#322 Is Sola Scriptura Compatible with Charismatic Theology?

What is the doctrine of Sola Scriptura? What was the authority in the Garden of Eden? Why did written revelation become necessary in God’s economy? Why should we no longer expect oral revelation from God as the infant Church in the wilderness once did? On tonight’s programme we look at comments made by Francis Turretin, a 17th century reformer, on the issue of written revelation from God versus that of oral revelation. Can they help us understand this issue better? Are Charismatic claims of ‘prophetic words’ from men like Michael Brown consistent and compatible with sola scriptura?

#229 Nabeel Qureshi: Bible as Foundation is ‘Idolatry’

Nabeel responded by saying that we should not start with the Bible. Was Nabeel right? Is his teaching here dangerous? How should we respond as Christians to such a question and what should we declare during such a witnessing situation?
