My point is this — you have Scripture and you have tradition.
If you are going to ignore scripture, you WILL ignore tradition.
Catholics do it, non-Catholics do it.
And you can’t blame Luther for sinful people regardless of which denomination they claim to come from.
I'm not ascribing Vines' personal sins to Luther. Vines did those things himself.
I am ascribing Vines' argument in justification of his sins to Luther.
Luther argued for using Scripture as the sole grounds for theological argument, denouncing both Tradition and Reason as extraneous and dangerous.
Luther also argued that one's own personal interpretation of Scripture was the ultimate rule of faith, not any external guide.
Vines is proceeding on precisely these principles.
