Because I can in good conscience, as a Catholic, affirm the ETS doctrinal statement, I do not intend to resign as a member of ETS.What? The ETS doctrinal statement says:
The Bible alone, and the Bible in its entirety, is the Word of God written and is therefore inerrant in the autographs. God is a Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each an uncreated person, one in essence, equal in power and glory.How can a Roman Catholic be in agreement with sola Scriptura? Am I missing something here?
Beckwith also blogs:
I thought it wise for me to err on the side of the Church with historical and theological continuity with the first generations of Christians that followed Christ’s Apostles.Historical and theological continuity? Am I missing something here? Roman Catholicism may be something, but it is not any more historically or theologically continuous with the first generations of Christians than Protestantism.
