I cannot forbid a person to marry several wives, for it does not contradict Scripture.Martin Luther
It grounds secular law upon Scripture, especially upon the principle of mercy . Alfred thus located his law code in a biblical lineage. His historical anthology of legal texts explains that the nature of Christian law is a system of justice in which mercy subsists.
A pacifist has a lot of difficulty reconciling pacifism with Scripture.mark driscoll
We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu Scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.j. robert oppenheimer
Jesus Christ, as he is attested to us in Holy Scripture, is the one Word of God whom we have to hear, and whom we have to trust and obey in life and in death.Karl Barth
And a lot of these things are happening around us, and somebody is going to get mad at me for saying what I am about to say right now, but I am going to give you my honest opinion: I think we have turned our back on the Scripture and on God Almighty and I think he has allowed judgment to fall upon us. I think that's what's going on.james dobson
Underneath all the arches of Scripture history, throughout the whole grand temple of the Scriptures, these two voices ever echo, man is ruined, man is redeemed.cyrus david foss
Many books in my library are now behind and beneath me. They were good in their way once, and so were the clothes I wore when I was ten years old; but I have outgrown them. Nobody ever outgrows Scripture; the book widens and deepens with our years.charles haddon spurgeon
The Scripture is to be its own interpreter, or rather the Spirit speaking in it; nothing can cut the diamond but the diamond; nothing can interpret Scripture but Scripture.richard watson

I defie the Pope and all his lawes. If God spare my life, ere many yeares I wyl cause a boy that driveth the plough to know more of the Scripture, than he doust.william tyndale
Our public prayers too often consist almost entirely of passages of Scripture not always judiciously chosen or well arranged and common-place phrases, which have been transmitted down for ages, from one generation to another, selected and put together just as we would compose a sermon or essay, while the heart is allowed no share in the performance; so that we may more properly be said to make a prayer than to pray.
Every sermon must have a solid rest in Scripture, and the pointedness which comes of a clear subject, and the conviction which belongs to well-thought argument, and the warmth that proceeds from earnest appeal.
To preach practical sermons as they are called, that is, sermons upon virtues and vices, without inculcating those great Scripture truths of redemption, grace, etc., which alone can incite and enable us to forsake sin and follow after righteousness, what is it but to put. together the wheels, and set the hands of a watch, forgetting the spring, which is to make them all go?
Those who devote themselves to the study of Sacred Scripture should always remember that the various hermeneutical approaches have their own philosophical underpinnings, which need to be carefully evaluated before they are applied to the sacred texts.”
Underneath all the arches of Scripture history, throughout the whole grand temple of the Scriptures, these two voices ever echo, man is ruined, man is redeemed.

One would think that a system loaded with such gross and vulgar absurdities as Scripture religion is could never have obtained credit ; yet we have seen what priest craft and fanaticism can do, and credulity believe.
I cannot forbid a person to marry several wives, for it does not contradict Scripture.
No geological difficulties, real or imagined, can be allowed to take precedence over the clear statements and necessary inferences of Scripture.
No doubt one may quote history to support any cause, as the devil quotes Scripture; but modern history is not a very satisfactory side-arm in political polemics; it grows less and less so.learned hand
'Tis a dangerous thing to engage the authority of Scripture in disputes about the natural world, in opposition to reason; lest time, which brings all things to light, should discover that to be evidently false which we had made Scripture to assert … We are not to suppose that any truth concerning the natural world can be an enemy to religion; for truth cannot be an enemy to truth, God is not divided against himself.
The Bhagavad-Gita is a true Scripture of the human race a living creation rather than a book , with a new message for every age and a new meaning for every civilization .
