In debating a sola scriptura Christian theist, is it a good idea to disprove sola scriptura?
Here's a question that I've been pondering:
For the most part, the Christian theists I encounter and with whom I debate fall into two main categories. They are either sola scriptura (Bible Only) Protestants, born-again, evangelical/fundamentalist types; or they are Catholics (who tend to make church tradition as important as the Bible in establishing what is true and not true). This question pertains primarily to the sola scriptura Protestants.
When debating them, does it seem like a good idea to attack the logical holes in Sola Scriptura as a doctrinal concept or is this more of a distraction from the contra-theism argument?
