Ep. 5 Scripture A-what??
In todays slightly delayed episode, Adam and Brian begin to discuss the oft debated topic of what role scripture has in the life of the believer. Feel free to find us on twitter and leave a comment on the show. And if you don't mind, take  moment to rate and review us on your podcast app of choice!  *Show Note So Adam kept saying "sole" (pronounced like what's on the bottom of one's shoe) scriptura as one of the protestant perspectives he was trying to explain. However, the position he was trying to describe is more correctly pronounced, "solo" scriptura (as in the swashbuckling intergalactic space pirate many are familiar with).
