 Sola Scriptura
That means an attempt to hijack this quote to support sola scriptura is futile (if not dishonest), since it would require a hopelessly incorrect understanding of Cyril's method of systematic theology, the doctrinal schema he sets forth in Catechetical Lectures, and his view of the authority of Scripture.
Were there time and space to cycle through each of the patristic quotes proffered by Protestants arguing for sola scriptura, we could demonstrate in each case that the Fathers are being quoted out of context and without regard to the rest of their statements on the authority of Scripture, Tradition and the magisterium.
Scriptura, Traditio and Magisterium may be summarized in this way: Scriptura is the object of the Church's interpretation; Traditio is the Church's lived interpretation of Scripture; and Magisterium is the organ of the Church that does the interpreting.

 Alpha and Omega Ministries, The Christian Apologetics Ministry of James R. White
The doctrine of sola scriptura, simply stated, is that the Scriptures and the Scriptures alone are sufficient to function as the regula fide, the "rule of faith" for the Church.
Now, some opponents of sola scriptura have engaged in what can only be called cheap debating tricks in attempting to force the defender of Scriptural sufficiency to prove a "universal negative." That is, the less honest debater might attempt to force me to prove the non-existence of another rule of faith.
White, you claim that sola scriptura is true, or pardon me, your claim that sola scriptura is true requires you to say that all apostolic traditions, or at least all of them that the church was meant to have, are recorded in Scripture.

Sola Scriptura is the teaching and belief that there is only one special revelation from God that man possesses today, the written Scriptures or the Bible, and that consequently the Scriptures are materially sufficient and are by their very nature as being inspired by God the ultimate authority for the Church.
That the fathers were firm believers in the principle of sola Scriptura is clearly seen from the writings of Cyril of Jerusalem, the bishop of Jerusalem in the mid fourth century.
The early Church operated on the basis of the principle of sola scriptura and it was this historical principle that the Reformers sought to restore to the Church.

 A Critique of the Evangelical Doctrine of Solo Scriptura
In this chapter we shall examine this aberrant modern Evangelical concept of solo scriptura and explain why it is imperative that the Evangelical church recognize it to be as dangerous as the distorted concepts of solafide that are prevalent in the Church today.
The roots of solo scriptura lay not in the Apostles, not in the early Church, and not in the Reformers, but instead in the individualism of the Radical Reformation, the rationalism of the Enlightenment, and the democratic populism of early America.
Solo scriptura denies the necessity of that context, and it denies the necessity of that Church.

 Sola Scriptura and Literacy - Mar-Apr -1999 - Catholic Faith
As illogical as the doctrine of sola scriptura would appear to have been in the early Church, it would have been more so during the Dark Ages, when even fewer people could read and fewer still could afford their own copy of the Scriptures.
A favorite ploy of Protestants defending sola scriptura, is to accuse the Catholic Church of deliberately withholding the Scriptures from the laity by banning translations — implying such action is contrary to the Gospel.
The danger of sola scriptura is believing each individual has the right and the duty to interpret for himself what the Scriptures actually teach.

 Christianity Applied: Sola Scriptura Means Scripture Alone
That is, a perversion in the biblical doctrine of Sola Scriptura (which is Latin for Scripture Alone, and expresses the doctrine that the Bible is to be the only authoritative rule for a Christian's belief and practice).
Thus, the term Sola Scriptura is retained but it is not only emptied of its true sense, it is also turned on its head so that it means just the opposite of what its words plainly signify.
The real Sola Scriptura, as they would have it believed, is that the Holy Scriptures are authoritative but that they are not be understood apart from the testimony of "the historic Church." In effect, their doctrine is that the Scriptures must be interpreted in the light of church traditions.

But the sola Scriptura does not stand on its own; it is appended to the sola’s that precede it.
Sola Scriptura, therefore, exhorts us to proclaim the Scripture as gospel, as the Word of salvation given to us in and by Christ Jesus through the Spirit, a Word spoken to us to be taken into our hearts and believed and trusted.
If Swinburne is correct, then the catholic Christian must reject the Reformation principle of sola Scriptura—at least he must reject it if the principle is interpreted, not as I suggested earlier, as instruction to proclaim the story of Scripture, but as the assertion of Scripture as the supreme and exclusive norm of theology.

