Sufficiency of Scripture
Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary (MABTS) leadership was frequently approached during 2019 by concerned students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends regarding current trends. Their questions are about debates, decisions, terms, and biblical interpretations currently ongoing within American churches and the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). The following documents are part of the MABTS Sufficiency of Scripture Series. The series is written and released by MABTS to provide clarity and a broader perspective to the Mid-America family regarding many of the key debates. Each document is intentionally concise and is not meant to be an exhaustive resource. Included in each issue are references which will aid further study. The goal of the series is three-fold: Challenge Christians to utilize the Scriptures as their guide in any debate, encourage trust in God’s Word for all areas of faith and practice, and strengthen the faith of the Mid-America family. Volume one of the MABTS Sufficiency of Scripture Series includes four issues focusing on:
