The means whereby Truth ought to be established
"In argument with 'the common people,' how do we substantiate the views we present on the great leading truths? Assuredly not by philological niceties, nor by laying the stress on mere words that look to teach a certain doctrine, but by masses of arguments from scripture that demonstrate the indispensableness of just such or such a view." - H. H. Dobney; Quoted in "Herald of the Kingdom..." Vol. 1 Pg.135
"When the gospel or part of the Gospel is represented as so mysterious that it requires the most skillful pen to formulate propositions beyond the comprehension of plain people, it is then and thereby perverted." - Christadelphian Advocate, Sept. 1901
"Those who would "study to be workmen that need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth," should always be on guard not to apply one scripture in a way to contradict other scriptures."
-Bro. Williams; The World's Redemption Pg. 225; Ch. 12 under heading "The Kingdom Nigh"
"Precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little and there a little:" - Isaiah 28:10
"No philologist, however skilled in Hebrew and Greek, is competent to render a critical and accurate version on the scriptures, who is ignorant of the tru import of the sure word of prophecy."-Bro. Thomas; Herald of the Kingdom, Vol. 2 Pg. 174
"The theosophist reasons out from insufficient data a crude theory which pleases his fleshly mind, and then goes to the bible to cull sounding epithets to sanctify it; instead of allowing God's holy word to teach him as a babe, and then to prove all things by its rule. This procedure is emphatically the folly of our age."-Bro. Thomas; Herald of the Kingdom Vol. 2 Pg. 149
