Westminster Wednesdays

It has been a bit since I have done a blog for Westminster Wednesday, but here is it. Some solid information that shows the power of the Bible and how God allows us to use it to claim our salvation through His Son. 

Question 3: What is the Word of God?

Answer: The holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, the only rule of faith and obedience.

Question 4: How doth it appear that the Scriptures are the Word of God?

Answer: The Scripture manifest themselves to be the Word of God, by their majesty and purity; by the consent of all the parts, and the scope of the whole, which is to give all glory to God; by their light and power to convince and convert sinners, to comfort and build up believers into salvation: but the Spirit of God bearing witness by and with the Scriptures in the heart of man, is alone able fully to persuade it that they are the very Word of God.
