Worth Considering…

“The fundamental distinction between what the Saints have written and what Protestants write is a category confusion which creates an opposition between the scriptures and church leadership. Scripture *is* the primary source and norm of the theological enterprise of the Church. That is all the patristic sources admit. A second principle is implied in the patristic writing that is denied by Protestants which is: the theological activity of the Church, which has Scripture as its primary norm and source, is governed by Church authority. The category confusion on the part of Protestants is that, since Scripture is ontologically primary to Church authority it is therefore against Church authority. This is a simple category confusion: scripture and the episcopacy are different kinds of authority, which are not opposed.”-Nathaniel McCallum
