A stated previously, Irenaeus puts much emphasis on the belief in all three figures. Ultimately, Irenaeus believes that the Rule of Faith is one of the major attributes that Christians must have in order to be Christian. He backs this up by mentioning the reasons why the Rule of Faith is so essential for true Christians to remember. He furthers this by giving the arguments against his viewpoint and omits them by giving his truth to what the Rule of Faith is. Overall, while there are many major beliefs that can come from Christianity, the major belief that helps with the interpretation of scriptures and the Bible can be seen in the Rule of Faith.
Introduction According to second Timothy all Scripture is the “inspired” Word of God. The text reads, “All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness” (2 Tim. 3:16 NRSV). The early church understood that Scripture was inspired by God, passed on from God to the Apostles and from the Apostles to the church. Because the doctrine came from God, the church trusted and believed that the doctrine was authoritative and therefore unchangeable.
They directly influence each other. Evangelicalism, Liberalism, and Neo-Orthodoxy all have differing views of the nature and authority of Scripture. Evangelicalism takes up the view that the Bible, Scripture, is infallible (Lane, 2006, p. 255). Scripture is God’s word and is therefore fully truth (Lane, 2006, p. 256). People under Evangelicalism equate Scripture with God’s spoken word, and they believe that though God and humans are both authors, the human author was divinely prepared by God to write out His word (Lane, 2006, p. 257).
It becomes important to uphold and defend the Bible’s authority and the power does not come from any simple measure employed by us individually. It is up to the congregation to openly confess the analytical propositions without fear and become actively engaged in the faith and obedience of which it asks (p. 56).

Transparency exists personally as a Christian when witnessing and teaching through the authority of Holy Scripture. This becomes solely dependent on the relationship that exists with the congregation and the Bible being the solitary authority.
The term 'Scripture' refers to the sacred writing of the Old and New Testament. Sacred Scripture are the books which 'contain the truth of God?s revelation and were composed by human authors inspired by the Holy Spirit' (CCC 105). Sacred Scripture is one of the several names denoting the inspired writings which make up the Old and New Testament. The words of the Sacred Scriptures, 'for their part proclaim the works and bring light to the mystery they contain'. The term 'Tradition' refers to the living transmission of the Gospel in the Church.
Being limited in our ability to think as God does, one must believe and trust through the faith which has be built through the very word that has been written.

This can be seen through the derived word ‘mirror.’ This can be pulled from portions in the Bible, such as 2 Timothy, Hebrews, and Jeremiah. Also, Doctrine tempers and becomes a determent as far as revelation. It can be broken down in two parts: Special and General Revelation.
John told the believers to test the spirits to know how to recognize the Spirit of God. In 1 John 4:2-3 John tells us that “Every spirit recognizes that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God…” With our culture, today and the things that have been going on, it is important for our Church to know the truth of God from the lies of man. The Church oversees handling the Word of God correctly

The real question is whether the doctrine of the Trinity is in the Bible or the God of the Bible a triune God ? This question leads us to seek the revelation of God presented in the Bible to be able to conclude if we are forced to admit that the Triune God. One thing to mention about the Trinity is that the word trinity does not appear in the Bible, but the word " Trinity" is a word that , although unbiblical , intends to make education possible to the Scripture about God and the relationship between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Here we touch on an important point, namely that it is best to keep the truth of Scripture than the words of Scripture.
Christians call the second type of revelation special revelation which, unlike general revation, is not provided to everyone in the same universal way.
