The Bible has the highest authority.
The important theological basis of the Reformation Movement was the authority of the Bible, and the principle of "Bible supremacy" was adhered to by Luther. In the late Middle Ages, the Roman Church believed that the Bible and tradition were inspirations from the dual sources of God. They went hand in hand and did not conflict with each other. The Church not only preserves the truth of the Bible, has the power to teach, but also establishes the canon of the Bible; therefore, the status of the Church is above the Bible. These propositions are exactly what Luther wanted to refute. He pointed out that the authority of the Bible was not derived from the Church; on the contrary, the status of the Church was determined by the Bible. Although the Church has historically formulated the canon of the Bible, it only recognizes its inherent value, not establishes the authority of the Bible. "People believe in the gospel, not because the church determines the authenticity of the gospel, but because the gospel is the word of God." The Word of God is the ultimate basis for the establishment of the canon. All godfather's teachings and church doctrines bear witness to the Bible, just as John Baptist's job is to bring people back to Christ.
At the same time, it should be noted that Luther did not abandon all the traditions of the past churches. He opposed only those traditions that were contrary to the clear teachings of the Bible. He also tried to prove the inherent consistency between the Bible and tradition, but in Luther's view, the position of the Bible is still higher than tradition. The Bible is the touchstone and the norm of norms.
