“The foundation of the certainty of our knowledge of the canon is based upon God’s purposes in giving Scripture, not upon the alleged authority of any ecclesiastical body.” (Page 107)

“Once we realize that it is Scripture, not man’s knowledge of the canon, that is inspired, and that canon1 exists perfectly in God’s mind, we can see that the clarity and knowledge of canon2 is dependent not upon human beings, councils, churches, or anything else in this world, but instead upon God’s purposes in giving us the inspired Scriptures in the first place.” (Page 103)

“Without the act of inspiration (revelation), there would be no canon.” (Page 101)

“There is no reason to learn divine truths if we do not apply them in our hearts and minds, live them out daily, and defend them in the public square when we are given the opportunity to glorify God in so doing.” (Page 15)

“Sola scriptura literally means ‘Scripture alone.’ Unfortunately, this phrase tends to be taken in the vein of ‘Scripture in isolation, Scripture outside of the rest of God’s work in the church.’1 That is not its intended meaning; again, it means ‘Scripture alone as the sole infallible rule of faith for the church.’” (Pages 27–28)
