Scripture, by C.H. Spurgeon :
Authority of :
"Always stand to it that your creed must bend to the Bible, and not the Bible to your creed, and dare to be a little inconsistent with yourselves, if need be, sooner than be inconsistent with God’s revealed truth"
Canon closed :
"I have little confidence in those persons who speak of having received direct revelationsfrom the Lord, as though he appeared otherwise than by and through the gospel. His word is so full, so perfect, that for God to make any fresh revelation to you or me is quite needless. To do so would be to put a dishonour upon the perfection of that word."
Criticism of :
"He that reads his Bible to find fault with it will soon discover that the Bible finds fault with him."
Neglect of :
"There is dust enough on some of your Bibles to write “damnation” with your fingers"
