Sola Scriptura

During the month of October, our five-part Sunday sermon series will focus on each of The Five Solas:
Sola Scriptura (scripture alone), Sola Fide (faith alone), Sola Gratia (grace alone), Solus Christus (Christ alone), Soli Deo Gloria (to the glory of God alone).

It all started 500 years ago in 1517 when Martin Luther wrote out all his objectives to the process of indulgences and other deviated doctrines. He ended up with 94 objections he posted on the town bulletin board to invite debate. 

One of the questions Luther addressed was, "Should the Bible be our only authority?" The teachings of the Catholic church said otherwise, that it was not only scripture but, also the teachings of the Pope and traditions. 

In Psalm 19:7-10, we see the Bible is no ordinary book. It's been "expired" / breathed from God. God's word is clear. He is an effective communicator. The Bible is not reserved for scholars to interpret, we are to teach it to our children. 

The Bible is infallible. It cannot be in error ever. Mistakes are impossible. 
The Word of God is reliable; man's traditions are not. 
The Bible is authoritative. 
It is sufficient. 

It is only through the word of God that we can "attract" people to the church and it is only through the word of God that we can change the world.
