Good Alexander Campbell quote
Here's another Campbell quote that I will probably put in the sidebar. And just a reminder...no human contrived words are authoritative, but we are to encourage and edify one another. That is the only purpose in quoting voices from the past.
- "But men cannot give up their opinions, and therefore, they can never unite, says one. We do not ask them to give up their opinions--we ask them only not to impose them upon others. Let them hold their opinions, but let them hold them as private property. The faith is public property; opinions are, and always have been private property. Men have foolishly attempted to make the deductions of some great minds the common measure of all Christians. Hence the deductions of a Luther, and a Calvin, and a Wesley, have been the rule and measure of all who coalesce under the names of these leaders. It is cruel to excommunicate a man because of the imbecility of his intellect."
