whole of his well known letters to Mr. Hartlib

But I would farther ask those persons who conceive that " Scnpture and tradition taken together, are the loint ruie oi iaun." wnetner tnev cio not oeiieve tne true unurcn is " mint unon trie foundation 01 tne avosties aiio prowler. Jesus unnst nimseit oeine tnecmei corner stone r" And it they admit this, then I would inquire is not every doctrine necessary for a Christian to know,revealed m the writings of the apostles and prophets ? Christ and his apostles condemned those who rested on human traditions instead of the Old Testament: and if this was spoken with reference to the books of Moses and the prophets, it is true a fortiori of the canon of the Old and New Testament together. Certain modes and Tory Burch Reva Flats forms in themselves not essential and so not explicitly laid down, but left open in the Bible, may be fairly referred to tradition ; but this is an entirely different thing from basing on it articles of faith. " We look," says Mede, " alter tne rorms. rues, ana aiscimine oi antiauitv. and endeavour to bring our Tory Burch Outlet own as near as we can to that pattern but the extreme care of this learned writer witn remira to runaamentats. appears tnrouznout cue whole of his well known letters to Mr. Hartlib. I mention Mede, because the writer of the Catena Patrum has quoted him in his favor, with the same infelicity which mams ms cnoice or several oteer autnors.

Neither Scripture nor tradition have weight with them but by that authoritythat is.
