The Westminster Confession of Faith
Chapter IOf the Holy Scripture
I.Although the light of nature, and the works of creation andprovidence do so far manifest the goodness, wisdom, and power of God,as to leave men unexcusable;

Therefore it pleased the Lord, at sundry times, and in divers manners, toreveal Himself, and to declare that His will unto His Church;

 also bearing witness, and their thoughts the mean whileaccusing or else excusing one another; 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifestin them; for God hath shewed it unto them. 20 For the invisible things of him from the creation ofthe world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal powerand Godhead; so that they are without excuse. PSA 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God;and the firmament sheweth his handiwork. 2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto nightsheweth knowledge. 3 There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. ROM 1:32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death,not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. 2:1 Therefore thou art inexcusable,O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnestthyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

 1CO 1:21 For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleasedGod by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. 2:13 Which things also we speak,not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparingspiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit ofGod: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spirituallydiscerned.

 PRO 22:19 That thy trust may be in the Lord, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.20 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge, 21 That I might makethee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth tothem that send unto thee? LUK 1:3 It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understandingof all things from the very first, to write unto thee in order, most excellent Theophilus, 4 Thatthou mightest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed. ROM 15:4For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we throughpatience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope. MAT 4:4 But he answered and said, It iswritten, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouthof God. 7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. 10 Thensaith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thyGod, and him only shalt thou serve. ISA 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto themthat have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seekunto their God? for the living to the dead? 20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak notaccording to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

 2TI 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to makethee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 2PE 1:19 We have also a moresure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in adark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts.

 HEB 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathersby the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointedheir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds.

 LUK 16:29 Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. 31And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded,though one rose from the dead. EPH 2:20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles andprophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone. REV 22:18 For I testify unto everyman that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things,God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: 19 And if any man shall takeaway from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the bookof life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. 2TI 3:16 Allscripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction,for instruction in righteousness.
