Responses to Protestant Apologists on Sola Scriptura

By Fr. John Whiteford


The links below are to responses I have written over the years to Protestants who have objected to the thesis of my article on Sola Scriptura.  By their nature, they lack the polish of conventional essays or articles, but I post them here because over the years I have found these discussions to be repetitious, and so in order to avoid the need to cover the same ground over and over again, I decided to organize them into the format presented here.  I have also included some links to other online articles that are relevant.
