Theological Terms

This thread is for examination of terms used rather than for debate as to which concepts are correct.

The Scriptures

* Sola Scriptura means that Scripture Alone is used to establish truth.

* Tota Scriptura means that All of Scripture informs a person's conclusions about truth.

* Scripturalism is the belief that Scripture has a systematic monopoly on truth and is foundational for all of our knowledge about God and His will for us.

* Bibliolatry is a pejorative term used to describe the excessive dependence on the literal rendering of the Scriptures. It can also mean, in a broader sense, an excessive devotion to books.

(these definitions are open to revision, of course)

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven.
