“The authority of the Bible is in itself, because it is God’s word.
There is no satisfactory middle ground between full acceptance and complete rejection.
If it is God’s word its witness concerning itself is of primary importance:
that witness we have seen to be consistent and uncompromising.
We decide our attitude to it, and so doing determine whether we will accept infallible divine guidance, or set up a standard of our own by which to guide our lives.”
– John Carter
