"Let us require no better authority than God Himself for determining what is worthy or unworthy of Him."

(Robins, 1963, 67)

     "If after the work of six days it be said of God that >he rested and was refreshed= . . . let us believe that it is not beneath the dignity of God  . . . to be refreshed in that which refreshed Him . . . For however we may attempt to soften down  such expressions by a latitude of interpretation, when applied to the Deity, it comes in the end to precisely the same."

(Robins, 67)

     "Our safest way is to form in our minds such a conception of God, as shall correspond with His own delineation and representation of Himself in the sacred writings."

(Robins, 67)

     "We may be sure that sufficient care has been taken that the Holy Scriptures should contain nothing unsuitable to the character or dignity of God, and that God should say nothing of Himself which could derogate from His own majesty."

(Robins, 67)
