Going Sola...

"& the more so as the contrast between the good & the evil increases, & evil men get worse, both in their departure from the truth, & in their power to mislead others."
New Bible commentary (Third Edition) IVP

1 Tim 6:11 

Sorry if this seems a bit obscure.
Going Sola is going with Scripture. Historically this stems from the split in the church @ the time of the Reformation. But it also reflects the spiritual battles that have faced the church of God in the Old & in New Testament times & the last days (The church of all ages).

The five solas

The Five Solas are:
  1. Sola Scriptura (“Scripture alone”): The Bible alone is our highest authority.
  2. Sola Fide (“faith alone”): We are saved through faith alone in Jesus Christ.
  3. Sola Gratia (“grace alone”): We are saved by the grace of God alone.
  4. Solus Christus (“Christ alone”): Jesus Christ alone is our Lord, Savior, and King.
  5. Soli Deo Gloria (“to the glory of God alone”): We live for the glory of God alone.
