Must Leave It
False religions have something in common. They all must abandon the Sriptures by ignoring them, substituting, changing, adding, subtracting, many other ways to leave the Word. They cannot use Scripture to sustain the false ways and must find some other authority than the Bible. Therefore, they have produced many different religious authorities either as on equality with the Bible or superior to it.
The plea of faithful brethen is first a plea for the exclusive authoriy of the Bible; a claim Scripture makes for itself (2 Tim. 3:16, 17). As long as we hold to the revealed WQord we shall stay on track. To leave it is to leave God.
