Umm..I have been there a long time and am also sola scripture. I am under the impression that we are on this page to discuss theology and therefore pursue understanding. I see much available in the early church fathers for understanding dogma. It is also goog to understand other thinking about theology so we better define our own. Scripture is set in stone, if you will. Our understanding is a growing process in which we try to organize as theology. That I can discuss within scripture and walk away while agreeing to disagree if necessary.
