Q.3. What do the Scriptures principally teach?
- The Scriptures principally teach what man is to believe concerning god, and what duty God requires of man.
Principally. – Chiefly, above all other things.
Duty. –Something which God requires of us, and which we are bound to perform.
By this answer we are informed that the Scriptures principally teach us two things:
1.What we are to believe concerning God. —2 Tim i. 13. Hold fast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love, which is in Christ Jesus.
- What duty God requires of man. —Psal. cxix. 105. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.
