What Others Have Said About the Bible

• “Greater is the authority of the Scriptures than all the powers of the human mind.”

• “Nobody ever outgrows scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.”
   C.H. Spurgeon

• “A thorough knowledge of the Bible is worth more than a college education.”
   Theodore Roosevelt

• “No educated man can afford to be ignorant of the Bible.”
   Theodore Roosevelt

• “…if God spare my life ere many years, I will cause a boy that driveth the plough, shall know more of the Scripture than thou dost.”
   William Tyndale (reply to an educated man who was defending erroneous teachings of the church)

• “Give me the plenary, verbal theory with all its difficulties rather than the doubt. I accept the difficulties and humbly wait for their solution. But while I wait I am standing on the rock.”
   Bishop J.C. Ryle

• “There are things in the old Book which I may not be able to explain, but I fully accept it as the infallible Word of God, and receive its teachings as inspired by the Holy Spirit.”
   Robert E. Lee

• “Nobody ever mastered the Bible by occasionally opening it and reading a random verse or two. Nobody ever mastered it by listening to someone else preach, no matter how gifted that person might be. The only way to master this Book is to study it as diligently as a doctor studies medicine or as an astronomer studies the stars.”
   John Phillips

• “This book will keep you from sin, or sin will keep you from this book.”

• “In all my perplexities and distresses, the Bible has never failed to give me light and strength.”
   Robert E. Lee

• “We accept the Scriptures as an all-sufficient and infallible rule of faith and practice, and insist upon the absolute inerrancy and sole authority of the Word of God. We recognize at this point no room for division, either of practice or belief, or even  sentiment. More and more we must come to feel as the deepest and mightiest power of our conviction that a ‘thus saith the Lord’ is the end of all controversy.”
J.M. Frost from “Baptist Why and Why Not” published in 1900 by the Sunday School Board
