Jeremiah 6:16

A great London fog has come down upon some of the ministers
and some of the churches in the shape of what is called
"advanced thought" in Biblical interpretation. All of them,
and without any exception, deny the full inspiration of the
Bible. Genesis is an allegory, and there are many myths in
the Bible, and they philosophize and guess and reason and
evolute until they land in a great continent of mud, from
which, I fear, for all eternity they will not be able to

a man could have made any important change in the Bible
without immediate detection. If there had been an element
of weakness, or of deception, or of disintegration the Book
would long ago have fallen to pieces. If there had been one
loose brick or cracked casement in this castellated truth,

discovered and broken through that imperfection. The fact
that the Bible stands intact, notwithstanding all the
furious assaults on all sides upon it, is proof to me that
it is a miracle, and every miracle is of God.

been written in such a way that he should allow seventy
generations to pass away and be buried before the letter
could be understood? That would be a very bright father who
should write a letter for the guidance and intelligence of
his children, not understandable until a thousand years
