 The Principles of Theology - Article 8

by W.H.Griffith Thomas

ARTICLE 8

<< The Acceptance of The Creeds

Part 3. The Ground Of Acceptance Of The Creeds

This thorough reception and belief is based upon agreement with Scripture. “For they may be proved by most certain warrants of Holy Scripture.” It is not therefore the universality of their usage, though that is important, or their antiquity, which is equally noteworthy, but their Scripturalness. This is the basis of their acceptance in the Church, and the Article thereby subordinates the Creed to the principle laid down in Article 6. Creeds are no exception to this requirement of the sufficiency, supremacy, and finality of Holy Scripture.
