Sola Scriptura….Is it True?

Sola scriptura (Latin ablative, “by Scripture alone”) is the Christian doctrine that the Bible is the supreme authority in all matters of doctrine and practice. Sola scriptura does not deny that other authorities govern Christian life and devotion, but sees them all as subordinate to and corrected by the written word of God.
Yes, Sola Scriptura is true. The Bible clearly teaches not to add to, take away or change Gods word. Plus the Bible is complete and correct on all doctrine. God never changes, His truths never change.
Of course many including the Roman Catholic church disagree with Sola Scriptura. They believe God does change and His truths change. God says, as an example that adultery is wrong. Adultery is always wrong and will always be a sin against God.
Down through the years the Catholic church has added what they say is new doctrine to the Bible. Doctrine such as praying to the dead, purgatory, Limbo, Mary being born sinless, therefore not needing a Saviour, etc. In the catholic church it is taught the Pope is infallible when it comes to all doctrine therefore previous Popes were always correct in doctrine even though Popes down through the centuries often disagreed with each other.
The church is NOT above God and has no right to change what God says. No one has a right to change the word of God. Gods word IS the final authority.

What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it. Dueteronomy 12:32

18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. Revelation chapter 22

5 Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.
6 Add thou not unto his words, lest he reprove thee, and thou be found a liar. Proverbs chapter 30

2 Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I command you. Dueteronomy chapter 4

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works. 11 Timothy chapter 2

18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Matthew chapter 5

6 For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Malachi chapter 3

6 The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.
7 Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever. Psalms chapter 12

2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. Psalms chapter 138

As you can see, God says in His book it is a very dangerous thing to change His word. It is always wrong and always will be.

Some say it is ok to do because there are things not in the Bible. Really? The Bible is not complete? God forgot some things? The Bible is not up to date? The fact is, the Bible is complete and way ahead of the times it was put down on paper. More later as I recall…….
