By Jim Nov 09 2017 Sola ScripturaKent BrandenburgScripture teaches and assumes other things other than scripture. Arguments from scripture can't be made without something not in scripture. Scripture is irrelevant before its ink dries with the present spin on sola scriptura. 1660 reads There are 4 Comments Check out the Tyler comment below the post Jim - Thu, 11/09/2017 - 9:03pm Check out the Tyler comment below the post Twitter Jim's Doctrinal Statement Huh? Bert Perry - Fri, 11/10/2017 - 11:54am No argument that Scripture is clarified in some of its difficult points by secular history, light is shed on it in certain points by science, Psalms 24:1, all that. Where Kent loses me is when he suggests that proper applications of understanding Scripture in light of its setting include things like green highlights in hair and whether or not music in church uses the 12 bar blues. Maybe it's simply that most of the arguments I've seen against such things are simple guilt by association fallacies, but if one's going to argue that a broader view of Sola Scriptura will necessarily lead to some of these points, one ought to .....have a semi-coherent argument in support of that viewpoint.

Tyler is a pastor in Olympia, WA and an Investigations Manager with a Washington State agency. He's the author of the book What's It Mean to Be a Baptist? :^) Bert Perry - Fri, 11/10/2017 - 4:34pm Tyler, agreed that's impressive, or perhaps depressive. Reminds me of a phrase you probably learned at Maranatha in the Navy; "If you can't blind them with brilliance, you can baffle them with <redacted>". That sure is a lot of $50 words to accuse people of being squishy with meaning, isn't it? But that said, I'm completely convinced, and tonight, I'm going to get a haircut that will eliminate every last green highlight from my hair. Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
