Sufficiency of Scripture – refers to the fact that all that God wants of us in respect to salvation and the Christian life and ministry, God has revealed in His Word, and it is sufficient for all that we need. This was one of the key points of the Reformation, and they referred to it as Sola Escritura.

This doctrine affirms the unique position of the Holy Scripture (only the 66 recognized books of the Bible, New Testament and Old Testament) as occupying the position of authority on all matters of faith and practice. This refutes the positions of others that other writings such as the Apocrypha (Catholic), book of Mormon, writings of Mary Eddy Baker (Seventh Day Adventism), or the popularity of Pentecostals of “New Visions and Revelations”.

General Statement of Doctrine

This Library Listing has works about the composite nature of Scripture, the “analogy of the faith”, which means that the statements, declarations, doctrines, etc. of one part of the Bible will not conflict, refute, or in any way be contrary or against another part of Scripture. The principle here is that any interpretation or doctrine of any passage of Scripture MUST agree in spirit and letter with the rest of Scripture, or (1) the interpretation is not a correct biblical exegesis of the pasage, (2) the general held beliefs of the “other places” is incorrectly understood. In either case, no 2 contradicting interpretations can be simultaneously held.
