The Glorious Art of Self-Suspiscion

"It remains true nonetheless that in principle Scripture provides clear and exact guidance for every detail and department of life, and if we come to Scripture teachable and expectantly God himself will seal on our minds and hearts a clear certainty as to how we should be have in each situation that faces us. 'God hath appointed means of the cure of blindness and error,' wrote Baxter, 'Come into the light, with due self-suspicion, and impartiality, and diligently use all God's means, and avoid the causes of deceit and error, and the light of truth will at once show you the truth.'"

From J.I. Packer's The Quest for Godliness, p.113
