The Westminster Confession of Faith Applied to Women
Her Full Persuasion and Assurance of Divine Authority
A woman may be moved and induced by the testimony of the Church to an high and reverent esteem of the holy Scripture;
1 Tim 3:15
the heavenliness of the matter,
the efficacy of the doctrine,
the majesty of the style,
the consent of all the parts,
the scope of the whole (which is to give all glory to God), the full discovery it makes of the only way of woman’s salvation,
the many other incomparable excellencies, and the entire perfection thereof,
… are arguments whereby it doth abundantly evidence itself to be the Word of God; yet, notwithstanding, her full persuasion and assurance of the infallible truth, and divine authority thereof, is from the inward work of the Holy Spirit, bearing witness by and with the Word in her hearts.
Isa 59:21; John 16:13-14; 1 Cor 2:10-12; 1 John 2:20, 27
