SolA versus SolO scriptura[edit]

It seems likely that the more extreme position on Biblical authority (e.g. there IS NO authority between the Bible and the Reader) is more correctly termed Solo scriptura (or Tradition 0 if we use Heiko Oberman's terminology), and should be separated into its own category after Prima Scriptura.

"solo scriptura" redirects to this page, but the term doesn't appear anywhere in it. Either remove the redirection, or provide a definition. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2607:FEA8:1C80:4C:E13A:43B8:8A66:F723 (talk) 00:54, 25 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Incorrect statement that Jesus used the Palestinian Canon. This canon did not exist until around 90 A.D.[edit]


Overall, this article is bias in favor of the Protestants and is not balanced. Bro. Ignatius Mary 23:54, 20 February 2017 (UTC)

What about a discussion about Genesis/Bible and modern science? You insist to ignore this major issue. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2001:8003:1803:4800:EC81:ED40:83F2:A161 (talk) 09:22, 2 March 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Massive edit by anonymous editor[edit]

I just saw the massive edit by an anonymous editor. I didn't read it all. Much of it was corrective stuff like changing a capital to lowercase, and others. But there were changes of substance. Also, REFERENCES were changed in a major way, which I didn't check. Hopefully, knowledgeable editors will at least look these over to see if perhaps something important was not removed, or added. I added back in some links to other articles that were removed (which are in the "five solae" at top), and a semi-related link. But I don't wish to take the time to read every single change. Editors?

@Misty MH: To begin, I must ask why "ANONYMOUS" is capitalized (especially given that I'm much less anonymous than you are – you at least have my IP address)? But regarding the links you re-added, they are in direct violation of MOS:EMBED, which I have rectified. If you have any other questions about the edits, I'm happy to discuss, despite the fact that you make a point of suggesting that I am not a "knowledgeable editor" (an assessment that I hope was only made after a review of my experience as an editor here).

@ Answer: My request for knowledgeable editors had no reflection on you, and just wanted some others better than my editing skills to check. Thinking it was in reference to you was mistaken logic—and/or something else. I capitalized "anonymous" because—I wanted to.... But on a more serious note, maybe I was thinking there is no way to bold or italicize the title here. (I'll try it, just for fun.) I'll have to check out the MOS:EMBED thing if/when I have time. If internal links being in the article more than once is a mistake, it's quite a minor one. (Honestly, I didn't catch them at top because they were stuck in some sidebar.) But, in addition to all that—
I am pretty sure you also removed semi-related internal links that didn't need to be removed.
May I suggest that if you are going to edit a lot of formatting that you edit content in a separate pass? It makes it a lot easier for other editors to see what has actually changed, as the Website automatic feature is not perfect at making that clear. If you are a regular editor, perhaps you would like to edit under a user name, as anonymous edits always seemed to draw up natural concerns.
Not that it matters much, but I have been an editor here for 10 years (I think), and have contributed over a thousand edits, most of them useful. :-) Misty MH (talk) 05:09, 4 May 2018 (UTC) Misty MH (talk) 01:42, 30 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

No History section[edit]

I was disappointed today to see that Sola Scriptura has no History section. Can editors with access to this information please add that section? Thank you! Misty MH (talk) 01:44, 30 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]
