The Bible Is Sufficient

The sufficiency of Scripture simply means that the Bible is what we need to obey God. We can know who God is, how he saved us, and how he expects us to behave all from the Bible.

The Sufficiency of Scripture

means that Scripture contained all the words of God he intended his people to have at each stage of redemptive history, and that it now contains all the words of God we need for salvation, for trusting him perfectly, and for obeying him perfectly.

The Word

by Sara Groves

2 Timothy 3:16-17 ESV

All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

What Does the Bible Claim to Be?

by Steven Lawson


When we are facing a problem of genuine importance to our Christian life,
we can approach Scripture
with the confidence that from it God will provide us with guidance for that problem.

What Does The Bible Mean to Tell Us?

by Kevin DeYoung from his book, “Taking God at His Word”

Scripture doesn’t tell us everything we may want to know about everything. But it tells us everything we need to know about the most important things. It gives us something the Internet, with all its terabytes of information, never could: wisdom. The purpose of the Holy Scripture is not ultimately to make you smart, or make you relevant, or make you rich, or get you a job, or get you married, or take all your problems away, or tell you where to live. The aim is that you might be wise enough to put your faith in Christ and be saved.

The Sufficiency of Scripture

Does the Bible Give Us Answers to Every Question?

by Steve Ham at Answers in Genesis

God’s Word never promises to answer every human question, but it does promise to be the basis of truth for understanding all things (Psalm 86:11; Proverbs 30:5; John 1:14; John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16). That includes history and science, as well as doctrine. 

When we base our thinking on God’s authoritative Word, we can confidently answer questions about our world and our life. The question is not whether we can answer every question but whether the Bible is trustworthy in all that it teaches—and it is. Often we underestimate the direct answers we do have in Scripture.

The Authority, Sufficiency, and Finality of Scripture

by Sinclair Ferguson at Monergism

Deuteronomy 4:2 NLT

Do not add to or subtract from these commands I am giving you. Just obey the commands of the Lord your God that I am giving you.

Colossians 2:6-8 NLT

And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.

Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.
