The Doctrine of Scripture Today

THE DOCTRINE OF SCRIPTURE TODAY

“Scripture is not a formal text book on every academic discipline, making scholarly enquiry and activity unnecessary, but it is not merely a handbook on faith and morals either. It contains what God wishes us to know and believe about all that is within its pages, such as creation and the history of mankind, and lays down the principles within which any study must be conducted. These principles cannot be disproved and the framework used can never be dispensed with. To depart from this mooring is to depart from the Word of God and to sail on the sea of free thought.” (Hywel Jones)
