Calvin's Institutes. Book I, Chapter 9

This is the post #9 of the Calvin's Institutes summary series.

Those who forsake Scripture and claim to have another direct revelation from the Holy Spirit are wrong for Scripture is born from the Holy Spirit and He, being God Himself, does not contradict what He had already revealed in Scripture. Instead, all believers recognise the Holy Spirit speaking in the Scripture as they are led to Christ when they read it, and they are driven back to Scripture when the Spirit works in them. The Holy Spirit and the Word are "joined" together in this way.
