Does the Belgic Confession Undermine Confessional Subscription?

“Reflection on confessional subscription often makes use of BC art. 7.  At times the article is used to undermine having confessions (cf. 2.5.2.5).  However, the scope of this article does not cover what it is then implied to cover.  The point in the article is that human documents will never equal the authority of divine Scripture and God’s truth.  The article does not state that, within the confines of divine Scripture and God’s truth, human documents are to be rejected as binding.”

By This Our Subscription, R.C. Janssen, 398.
