That the New Testament Scriptures stand alone as the source material of the Christian Way is very widely recognized. As to the final authority of this literature, however, there are two widely divergent schools, the Roman Catholic and the Protestant. The former places authority in the Church militant, while the latter clings to the maxim of Chillingworth, "The Bible is the religion of Protestants".
