The Holy Spirit and the Calvinistic Westminster Confession

"Nevertheless, we acknowledge the inward illumination of the Spirit of God to be necessary for the saving understanding of such things as are revealed in the Word." W.C.F. 1:6. Too, "the Old Testament in Hebrew" and "the New Testament in Greek…are to be translated into the vulgar [or common] language of every nation unto which they come…. I Cor. 14:6,9,11,12,24,27,28." W.C.F. 1:8.

Clearly, the above W.C.F. 1:8(u) insists on a truly-linguistic view of, and precludes any other (glossolalic-ecstatic!) notion about, I Cor. 14:6-28. Indeed, "the infallible rule of interpretation of Scripture, is the Scripture itself." W.C.F. 1:9. Consequently, "the Supreme Judge by Which all controversies of religion are to be determined…, can be no other but the Holy Spirit speaking in the Scripture!" W.C.F. 1:10.
