I find it very amusing that Protestants indignantly excoriate the Catholic Church for teaching doctrine that is not explicitly spelled out in Scripture. Protestants so often say: “NEVER does Scripture say…..” Nowhere in Scripture does it say…..” etc.
And yet the Protestant Doctrine or the teaching of Sola Scriptura is “Nowhere in Scripture” and “NEVER does Scripture say” that all Christian Doctrine and teaching must be found explicitly in Scripture. That is a HUGE double standard don’t you think?
So, show me where it says in Scripture that all beliefs must be found in scripture? If there is no scripture, then for Sola Scriptura Protestants, Sola Scriptura must be a “tradition of men”. Which it certainly is. And the man who began it was Martin Luther.
