《西敏信条教牧简释1.9》

解释圣经的无误原则 1.9 解释圣经无误原则,就是圣经本身[1];因此,当我们对圣经某处真实和完全的意义发生疑问时(该意义只有一个,不是多种),就当查考其它更清楚经文来加以解明1。 [1]  即以经解经。 1彼后1:20,21;徒15:15-16

《西敏信条教牧简释1.8》

圣经的默示性 1.8a希伯来文(古时上帝选民的文字)旧约,和希腊文(新约时代各国最通用的文字)新约,都是上帝直接默示的,并且其纯正因上帝特别看顾和护理而在历代得以保守,所以它们是真实可信的1; 1太5:18 1.8b因此,一切有关宗教的辩论,教会最终都当诉诸圣经2。 2赛8:20;徒15:15;约5:39,46 1.8c但因这些原文并非为上帝的众民所通晓,而他们都有权利拥有圣经,并从中得益,而且上帝也吩咐他们存敬畏的心去诵读查考3,所以,圣经所到之处,都应译成当地民族的通俗语言4,使上帝的圣言充充满满地寓于各地选民心中,他们就可以用上帝所悦纳的方式去敬拜祂5,并可以因圣经所赐的忍耐和安慰得着盼望6。 3约5:39;4林前14:6,9,11,12,24,27,28;5西3:16;6罗15:4

《西敏信条教牧简释1.7》

圣经的明了性 1.7 圣经中所记各事本身并不都是一样明显,对各人也不都是一样清楚;然而为得救所必须知道、相信并遵行的事,在圣经此处或彼处已明载而详论,以致不仅有学识的,而且无学识的,只要正当使用通常的蒙恩之道,便都可以有充分的理解1。 1彼后3:16;诗119:105,130

WCF 1.6 — Pastoral Comments

1.6 The whole counsel of God concerning all things necessary for His own glory, mans salvation, faith and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced […]
