Sola Scriptura

There are many problems with the notion of sola scriptura. Firstly, there is nothing biblical about it. Nowhere does the bible state that it is the bible alone that is our source for our knowledge regarding God. Another problem is that the "bible alone" argument does not tell us whose interpretation of scripture is correct. One only has to see the multitude of denominations to realize there is a problem. All interpretations can not be right. How to know? We must remember the bible did not just fall from the sky. The canon of the New Testament was a later development. The canon was set by the Church's authority. To disagree is to be ignorant of history.
