第一章 圣经

第一章 聖經 1. 雖然自然之光,創造與治理奇工,都向人顯明上帝的良善、智慧與權能,叫人無法推搪,1可是這一切不足以令人深入認識上帝和他的旨意,而最終得到拯救。2因此,上帝樂意在不同的歷史時刻,用不同的方式啟示自己,並向教會宣明他的旨意。3之後,為了更好地保存和傳揚真理,並為了更有效地鞏固和安慰教會,以防範肉體的軟弱,及對抗撒但和世界的惡毒攻擊,便把這些啟示書寫成文字。4由此可見,聖經是非常重要的,5而上帝亦已停止使用以往直接向他子民啟示自己的方法。6   2. 聖經─即上帝的話語─包括舊約及新約,書卷的名稱如下: 舊約 創世記   出埃及記   利未記   民數記   申命記     約書亞記    士師記    路得記 撒母耳記上   撒母耳記下    列王紀上   列王紀下 歷代志上   歷代志下   以斯拉記   尼希米記   以斯帖記   約伯記   詩篇   箴言   傳道書   雅歌    以賽亞書   耶利米書    耶利米哀歌 以西結書   但以理書   何西阿書  約珥書   阿摩司書   俄巴底亞書   約拿書   彌迦書    那鴻書    哈巴谷書  西番雅書   哈該書 撒迦利亞書   瑪拉基書 […]

Chapter 1 Of the Holy Scripture

I. Although the light of nature, and the works of creation and providence do so far manifest the goodness, wisdom, and power of God, as to leave men unexcusable;[1] yet are they not sufficient to give that knowledge of God, and of His will, which is necessary unto salvation.[2] Therefore it pleased the Lord, at […]

Chapter 3 Of God’s Eternal Decree

I.

By this sin they fell from their original righteousness and communion, […]

Chapter 7 Of God’s Covenant with Man

I. The distance between God and the creature is so great, that although reasonable creatures do owe obedience unto Him as their Creator, yet they could never have any fruition of Him as their blessedness and reward, but by some voluntary condescension on God’s part, which He has been pleased to express by way of […]

Chapter 9 Of Free Will

Man, in his state of innocency, had freedom, and power to will and to do that which was good and well pleasing to God;[2] but yet, mutably, […]
