9781331315254: A Plea for the Critical Study of the Scriptures Against Romanism and Rationalism: A Discourse (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Plea for the Critical Study of the Scriptures Against Romanism and Rationalism: A Discourse

"I know but little of the Hebrew," said one of the great Reformers, "but the little that I know, I would not exchange for worlds." This was the Reformation spirit, roused, at length, after the slumber of ages, to protest against any infallible expositor of God's Word - to assert the right of private judgment under the promised guidance of the Holy Ghost, and to subject every opinion to the test of Sacred Writ as the only infallible rule of faith and practice. The Protestant principle looked beyond versions, as it looked beyond creeds. It would be content only with searching out the very mind of the Spirit. Papacy and Infidelity can forego this task. And in proportion as the Scriptures have been held in reverence as the very Word of God for every man, in that proportion has the study of the originals been pursued.

Hence we challenge Romanism on the one hand, and Infidelity on the other, with the Scriptures in the sacred tongues. Our Protestant Bible is not King James' version, nor Luther's, nor the Geneva - not any nor all of these - so much as it is the Hebrew and Greek Testaments. But the Romanist's Bible is the Latin Vulgate, with its apocrypha and the endless traditions which they have set above the word of God. And this Bible of theirs is not as old as Christianity by some six hundred years. And hence let me say, that Church itself cannot be older than the seventh century, unless it was a Church without its Bible.

And what claim has their Bible to be standard in Christendom?
