From a recent article I wrote on a missing doctrine in the church today: the sufficiency of Scripture:

The Word of God makes the man of God adequate — thoroughly equipped — for every good work (2 Tim 3.17). The Bible makes the radical yet undeniably accurate claim that it sanctifies the man of God. Man does not need anything in addition to Scripture. The Bible is perfect (Ps 19.7) and the great and precious promises given by God (2 Pet 1.4) are able to become partakers of the divine nature. The doctrine that must thunder out from every pulpit is the sufficiency of the Word of God. The truth that must resonate in every discipling relationship is the sufficiency of the Word of God. The essential ingredient that must gloriously grant hope to every biblical counseling meeting is the sufficiency of the Word of God. The sufficiency of the Word of God affirms that the Bible, and it alone, is enough both to save the sinner and to sanctify the man of God so as to grow him in Christlikeness.
