go against conscience is neither right nor safe. God help me. Amen.”

Christians today make the same proclamation and continue to stand for the fidelity of Scripture.  In a culture and world system that would undermine and marginalize its truths at every turn, Believers hold fast to it.  To do otherwise would be unwise and unsafe.

Join us this Wednesday as we explore what the bible specifically has to say. If childcare is needed, please let Renee Pitman know each week by Wednesday morning.

Key Text: Galatians 1:6-9 “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel — not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.”
