The Bible alone is our ultimate authority, not the pope, not the church, not the traditions of the church or church councils, still less personal intimations or subjective feelings, but Scripture only. Therefore, if any of these other authorities depart from Bible teaching, they are to be judged by the Bible and rejected.
The doctrinal standards of Cornerstone Reformed Church
“The effect of our knowledge rather ought to be, first, to teach us reverence and fear; and, secondly, to induce us, under its guidance and teaching, to ask every good thing from him, and, when it is received, ascribe it to him. For how can the idea of God enter your mind without instantly giving rise to the thought, that since you are his workmanship, you are bound, by the very law of creation, to submit to his authority?–that your life is due to him?–that whatever you do ought to have reference to him?”
