WHAT DOES SCRIPTURE SAY?
Scripture has what we need to know God.
Why is this a big deal?
During the reformation, it was believed that the Pope and his bishops were the “True interpreters” of scripture. To go against them would be to go against God.
Problem: The selling of indulgences for time off in purgatory, or into heaven.

Scripture wins.

Salvation comes from God.
Ephesians 2:8-10
