Are those individuals or churches who have been most distinguished for their attachment and adherence to creeds more regardless of the Bible than other professing Christians?  Do they appear to esteem the Bible less?  Do they read it less?  Do they appeal to it less frequently as their grand ultimate authority?  Do they quote it more rarely or with less respect in their preaching?  Where they once refer to their creeds or catechisms for either authority or illustration in the pulpit, do they not, notoriously, refer to the Bible a thousand times?  Do they take less pains than others to impress the contents of the sacred volume on the minds of their children and hold it forth as the unceasing object of study to all? – Samuel Miller (1769-1850)
