5/26/2017

Signposts: Why Sola Scriptura Matters

4/28/2017
More
This year marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Central to the Reformation's theology was the idea of sola Scriptura, meaning "The Bible alone."

In this episode of Signposts I talk about an evangelical theology of Scripture, and why saying "The Bible alone" is not a recipe for an anti-authority...

How should Christians respond to cultural transformations, many of which actively threaten the beliefs and practices of the church?
