Orthodoxy and Protestantism

Comparative Theology series

St Mark‘s servants prep course

Slide2

Orthodoxy and the non- Orthodox

All we have been given is the

WAY

God has never told us the spiritual status of the non-Orthodox

- you can’t find it in any of the Fathers, or Scripture

Slide3

Magisterial Reformation

Supported by the German magistrates

Martin Luther is the revolutionist who stated the Reformation with by nailing the

95 theses

to the door of the church in

Wittenburg,Germany

1517

Slide4

Protestant Reformation

Insisted on the abolition of the selling of “

indulgences

Affirming the

supremacy

of the Bible

over

Church hierarchy

Slide5

The Five “Solas”

5 pillars of Protestant Reformation Theology

“Sola” – Latin for “alone

“Sola Scriptura” –

Scripture alone

“Sola Fide” – “

Faith Alone”

“Sola Gratia” – “

Grace Alone”

Solus

Christus

” -

Christ alone”

“Sola

Deo

Gloria” – “

Glory to God alone”

Slide6

“Sola Scriptura”

I have the right to believe freely, to be slave to no man’s authority, to confess what appears to be true whether it is proved or disproved, whether it spoken by Catholic or heretic…. In matters of faith I think neither council, nor Pope, nor any man has the power over my conscience. And where they disagree with Scripture, I deny pope and council and all. A simple layman armed with Scripture is greater than the mightiest Pope without it.” (Martin Luther)

Slide7

Swiss Reformer Zwingli

the Bible is the single exclusive source of all Christian doctrine and practice

Slide8

Orthodox disagreement of “Sola Scriptura”

Orthodoxy by contrast holds the Scripture in extremely high regard, but holds it to be:

a book written

by

the Church,

for

the Church, and

within

the Church

Reading Scripture correctly requires the light of

“Holy Tradition”

Slide9

Reformers believe:

Christian doctrine may be derived from the use of

reason

,

history

, and

textual study

.

Slide10

Orthodox Response

Sola scriptura fails its own test- this idea is found

nowhere

in the bible

“All Scripture

is

given by inspiration of God, and

is

profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,” 2 Timothy 3:16

Slide11

1 Timothy 3:15

“15 

but if I am delayed,

I write

so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in

the house of God, which is the church of the living God,

the pillar and ground of the truth

.”

Slide12

“Tradition” - Paradosis

“Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the

traditions

which you were taught, whether by

word

or our epistle.” 2 Thessalonians 2:15

English NIV translation distorts what the Bible says

Teaching/ tradition

Slide13

2nd Orthodox Response

T

he

Bible has no

systematic theology

or catechism in the Bible

They teach their own

personal infallibility

They violate their own principle

every time

the Bible is taught

Slide14

“Sola Scriptura”

says that the Holy Spirit guides the individual reader

Then why so much conflict within Protestantism

Slide15

3rd Orthodox Response

Historically the doctrine of “sola Scriptura” is nowhere to be found in the writings of the Early Church Fathers

367 AD St Athanasius instructed the churches which books were to be considered canonical

Slide16

“Sola Fide”- Faith alone

Teaches

justification

comes by faith alone

- justification means being declared righteous/ Imputed righteousness

To be recognized as righteous by God without having any righteousness in the person

- change in

legal status

but not in

personal holiness

Slide17

Faith alone in Scripture

“You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.”

James

2:24

Slide18

Ephesians 2:8-9

“For

by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves;

it is

the gift of God,

not of works, lest anyone should boast

.”

Slide19

St Paul preaches against the Jewish law for salvation, but not of good works themselves

- God’s

grace makes the transformation possible

Slide20

“Sola Gratia”- Grace alone

only by God’s grace that accomplishes

salvation

-

no act of man contributes to salvation in any way

Slide21

Orthodox Response

Grace of God working in cooperation with your

will

= synergy

Slide22

Philippians 2:12

“Therefore

, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence,

work out your own salvation with fear and trembling

;”

Slide23

Solus Christus- Christ alone

Denial

of the

priesthood

 

Christ is only one who has any role in our salvation

Emphasize the priesthood of all believers

Slide24

Orthodox Response

Agrees to priesthood of all believers, but not the

eldership

Clergy not mediators, but

intercessors

Clergy have a role to play in salvation by administering the sacraments

Slide25

Sola deo Gloria- God alone is due glory

Direct rejection of the veneration of the saints and other holy objects

Slide26

Orthodox Response

God alone is worthy of our

worship,

veneration is given to saints because of

God’s work in

them

Rejection of His

incarnation

and of His work in human beings in history to deny honor to those people

Rejection of God’s work through the

material

world
