 Scripture in the Community of Christ   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Scripture is the indispensable witness of the saving, transforming message that God has entrusted to the church.
Scripture’s authority is derived from the model of Christ, who came to be a servant (Mark 10:45).
Scripture is vital and essential to the church, but not because it is inerrant (in the sense that every detail is historically or scientifically correct).

 Quodlibet Online Journal: Martin Luther and Scripture   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Scripture allows even the most insignificant of men to discern between truth and error: "A Christian soon smells from afar which is God's and which is human teaching.
Luther also developed his understanding of Scripture from experiential factors, as seen in the profound impact his personal conversion had upon his understanding of the role of Scripture in the believer's life and the authority it provided over matters of faith.
Scripture testified to itself in the matters of authority, the role of reason, the necessity of the Spirit in understanding, and the papal claims to exclusive interpretation.

 Sacred text - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Many religions and spiritual movements believe that their sacred texts (or scriptures) are the "Word of God", often feeling that the texts are wholly divine or spiritually inspired in origin.
Even non-believers often capitalize the names of sacred scriptures as a mark of respect or tradition.
References to scriptures profit from standardisation: the Guru Granth Sahib (of Sikhism) always appears with standardised page numbering while the Abrahamic religions and their offshoots appear to favour chapter and verse pointers.

Scripture is also perceived in some sense as heavenly in origin—the Qur'an and the Book of Mormon are good examples of this.
The role of scripture in the life of the community involves its public recitation or reading at worship, its veneration as a cult object, and its citation in public prayer and in prescribing appropriate rituals.

 This is Life!: Revolutions Around the Cruciform Axis: Scripture Archives
Scripture means what the Church, the apostolic community, says it means, not because the Church is the official institution of the religion, nor because the Church wrote the Scriptures, but because the one divine mind of Christ permeates all, the Church, the Scriptures and the Tradition.
Christian Scriptures, on the other hand, though handled with reverence and fidelity, and though focused attention was given to the faithful transmission of the actual text, were nonetheless not handled with the same sort of scrupulosity.
The Christian Scriptures are rich with varying text-type traditions, and the Christian Old Testament varies in the translation methods of the various Hebrew and Aramaic (in most cases) originals from quite loose paraphrase to wooden word-for-word translation.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Scripture
It fails to establish that certain portions of Scripture are inspired writings, e.g., the genealogical tables, and the summary accounts of the kings of Juda, while it favours the inspiration of several post-Apostolic works, e.g., of the "Imitation of Christ", and of the "Epistles" of St. Ignatius Martyr.
Since Scripture is the written word of God, its contents are Divinely guaranteed truths, revealed either in the strict or the wider sense of the word.
While the private handling of Scripture is opposed to the fact that it is common property, its administrators are bound to communicate its contents to all the members of the Church.

 Christ on Scripture
Some cast doubt on the authority of Scripture by claiming that significant portions of the Old Testament Scriptures are the combined efforts of many different editors who over the centuries added their own perspectives and themes to the evolving texts.
Scripture itself instructs Christians to be "ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you" (I Peter 3:15).
In this we will see that Scripture is a great deal more than simply inerrant; it is alive and powerful so as to be the ultimate authority, even to the point of binding the actions of the one who has control over creation and time.

 Scripture Interpretation and the Individual   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Although the scriptures obviously don't teach that a hierarchy is needed for their interpretation, many people find it appealing to let a religious hierarchy tell them what the Bible teaches rather than reading and learning from the Bible themselves.
However, while some passages of scripture are difficult to understand (2 Peter 3:16), and there have been difficulties with illiteracy and copying the scriptures before the invention of the printing press, these problems don't refute sola scriptura and the practice of personal interpretation.
In other words, the scriptures are the only apostolic material we have today, and no group has the authority to infallibly interpret them for everybody else, regardless of how much access people have had to the scriptures in previous centuries.

 Scripture Memory   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
I was truly saddened to hear of the low level of participation in Scripture memory by children and the almost non-existent level of participation by adults in something as valuable as Scripture memory.
This isnít to say the church should not be involved in teaching Scripture memory, but it is the ìjobî and joy of parents and individuals to memorize Scripture and teach their children to do the same.
Perhaps your church recognizes the need to develop a Scripture memory plan that is real, so developing a goal and implementing a plan to involve the children and adults in real Scripture memory is something you should be able to go ahead with.

 "Scripture" by John Jewel (1522-1577)
Jewel’s essay on the Scriptures explains first the divine origin of the Bible and its power to change man’s heart; then, the pleasure the Word of God gives to the believer; and finally, the reverence to be accorded God’s Word.
The cause why you are so deceived, is because you know not the Scriptures; you have hated the light, and loved darkness; you have neither known the Father nor me. He that knoweth not the truth of God, knoweth not God.
Augustine saith, “Almighty God, in the Scriptures, speaketh as a familiar friend, without dissimulation, unto the hearts both of the learned and of the unlearned.” He abaseth himself, and speaketh to their capacity; for his will is, that all should come to the knowledge of the truth, and be saved.

Knowledge of the totality of Scripture is essential to understanding both the whole and the part.
Scripture contains history and prophecy, poetry and wise sayings, parable and allegory—to mention some of the variety—and through all such means God declares His word and truth.
The Westminster Confession of Faith puts it thus: "The infallible rule of interpretation of Scripture is the Scripture itself; and therefore, when there is a question about the true and full sense of any Scripture (which is not manifold, but one), it must be searched and known by other places that speak more clearly" (Chap.

 Scripture and Tradition
The true "rule of faith"—as expressed in the Bible itself—is Scripture plus apostolic tradition, as manifested in the living teaching authority of the Catholic Church, to which were entrusted the oral teachings of Jesus and the apostles, along with the authority to interpret Scripture correctly.
For sacred Scripture is the word of God inasmuch as it is consigned to writing under the inspiration of the divine Spirit.
Consequently it is not from sacred Scripture alone that the Church draws her certainty about everything which has been revealed.

The Hindu scriptures demonstrate high philosophical and esthetic achievement, easily rivaling the output of the ancient Greeks.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saintshas no uniform position on the classical issues of epistemology, such as the relationship of the sources of knowledge, theories of truth, and modes of verification, but the superiority of knowing by revelation from God is commonly cited from the scriptures.
