Tradition 0.5: A Case for "No Creed but the Bible"
"No creed but the Bible" is an unpopular stance among thinking Evangelicals today. Many argue that the Reformers said "sola Scriptura" to mean Scripture alone as traditionally read by the ancient creeds of Christianity. They posit that while the Bible has magisterial authority, creeds have authority too--what they call "ministerial authority." I argue that attributing authority to creeds is too problematic. Another paradigm is needed.
