The Authority of Scripture

"Scriptures obtain full authority among believers only when men regard them as having sprung from heaven. The credibility of doctrine is not established until we are persuaded beyond doubt that God is its author...
No one can get even the slightest taste of right doctrine unless he be pupil of scripture...
The majesty of God subdues our bold rejection and compels us to obey."
JOHN CALVIN, Institutes
Tasty stuff as I prepare to speak on this subject later this month.
