promised that the book containing the divine revelation should be secure from these things.? W. Robertson Smith: ?If I am asked why I receive the Scriptures as the word of God and as the only perfect rule of faith and life, I answer with all the Fathers of the Protestant church: ?Because the Bible is the only record of the redeeming love of God; because in the Bible alone I find God drawing nigh to men in Jesus Christ, and declaring his will for our salvation. And the record I know to be true by the witness of his Spirit in my heart, whereby I am assured that none other than God himself is able to speak such words to my soul.? The gospel of Jesus Christ is the a]pax lego>menon of the Almighty. See Marcus Dods, The Bible, its Origin and Nature: Bowne, The Immanence of God, 66-115.
