Episode 1.6: The Sufficiency of Scripture

bible_compass

Is the Bible sufficient? Is it all I need in order to know the way of salvation, the worship of God, and how to live a life of obedience? Is there a proof-text for everything? Should I expect God to speak to me in any other way? If it is sufficient, how can I know what it teaches? These are some of the important questions we answer on today’s episode. Join Nathan, Joel, Shawn, and Kyle as we discuss the sufficiency of the Bible from Westminster Confession of Faith 1.6:

The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for His own glory, man’s salvation, faith and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from Scripture: unto which nothing at any time is to be added, whether by new revelations of the Spirit, or traditions of men. Nevertheless, we acknowledge the inward illumination of the Spirit of God to be necessary for the saving understanding of such things as are revealed in the Word: and that there are some circumstances concerning the worship of God, and government of the Church, common to human actions and societies, which are to be ordered by the light of nature, and Christian prudence, according to the general rules of the Word, which are always to be observed.
