I feel most keenly the disgrace of circulating what I feel to be falsified copies of Holy Scripture (a reference to the A.V.?), and am most anxious to provide something to replace them.
at present I find the presumption in favour of the absolute truth – I reject the word infallibility – of Holy Scripture overwhelming.
the fanaticism of the bibliolaters, among whom reading so many ‘chapters’ seems exactly to correspond to the Romish superstition of telling so many dozen beads on a rosary
Think of that vile Textus Receptus leaning entirely on late MSS.; it is a blessing there are such early ones
If you make a decided conviction of the absolute infallibility of the N.T. practically asine qua non for co-operation, I fear I could not join you, even if you were willing to forget your fears about the origin of the Gospels.
With these views, can anyone say with confidence that these men are safe guides on the text of Scripture?
