HOLY SCRIPTURE THE TEST
AN APPEAL TO ITS PARAMOUNT AUTHORITY
AGAINST CERTAIN PASSAGES
IN DR. HANCOCK'S “ DEFENCE,” AND IN THE
WRITINGS OF BARCLAY AND PENN.
BY RICHARD BALL.
“ The Bible has God for its Author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter."
“ The Bible, and the Bible only, is the religion of Protestants."
“ They” (our forefathers) « professed to be instructed in no new truths; they had nothing to add to the faith once delivered to the saints; they cordially acknowledged the Divine authority of the Holy Scriptures; they were deeply versed in the contents of the Sacred Volume; and they openly confessed that whatsoever doctrine or practice is contrary to its declarations, must be 6accounted and reckoned a delusion of the devil.'”.
Yearly Meeting's Epistle 1835.
