Westminster Confession on Scripture

Friday, March 9, 2018
    But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.
    —1 John 2:20 (NIV)
    We may be moved and induced by the testimony of the Church to a high and reverend esteem of the Holy Scripture, and the heavenliness of the matter, the efficacy of the doctrine, the majesty of the style, the consent of all the parts, the scope of the whole (which is to give all glory to God), the full discovery it makes of the only way of man’s salvation, the many other incomparable excellencies, and the entire perfection thereof, are arguments whereby it doth abundantly evidence itself to be the word of God; yet, notwithstanding, our full persuasion and assurance of the infallible truth, and divine authority thereof, is from the inward work of the Holy Spirit, bearing witness by and with the Word in our hearts.
    ... The Westminster Confession of Faith [1646], Introduction & Notes by John Macpherson, Edinburgh: T. & T. Clark, 1881, chapter 1, article V (see the book)
    See also 1 John 2:20; Isa. 59:21; John 16:13,14; 1 Cor. 2:10-12; 1 Tim. 3:15; 1 John 2:27
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, the testimony of Your Spirit leads me into truth.
