I confess the first time I’d ever heard this term was about a year ago in an email with Sean. As I was raised Catholic, accepted Christ while attending a lesser-known evangelistic church and have since joined a Baptist church, I lean toward the “bible is sufficient” philosophy. I am open, however, to additional teachings, but then I find myself rejecting them when they either contradict scripture or it’s not readily apparent to me why I should accept the additional teaching. When I think that the New Testament promises a freedom in Christ, it’s hard to voluntarily accept additional rules. The book of Romans, for example, warns against voluntarily subjecting oneself to Jewish law after accepting Christs. I’m still exploring this subject though; still open, still learning.
Doug over at Coffeeswirls is teaching a Sunday School class on this subject. Catch up on his first two posts here and here. And if you have an opinion on this subject, I’d love to hear it, but make sure it’s in agreement with scripture. 🙂
