Scripture: Accepting What It Teaches

Acceptance of all that Scripture teaches, and refusal either to add to it or subtract from it in our thinking about God, is necessary because believers, to whom the Spirit interprets the Scriptures, are nonetheless less still prone to lapse intellectually into the world’s ways of thinking, just as sometimes they lapse morally into the world’s ways of behaving, and so they need constant critical correction and redirection by the Word of God.
