|Mercy Street Church of Christ
It is by receiving the illumination of the Spirit, by using
our own reason and by listening to the teaching of others
in the church that we grow in our understanding of
Scripture. I am anxious not to be misunderstood. I am
emphatically not saying that Scripture, reason and
tradition are a threefold authority of equal importance by
which we come to know God's truth. No. Scripture alone is
God's Word written, and the Holy Spirit its ultimate
interpreter. The place of the individual's reason and of
the church's tradition lies in the elucidation and
application of Scripture. But both are subordinate to God
himself as he speaks to us through his word.
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
