'''''Sola scriptura''''' ([[Latin]]: "by Scripture alone") is the doctrine that all teachings concerning [[faith]] and life that are necessary for [[salvation]] are taught in the [[Bible]] and nowhere else; or, alternatively, it is also called a guiding [[Lutheran]] principle that the [[Bible]] is the benchmark for all things and through it all things are judged.<ref name="Beeskow2006">{{cite book |title=Paul Gerhardt 1607 - 1676 An Illustrated Biography |author=Hans-Joachim Beeskow |publisher=Heimat-Verlag Lübben |place=Lübben |year=2006 |pages=99 |isbn=3-929600-33-1 |url= |quote=}}</ref> It does not mean that everything that is true is addressed in the Bible or that the Bible is written clearly enough for every believer to find and understand all that is contained therein equally as well as every other believer.
It ==Pillar of the Protestant Reformation== The doctrinal principle of ''sola scriptura'' was a pillar of the [[Protestant Reformation]], which rejected [[Roman Catholicism]]'s claim that ''Tradition'' has as much authority within the Church as the [[Bible]]. The view is strongest among Evangelical and fundamentalist Christian denominations, and also to a great extent among Pentecostal denominations.
