The Loss of the Authority of Scripture

“The loss of the authority of the Scriptures deprives modern Protestantism of its power to discuss doctrine with Rome. Roman Christians ask their “separated brethren” in the Protestant churches, if you reject the doctrine of Mary’s immaculate conception as unscriptural, then why do so many of you reject also Christ’s virgin birth, a doctrine which your fathers confessed with the Church of all ages and which undoubtedly is based on Holy Scripture?” — Hermann Sasse

From The Inspiration of Holy Scripture , an article published in the American Evangelical magazine Christianity Today, March 16, 1962.

    Great quote. Sasse is quite right. Although I’d point out that anyone who denies Christ’s virgin birth is not a true Protestant and has denied the faith. I’m tired of liberals populating confessional churches and talking out both sides of their mouths. They could at least have some integrity and leave and form their own liberal churches with liberal confessions instead of infesting true churches and forcing out the confessional “bigots” as they call them.

    Though this does not directly comment on the post… I had two interesting calls to members of two of the churches I serve… One member is rejecting much of what is in the Scriptures and is leaving our church (LCC) to join a liberal church (ELCIC). The other member wants to add to the scriptures with “other gospels.” This is a reflection of the loss of the authority of the Scriptures –not on the part of it being God’s Word, but rather that we think that we can be judges over it by our own wisdom.
