Paraclesis and the Authority of Scripture

By Tim Butler | Posted at 1:39 AM

From Erasmus's “Paraclesis,” concerning the authority of Scripture:

It is no school of theologians who has attested to this Author for us but the Heavenly Father Himself through the testimony of the divine voice…

Note that Erasmus does not place the authority he gives to Scripture in the church structure, but in God's attestation. This is huge, even if Erasmus ultimately did not follow the Reformers.
