Scripture Alone: what it is and what it ain’t | Culture analysis | Sydneyanglicans.net

Scripture alone doesn’t deny the limited value of tradition as an authority. Very helpful article.

What does this mean for evangelical Anglicans (and other inheritors of the Reformation) today? Scripture is the final authority to which all Christian thinking must be subject. However, it’s either arrogant or simply naive to imagine we are the first readers of Scripture, or that we can or should read it without reference to that tradition. And if a reading of Scripture is proposed that breaks with the witness of the tradition of faithful Christian readers down the two millennia of its being read, we do well to hear alarm bells ringing.
