I hey arc the inspired word of god they arc precious monuments of the lives doctrines and miracles of Christ and his apostles. They Are useful for doctrine for re proof for confirmation and instruction. All i assert of them is they Are not the sole Independent Rule of Faith and Llma As to the Mere letter of scripture they Are not the Rule at All it is the sense and not the letter that is our Rule. And moreover that Jesus Christ never intended them As such Jesus Christ wrote nothing neither did to command his apostles to write. His command is go and preach and teach All nations and you yourself have acknowledged that this w As the Rule during the Days of the apostles and von could not disprove that the same infallible authority descended to their successors in the ministry. _ _ have done so hut 1 insist that the fact of the apostle being inspired by the holy ghost to write is equiv rent to n command and As god never commands without Tust cause it must be that they might become the Rule of Faith to following rut your assertions upon this Point make the scriptures no Rule at All. have asserted nothing that i have not proved or can prove. I have asserted and proved that the command of Christ was to preach and teach therefore whatever the apostles preached and taught whether written or not written is of divine authority. And hence the apostle requires the Church to observe All that he had taught whether by Cord he says or by our epistle. The scriptures were written by piecemeal some paits to one Church and Oiler some to another and the cause was this a the Othis tics not having the Gilt of ubiquity when difficulties or errors arose in the Distant churches which they had planted wrote to them such instructions As were necessary others wrote the gospels for different purposes and what was thus written coming from the same inspired source As the unwritten word was of equal authority with it. So Lar therefore As circumstances rendered it necessary to write that Noce Silv is equivalent to a command but i deny that there was any command or any necessity equivalent to a command or Eliut it Ever was written As the sole Independent Rule of Faith. Aslo your Asser Liou that the promises of Christ regard the apostles teaching by the scriptures you have first to prove that the scriptures arc As Plain As the living voice of the apostles and that no living voice is necessary to explain them and that they contain All that the apostles taught and that they can never he lost which you can never do for Many Hooks arc already lost w hich have been written by the inspired prophets and apostles. Where then is the proof that Christ will he with the scriptures till the end of the world and How do they guide men into All truth allow much plainer it is to understand these promises made to the ministry of the Church in the persons of the apostles. And How much Moro congenial with other promises made to the visible Church a that she shall be built upon a Rock and that the gales of hell shall not prevail against her , then the certainty of the doctrines of the written word must depend upon the teaching authority of the Christian ministry Yea and the very authority of the scriptures too. Rut st. Luke tells Theophi Lus he wrote his gospel to him a a that a might know the Verity of those things in which he had been Jesus Christ himself told the jews to search the scriptures that they might come to a know ledge of his divine character and Mission. St. Paul commends the bureaus for searching the scriptures to see whether these things were so or not. Thus overturning your Assumption altogether. For if the certainty of the Ophilus a Faith did not depend upon what he heard but upon the written gospel of st. Luke if the certainty of the character and 1 doctrines of our Saviour himself was to to drawn from the scriptures and if the Faith of the i reans was commended because it was founded not so much upon the declarations of even an inspired a it Ostle As upon the testimony of the scriptures a fort Tori the scriptures Are a stronger and Inore sufficient Rule to us than the apse Dixit of fallible men is an axiom of logic that a a that which proves too much proves nothing at will you Sav or. Mason if the scribes and pharisees to whom our Saviour then spoke could not discover this testimony concerning Christ in the scripture As most certainly Many of them pretended not to do that therefore his divine authority was not infallibly certain or in other words was not the divine Mission of Christ thus certain whether they found it there or not would an infallible apostle have been to be disbelieved if the lie reans through their own blindness had not found in the scriptures that these things were so then what becomes of your Faith in Christ and what becomes of your former assertion that the apostles were infallible and their preaching and teaching the ouly Rule of Faith during their Day As to the narrations which the Ophilus had heard they might be from unauthorized or at least less authorized persons
