Art. 23. Affermiamo la chiarezza della Scrittura, in particolare per ciò che concerne il suo messaggio di salvezza. Respingiamo l’idea secondo la quale tutti i passaggi della Scrittura posseggano la medesima chiarezza o siano testimoni allo stesso grado della dottrina della redenzione.


Traditionally this teaching is called the "perspicuity" of Scripture. By this is meant that the central message of Scripture is clear, especially what the Bible says about salvation from sin.

The Denial disassociates this claim from the belief that everything in Scripture is clear or that all teachings are equally clear or equally relevant to the Bible's central saving message. It is obvious to any honest interpreter that the meaning of some passages of Scripture is obscure. It is equally evident that the truth of some passages is not directly relevant to the overall plan of salvation.
