1. The Holy Scriptures
1.The Holy Scripture is the only sufficient, certain, and infallible rule of all savingknowledge, faith, and obedience.
II Timothy3:16
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
II Timothy3:17
That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all goodworks.Although the light of nature and the works of creation and providence manifestthe goodness, wisdom, and power of God so much that man is left without anyexcuse, they are not sufficient to provide that knowledge of God and His willwhich is necessary for salvation.
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.
Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.
There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.
Men are without excuse:
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness andunrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hathshowed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power andGodhead; so that they are without excuse:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither werethankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart wasdarkened.
The law written on our hearts:
For when the Gentiles, which have not the law, do by nature the thingscontained in the law, these, having not the law, are a law unto themselves:
Which show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean while accusing or else excusing
one another;)
In the day when God shall judge the secrets of men by Jesus Christ accordingto my gospel.Therefore it pleased the Lord at sundry times and in divers manners to revealHimself, and to declare His will to His church;
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto thefathers by the prophets,
Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, andupholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purgedour sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtaineda more excellent name than they.(Sundry)
(pol-oo-mer'-oce);Word Origin: Greek, Adverb, Strong #: 41811.by many portions, by many times and in many ways(Divers)
manners: 4187πολυτρ
(pol-oot-rop'-oce);Word Origin: Greek, Adverb, Strong #: 41871.in many manners- and afterward, for the better preserving and propagating of the truth, and for themore sure establishment and comfort of the church, protecting it against thecorruption of the flesh and the malice of Satan and the world,- it pleased the Lord to commit His revealed Truth wholly to writing. Thereforethe Holy Scriptures are most necessary, those former ways by which Godrevealed His will unto His people having now ceased.
Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart
