“Nothing can possess more commanding interest than the way in which the Word is everywhere put forward throughout the sacred cannon, together with the immense importance of strict obedience thereto. Obedience is due from us to God’s Word, simply because it is His Word. To raise a question when He has spoken is blasphemy. We are in the place of a creature. He is the Creator. He may, therefore, justly claim obedience from us. The infidel may call this ‘blind obedience,’ but the Christian calls this intelligent obedience, inasmuch as it is based upon the knowledge that it is God's Word to which he is obedient. If a man had not God’s Word he might well be said to be in blindness and darkness, for there is not so much as a single ray of divine light within or around us but what emanates from God's pure and eternal Word. All that we want to know is that God has spoken, and then obedience becomes the very highest order of intelligent acting. When the soul gets up to God, it has reached the very highest source of authority. No man, nor body of men, can claim obedience to their word, because it is theirs; and hence the claims of the Church of Rome are arrogant and impious.”
(C H Mackintosh, Notes on the Pentateuch, 28-29)
