Bow to the Word
by Don Fortner
I bow to the Word of God.
There are many good creeds, confessions, and catechisms
written by men, clearly setting forth the gospel of the grace
of God; but I do not pin my faith to the writings of any man,
or any group of men, no matter how much I may admire them.
The Word of God alone is my rule of faith and practice.
I bow my will and my reason, my experience and my feelings,
to the Word of God. I do not understand all that is written
in the Scriptures; but I believe it all.
I bow to the authority of Holy Scripture.
I do so unreservedly.
Let men call it bigotry, ignorance, or whatever they may,
I am not even open to the consideration of any thought,
idea, or evidence which contradicts the Book of God.
