Sola Scriptura Sadducees

“Sadducees, a group notorious for its refusal to acknowledge the binding validity of any religious custom not explicitly ordained in Scripture” (Oxford Study Bible, page 123), remind me of extreme evangelicals in this respect. This is ironic, because those same evangelicals talk about the Sadducees in Sunday School with an air of rejection. I don’t remember being told as a child why the Sadducees were wrong. Could it be in part because of their sola scriptura stance?

That’s a silly question. In any case, limiting the possibilities of your practice to what happens to have been written down by others who observed no such limitation is like putting hobbles on the donkey before leading it out to pasture.
