There are either too many possible answers, or good answers would be too long for this format. Please add details to narrow the answer set or to isolate an issue that can be answered in a few paragraphs.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Welcome to C.SE. Is it possible for you to narrow this down a little bit? There have literally been volumes spilled on the pair of subjects you raise here. Is there something specific with respect to this concept you'd like to know more about? – wax eagle Jul 19 '13 at 19:02
Also, hasn't the core question here (basis for sola scriptura) been addressed at least once here? – svidgen Jul 19 '13 at 19:04
I tried searching for relevant questions with no luck. Can you point me in the right direction? A good answer to this question would be a reference and synopsis of said "volumes spilled on the pair of subjects" I raised. – user5154 Jul 19 '13 at 19:04
Here's one that addresses it at a slightly different angle: By what mechanism could the Bible be inerrant? – Zetta Suro Jul 19 '13 at 19:07
Aha! "Innerancy" that's the term I needed to search for. Thanks @ZettaSuro! This definitely helped. – user5154 Jul 19 '13 at 19:22
