The Epistemic Fortunes of Sola Scriptura
The appeal to sola scriptura, scripture alone, had devastating consequences for the canonical heritage of the Church within Western Christendom, systematically eroding and eliminating everything that could not be grounded in scripture. Thus, the great doctrines of the Church, like the doctrine of the Trinity, were now displaced by theories of revelation and inspiration. Paradoxically, doubt triumphed over fellowship and faith. The Reformers who failed to reach an agreement on critical issues of faith, found themselves cornered when asked to defend their foundationalism and divided the Church into a network of warring factions. Not surprisingly, friendly overtures to Eastern Orthodoxy failed.
