ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY, THOMAS CRANMER, ON HOLY
"If there were any word of God beside the Scripture, we could never be certain of God's Word; and if we be uncertain of God's Word, the devil might bring in among us a new word, a new doctrine, a new faith, a new church, a new god, yea himself to be a god. If the Church and the Christian faith did not stay itself upon the Word of God certain, as upon a sure and strong foundation, no man could know whether he had a right faith, and whether he were in the true Church of Christ, or a synagogue of Satan."
This is a bit of an "introduction" to the topic of the next Article of Religion, dealing with Holy Scripture. Hopefully I'll have that post ready sometime this week.
