2 Timothy 3:14-15
But continue you in the things which you have learned and have been assured of, knowing of whom you have learned them;…
This we see even in human and moral learning, the Platonic doctrine grew famous because it was professed by , and the Peripatetic by . The scholars of did so confide in the dictates of their master, that when any one asked them a reason of what they held, they would give no other answer but "Our master said so." Young ministers should suspect their own judgments when they vary from a holy, aged Calvin Beza, and all the churches of God. As young lawyers and physicians observe the principles and practices of the serious and grave professors of their way, especially when grounded on maxims and rules of art, so should young divines. It ill becomes a young raw physician to contradict a whole college of physicians, or a puny lawyer a bench of judges, or a young divine a whole assembly of divines.
(T. Hall, B. D.)
