“he only problem is that the “scriptura” can be interpreted many different ways (witness the many different understandings of same among different Protestant groups).”

But, but but...

Can’t the Church Fathers ALSO be interpreted many different ways???

Or did God supposedly give the Church Fathers the ability to write more clearly than the Apostles????

**********************

“”Sola Scriptura” is “sola stupid”.”

Great argument!

But tell it to St. Paul. He’ll disagree with you.

It’s nice to see that not all Protestants claim to speak for God. St. Paul certainly is a step down. Can you show where St. Paul advances the notion of sola scriptura?

No, but the Church Fathers can shed light on those things the Apostles taught that DIDN'T get written down in Scripture. And it can aid in understanding those things they DID write down.

"But tell it to St. Paul. He’ll disagree with you."

St. Paul specifically denied "sola scriptura". Try another argument.
