    • 10 Commandments are the basis for social moral code
      • The bible illustrates what moral life is not and ethic is shown through examples of real life situations
      • Morality as a covenant- we act in a way which is loving as Jesus taught i.e. the parable of the sheep and goats
    • 2 Main ideas surrounding sola scriptura
      • Pessimistic view of human reason due to The Fall of A+E human reason is corrupted by sin
      • Therefore the Bible is infallible as it is the direct word of God
    • Quotes to support sola scriptura
      • 2 Timothy 3:16- "All scripture is inspired by God, and is useful for teaching"
    • Karl Barth + Literal belief in Bible
      • Gave high value to scripture (exclusivist view)
      • Literal translation of Bible gives it  Divine status which can only be given by God
      • "If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away" Matthew 5:29
      • Human reason must be taken into account
    • Criticisms of sola scriptura
      • Taking the bible in a literal sense is dangerous as people will still interpret teachings to fit their idea of what it means
      • Many contradiction between  the OT and the NT as there is the allowance of **** and capital punishment whereas the NT promotes peace
