the proper use by Christians of Scripture

There are 39 Articles of Faith for the Anglican Church. One in particular is my focus this week:

Article VI. Of the sufficiency of the Holy Scriptures for Salvation

Holy Scriptures containeth all things necessary to salvation: so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man, that it should be believed as an article of the faith, or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation…

It goes on to list the books of Scripture, including to so-called Apocrypha (something Wesley edited).
