Quote of the Day: Sola Scriptura

Phil over at http://teampyro.blogspot.com says this:

“A follow-up message asks me if I am suggesting it’s wrong for someone to
abandon all books and human teachers and rely only on what he can glean from
the Bible for himself. Answer: yes, I think that’s wrong because it’s arrogant
and reflects a sinful kind of unteachability. This is my whole point: sola
Scriptura doesn’t rule out the valid role of teaching in the church.

Furthermore, it is simply not the case that any common, unskilled, unschooled
individual, sitting down with his Bible and no other tools, can expect to come
to a full and mature understanding of Scripture without any help from godly
teachers who understand some things better than he will ever get it on his
own.”

I could not have said it better myself. Bravo Phil!
