Liturgical and Sacramental

The Liturgical and Sacramental stream of the Church emphasizes God’s revelation of the Word in creation (via symbol and sacrament). When this is done by highlighting the function of symbol while maintaining the equal ultimacy of the revelation of the Word via Scripture and the Spirit, this builds up the Church as a communion. But when symbol is made the only authority or a more ultimate authority than the revelation of the Word through Scripture and the Spirit, and is autonomously used therefore to interpret all things according to a Two-Source View of authority, as with “Solo” Scriptura and Qualified Infallibility, this tears down the Church through the dynamic of denominationalism.
