Sola Scriptura: The Authority and Sufficiency of Scripture

2 Timothy 3:14-17

In the third and final message of our 2017 Bible Conference, Dr. Johnson speaks of the role of Luther and the reformers in bringing Scripture back to its place of supreme authority in the church (at least the Protestant Church). It is not the Pope, or even the church that has the final say – but the Scriptures. At the same time there is a proper authority given to the church, but only as it functions according to and under the authority of the Scriptures. There is also a place for tradition, but again – tradition must also be subject to the word and not add something new or be contrary to, the word.
