- Nothing can be proved or disproved absolutely.
- Of all texts or sets of words, a Christian should privilege the Bible, taken
as a contextual whole, as highly as possible. This involves trusting that the Bible's contents
should be paid the most attention to and trusted more than any other text or set of words, while being sensitive to the different forms of truth these
contents may be presented in. This priveliging also involves trusting that the Bible is the only text or set of words that should be
trusted in this way.
- Because the Bible
doesn't present itself as the main subject of focus, but refers instead
to other subjects, the Bible is not to be trusted for absolutely
anything, but only in what its words can communicate.
is the one the Bible most focusses attention on: a Christian can trust
that the Bible therefore indicates what subject needs to be priveliged the most.
- A Christian should put the highest trust in God for anything and everything - including God's omnisicience, comprehensive providence, and assembly of the Bible - out of trust that this should be done. This highest trust also involves trusting that God is the only one who should be trusted in this way.
