It Is Written

There is a conclusiveness and finality in this expression that carries with it an irresistible appeal to everyone whose heart's fondest desire may be voiced in the language of Hebrews 10:7: "Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God." It antagonizes and is antagonized by all who have a zeal for God that is mingled with and diluted by a determination to follow their own wills in part, no matter how small that part may be.

"It is written" gives an assurance that banishes incertitude, dispels every doubt, quells all fear, quenches every fiery dart of the wicked, and puts to flight every gainsayer. He who is intrenched behind that which is written is encompassed by a wall that is impregnable to every assault of skepticism, sophistry [fallacy], philosophy or "science, falsely so called."

These words fell so often from the Savior's lips, and so frequently occurred in the writings of his apostles, that they may well be accepted as the slogan of everyone whose faith stands "not in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." [1 Cor. 2:5]

Absolutely there is nothing of worth to the spiritually-minded outside of that which is written. We know nothing of God, Christ, Holy Spirit or angelic hosts save what is written. Heaven and its glories and the blessedness of those who attain that blissful abode, can be viewed only through the medium of the written word, and God's hatred of sin and the awful doom of sinners can there alone be learned.
