Test Everything By the Word

“The true work of the Spirit is evidenced by a rational belief in the Scripture. The Spirit works by the means determined and declared in the Word. By the Word we must test everything really belonging, or pretended to belong, to this work of regeneration.” .” –John Owen, “Works” Vol. 3, p. 216-225 as quoted by Richard Rushing in “Voices from the Past” (Banner of Truth) p. 354

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.

    Amen! Scripture, rightly divided that we compare ANY testimony, ANY message, or ANY claim against.
