Tertullian on the Ability to Know God From the Scriptures

"So that we might obtain an ampler and more authoritative knowledge at one of Himself and of His plans and will, God has added a written revelation. This revelation is on behalf of everyone whose heart is set on seeking God, that seeking they may find, and finding they may believe, and believing they may obey."
-Tertullian, Apology, cited in Gregg R. Allison, Historical Theology (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2011), 139.
