QuoteDoes the Scripture explain Avogadro's number?
6.02e+23 as in the number of atoms that any mole of anything contains. Lol- surprises me to see that in a thread like this but I understand what you are saying.QuotePosted by: Wycliffes_Shillelagh

From what I understand, Sola Scriptura is the term to describe the belief that the written Scriptures are the sole Authority of Truth on this earth, and it came after they broke away from the roman church, or thought they did at least. A "solution" in response to men adding their own opinions as God breathed.
What the Pontiff did was surely an extreme in regards to truth, yeah, but I posit Sola Scriptura is another extreme. There needs to be balance, and the command is to not add to, nor to take away, from His Words.
If God is still speaking today, surely He's still revealing Truth to His people. You may say we have the Bible and that's enough. We have the most accessibility to the Scriptures mankind ever had, and we have 40k different denominations and different interpretations and teachings of the Scriptures, from the nature of apostles to the rapture of the believers, even if women are allowed to wear pants. We still need Him like mankind always has.
The Bible is definitely the measuring standard of Truth, I'd say, like the speed of light in a certain time is the standard of a kilometer, and it's also the most Complete collection of The Truth and revelation of God's Will we have, but we can't forget the Spirit of God, prophecies and prophets, revelations given to His people today.
In short, I honestly believe Sola Scriptura is bologna, but I can't blame someone for wanting to stick with the Bible, because it really does have all you need to grow well, provided you don't read things in it.
This. Just this. Very well said.
This sums it it perfect for me as well.
yes God is still revealing truth today as He always has... but not some new truth... we have all we need to get out of this mess and where He has promised us we can go... He reveals personal truths about personal situations, He reveals things about current events and even will warn when things are coming but not one things will be revealed that is needful that has not been revealed... anyone who gives serious study to the bibe knows that it is inexhaustible... the knowledge can not be presumed, he can it is like Jesus did with the little boys basket, He takes it and pulls meat out of meat and bread out of bread to feed times the perceived worth and have abundance left over...
