Chapter 1: Of the Holy Scripture

 

1. The light of nature and the works of creation and providence so clearly display the goodness, wisdom, and power of God that they leave men inexcusable.a However, they are not sufficient to give that knowledge of God and of His will that is necessary for salvation.b Therefore it pleased the Lord, at various times, and in different ways, to reveal Himself and to declare His will to His Church.[1], c Afterward, He was pleased to commit this revelation entirely into writing:

·       For the better preservation and propagation of the truth

·       For the more sure establishment and comfort of the Church against:

o      The corruption of the flesh[2]

o      The malice of Satan

o      The world[3], d

This makes the Holy Scripture absolutely necessarye because those former ways of God’s revealing His will to His people have now ceased.f

3. The books commonly called Apocrypha,[5] not being of divine inspiration, are no part of the canon[6] of Scripture, and therefore are of no authority in the Church of God. They are to be no more approved or made use of than any other human writings.

4. The authority of the Holy Scripture, for which it ought to be believed and obeyed, does not depend upon the testimony of any man or church, but solely upon God (who is truth itself), the author of Scripture. Therefore it is to be received because it is the Word of God.

5. We may be moved and induced by the testimony of the Church to a high and reverent esteem of the Holy Scripture.a And the heavenliness of the matter, the efficacy[7] of the doctrine,[8] the majesty of the style, the consistency of all the parts, the intent of the whole (which is to give all glory to God), the full revelation it makes of the only way of man’s salvation, the many other incomparable excellencies, and the entire perfection of Scripture—these are arguments by which it abundantly evidences [shows] itself to be the Word of God. Yet nonetheless, our full persuasion and assurance of the infallible truth and divine authority of Scripture is from the inward work of the Holy Spirit bearing witness by and with the Word in our hearts.b

6. The whole counsel of God, concerning all things necessary for His own glory and man’s salvation, faith, and life, is either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence[9] may be deduced from Scripture. Nothing at any time is to be added to this whole counsel of God, whether by new revelations of the Spirit or traditions of men.a 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.b Also, 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.c

7. All things in Scripture are not equally plain in themselves nor equally clear to all.a Yet those things that are necessary to be known, believed, and observed for salvation are quite clearly propounded[11] and opened in some place of Scripture or another. Thus, not only the learned, but the unlearned, by a due use of ordinary means, may attain to a sufficient understanding of them.b

8. The Old Testament was written in Hebrew, the native language of the people of God of old. The New Testament was written in Greek, which, at the time of the writing of it, was most generally known to the nations. These, being directly inspired by God, and by His singular care and providence kept pure in all ages, are therefore authentic.a Thus, in all controversies of religion the Church is to appeal to them as the ultimate authority.b But because these original tongues are not known to all the people of God, who:

·       Have a right to, and a valid claim to have, the Scriptures

·       Are commanded, in the fear of God, to read and search themc

Therefore they are to be translated into the common language[s] of every nation into which they come,d so that, the Word of God dwelling plentifully in all, they:

·       May worship Him in an acceptable mannere

·       May have hope through patience and the comfort of the Scripturesf

6Now, brothers, if I come to you speaking in tongues, how will I benefit you unless I bring you some revelation or knowledge or prophecy or teaching?

9So with yourselves, if with your tongue you utter speech that is not intelligible, how will anyone know what is said? For you will be speaking into the air.

11but if I do not know the meaning of the language, I will be a foreigner to the speaker and the speaker a foreigner to me. 12So with yourselves, since you are eager for manifestations of the Spirit, strive to excel in building up the church.

24But if all prophesy, and an unbeliever or outsider enters, he is convicted by all, he is called to account by all,

27If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret. 28But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God.

[1] When the WCF uses Church (capitalized), it refers to the whole body of believers in Jesus Christ, His bride.

[2] Scripture uses flesh in many ways and space prohibits a full exposition herein. As used in “the corruption of the flesh,” it refers to man as a whole creature (body, mind, will, and soul) who, in all parts, is sinful and fallen from holiness. Thus, the flesh is a source of temptation to sin, and is often set in contrast to the Holy Spirit, who indwells believers in Jesus Christ.

[3] the world: anything on earth that is against God

[4] In the context of the Christian religion, stated most briefly, faith is unconditional trust in Jesus Christ—a spiritual gift of God. Faith is the noun form. Believe is the verb form. More broadly, faith may include all of the consequences of this trust in Christ, including all that Christians believe, how they live out their lives, establish systems of doctrine, form churches, and so on. It is in this light that we may speak of the Christian Faith.

[5] Examples of apocrypha include: 1, 2, 3, 4 Esdras, Tobit, Judith, Esther chapter 10 past verse 3 (canonical Esther ends with verse 3), Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus (Sirach) (not to be confused with canonical Ecclesiastes), Baruch, Epistle of Jeremy, Song of the Three Children, Story of Susanna, The Idol Bel and the Dragon, Prayer of Manassas, 1, 2, 3, 4 Maccabees, and many others.

[6] canon: the collection of the inspired books of the Bible

[7] efficacy: completely effective in accomplishing a particular result

[8] doctrine: teaching, whether simple or complex

[9] “Good and necessary consequence” means not only that the conclusion may be deduced from the premises but that, given the premises of the argument, the conclusion cannot possibly be false.
