Fox: understanding the Scriptures

Monday, October 10, 2016
    Feast of Paulinus, Bishop of York, Missionary, 644
    When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.
    —John 16:13 (ESV)
    It be a certain truth, that none can understand [the prophets’ and apostles’] writings aright, without the same Spirit by which they were written.
    ... George Fox (1624-1691), Journal, v. I, Philadelphia: B. & T. Kite, 1808, p. 110 (see the book)
    See also John 16:13; Rom. 8:16; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; 1 John 5:6
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant that I may hear and respond the Spirit’s prompting in Scripture.