 Biblical Theology and the Analogy of Faith
Those who are committed to sola scriptura want their understanding of such passages as well as those setting forth all other biblical teachings, to be deepened and corrected by a careful exegesis of all of them.
sola scriptura would be achieved only when the exegetical method left the interpreter with no alternative but to let the text speak for itself in its own terms.
sola scriptura was now within the reach of all those who would work with the biblical text to grasp its intended meanings and who were not obligated to shape those meanings to conform to some analogy of faith.

 Twenty One Reasons to Reject Sola Scriptura
They are, in essence, the meaning of the doctrine of Sola Scriptura, or "Scripture alone," which alleges that the Bible — as interpreted by the individual believer — is the only source of religious authority and is the Christian’s sole rule of faith or criterion regarding what is to be believed.
If the Protestant doctrine of Sola Scriptura were true, then since the Church existed for a time without the entire written Word of God, there would have been situations and doctrinal issues which could not have been resolved with finality until all of the New Testament books were complete.
If the doctrine of Sola Scriptura were true, then it should be expected that Protestants would all be in agreement in terms of doctrine, as the Bible could not simultaneously teach contradictory beliefs.

Sometimes this great slogan is quoted as if to mean, "I believe in sola Scriptura, this is my interpretation, therefore if you disagree, you are denying Scripture." To disagree with an interpretation of Scripture is not necessarily the same thing as disagreeing with Scripture itself.
By sola Scriptura our Reformed fathers meant to teach that Scripture alone is the inspired, inerrant Word of God, not the traditions of men or even the Church.
Sola Scriptura does not mean that we do not look at any other books than Scripture when interpreting it.

 A Quick Ten-Step Refutation of Sola Scriptura (This Rock: September 2004)
Catholics agree with Protestants that Scripture is a "standard of truth"—even the preeminent one—but not in a sense that rules out the binding authority of authentic apostolic Tradition and the Church.
Sola scriptura can’t even be deduced from implicit passages.
When all is said and done, Protestants who accept sola scriptura as their rule of faith appeal to the Bible.

 Sola Scriptura
The term "sola Scriptura" or "the Bible alone" as the measure of truth is short hand, as it were, for the emphatic and repeated statements of Scripture and of the commandment of God.
The principle of "sola Scriptura" is consistent with the very way in which the word of truth that comes from God, is to be interpreted, as Psalm 36:9 explains, "For with thee is the fountain of life; in thy light we see light".
Since the Spirit does this by Scripture, obviously, it is in accord with the principle that Scripture itself is the infallible rule of interpretation of its own truth "it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth" (I John 5:6).

 sola scriptura
The idea of Sola Scriptura is so foundational to Protestantism that to them it is tantamount to denying God to question it, but as our Lord said, "every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a bad tree bringeth forth evil fruit" (Matthew 7:17).
If we judge Sola Scriptura by its fruit then we are left with no other conclusion than that this tree needs to be "hewn down, and cast into the fire" (Matthew 7:19).
Most Protestants, because their theological basis of Sola Scriptura could only yield disunity and argument, have long ago given up on the idea of true Christian unity and considered it a ridiculous hypothesis that there might be only one Faith.

 Dialogue on Sola Scriptura & the Church Fathers
Sola Scriptura is far different from Mariology, because it is on Protestant "turf" and Protestants understand their own beliefs and outlooks.
Instead of sola Scriptura, the unanimous principle of authority enunciated by both Scripture and the Church fathers, we now have sola Ecclesia, blind submission to an institution which is unaccountable to either Scripture or history.
Because sola Scriptura has to do with all three concepts: it is a Rule of Faith which places Church and Tradition in a particular relation to Scripture in a way (I would argue) that the Fathers and the early Church never did.

 Sola Scriptura: A Response to a Catholic Writer : Christian Courier   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
