First President, Southwestern Baptist Theological
modern devotees of higher criticism must wait each week for the
mail from Germany to know what to believe or preach, to find how
much, if any, of their Bible remains
-- "Theological Seminaries and Wild Gourds"
Lee, keep the Seminary lashed to the Cross. If heresy ever comes
in the teaching, take it to the faculty. If they will not hear you
and take prompt action, take it to the trustees of the Seminary.
If they will not hear you, take it to the Convention that appoints
the Board of Trustees, and if they will not hear you, take it to
the great common people of our churches. You will not fail to get
a hearing then.
--"Deathbed Commission to his Successor," L.R. Scarborough
The modern cry, "Less creed and more liberty," is a degeneration
from the vertebrate to the jelly fish, and means less unity and
less morality, and it means more heresy.
It is a positive
and very hurtful sin to magnify liberty at the expense of doctrine.
--An Interpretation of the English Bible
