Westminster Larger Catechism: Question 5

Question 5

What do the scriptures principally teach?

The scriptures principally teach, what man is to believe concerning God, and what duty God requires of man. (2 Tim. 1:13)


The Westminster Larger Catechism: With Scripture Proofs. (Oak Harbor, WA: Logos Research Systems, Inc., 1996).

This question and answer makes it clear that salvation is more than just moralism.  The emphasis here is not just on the moral duty of man but the doctrinal beliefs to which he is required to assent.  Right teaching or doctrine is necessary in regards to saving faith.
