An honest inquirer must ask, then, whether Luther’s doctrine of "Scripture alone"

The whole debate is disingenuous. Luther did not really advocate 'Scriptures alone', he advocated that Scriptures were the highest authority and should be open to the masses to read.

There must be a bit more to it because this allows the RCC to invent doctrine out of whole cloth, like Marianism.
