I bow to the Word of God.
There are many good creeds, confessions, and catechisms written by men, clearly setting forth the gospel of the graceof God; but I do not pin my faith to the writings of any man, or any group of men, no matter how much I may admire them. The Word of God alone is my rule of faith and practice.
I bow my will and my reason, my experience and my feelings,to the Word of God. I do not understand all that is written in the Scriptures; but I believe it all.
I bow to the authority of Holy Scripture. I do so unreservedly. Let men call it bigotry, ignorance, or whatever they may, I am not even open to the consideration of any thought, idea, or evidence which contradicts the Book of God.
