"Whatsoever things were written aforetime, were written for our learning, so that we through patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope…. So that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost….and the preaching…of the mystery which was kept secret since the World began but…by the Scriptures is now being made known to all nations for faithful obedience." Romans 15:4 & 15:16 & 16:25-26.
"From childhood, you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise unto salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture was breathed into by God [the Spirit], and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction — so that the man of God may be…thoroughly equipped unto all good works." Second Timothy 3:15-17.
