I’m aware that I do not have many readers here, but I would like for any of you to tell or guess who said the following. If you have no idea, maybe you could guess what the context of the quote might be? What is the subject being discussed?
You have the idea that the Bible is pristine, directly from God to you. However the Bible took a very, very long time to get to you and in that time there have been many, many people who have handled it. The Holy Spirit has declared the truthfulness of the Bible to us, in that we have not just a belief but a knowledge that the Bible is true. We do not have a witness that the Bible is unaltered by fallible man.
Happy guessing. Also, please invite all your friends to comment also. If you do know certainly, please do not give your source of knowledge.
