I need to start catching up with last week’s studies. As we continue with Question 2, remember to pay close attention to all the words in the answer. And it may be worthwhile to try to think about how you would answer the question yourself first before reading the actual way the Westminster Writers answer it.
Having defined Man’s chief and highest end is to glorify God, we next begin to address how we know and what we know about about God and His Word. The answers are not always what we would think.
Q. 2. How doth it appear that there is a God?
A. The very light of nature in man, and the works of God, declare plainly that there is a God; but his word and Spirit only do sufficiently and effectually reveal him unto men for their salvation.
A good verse in support is:
2 Timothy 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
The teaching about the critical tag team role of the Bible and the Holy Spirit in our salvation is so clear.
