Sola scriptura is an evangelical/ protestant doctrine. Can we say that this is 'essential'? And therefore, when we disagree in this doctrine, we must part our way peacefully.
What about the details within sola scriptura, e.g. inerrancy and hermeneutics? Are these essential or not?
Infallibility and its consequence, ultimate authority, of course, should be essential, and obviously divide Roman Catholicism and Protestants forever.
Limited inerrancy, will lead to liberalism, or so-called mainline Protestants today. The consequence of this belief is the fallibility of the Bible, and hence, its position as ultimate authority must be dubious. Surely this is essential?
