Weakness of understanding

The WCF acknowledges the reality that Ministers have differing degrees of ability in their understanding of scripture.  Not everybody has a full, or indeed, a nearly full, grasp of the scriptures.  This means that there has to be some leeway given to Ministers of the Gospel doctrinally.  The essentials of soteriology, the sacraments, and the Trinity must be in place, but on many other issues freedom must be granted.

One thought on “Weakness of understanding

  1. I couldn’t agree more. If the minister is grounded in the essentials of the delivered faith then freedom of conscience, with due right handling of the Scriptures, is to be encouraged, dare I say expected. I hope you and yours are well brother.
