Yesterday we celebrated the triumph of biblical truth in God’s grace from the time of the Reformation. One of the key truths recovered in that time – referred to as the formal cause of the Reformation – was what has come to be known as sola Scriptura, or “Scripture alone.”* This began with Luther’s famous speech at the Diet of Worms, where he was tried for his views and declared that his conscience was bound to Scripture alone.
We played the following clip at our seminar, and if you missed it or wanted to see it again, here it is below!
Want to learn more about “Scripture alone”? We recommend Keith Mathison’s work on this, either his article entitled “Solo Scriptura” at ModernReformation, or his book The Shape of Sola Scriptura at Amazon.
Give thanks for God’s grace recovered in the Reformation!
*As distinguished from the “material cause,” which was sola fide, justification “by faith alone.”
