Seite 102 - And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off; it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched, where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
Seite 156 - Now the just shall live by faith; but if any man draw back," etc. The proper translation is, " but if he draw back." The italicized words in John iii, 34, " God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him" improperly limit the sense, and should be omitted.
Seite 124 - So likewise the Father is Almighty, the Son Almighty : and the Holy Ghost Almighty. And yet there are not three Almighties : but one Almighty.

The editors substitute " A Son of God," and they have omitted to acknowledge the variation. Upon this most important distinction between A Son and...

To which I answer, that I allow to the makers of systems, and their followers, to invent and use what distinctions they please, and to call things by what names they think fit. But I cannot allow them, or to any man, an authority to make a religion for me, or to alter that which God hath revealed.
Seite 22 - Saviour's and his apostles' preaching, we have showed through the whole history of the evangelists and the Acts. And I challenge them to show that there was any other doctrine, upon their assent to which, or disbelief of it, men were pronounced believers or unbelievers ; and, accordingly received into the church of Christ, as members of his body, as far as mere believing could make them so, or else kept out of it : this was the only gospel article of faith which was preached to them. And if nothing...
