“Where Is That in the Bible?”
Fundamentalists — and many other Protestants — use this question all the time, particularly when they’re dealing with Catholics. When they are being trained how to talk with Catholics, Fundamentalist evangelizers are taught to use this question. They see it as the “master key” to defeating Catholics.
Too often, it’s just that. Countless Catholics are absolutely stumped by the question and don’t know what to say in response. This is a very important principle in Protestant thought. It’s the idea that we should do our theology “by Scripture alone.” It even has a fancy Latin name — “sola scriptura.”
