We cherish the solas of the Lutheran Reformation. Each one stems from anardor to uphold Holy Scripture as the sole source of doctrine (Sola Scriptura). Yet how many of the "sects" subcribe to the same ideal, even while failing to rightly divide the Word of Truth. In my own fairly conservative church I perceive a subtle surrendering of the Lutheran distinctives, an uncoupling from the Book of Concord that de-emphasizes Sacramental core of worship and discards key doctrines dear to the Reformers.
In the words of Francis Pieper, "Only dogmatics is edifying". As the walls of orthodoxy crumble around us can we consider another Sola? Perhaps Sola Dogmata?
