Brief thoughts on Sola Scriptura

One thing that I’ve started to notice is that everyone (Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant) approaches the Bible and church history with some sort of hermenuetic.  That hermeneutic will affect the way that you understand communication.  Even though Whiteford ridiculed a literal or normal hermeneutic, it seems to me that he even makes use of a literal or normal hermenuetic when it comes to understanding the Bible and the early church fathers. 

Part of his argument rested on his literal understanding of the writings of the early church fathers.  I have no problem with this.   The problem is when we seek to understand Scripture in a manner that doesn’t do justice to the intentions of the original author.
