Gilbert Tennet, 1744 on the Qualities of Scripture’s Canonicity

[Gilbert Tennent (1703-1764) was undoubtedly the single most important Presbyterian minister in North America before the War for Independence (1776-1783).] And here I may summarily observe, that the sacred Scriptures are the perfect and only Rule of our Faith and Practice, Hence in our Text they are said to make the Man of God perfect andContinue reading “Gilbert Tennet, 1744 on the Qualities of Scripture’s Canonicity”
