John Knox and Mary, Queen of Scots

“You interpret the Scriptures in one way,” said Mary to Knox, “and the Pope and the cardinals in another; whom shall I believe, and who shall be judge?”  “You shall believe,” replied Knox, “God, who plainly speaketh in His Word; and farther than the Word teacheth you, you shall believe neither the one nor the other – neither the Pope nor the Reformers – neither the Papists nor the Protestants.  The Word of God is plain in itself; if there is any obscurity in one place, the Holy Ghost, who is never contrary to Himself, explains it more clearly in other places, so that there can remain no doubt but unto such as are obstinately ignorant.”

I believe that this true even today, that we need to trust God’s word above the wisdom of others.

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
