@МалъСкрылевъ I am in the Upper Room almost daily, and I will also be in the related election room as much till this process is over. Or did you mean elsewhere?

As my original bio said before I had to remove it due to the pesky 1200 character limit, I would vote for David Strattion before myself - this guy rocks! Plus... the credible Hulk avatar... outstanding.

@DavidStratton my original bio (before I had to cut it to 1200 characters), said in my 'cons' section that I'd vote for you over myself - and I wrote that before you were a candidate (or at least before I saw it) :)

This was originally over 3600 characters. The system forced me to get it under 1200. I can be quite verbose :)

comment What is the basis for not believing sola-scriptura?
But... these are the most convincing arguments I've heard. In reality, everyone holds human reason as the final authority to some extent. This is where the joy of hermeneutics begins :) But I had to jump in since the existing answers don't seem to cover the most prominent objections.

comment What is the basis for not believing sola-scriptura?
@Caleb there are indeed some non sequiturs in this argument, and it is certainly not up-to-snuff per academic standards (there is not enough time to develop each point in the depth needed - I just linked to others who do). And... I could just as easily demolish my own arguments. The main one I would stand by is that sola scriptura elevates human reason as the ultimate authority over the text (not to say that alternatives don't as well).
