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?
What is the major issue facing the Charismatic movement? Does the movement really believe in Sola Scriptura in practice? What have Christian views been on Charismatic claims since the time of the Apostles? How should we look at the Charismatic movement?
