Great Article on the Perspicuity of Scripture

Brian McCrory at Bowing Down wrote a couple of great articles which are posted at the Sharper Iron; one on thanksgiving and the other on the perspicuity of Scripture. When he first posted the link on his blog to the article at the Sharper Iron, he meant to link to the article on thanksgiving, but accidentally linked to the article on the perspicuity of Scripture. That is how I found out about it. The title of the article is “Once I Was Blind; The Perspicuity of Scripture” and I think that it is a timely message for the church today, especially in light of the increasing skepticism concerning the clarity of Scripture. And I wholeheartedly agree with him, “…that the greatest theological battle to be fought in this generation is over the doctrine of perspicuity.”

Both are great articles that I hope that you will take the time to read.

Eric,
I appreciate you posting this link. There is a growing loss in the perspicuity of Scripture. I do not know how many times I have heard people say, "The Bible is hard to understand". I have come to the conclusion, though, that many who say that have not taken the time to read it, or they are not Christians, because God gives the understanding, as you read it and have the ability to understand it.
Thanks again for the link to the post.
