Begin with Heavenly Teaching

Richard A. Muller, Post Reformation Reformed Dogmatics, Volume 2, Holy Scripture: The Cognitive Foundation of Theology, page 84:

The position [in the Formula Consensus Helvetica] is very similar to the one taken at the beginning of the Westminster Confession, although more detailed, and it is little different from statements concerning the gift and preservation of the Scriptures in Reformed dogmatics as early as Calvin’s Institutes and Bullinger’s Decades. [Calvin Inst. I.vi.2 “If true religion is to beam upon us, our principle must be, that it is necessary to begin with heavenly teaching . . . . And surely in this respect God has with singular Providence provided for mankind in all ages.”]
