Second Helvetic Confession: No More Special Revelation

Wherefore when this Word of God is now preached in the church by preachers lawfully called, we believe that the very Word of God is proclaimed, and received by the faithful; and that neither any other Word of God is to be invented nor is to be expected from heaven: and that now the Word itself which is preached is to be regarded, not the minister that preaches; for even if he be evil and a sinner, nevertheless the Word of God remains still true and good.

Heinrich Bullinger Second Helvetic Confession (1566), chapter 1.

  1. Amen and amen. Praying fervently that the beloved will not be deceived by a false “Jesus Calling”.

  2. Again, another clear statement from the past how scripture is the final authority of our faith and practice. Thank you for keeping the men of old alive by they creeds and confessions of the church. SDG
